    Mark Fisher Photographer - Real Person

    IHello There

    I Have spent four years dealing with name fraud

    There are many with the same name. This has happen to others in the past.

    To lose your meta tags, because other claim to be you.

    Then lose Money and Contracts, end up on the street.

    Then, You Fight back hard. You Have Your Work And Your Name
    (What Is Left Of It)

    To Pick Up The Wreckage Is Very Hard.

    Your Forum Reported A Mark Fisher Photo. This Is Not True

    I was Not In L.A. I am In New York. Therefore Fraud Has Occurred.

    Nobody Is Above The Law, Identity Theft is a crime.

    Think About it...

    Long story. Basically, someone claiming to be an "agent" of Mark Fisher, with the same writing style as the OP (every sentence separated by a white space, Every Word Beginning With A Capital Letter), wrote to me last night and claimed Cyburbia was hosting a photo attributed to him, even though he didn't take it. It turned out to be a photo in a blogdowntown post that appeared in Buzz (our urban planning blog aggregator), authored by someone with the same name. The email:

    We Receive An Alert About A Photo, Mark Fisher Did.

    This Is The Production Company For

    Mark Fisher In New York City.

    He Does Do Music Images, For The Last 45 Years.

    We Did Contact His Management And There Was No Shoot

    Of This Subject Material.

    Please Correct The Photo Credit, With A Middle Name.

    We Control The Service Mark For This Name.

    Please Add A Middle Name.

    Mark Fisher Does Not Shoot This Type Of Low Quality Material.

    Many Try To Interfere With Low Quality Images...

    You and Your Company Will Be Subject To Prosecution,

    Since It Was Released On Your Site.

    We Do Not Want Hear Any Excuses And Will Not Accept Any

    My response:

    This is an article that wasn't published by Cyburbia, but rather a blogger whose content appears in our aggregator of urban planning-related blogs, with credit to the original author and a link to the original source. [snip] The original source is http://blogdowntown.com/2011/03/6182...Los+Angeles%29. I suggest you contact the original author of the article, whose name also happens to be Mark Fisher, tell him you think their photographs are "low quality", that your client is the only Mark Fisher who is allowed to publish their photographs online, and that other Mark Fishers must either not publish photos online using their name, or else change their names so they aren't confused with your client. Good luck.
    Not spam, but stupidity. Thanks for the reports, though. We will now resume our regularly scheduled snark.

    Also, I am a real person too, and the rumors of my being an advanced AI program are just that.

    I Doubt You Exist.

    Along With Everybody Else Here.

    I Believe Everyone Here Is A Figment Of My Vivid Imagination.

    Filled With High Quality Photographs That I Took.

    Not The Low Quality Junk All Of You Shoot With Your Vivitar Point And Shoot From Wal-Mart.

    The Trashy Gray Cinder Block Old School Wal-Mart In The Town Full Of Single Wide Pre-HUD Trailers Where You Are And Not The Nice Supercenter They Just Built Near Me.

    They Still Sell Crappy Vivitars There But Also Fairly Decent Cameras If You're Into Entry Level Prosumer Gear

    Not That I Would Ever Be Into Something As Lowly As A Canon Rebel DSLR

    My Cameras Cost More Than Your House

    And Not A House In Detroit Either But A House In A Place Like Fort Wayne

    I Also Doubt The Existence Of This So-Called Pool You Claim To Have.

    No Person Who Claims To Be A Planner Can Claim To Have Such Worldly Splendor.

    I Also Demand That The One Dude In Grand Rapids With The Same Name As Me Who Is In Change His Name.

    Because I Was Born First And He's Too Close To Veloise For Comfort And She Might Get Confused If She Ever Meets Him

    Michaelskis Too

    Mr. Dan

    I Think You Are Robo Poster And Not A Real Person
    Can You Prove This Wrong?
    You Can Fight Back Hard But Can Not Prove Me Wrong Of This Subject Material
    There Is No Such Place As Michigan
    It Only Exists In Your Poorly Photographed Images
    There Is No Veloise There Is No Michaelskis
    Not For A Long Time

    I Have A Real Pool Full With Water Unless The Water Leaks Out And Then I Must Refill
    I Have Posted Images For Your Proof

    And I Have A Hot Tub.
    Who Else On The Phony Webnet Site Has Both

    Mr. RichmondJohnJake

    I Think You Don't Know Real Hot Tubbin'
    Like The Tremendous Movie Hot Tub Time Machine.
    You Only Speak About Low Quality Tubbin'
    Not The Exclusive Party Hot Tubbin' I Produce and Represent

    You Must Provide Cost Estimates For Hot Tub
    To Give Me Proof Of Your Quality
    You Are Not In California Or Florida Now
    You Are On The Internets For All of Us To Know It
    Therefore Fraud Has Occurred
    My Disappointment Outweighs My Intellect

    And Mark Fisher just gave me a phone call. At 10:20 PM.

    "You run a site called cyberia dot com? This is Mark Fisher. It's time for us to finally have a nice, clean talk."

    Creepy.

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    So a couple years after the big thing he calls late at night for a "nice" talk. Sorry, unless it's a family emergency I don't talk to anyone nicely at 10:30 PM.

    So a quick google of Mark Fisher shows me there is an architect, a governor candidate for Mass., a newspaper editor, and more.

    'Cause I'm Mark Fisher, yes the real Mark Fisher

    All you other Mark Fishers are just imitating

    So won't the real Mark Fisher please stand up

    Please stand up, please stand up?
