If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all. I like to share my photos of landscapes and night skies on social media, but I do not like when some people copy others' photos without permission or taking credit for someone else's photo, I have only experienced that someone has tried to take credit for my photos and I do not like it! All photos and videos are taken by me, do not copy my photos and videos without my permisson.
