So you're angry and want to take it out on another user.
I'm glad we've come
to the real basis of this conversation.
The real basis of this conversation is that I want some solid practical
advice that will prevent the same thing happening again. Not just to me, but
to other editors.
While it's been an interesting conversation, the best advice has been from

1. Get someone else to take a photograph of you.
2. Have that person upload the image and release it into the public domain.
Now I can do that, but if the person who took the photograph is unknown then
the situation becomes problematical. I think we are all agreed that it is no
great sin and unlikely to result in a lawsuit, but it still seems to be a
grey area depending on AGF, and as we know, there are users who do not AGF.
