It all began when I made an account on Model Mayhem...
(Lets skip to the problem)

So if anyone knows MM then they have read the rules and knows how it works with the forums and such... So being a "newbie" I asked a "newbie" question.. It actually didnt really have to do with MM, I guess its just the way I worded it.. but basically I wanted to know if i would be lame to put my name in my photos on myspace and such sites because my photos were being stolen by "haters" to make fake myspaces.

Anyways..I started getting all these rude comments about how my "self taken" photos werent great enough for anybody to steal..and then they started getting into copyrights and all these other details about things that werent even relevant to my question..

I realized my question may have came off the wrong way because maybe I wasnt specific enough and maybe I seemed conceited to all the professional models whos pictures were amazing compared to my cell phone photos..i dont know..so I defended myself and still appreciated everyone for the comments (even the ones that were attacking me)

(making fun of my question,my intelligence, my "self taken" photos,and my personal life)

I noticed that a moderator was hiding some comments that were being made..so why didnt the moderator hide the entire thread considering that in the rules it says that pretty much you shouldnt attack anyone and help the newbies out, not talk crap...

Just recently I realized that some of the comments being made were by moderators!
(By the way, one of my mistakes was writing in all caps, but I stopped immediately after the first comment was made) At the time i didnt realize my mistake...

Oh did I mention the whole thread that was made about me? it had about 40 posts. Supposedly it was about "newbies" in general but yet the whole conversation that was in my thread, was being made into a joke in the new thread...

Anyways I did get maybe 1 comment saying that I had a good grasp on staying positive and using the comments to make myself better..I admit I did deactivate my profile and when it asked why I rambled on... 

Then a few hours later I thought "No way! This isnt High School! Im not going to get upset over a childish thing".. So I "ReActivated" my profile and i CAM (Contact-A-Moderator) explaining that I wanted them to delete the thread because it was imberassing and I didnt want it to come up in the future..

I got a message back eventually saying they would take care of it and they did! That moderator was being very nice just like the 2nd or 3rd moderator that actually approved my account...The first time my account was denied and I resubmitted it making no changes and it was approved! 


In my opinion MM is like High School..

Theres alot of snobs who think they are better then everyone else, there are some weirdos (which btw, how were there accounts approved with all those strict rules?), there are some nice people, and all of this goes for the moderators too...

So im wondering why the other threads are still there and although mine was "locked" it can still be found.. and as for everything else I guess you got to treat it like High School and get through it.. Obviously im trying to be a model so I wasnt a dork in High School but I know how it feels to be terrorized..

The truth is im keeping my account only for the simple fact that I can find photographers, other then that im never posting anything or including myself in there little "community" again....
