Enough!

When I say "link back to me" when you plunder these images I'm not just saying it for the good of my health.
I pay out a hefty slice of my wages to buy these magazines. I then spend considerable time getting the best possible scan. I then post them for people to use and enjoy, for free, with no crappy ads clogging up the page.
For people to then re-post them wholesale on their own sites, blogs and Tumblr accounts without even the slightest acknowledgement of where they came from is beginning to get right on my fucking tits! Feel free to repost them but have the good manners to say where you got them from. Either that or buy your own fucking magazines.
You know who you are, and so do I.

Vintage Scans - Accept No Imitations.

Can I get you another Brandy Alexander, sir?

I have only found this site recently (via the urban woo) but am enjoying it.

Here's hoping you kick against the, err, whoever, and keep up the good work.

A vote of thanks from someone who has not reposted an image and has no intention of doing so but if I did I would give credit where it's due.

people are just too too much sometimes, aren't they? I have saved several of your pieces, thank you, but I haven't used any yet. I'll shoot you a picture when I do. & remember, don't let the bastards get you down!

You're wonderful.
& thank you.

"get on my fucking tits." HA! Love that saying ;) I agree. In fact, when I find someone stealing my stuff with no acknowledgment I ask them to remove, reminding them of my copyright notice. If they don't remove I start leaving comments until they do.

Many thanks, comrades. I do enjoy the occasional gin-fuelled tantrum.
Enough of my whining, on with the boobies!

Don't think I've used your images - but you deserve a link anyway!

Well Said Sir!

Thanks for all the time and trouble scanning and uploading. I can sympathize with your situation. I get scans ripped from my blog without any attribution all the time.

Well said... I have saved a few in a folder called vintage scans, so I can put a link to your site whenever I use them. Thanks for all your efforts. Do not let the crude get you down. I have a link to your blog for a long time now, and somewhere in the past bloged about it.
cheers
