...so you have the option of NOT re-blogging /re-posting / liking stuff that was stolen from Tom
The list will be expanded as people tell me (e.g. in the comments to this post) what the other pictures looked like.
1. taken at a ski resortupdated: (thanks a bunch anonymous!!!! ^_^)
2. in a hot tub that has a green tinge
3. with black hair, holding a dog in a shirt
4. in a chair with blonde hair and a blue shirt
5. riding a bike down a path
6. from the shoulders up, black unruly hair, black top, looking straight to camera, looking sleepy/grumpy, pale grey background, perhaps a picture on the wall just showing on the right
7. there was one of him with blonde unruly hair and some scruffupdated: (a big thanks to Fiona SnakeCharmed McGuire for this one!)
8. Younger Tom (in his teens or so), wearing baggy combats and a baggy jumper. Background mainly scenery. Maybe a holiday photo.
Edit: (Thanks to redskye1972 for this one)
#8 is NOT from FaceBook, it was from his MySpace, which he left open for five years and fans found it in 2011.
If anyone knows any of these pics and can describe them in more detail (e.g. other people in the pic? Sunny weather? Cloudy weather? Is he standing on the right or the left? what colour is the dog's fur? Is it a wooden chair? ) please feel free to add info!
Also:Kudo's, lots of good karma and many, many thanks to the folks who have taken down private pictures after hearing that these pics had been stolen from Tom
If you come across a pic which you're quite certain is one of the stolen ones
, and you want to take action
, here's a template for a message you can send to the poster (just fill in the blanks)
a while ago, someone hacked Tom's personal facebook account and stole his private pictures and shared them on the internet.
A lot of people don't know it happened or don't know what the pictures look like, so fans have been compiling a list of what the pics looked like, in order to enable fans who posted one of the stolen pictures to identify those and take them down.
Somebody just came across this picture that you posted here:
and there's a chance that it's stolen picture no. ..... on this list:http://lokisarmy-hq.livejournal.com/1223.html
You might want to keep the pic up or you might want to take it down....either is entirely up to you.
But at least, now you know the background of this picture so you can make an informed decision, whichever way it goes.
Best wishes and kind regards,
If you come across a pic which you suspect might be one of the stolen ones
, but you're not sure, and you still want to take action
, here's a message you can send to the poster:
Hi there ^_^ You re-blogged a pic of Tom that looks grainier/more informal than the usual, official ones. Thing is, a while back Tom's fb account was hacked and someone took his private pictures and posted them all over the 'net, where they are still getting re-posted. I'm NOT sure if the pic you posted is one of the stolen pics, but could you maybe check the source to make sure it isn't? An (incomplete) list of the stolen pics can be found here lokisarmy-hq(dot)livejournal(dot)com/122
.....On how to use this list in a way that's CONSIDERATE and RESPECTFUL of other FANS:
TOM says he doesn’t want a specific pic posted?
If you post anyway, you’re an asshole.
Another FAN asks you not to post a specific pic, but you have doubt that there’s really a good reason for that?
It’s YOUR call to make and that’s O.K.
We have to take into consideration that the list of stolen pics was compiled by fans who were around when the whole thing went down. The info does not come directly from Tom. So people might have doubts about the lists’ accuraccy.
And if someone firmly believes that the pic he / she is posting is NOT one of the stolen ones and that there’s an error in the list, then they’re acting in good faith and that’s something that is, as far as I’m concerned, o.k..
Also, as far as I’m aware, Tom has made no public statement about whether or not he would like to see the pics off the ‘net, off the public space, or not.
Granted, it’s highly likely, because most people who have pics stolen from their PRIVATE accounts and publicly distributed would be angry and upset about this and would be quite happy if the damage could be undone (or at least, if people were making a visible effort to undo the damage). However there’s also a small percentage of people who would shrug such an incident off and move on….and someone posting some of the stolen pics, knowing that they are stolen pics, might tell themselves “Tom doesn’t care. There’s no evidence, no statement that he minds….so why not?”….and as long as Tom doesn’t say differently, there’s no way to tell if they’re mistaken in that belief or not.
Fans can chip in with what they know about the incident, so that other fans are enabled to make a decision based on what information is available and based on how they themselves evaluate that information.…but unless Tom makes a direct statement about his wishes concerning the matter, I feel that one should respect other people’s right to make a different call.
