So when I should be working on my 4-6 page final that is due this Wednesday by 11:59:59pm (as my professor stated to me), I got really bored and started looking at a some peoples pages on here. I was looking at pictures and of course people say on their pictures that this is them on pretty much every picture they have (and of course the comments people leave make me believe that the people really think this is that person). But am I the only one who seems to notice that the 5 pictures (for example) of this one person are actually 5 different people but my biggest curiosity is actually do these people who comment the pictures really not realize that that persons pictures are all of different people?


I'm not going to lie, I'm a little too observant when I'm bored.

different breasts, different nipples, or they crop the picture and you can tell by the jawline and lips that it's actually a pornstar. I guess if you are going to try to pass yourself off as someone else why even bother posting pics.

i do get a good laugh out of it though that they say it's them and that the people commenting on the picture really believe it's them.

I notice. I don't know what to say. Maybe just say, "Wow I wish I could do titty changing tricks, too."

This is actually really new. The database of pictures online are really extensive. I just researched on the site and I´m assuming they are starting with pictures that have a lot of matches already - pics that are constantly being used online.

I searched some of my pictures as well and did not get any match.

However, there are some members on lush that are using pics the tinEye finds all over the internet... which is really funny / specially when they claim to be themselves.

happy searching...

There is also a Thread started on exactly this issue...

I often wonder if I am the only one that is disappointed when they see that one of those comments are from a close friend. Do you lose respect for that person if they can't tell what is blatantly obvious??? Embarassed

I saw one of my close friends on here commented on someones picture who I obviously could tell wasn't the actual person, my friend really believed that it was them. So I sent him a message about his comment, and he really did not believe me. He thought it was the person, until i pointed out the big difference between two of the pictures that the person said was them. His reaction when he found out about it, was actually really funny.

i think it is so funny to see people passing themselves off as other people or porn stars for that matter. i've found some people that post pics off porn stars and saying its them. i was on youtube yesterday listening to music and there was this pic of a sexy school girl in the video. later i came on here and ended up looking at someones profile and one of there pics was of that same girl i saw on the video i watched. so i googled "sexy school girls" and i saw the pic. and for the record the girl that posted the pic was clamming it was her

maybe they just don't really care. a too observant eye may ruin the fantasy they have created in their heads.

I feel really warped cause I look at your Avatar and get turned on. Too many cartoons in my teen years have changed me.

I took a screen cap of Kim Wilde in the "shower" from her music video "Chequered Love" cause she looked hot in it. I made it my avatar and I noticed I got a lot of chat requests for cybering. I specifically said the picture wasn't me in my profile.

So I swapped it for a more demure Edwardian portrait photograph. I have never posted any pics of myself as I rather keep my identity to myself. I just added pictures which I found interesting. Two photos are of my favourite musician and my current avatar is a scene from a movie.

But yes I do find it amusing when people say the avatar is them when clearly it isn't.

I think it is kinda quaint that some people still think that they can fool all of the Lushies all of the time. Let them live their fantasisies - just don't expect me to 'friend' any of them. We cartoon characters like to keep it real Liar

I had gotten a request from someone i looked at the pictures, and i remember seeing the pictures before when I was doing a paper about Celebrity Privacy, turns out I was right, they were pictures of Grady Sizemore that had gotten leaked online.

I thought I was the only one... I've noticed it on other sites as well. The worst are totally obvious ones, like someone using Britney Spears when she was in her prime saying "This is me just chilling" No it's Britney in a Pepsi ad. Or "This is me out shopping" Pretty sure it's a paparazzi pic of Tara Reid. At least if you're gonna use a fake pic, don't use 1 of someone so famous people know you're lying... and use pix of the same person... Then again, shouldn't be doing it in the first place!

Going to be fakes no matter where you go.. people who aren't happy with themselves use other people's pics to lure in others they would otherwise never get attention from.

I can't work out how to use that website to look on the web for the pics :( I cleared a load off my friends list today for that very reason.

I sometimes notice the fake pictures right away, sometimes it takes a while for me to figure it out. I am pretty sure 2/3 of my friends are fakes. I really don't care as long as the faker isn't spamming me or something. It takes too much time to vet everyone who sends me a friend request. A couple of fakes I have as friends came up with the most interesting bullshit stories I felt like I was watching porn soaps... I figured that has a value all its own.

I'll admit, two of my photos aren't me. And one is questionable.
