Something less sinister: a certificate that was not correctly configured.
Editor's note: we welcome discussion about cartoons and their content, but users issuing threats and profanity will be removed.
I will talk about this issue with our developer. Personally, I am not a big fan of a watermark; to prevent people from using images they need to be really big and ugly which will make the website less appealing to our audience, (One solution could be to add a small(er) CM logo watermark; that would not prevent stealing, but at least it would be clear it's from CM.
The other protection that I know of is disabling the right-click save option, but adding a swap-image function when people go over it with their mouse (so they see a copyright notice if they go over the picture with the cursor. This might prevent some theft, but does not prevent people making a screenshot and cropping the cartoon.
I am sorry guys, but there really isn't much we can do in these cases. They take lo-res images from our site, and usually do not respond to our messages. If they don't take it from CM, they'll take it from other sites or social media.
