Every once in a while, I come across pics where the observer has used a piece of ID, usually driver’s license or student card, for scale or some other reason.

It doesn’t necessarily affect the quality of the observation, but its obviously a foolish thing to do nonetheless. Flagging said pics as a copyright violation is the only way to hide them, but its technically not correct. One argument, I suppose, is why should we care if the user doesn’t care about identity theft or risking fraud perpetrated in their name. Yet those crimes cost us all, so should we care anyway? And how can we deal with it, if at all? What do you think?
