When I got home and was going through my photos online, I thought, "Hey, that guy sort of looks a lot like Joey McStay of the missing McStay family."
What are your thoughts?
Yay or nay?
I think a lot of guys probably look like Joseph McStay.
But give me your thoughts as to possible or "no way."
I mean if you found this blog post because you follow this story.
And please. no snarky comments about my assertions of property rights in this matter. I obviously shared the photo here so that it could be used in any way possible to advance the search for the McStay family (if it is actually J.M. depicted).
Mass media (which are "for profit" entities) routinely pay photographers for the rights to photographs. So I have no reason to feel abashment for doing what every other intelligent human being does with regard to his or her intellectual property. There are numerous photos of J.M. in existence for use by the media in furthering the search for him and his family. This particular photo is not needed for that. But it might be of interest to media that follows this story because of the large interest in the disappearance. Any pointlessly negative comments attacking me on this sensible stance will not be posted but marked as spam and deleted. The only reason for leaving comments like that, anyway, would be a pettiness or nastiness. I appreciate 99% of comments I receive on this blog (and even many that disgree with me entirely on things). But there is that 1% of people (almost ALWAYS cowardly "Anonymous") who just leave sniping comments. That 1% gets vaporized and I go about enjoying my day. Thanks to the great readers who are adults and don't act like this! I appreciate your visits!
