The model is also on Purestorm. Published in Loaded, so there is quality for you.




If she is on here, then maybe it would have been better not to have referred to her, but on her profile, her Loaded publication seems to have come from her first few shots - does that really imply an established published model or someone who sent in some freebie images?

Only modelling on portfolio sites for 4 months? You think this was a safe bet then?

you are putting extra detail to the not recommended reference


IMO one should be allowed to give "extra detail" in negative reference.

But the rules don't allow that and the usual result of someone trying to put extra detail in is the reference gets removed and the reference poster gets warned or punished.

Not sure what the point is.

You also expose the site to potential defamation and libel lawsuits and I know what their reaction will be to you if you choose to put them at risk of that happening

You can't write anything when giving a negative reference.

But that is what I mean by putting further detail on a forum thread that is easily traceable back to the model. It is immediately adding the detail to the reference by association. If what was written in the forum post was pasted in a reference, it could be construed as potentially libelous as there is no proof provided but the other party may feel they have been damaged.

The other mistake people make is to leave a positive reference but write a negative comment, which is technically possible but likely to land you in a heap of trouble.

I think as it is now clear the model is on this site, it would be best not to drag this out any further. It goes to say it should probably never been brought up in the first place in a way that it was easy to trace the person. If other people [assumably friends / photographers of the model] are emailing the poster, someone will have spotted this thread and as I said, it could result in the reference being removed

Maybe I'm thick (ok, no maybe about it), but how have people worked out who the model in question is?

On the "other" site, look at the portfolio of the photographer, look at their activity - it says ...... added a reference for .......... Jump to models profile and hey presto.

Purestorm has died in the past half a year :\, Since joining this site a good 4 or 5 years ago, its slowly gotten very quiet. I use to get all of my bookings from here, I got a Purpleport account to try it, I found it didn't suit me at all and I got bombarded with requests for TF even though I don't do TF. So I left it. But on here its just quiet, has everyone jumped ship?
