 Please accept our apologies. We did credit you, and when
looking at your chickenhead.com site we didn't imagine that
you'd be this uptight about permissions. After all, you must
realise that most of your banners are themselves collages of
other people's work for which, I would guess, you did not
receive clearance to use. For example, I doubt that you
obtained permission to use the photo of the Wendy's
hamburger that appears in your "yummy dolly" banner.
Something to think about, perhaps.

At any rate, our aim is not to irritate other artists, at
least not usually (haha). So I've removed the 3 banners
that I believe were yours. Let us know if there are other
images you notice on the Anti-ad site that you consider to
be your property, but as far as I can tell that's all of

best wishes,
