Carlo and all,
As Matt mentioned, "picture grabbing" is a fact of life on the internet. It is more of an issue with wikis because everyone is posting, and monitoring is difficult, but not impossible. In fact, one of the strengths of the wiki is that everyone is also a monitor, and everything is easily traceable, as this instance shows.
Please, correct the credits for your pics and give yourself credit if you will allow their usage. If not, alert me, and I will delete them. I don't think you have permission to delete pics. The PACSOA pics I will delete, since we do not have permission, and should never have been allowed. The wiki policy states copyright material is unallowable. It is obvious that this should have already be understood.
Thanks for your appreciation of the potential for the wiki, and for your alert as to the pic in question. I also appreciate the fact that you are obviously checking out the wiki enough to notice these things.
If you will notice, all of the recent pics have a watermark added, just for this reason. Also, a few other pics were already caught and unallowed for this same reason. I wish I could have caught these. If you allow us to keep your pics up, and you wish watermarks added to yours, please let me know.
