I don't block people for being clueless.  I do, however, block people who are ornery in their cluelessness, or who make it clear to me that they're not interested in picking up the clues and hints and explanations I give them.

Hello Avancna,
I'm wondering if I can ask you for permission to use an image of yours - and of course we would include a credit to you for the image. I'm interested in using your image on Cathaymyrus diadexus (I tried to include a link to that image, but the comment system won't let me do that - thinks it's spam).

I'm a science journalist, just finishing work on a story for Science News for Students on how things become fossilized - and the story includes a brief discussion on work to understand the early evolution of chordates and vertebrates - and we include a mention of Cathaymyrus. I would love to use your image in the story, if you are ok with that. Probably it would be easiest if we just chat by phone or email. I have tried to include my email in this comment, but the system doesn't let me do that (thinks it is spam!). So here's my suggestion - google Douglas Fox science writer, go to my website, and then you'll find my email address on the contacts page.

...I'm happy to answer any questions that you may have - hoping very much to hear from you today if that's possible.

Many thanks, Avancna - I look forward to speaking!
-Douglas Fox

After digging up and reviewing my references, I decided to redraw Cathaymyrus (both species), as I quickly, if belatedly came to the conclusion that my old picture was inaccurate (like, as inaccurate as drawing Power Girl while only using a picture of Super Girl and a written description as references).
I will send you a link to the updated version via a note, as the updated version is too big to send through email.

Would you like me to crop the image out, or would it be possible to wait a few days for me to redraw it?
