Re: It's actually not stealing. It's allowed under the Fair Use Convention.

Anything posted in the public domain is open to copy, for non profit, personal use.  Copy any of mine freely but don't let me catch you using it commercially without my explicit approval.  Or worse still claiming it to be your own.  It is proper to credit the photographer but for personal use, even to illustrate a grade school paper, who is being harmed?  I can't even see this as a moral issue.
