One of my roommates used to accuse me--perhaps with some justice--of "Ignatiusing," after Ignatius J. Reilly in A Confederacy of Dunces, who would go to movies and sit in the front row talking loudly and enthusiastically about how bad they were.

In that vein--if you really, sincerely think that a photograph is so unflattering as to be slanderous, you shouldn't post it on your website. Nor should you link to it.

[UPDATE: Particularly if the image shows up better on certain browsers than it does in the place you got it from, though the original source shows up fine. Actually I don't think that picture is so unflattering, at least not compared to the one seen here. Anyone who would publish or link to that is scum.]
