I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, some system options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm sure you're thrilled by your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

Ebola Ravages West Africa:
For 103 days, Daniel Berehulak, a freelance photographer for The New York Times, donned a face mask, rubber boots and three pairs of gloves to photograph the deadly trail of the Ebola virus as it swept through West Africa in 2014. "Burial teams couldn't pick up bodies fast enough," said Berehulak. At an overflowing treatment facility in Monrovia, Liberia, he found gravely ill James Dorbor, 8, and his frantic father amid a chaotic scene of people sprawled in the dirt, desperate for treatment.
James convulsed and went limp before the clinic doors opened, barely clinging to life. As two health care workers carried James inside, holding him "like he was a bag of garbage" to avoid contact with the virus, Berehulak shot his photograph.
Moments later, James died -- another victim of the relentless outbreak that killed more than 10,000. "People have commented on how callous the health care workers look," said Berehulak. "That's the nature of the virus, not their behavior. It's a virus that preys on our humanity, that preys on our caring for loved ones."

Protests in Ferguson
Furious protests erupted in the streets of Ferguso, Mo., after unarmed black teenager Michael Brown was shot to death by a white police officer on Aug. 9, 2014. Police in riot gear used tear gas and rubber bullets to break up the demonstrators, but still the protesters marched in anger and despair. On the fourth night of protests, St. Louis Post-Dispatch photographer Robert Cohen watched as police again fired tear gas into the crowd.
Suddenly, a young man wearing an American flag shirt grabbed a flaming tear gas canister and hurled it back toward police. Cohen shot the image and posted it on Twitter, where it instantly went viral. Published in newspapers around the world and copied on T-shirts, murals and tattoos, the image became a symbol of the protests. "I think protesters relate to that act of defiance, that act of fighting back," Cohen said.
One of 11 members of the Post-Dispatch photo staff who shared the Pulitzer Price for their Ferguson coverage, Cohen said, "I don't celebrate it, because it began with an 18-year-old dead in the street."
