Still fake cartoonet contest & a shame on the editors

The following regulation is from http://www.cartooncenter.net/new_contests.htm edited by Seyran Caferli in Azerbaijan. Still this cartoonet contest is a fake one since there is no responsible person, not a sponsor, nor an establishment behind it. So it aims at cheating honest cartoonists out of their original ideas & this is unacceptable esp. for an editor who has been acting as a jury member in some international cartoon competitions(!?).
Mr Angel Boligan has unveiled another fake cartoonet competition where he himself had been mentioned as the jury member without his knowledge and consent: http://caricaturque.blogspot.com/2010/07/boligan-protests-false-cartoonet.html .
Although it is a known fact that there is a kind of fight against cartoon art of great impetus, some editors of cartoon websites never hesitate to announce whatever info(!?) arrives in their mailboxes. Today (August 9) I see that Tabrizcartoons are also announcing this false cartoonet contest and without any source (!?): http://www.tabrizcartoons.com/en/detail.asp?ID=1666 .
Hope they all will reconsider this piece of news and delete it with a protest against the pirates as the world-famous cartoonist Mr Angel Boligan did honestly; otherwise people would wonder if they are themselves involved in that non-ethical exploitation!
