You are missing the point.

I think that to be fair about influencing the final judging we would want to
have our photos exclusive to FOM2. If I take a photo that is on my website
then put it on FOM2, anybody visiting both sites is obviously going to make
the connection to me, or anybody else doing the same thing. I know that I
have dozens of photos that are worthy of being on my site, but which are
not. So why not play by the rules and make it exclusive to the FOM2?
