Facebook?

 I don't know how many of you do the whole facebook thing but there is a HORRIBLY rampant art theft scene on there. I try to always remind posters to credit or I post a credit of my own in the comments wherever I can. Facebook furs just have absolutely no concept of the idea of art theft. They post hundreds of images to their profiles, use them as profile images, tag themselves and their friends, etc. I don't see very many of them credit the original artists either.

I stumbled upon a reposting of my own art, again tagged as people who are not in the picture and not credited.

I'm debating whether I want to request credit or to just report it for removal.

If I get credit, that's possible traffic later.
if I report it, the image goes away and nobody sees it...

This particular person I am not a friend of so I cannot simply comment a credit like I normally do. Friend request pending but I'm debating what to do in the mean time.

What would you do in my shoes?
