Remove the photo guide!

Hey...I just found out there's a possibilty to use a photo guide from your computer and trace that photo..
I mean..this is an online drawing community right?
Coz, basically everyone can just trace over an image..there's nothing artistic about that.
If someone really wants to copy an existing picture (coz he/she likes it or w/e), i think, this person has to copy by looking at it.
Of course, not everyone uses this cheating tool, but I think, we should give everyone the same conditions - imagine two artists:
But is it fair? I mean, every child can trace. Is art determined by "who copies best" or imagination?
Are you artistic enough to abandon the photo guide and start drawing honestly?
(Ok, sorry for the rant, but it's just what I think about this topic. This post wasn't made to offend people who trace, but think about those questions)
