Gee, I wonder why Yuri  don't bother to come around anymore?
He only came here when he had something to boast about, or when he wanted help. In the latter cases, he didn't feed back. He's not a great loss.

Besides, when people openly boast about how they're going to make things better, they should offer an explanation about why their project management didn't work, or expect a lot of flak.
Not that there is any reason to debate what Yuri said years ago but he was talking about the user experience improving.  I think it has, the site is a lot less buggy now than it was back then.  I also looked back through some of his old posts I'd much rather have someone like him posting here occasionally than the people who were attacking him. 
You also edited my quote which leaves out the most important point, many people who had expertise here were forced out.  Anyone remember Lisa, it wasn't just those two either.

I don`t care about istock. Hope they die soon.

Methinks they are dying even as we speak.

I was with IS for several years but pulled my port for good in 2011. Never regretted it one bit.

If you mean Lisafx, no one forced her out, she left of her own free will, because she got tired of the bullies here. Everybody here has a choice to stay or leave. And don't forget the ignore button. I dont disagree with what you are saying, i am just questioning your use of the word forced.

That thread was particularly about earnings, and although he "didn't directly answer the question", there is no direct indication that he was talking about UX, other than as a means to the end of increasing earnings.

Possibly, but there's a lot more spam now, even added directly via iStock's system, and acceptance standards have lowered considerably, meaning potential buyers often have to wade through a lot of stuff they'd rather not see.

I did edit it out because I was talking only about Yuri.
Lisa was, IMO, a huge loss to the forum here. I'm not sure how active she currently is. She hasn't uploaded to iS for over two years, and seems not to be currently contributing to SS or DT. (Of course, she may have personal issues which are taking her time/energy rather than positively deciding not to upload.)

I don't like some of the bullies here but rightly or wrongly, I'm sure many people saw Yuri going exclusive as a betrayal.  It should of been totally predictable that he would be met with hostility here when he went exclusive.  Then he made some posts that stirred things up even more and expected to be treated with respect.  I thought he knew a bit about psychology, so that looked deliberate to me but if he was genuine, then I can't believe how naive he was.

It would be nice if this was a civilised forum and we all treated each other with respect but for that to happen, Leaf would have to be kicking people 24/7.  It's a lot easier if we all grow a thicker skin or use the ignore button.

I agree with this.  It seemed bizarre to me but a lot of people took his business decision very personally.

Dear all!
Freelancers Union needs very much some stories about How new Getty policy affect us!
US-journalists are ready to help, but they need real emotional source from us.

More activity - more pr-value to come!

Not just here in the forum. She told me personally that she got vulgar PMs, email attacks and comments on her personal sales website. It was about DPC and FT mostly. Hope she's fine, I don't write her.

What is it now? One more day and iStock takes the lead in the race to the bottom. Or where they already winning? Waiting to see my first sub or partner sale after the crash.
