+3  Wonder what happened as well  ???

Did admin delete my account?  Was i hacked? Was the site hacked?  Did it happen to anyone else?  I've been looking in over the weekend but I've been hesitant to re-register in case I was deleted on purpose.   

I had a real easy password to crack so maybe someone got access to my account but who knows.  Maybe I clicked something I shouldn't have?  The last time I logged in, I went into my profile to check my last posts and then everything froze so I had to reboot.  I popped in briefly a few times (without being signed on) later and didn't even notice I was gone till I saw Sean's post.  Weird. 

Glad you're back!

Last but not least, Pinterest is just another billboard for us, but only if you make sure your images look like one in the first place.
How can it possibly be a 'billboard for us' if pages with our images that have been licensed by third parties are pinned with no way (other than, maybe GIS) for someone to find us, even if they wanted to?

It's called "collateral" damage. If you think there's too much collateral damage, then pull your stock portfolio from the web and leave the stock photo business. Pretty simple.

Thanks Cathy.

I still want to know what happened.
