He is uploading to Alamy. I like Alamy, but it is not traditional stock agency and he is not macro stock shooter. Anybody can upload to Alamy, that is ok, they have their own business model. But, try to get accepted by Getty, Corbies, Veer, UpperCut images etc. Then you could call yourself traditional or macro stock photographer.

Dear Mr. Hippy,
I have a solution for you: if you don't like microstock, don't submit to microstock. We like it, sorry.  :P

...until there's people like this around it will be more and more harder to pay not just your bills
but even a coffee or a beer with photography...

A few sales a year for $300 each, or 1000 sales a year for $1 each... what's the difference?

I don't care who buys my images or where they put them. At the end of the day, it's the same money.

It was a funny headline however. Something you might expect to see in The Onion.

when I get very lonely I start picking up a fight on forums too! I'm with you, you are not alone, except if I do so everybody knows who I am and can easily check out my portfolio.

According to the time you spend on this forum, that certainly must be 10-layer 32-bit TIFFs on a 10-baud phone modem  ;D. Let me think, your "macro site" is Flickr, and you are called "Ansel Adams" by the other inmates of "Forest Peace", a home for retired photographers with moderately advanced Alzheimer. "Napoleon Bonaparte" is peering over your shoulder as you painfully type your unstructured paragraphs on your brand new Commodore 64, just grumbling now and then when you break another wind under your white charity gown.  ::) :P

Keep posting by all means. It's fun, now and then.

My thoughts exactly... I was wondering if this person is "Miz"erably reincarnated. (RIP Miz)

No, he just hasn't got the Miz's naughty sense of humour.

Seeing as he has other alias's on this board, he won't be gone, just changing hats.
