It's that extra kick to the face from Getty to its contributors because it seems to be only slow on the contributors side.
I guess its due to all the extra code stuffed into its programming? I dont really code but i can see some of it being something like this.

- Don't show contributor "A" portfolio from 8am-12pm mondays and wed when searched...
- Lets just say buyer bought this item for $5 when it was really bought for $7 code every 10th sale...
- every 25 sales, one is refunded for twice the amount
- contributor "B" made some posts on our forum that made us look dumb. so his search placement goes down by 50 image slots
- contributor "B" keeps making sense on the forums and is pointing out our greed. extra 10% off 50% of all his downloads dont report

I can keep going on but at least i had some fun  ;D

Is this just conjecture, or do you have evidence that they are doing this?

I know it feels like this sometimes (today is a good example for me), but I think you're seeing conspiracies where there's only falling sales, less customers and more images. It makes for very chaotic sales patterns that can make you paranoid, but I don't think they're that malicious!

hmm, dare we agree? suspect many who would agree that something like this goes on (it's been mentioned a few times, and didn't as ex-mod confirm it?), but those who believe it's true wouldn't agree here or anywhere else.

No evidence, just me having some fun with some wild theories I have had.
