I deactivated a third of my portfolio. it's small so it's only 15 files but I gave "gGoogle deal protest" as the reason for all of them. I'd do them all but I'm close to a payout and don't want to lose my $100 - I think I'll lose my photo plus slots but, though I don't have any photos in the google deal, I want to stand in solidarity with those of you who do. I'll close my account once I reach a payout. Viva la resistance!

105 so far here

101 for me. All the photos where my kids or friends kid's faces are shown. The note was about not wanting to upload photos fo children when there is no assurance they wont be misused.

Nice one Leaf.

I have taken 379 down so far, but I got a bit depressed by the whole thing so will stop for a bit.  More later though...

i deactivated my small port of around 200...i'll cash out when the PP has finished and close my account.  Easy for me, this is a hobby - I'm full of admiration for full timers doing the same thing...

Ok, so, in total, around 2000 deactivated for me. I left 900 photos with 0 download, some videos and some musics.

I notice that this has 13,000+ views and 15 people currently viewing it. I don't believe I've ever seen a thread get that sort of following before (except, I now notice, for all the others on the same topic).

Plus another 60 deactivated, for good measure.

I did 552 more than listed (got carried away).

It's easy to get carried away, right?   Good old Sean made it a breeze.  ;D
He wrote it, but is he using it himself. I remember him saying he wouldnt delete any images?

Deleted 72 more vectors so far today. Only about 100 left, will do some more before midnight. Kind of sad to see those go which I submitted back in 2005 when I first applied to iStockphoto. But what you gonna do?  :-\

12 from my tiny port (makes nearly 20% of it).  Not the most fun I've ever had but I wanted to show my support and protect some images I hope will have a future as sellable art one way or another.

Ok, I have deactivated about 458 images. ~30 left active. I have to admit after being with iStock since 2005 this is a very sad day indeed.

I deleted 195 more yesterday for a running total of 200, as I pledged earlier on the spreadsheet.  I'll keep removing more at leisure, whenever the mood strikes me.

I deactivated 10 more of my images, which brings my total protest deactivations up to 37.

I just killed off 85. Man it's a lot more tedious than I had anticipated. Still have several hundred to go. I don't think I'll get it all done today though.

Did 50 today.  Would've done more, but for some reason the script isn't working for me.  Will do more tomorrow.

OK - I'm confused where I've posted, and where I haven't, but I deactivated around 40 today, with around 35 of my better sellers deactivated last week.  I'm interested to see what this week will bring. Watching, waiting, trying to balance business sense with personal ethics.
