Hi all what is your take on this newest comment from IStockPhoto forum?

$4,215 bucks

That's the amount of money we have spent with iStock since July 2008. Here's a little look into the past:

In July 2008, my biggest gripe about iStock was that the search function did a horrible job of returning relevant results, mostly because of keywords spammers. iStock realized this and worked very hard to fix it. I can attest that by 2009 it was much better; much easier to get useful results.

In September 2009, my biggest gripe about iStock was that there were too many awesome photos. Sensory overload! Life was good.

In November 2010, I am so frustrated with the lolly-gagging and excuse-making regarding the current site "improvements" and changes, that I am honestly considering signing up for an account at another microstock site for THE. FIRST. TIME. EVER.

Fix the search! No more excuses! No one cares about empty statements like "We are getting really close." If you couldn't make the new site work *at least as good* as the old site, then you didn't have any business launching a new site. Waste of time, resources, and your money (which iStock seems to be in dire need of right now.)
