anyway, the whole point being is that where micro is headed is ugly, and it does not bode well for any of us if it keeps going this way.

Yes, most of us agree with the above statement.   Problem is we don't seem to agree on what to do about it, or even if we CAN do something about it.

yep, getting photographers to stand up united for a cause is very similar to herding cats.

i do my bit by not supporting SS primarily for their sub model and that to me is really the downfall of the whole industry sooner or later.

in fact when i first toyed with the idea of microstock 8 years ago, before i went exclusive i went with many other agencies with the exception of SS, again, subs were bad news in my books and the 0.25 they offered was a complete kick in the nuts, and sadly that is still the same rate on offer.

SS is the downfall of the whole industry? You really are blinded by your hate.
