And as for stock owners... There are those that think of the future and do not try to milk the cow beyond its yield. They might actually be helpfull in focusing resources to make  profit grow.

Oh grow up!  are you smoking dope or something? I myself inherited shares in some major Corps and banks a few years back. Do you really think I or any other shareholder worry about the future of the companies? we want it NOW, while we are still alive, not tomorrow when dead. Thats the stocks and shares unwritten law.

Some ppl here really live in a promissed land or a fools horizon. ::)

Oh dear __ we have the Sage of Sweden back to advise us! Roll over Warren Buffett.

Last time I checked the vast, vast majority of shares are actually owned by pension funds and institutional investors. They are very much LT investors.

Sigh! the usual glib of the microstocker. Get a few more years in the photography business and we can talk. I didnt say shares in SS. Wouldnt buy or get any. I said shares in Corps and banks and some 8 years back.

What have you got?  a BME at SS? ::)

I couldn't care less about istockphoto..

despite making 1/6 of what I used to make on istock with less files, my micro income went up so they can go to hell with their commissions..

Fully agree.

Yes ofcourse he is right. Thats why ppl are selling like crazy. dow jones, london stock x-change, etc, etc, etc. but he is right and thats why the commodity x-change have sold more then in the last 50 years.

Shareholders comes in two categories. The small ones which will always by the skin of their teeth hang on to it, or the ones with a port that either gambles or let a broker gamble with them. Guess which one will die first?

Anyway what am I doing here? trying to chat with what? bunch of total morons?  end of conversation ::)

And f**k the 18/week upload limit. It will take 2.5 years to upload my port on IS ( and that without producing any new images).

The Alexa rank of iStock has dropped, from 220+ in 2010, now it's 430+.

While the Alexa rank of Shutter has increased to 220+.

Dont knock IS!  you should all be happy they accept any of your files. Exclusivity is what counts and the ones that havent got the balls for it should be only too happy they are prepared to sell any of your stuff. I am and they are selling very well right now.

OTOH. there is a market stall in the Casbah that sell pics off the peg ( dry ones that is).  try that one. OH its offline btw.

Really? That's news to me. Can't find any announcement about that and my upload limit (non exclusive) still says 18 per week. Anyone else know anything about this or have a link?  Regards, David.

Some of us prefer to think with their brain. Some of us do their thinking with their balls, obviously.

I got an email with that recently too. It was a "we miss you" email. It was geared towards vectors though. It looks like it is right. Mine says 50.
