What Yaymicro API partner does this site use?  I want to know what one to opt out of.  I could opt out of all of them but then I might as well dump Yaymicro.  None of these sites seem to sell much, so I don't think we need to get too concerned.  Never understood why new sites haven't noticed that almost all the buyers use sites that charge them more than all the failed sites that tried to undercut them.

The thing that's really getting to bug me is the imbalance. These sites get rich and the contributors get very little. Even if this person is working solo they may not get rich but could probably make a very good living with very little sales volume. So the pattern continues of site owner does well and contributors don't. And it's just another site that sets the expectation for buyers of premium for cheap. Why bother supporting stuff like this? And all of these backdoor partnering API deals.

I keep saying it and I'll say it again. By supporting these sites we are leaving money on the table. I just sold a small business website usage RM license through my site for $150. He initially said too much money, he could go to the micro sites and get something for way less, and asked for a huge discount. I negotiated a little but he still bought the image.

Are we our own worst enemy?

A quick update in the interest of fairness.
I have received a very prompt reply  email from Yaymicro who have agreed to disable access to my images on the Cstockphoto site and volunteered to opt my images out of all new partner sites.

Another update.
All but ten of my images have gone from cstockphotos.
No idea why the rest haven't gone but I will keep emailing them until they have.

Even so, why would you want to be connected to a clearly shady, non-selling site like YayMicro?

Besides, that site looks absolutely horrendous. 404 pages (blog), no decent interface, horrible logo, no information. Avoid.
