Guys, just want to let you know that Chad Bridwell - content@onepixel.com contacted me via email to sign up for OnePixel. Chad is the one who kicked me out of Fotolia for protesting against the Dollar Photo Club. He must be one desperate donkey to contact me to join his new agency.

EDIT: They are apparently mining Facebook pages.

So yes, he is one desperate donkey asking me to join his crappy agency. Telling me to let bygones be bygones.  ;D

...Chad ... must be one desperate donkey to contact me to join his new agency.

That's either amazingly careless or truly desperate.

He hasn't yet hit the bottom of the barrel though, as he hasn't contacted me (he first threatened closing my FT account back in 2008 and blocked me from returning to FT when I left iStock exclusivity and when I asked again following the Adobe acquisition)!!  I almost feel left out :)

I sincerely hope that using unethical tactics helps to sink a business that was already terrible idea on its own merits - one way or another, that business needs to fade quickly and quietly away.

Thanks for posting about this.

Thanks Jo, I think he is probably incredibly stupid for contacting me, not realising that he kicked me out of Fotolia.

@Stefan, thanks for the support. It seems that it is in Chads nature to be without any respect for photographers. I sincerely hope Karma is at work here and that Chad and his agency get taken down as quick as they appeared.

Received a couple of emails from him. Just ignored them.

Adobe/FT will be extremely unhappy if he's taken data from them to set up in competition with them. And, as you say, it breaks quite a few data protection laws along the way. Unfortunately, the email address he used for me is my main one so he could have picked this up from a number of places.

OneShamelessPixel.com would be appropriate name for this pathetic agency.

At least with him gone I can think about joining Adobestock (though the last time I checked they were still only using Paypal for contributors).

I got an invitation email from him.

I got two
After the second I sent them to the hеll

They answered: "we are sorry if the invitation email was not of your like.
We will not contact you in the future."

I don't believe that they are sorry for me
I am happy that they will not contact me in the future

Not sure if Skrill or Payoneer would work for you, but I would absolutely recommend joining Adobestock.

I was able (when I asked for and received Scott Braut's help) to get my account reactivated at the end of 2016. If you don't want to reactivate an old FT account, you can probably just do things yourself as a "new" contributor.

For the last few months, AS has been outperforming SS, so if you can work out the payment issues, you'd see a solid return on your work to get your portfolio back up there (I'd expect; you know your work sells and I can't see any reason why it wouldn't do just as well at AS)

Thanks Jo Ann. Payoneer does work! Last time I checked they just referred to Fotolia's terms and conditions.  I guess I've got a lot of work ahead of me now.
