You have a varied and colorful portfolio.  Must do well.

Is there any reason why you are trying to bait people into clicking on your affiliate link?  Seems a little unethical to me.  In fact, I seem to remember someone getting kicked off of another discussion group for doing the same thing.  It's especially suspicious when you post it twice on the same forum.

Not accusing or judging, just wondering.  ;D


Edited....make that three times in the same forum  ::)

FYI: This poster is a spammer.  The Yahoo microstock group (called micropayment) has had a few issues with him in the past.

He is just trying to use the link provided to get referrals.  He doesn't really care what you think of his images.

If you want to check out his images, then use this link instead:

http://www.fotolia.com/p/169859

It removes the referral link from the end of the URL.

Does he get anything from us just seeing his portfolio from his affiliate link?

When you click on his link, a cookie gets deposited on your computer.  If you aren't a Fotolia user, and you subsequently register, then you get assigned to his referral program because that cookie is on your computer.

It's no different than the very concept of sending spam through e-mail.  It's a bit deceptive to a person trying to give an objective opinion on a portfolio (and a bit sneaky if you ask me).

If that's what he's doing then I think it's more than sneaky. It's downright offensive.

One of the great things about this forum is the way in which people freely share their knowledge and advice, even though (technically) we are all in competition with each other. There is a spirit of openness and sharing.

And it's revealing that he's made no reply to the allegations.

Except for many of the guests (aka non-members) that read these messages.

I just searched his username on google and found a bunch of his spamming. So I send in a query to Fotolia with all the links and hopefully he will be banned.  ;)
