stock photographers acting like fbi agents, 'there is more to the story here', dissecting every word, never seen a more distrusting bunch of people than on photography forums, and ganging up on people as well, why is it that stock photographers have such crappy personalities..
,
pfft

It's usually because when somebody says something along the lines of 'my account has been closed for no reason', aside from a few very rare exceptions.... there is always, usually without fail, almost every single time... a reason. A reason which only becomes apparent later in the thread when information is provided that wasn't initially. So while it would be nice to give everyone the benefit of the doubt and go with the premise that there actually is 'no reason' it usually saves a bit of time to question what they're saying.

A random example for you...

"My account was closed for no reason"

100 questions and replies later...

"Ok, so just to clarify, based on what you've told us... your account was actually closed because you have eight different accounts, have been buying your own content, have moved countries 20 times in the last year, you got a bunch of DMCA requests on your content, you now live in North Korea, you have 50 other people with SS accounts using your laptop to log in, you have an approval rating of less than 0.1%, your content is made up of blurred stills from ramdon videos that you found off the internet, and you specifically asked for your account to be closed?" 

"Yeah, that's right"

Exactly!  :)

but that isnt the case here though, the account was closed due to an error, yet here you are thinking something MUST be wrong with the OPs story, the mistrust is obvious. it has to be the photographers fault, cant be the agency

I never think something MUST be up with the OP's story... I just know from experience that, more often than not, something is usually up with the OP's story.

I read your replies in some differnt threads and you always seem to support agencies.. And always saying others that they (stock agencies) have the right to close anyone's account what so ever be the case.. Not sure but feel like you are someone from the other site.. Someone working for agency? And also selling the contents too?

I have told everything here. If you guys think my account was closed because I once deactivated my account then I will again say it was a year back and after that I again started uploading contents and my account was alive. And closing that account by an agency because of some error (what they themselves told), then it was agency's fault and it creates distrust in contributors.
And I don't have 20 accounts as I said I had one nonexcluaive (which was closed) and one exclusive account which is allowed in p5.
If there was some error from my side then p5 could have warned me earlier and I was not messaging here.
I have still not received a constructive reply here (except 1 or 2) other than mostly ppl suspecting my intention. Anyways it doesn't matter. You can submit your work to the sites you want. I also loved p5 but recent changes and what happened to my account doesn't seem fair to me. May be you guys would realise if same thing  happens to your own account. I will better stick to the one agency getty which despite giving low percentage is only seems to be genuine to me in these 10 years of my stock photography journey and everything else including ss and p5 has been following to the same route to downwards for contributors which I imagined years ago.

I see, you know the account was closed due to an error, because the OP told you so? Yet the whole story keeps changing as we read, from automatically deleted, to a small twist that he asked for it to be deleted? And asking questions doesn't mean I don't believe his story, it's because the details are lacking and I'd like to know the facts of how this happened.

It isn't distrust or ganging up to ask for a complete version of some claim, including the details and facts.

Come on, how many of the "my account was closed on... for no reason" messages have you read here, where a simple examination by forum members turns up most of the time, a real reason. Also most of the time, except when people get re-instated because it was an error, the OP never comes back. They just fling out some BS about how they are the victim of injustice and then vanish.

Asking for facts and the truth is a reasonable request when someone comes in making claims and accusations?

Saying that all agencies have the right to shut down accounts for any reason, isn't supporting agencies... it's supporting the truth, because they do have that right. Same with changing the commission rates... which I've also stated on previous occasions and may have contributed to your perception of me.

I mean surely the opposite is considerably worse? I tell everyone what the agencies are doing is highly illegal and it would be an open and shut case in court with a good payday... everyone spends a small fortune pursuing said legal action... and everyone loses?

I guess we could have a 'positive answers only' section of the forum, where everyone tells everyone what they want to hear... where everyone is supportive no matter how wrong the poster may be? Could work.

I'm positive you are right. I was abducted by aliens, from the secret underground society, hiding within the Earth, in a parallel universe, who told me through mental telepathy, It Could Work!

...  it's possible there is more to this than meets the eye  ....

which is why ellipses should be used when quoting to indicate there was a longer original quote (as done above)

there's also the constant " i didnt get any sales today from X so something must be wrong!"

but it's not limited to photogs - it's a common feature across social media
