I doubt this is just me but I had a great feeling for this company when they began accepting stills and despite the fact that sales are slow there by comparison to any other place I deal with, I've kept faith since the extra time to upload is not a big deal and the people seem very nice.  Plus it takes time for any company to grow.

However, now I find that the bar they've set for acceptances is changed and short-sighted.  I've had recent rejections which I've pointed out to them sell elsewhere, in one case 20+ times this summer and what I get is nonsense list of what's wrong and unwillingness to deal with the relationship between a company and a SUPPLIER with grace and understanding.  But no such luck.  Rejections aren't the issue, we all get them and that's fine.   But suggesting that they protest too much (to steal a line from Shakespeare) is not enough to get them to back down and take a look at what really matters, originality and near excellence.  (I'm NOT trying to be snide with that remark) It's simply sad and too bad for them and frankly, me too.  As I said, I like(d) the company until now. I've decided to refrain from submitting further stills to them.

Any thoughts?
