It just goes to show how pointless the forums have become at iStock I learned this info here right now. Thanks OP.

I rarely come in here but because the whole subject is censored at iStock I just wanted to say I am sorry to hear of this news.  I wish Sean all the best and am sure his portfolio will be immensely successful.

I got banned for calling Lobo a bully.  And because the site had code problems my ban didn't work so, I posted loads more, which really infuriated him.  Then some weeks later I thought my ban was up as I had access to the forums again so, I started writing ordinary posts in Audio section and Lobo, insanely, banned me for a longer time period for writing in the forums based on me having access because iStock's lack of coding expertise enabled me to; istock is quite illogical.

Globalsounds got banned for sticking up for me and her ban lasted over a year.

$15,000 income in a year (in one year in the past 3) are the earnings you need to make to claim losses (or have assessts over $50k but I think that has gone up too). It has changed over the years to make it harder and harder to claim losses (I think it's the ebay seller situation that has changed this).

"You were the wind beneath my wings" .... BLEEEAAARRRRHHH

OMG, someone really said that?

Sadly they did __ and worse. Really it is too embarrassing and distressing to discuss any further. I'm quite literally sick of the nausea such posts generate when I view them.

Masochistic drama-queen.

Do you genuinely feel better for putting others down? Are you really that unsuccessful?

I most certainly am that 'unsuccessful'. It's something I have to deal with constantly whilst I'm working on my golf handicap. I do appreciate your concern though.

I'm just trying to give a sense of perspective regarding JJRD, et al. This isn't the Istock forum btw __ over here you are actually allowed to say what you think. Ok?

I have no concern for you - please see my earlier post on my thoughts about you as I'm all for saying what I think. But thanks for trying to tell me how fora work.

So, I imagine you vomiting your guts for a full week when Steve Jobs died an tens of thousands os posts about him were posted in public forums.

Being as Jobs was actually dead it was probably a little tricky to send him a PM. It is also beyond question that Jobs was a truly remarkable man, known throughout the world and all of us have benefited from how he 'changed the World', even if you never bought any of his products.

Not sure I fully understand your comparison with Jobs and a French-Canadian beardie who looked at digital images for a living.

Do you genuinely feel better for putting others down? Are you really that unsuccessful?

:D I scanned some of it when it first when up. I had enough of the cultish adoration after a couple pages. No way I could stomach 12 of them!

But you must, honestly. The amusement factor actually increases the further you get as the faithful try to outbid each other with ever more elaborate swooning and exultations of the fallen. You couldn't make this stuff up __ it's comedy gold.

Perhaps the irony of your attitude is lost on you. So, I'll explain it to you. You are deriding people for having what you perceive to be an an extreme reaction to an event and yet you reacte extremely to their action feeling the need to write as mockingly as you possibly can with the differentiial being that they are trying to express being nice and you are trying to expres being mean and you are very convincing.
