The amount of attacks I got from other contributors for posting it on Shutterstock was insane.  Those people are turning other cheek to Shutterstock.  Something I wouldn't do.  After what Jon did to us last year reducing our pays instantly, honestly assessing his photos as "suck" was nothing.  He's not an active contributor not dedicated to the art of creating stock photos/videos to pay some bills anymore.  Do any of those people think he's crying because I called his photos "suck"?  Come on man.

You gave them so many other reasons to do it, but they chose the funniest: berating Oringer, the contributor! Lol!
I can definitely imagine some smiles in the admin community.  :D
The joke is on you, I'm afraid.  ;)

Personally I think it's their new CEO Stan P who's the big ass wipe in this company. I think he's shot SS in the foot with his new subscription business strategy. The place is a sheet hole now not just for contributors it seems, but customers too.

I agree, but Oringer made him the CEO, I think.  So, it's both of them who decided to hurt us contributors in the midst of pandemic to instantly pump up their stock price.

Oringer's Twitter comments last June when the new paycut was announced was entirely supportive of the move.  He said so multiple times. At one point he had a pretty good rant against the contributors complaining.

Yup.  He basically tweeted telling contributors to GTFO if you don't like Shutterstock's new move last tyear.

Yup, if you've been following J on twitter you will see that he's gradually become worse and worse with regards to the "little people" over the last couple of years.

P.S. His latest tweet? "1.6 million contributors from around the world - Shutterstock is the OG creator economy." he could just be trolling at this point!

As a side note, it may not be entirely his fault. One of the more robust findings in psychology is that when people get too much money they act more like what we would colloquially call f***ing a**holes. Heres a couple of links but the phenomenon has been demonstrated in loads of studies in many different ways.

You're correct, his photos do suck. If you said that about another contributor such as me you'd never get a warning. SS have treated contributors really badly in the last year so the snowflakes who run it should take at least some flak especially the leaders /CEO, after all, they are paid more than enough and they should be answerable to not just shareholders but contributors as well. SS work for contributors NOT the other way round.

The problem for contributors that agree with you are banned from the SS forum. I was banned from the forum over 6 months ago and was a new contributor then but knew it would take longer to reach the $35 payment before I could leave SS.

Yes, The new CEO's the real culprit for the new regime at SS. J. O. had left by then although J.O. could veto any future changes at SS, he chose not to and instead insulted contributors by saying on Twitter last year 'If you don't like it, take your work and go. It's diabolical What's wrong with the guy?

These studies are calling us lower class now? what an insult from these so-called experts. but it seems to mean that these CEOs are basically emotionless cyborgs or robots, no wonder J Benzos' wife divorced him.

Just been looking at the Forum on Shutterstock, it's full of, if's and maybe's, all trying to figure out why some have been paid a few cents for a On Demand images and the difference between subscription prices.

There is a lot of anger over there, with some of them sending emails to SS, getting rubbish replies, if they reply at all, etc. . .

Basically it just comes down to robbery by Jon Oringer and his side kick Stan Pavlovsky, this is what happens when you have a unregulated Capitalist market; down the ages most business owners have exploited there work force, first offering a decent remuneration and then as the years go on, once they have cornered the market, offering slave wages.

This is apart from the striking, unethical and immoral position that this puts Oringer in, a man of no conscience, which many business leaders and politicians seem to sympathies with.

To compete against the likes of China and other totalitarian regimes, Capitalism would be advised to move on from this model of business.

We basically need a new enlightenment.

I forgot, he was banned for life on SS forums, long ago. And after that, Leaf banned him here... six (or more) of his accounts, "forever", years ago. We'll be saying farewell, until the next time we meet when Tyler notices. Until then I'm not saying anything.

I agree with you. That J. Oringer used to be a nice guy when he was a forum admin. I think money changes many people for the worst. These big American corporations should be held to account by someone because the US federal government just lets 'em get away with stuff even when it's wrong. they're corrupt to the core. It would never be allowed in my country or the EU.

Msg to J.O:
J Oringer if we contributors leave, try taking the photos yourself as well as we can but judging by your port. you can't. I'm sticking up for blvdone as it seems many of you have spoke against him just for stating an opinion
