You can PM me if it's wrong for the forum.

I'm looking for the bookshelf guy, the shoes, the marijuana, and wasn't there one that was all clouds, identical? These are for an investor who says, Shutterstock has added far more new photos than Adobe. I was pointing out that if thousands of duplicates or spam images are what makes them growing faster, don't be fooled by artificial growth.
 
If it's allowed by Leaf, links to the most spammed portfolios, anywhere, but specifically SS.

I'm sure I know which one it is! and it proves beyond doubt that SS is just collecting, accepting for the sake of it and not giving a * about the content, similars not even identicals. One of the reasons they can brag and boost about the quantity of OUR assets!.

The place is really in a mess!

If only they also started reporting downloads per image to their investors. It would give people some idea of how much customers have to wade through to find an image to buy.

I think its there in the quarterly reports but they don't boast about it for some reason ;-).

This is one of the marijuana guys, but he seems to have branched out a bit:

This, however, is the original marijuana man: https://www.shutterstock.com/g/JeremyNathan
There's more than one? The world has gone completely crazy. No doubt he will be complaining to SS that someone has stolen his idea(s)

I'd love to know what return they get from those inflated portfolios.

Yes or any kind of explanation of how it makes any possible business sense.

I think they think download per number of pictures. I bet they make very little because they have 1 photo hundreds of times, how many get needed. That makes SS look dumb for accepting. Not as bad as others but 100 of most the same. https://www.shutterstock.com/g/NataliiaKrasnenko?searchterm=store%20shelf

Thanks all especially the PMs. I found a guy who does eyes, another who has yellow woods in Siberia, the hundreds of titanium gears, marijuana guy (a few of them, but never found the 3d bookshelf account. Not important for specifics, the point has been verified, there are many more totally spammed accounts, with hundreds if not thousands of similar or repeating images. More than I imagined. Oh yeah, clouds and the Moon, it's sad.

Strange, I'm still getting the same error message - in two browsers, one of which has all history/cache/cookies deleted after every use.
Ho-hum.

This is, what SS is accepting now.

https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/rain-forest-jungle-bird-1204931440?src=GomG4yeTKt6FO95KyezbsQ-1-67

I wouldn't keep that kind of blurred photo not even on my CPU.

 :-X. Still, as the species isn't named, few buyers will ever see it, so it's just padding.

CPU don't store things--- physical memory (System and Video) and disk drives store... 8)

SS have deleted whatever it was. It would be nice if they would just reject rubbish rather than waiting for old-timers to point it out before they delete it.

In case you haven't figured it out yet, I used CPU  as short for computer not central processing unit. I thought people will understand, what I meant. Mistake.

Ha, ha. When I saw 'POS' in the link, I'd forgotten it stands for 'Point of Sale' too! :)
