    Yeah, saw this recently, shocking but they're sowing the seeds of their own destruction. Any worthwhile photographers are going to pull their images, reinforcing its reputation as a bottom feeder for crappy cellphone pics

    Never had an account with them so this affects me in no way, but it's just a really dumb shortsighted move, probably made by execs looking for a sweet kiss goodbye bonus

    Instagram and the like are shit buckets, I hate the photography they promote and everything about them. Now one would have to be really dumb to continue using them after this particular claim.

    That's the last straw after having enough trouble with Facebook sending all kinds of messages to other people on my behalf. I just deleted my account! :mad:
