When I created my account on 500px, it was said that accounts with photos that held no artistic value would be deleted. Yet, everyday we see absolutely hideous and mediocre photos on the popular's first pages. Such feat's thanks to forcing their popularity with equally mediocre photographers and dragging down the drain better photos through the "dislike" option.
I've become disgusted with such blind futile egos, and with the lack of respect fueled by frustrated and envious people. I might share a photo every now and then on this site, but I'm not playing this game anymore.
