It was surprising and sad to see your portfolio deleted from Was it because of the religious content?

Yes, I said one Hare Krishna too many :-)....

I am not happy about what happened, but lately it was quite difficult for me there anyway. New Director of community, Josh Root, got over nervous about mentioning of Hare Krishna in my posts... he thought it is some kind secret invasion on site....

I was a subscriber to for the last 5 years, contributing photos, critique and money.
It is only in the past few months with a new management I started to get harassed for my religious believes, started by Mary Ball, a Christian lady & one of PN site moderators.

Josh Root, director of community on had closed my account - Hare Krishna is not allowed(!)
His reasons to ban me have nothing to do with photography issues, neither did I abuse the site or the members. It is simply based on his personal religious prejudges.

He kept all 2602 of my Krishna Conscious photos for the site's use (for the numbers of clicks, to impress advertisers), but he refusing to refund my money payed for 2 years of membership in advance.

He is telling me that I am not "welcome" to any more, but he keeps the results of my previous participation, thus is still benefits on "unwelcome" me, denying me my side of benefits in the form of participation - but they can't have enough courtesy to refund my money(!)

I will announce my new portfolio when it's ready.

Hare Krishna.
