i don't get it.  why are we being asked to verify our email addresses now?  AND the link in sent to my email says it the 1st step on becoming a contributor  (I've been a contributor for several years)  THEN when i click the link it tells me that link has expired.  lol.  I'm not feeling safe and secure vincent.  

I think its related to "Tell us about you and win a $100 Amazon gift card" survey. Maybe i'm wrong, but just as I took this survey I was asked to verify my email address.

Well, it's not uncommon for hackers to be successful in hacking sites of big companies. A while ago Adobe was hacked and credit card information obtained, including my own. Hiring a botnet is not all that expensive. I trust Shutterstock manages to keep our data safe, and whenever there is a data breach, we will be informed.
