You nailed it, right there, 1000%. This is the world we live in. The internet changed everything for photography, and honestly I don't think most of it is good at all. Can't have our cake and eat it too. Yes, we did gain speed of access, convenience, exposure (in a good way, as photographers), but in return we received loss of privacy at every level, paranoia by those being photographed, extreme competition, loss of real world skills, and being bombarded by loads of junk that a mere 15 year ago would have indeed been relegated to a shoe box. There is sensory overload at every level and many are just getting fed up and lash out. Not surprising at all.
