Seriously though, I too am known to be a bit facetious at time, but this is a serious issue facing photographers, and forums like this help us discuss and even put our thoughts into words for the world to hear.
It is, but let's have the discussion without any disrespect to anyone and not even towards Adobe. If you want to make your case to them it's best done respectfully and with an open mind.
Even something as simple as saying Adobe is insulting customer's intelligence is an insult to anyone who likes their new model... if I happen to like it then I must have limited intelligence. That may seem overly sensitive but it's not... if you want me to listen to and respect your opinions then shouldn't you do the same. If I and 500,000 other people are signed up and paying for CC then perhaps there is some value in it, unless we are all just stupid minions.
Some of you are furious about the pricing, the fact that you don't "own" the software (you never did anyway), the fact that it checks in once a month to confirm the license, etc. etc. and those are valid concerns. But let's say PS was only $5 per month... would all the other issues be acceptable or tolerable? If so, then this is just a pricing issue.
Someone said that 20,000 people have signed the petition... 20k is a big number but it's less than 5% of the people who have signed up (assuming Adobe is being honest about that number, which they probably are since it would be a disclosure item in the financial audit). Those 20,000 people are not wrong, they may genuinely not like the new model, but neither are the people who like the new model.
