I have never bought a photo from a website (I have plenty of my own to hang on the walls!), but whenever I browse photo sites that are heavily watermarked I find I quickly move on. Its too hard to see past the distracting text and I get no emotional attachment to the image because my eyes are drawn to the text, not the image. Just my 2 cents worth...

And your view is of a "taker" who wants to view everything without obstruction without compression.  And is exactly making my point.  Have you own photo gear to take your own pictures and doesn't have a regard for protecting images from those who might try and use it for some use - whether paid or non-paid it would still be unauthorized use of an image without permission/license.   Many people on DPR are here only to talk gear and see photos from the hobbyist side of things and not from the artist/pro side of things.
