Way to jump on a sinking ship

On DPR's homepage, there's a story about how 500px has drawn a distinction between what it sees as photography and what it considers a photo manipulation.

But is the line between the two really as cut and dry as they make it out to be?

What do you think?

Way to jump on a sinking ship, since everything is moving to computational photography (even Leica!).

I could understand this move better if 500px divided the images up somehow, maybe by using special tags so people, who wanted to, could limit their views to more photographic-like (maybe a slider instead of a tag?)

Or maybe 500px is trying to grow value by being seen as "exclusive-ly real-life photos". Branding: "THE place to go to see *actual* REAL-LIFE photos!"
