I just got tagged into a photo which then contained in the comments/description links to porn sites.

Just letting you know!

Sorry to hear about this, Robin.

If you haven't already, we'd encourage you to report the spammer so we can take appropriate action on the account.

Thanks!

At the bottom of your About/Profile page you may see a section entitled "Photos of InnAtElmwood". If you do not see this section, you are not tagged in any flickr photo.

I did but with respect, Flickr staff never reply or come back to the reporting user, thus it's a mystery as to whether any action was taken. I am not complaining I'm simply telling it like it is.

This post was just to warn others and I do appreciate your response.

Thanks

Robin :)
