No bots following me, please. If you look like a bot and follow me, insta-block. If you're not a bot, don't look / act like one.

My interests are varied, so this photo-blog is, too, in terms of content. Some of it may interest you, some of it may not. Oh well! My stream here consists overwhelmingly of photographs I've taken, but it also has some scans from old books, and magazines, and the like, just for fun.

I don't join groups requiring me to comment on others' pics; nor do I join silly groups where all the members post graphics with thumbs-ups or sparkles and saying things like "GREATEST PHOTO EVER!" (Gimme a break!) And I think it's absurd that Flickr makes us show others' pics (favourites) on our own profile pages. Why? It's not like we can't click on people's favourites and see them there; why duplicate that on the profile page? That's ridiculous. (Like pretty much everything else Flickr has ever done without consulting its PAYING members BEFOREHAND. Typical...) Oh, and it's also absurd only a portion of one's public groups are visible, rather than all... Think, Flickr, think!

Rules for guests: say pretty much whatever you want here, BUT don't be deliberately rude or insulting, AND don't use the name of the Lord in vain, or be sacrilegious or blasphemous with regard to The Faith, or poke fun at the Lord or His mother, AND please avoid dropping F-bombs. OR ELSE.

Oh, and apologists for totalitarian regimes, or axe-grinding sectarians, or supporters of terrorist organizations: you're not welcome here; go away; you'll be deleted and blocked in a heartbeat if you come here to argue or complain. Ditto anyone who takes issue with my policy here. Or any other annoying argumentative axe-grinding one-note ideologues (as distinguished from cheerful, good-natured argumentative types, like myself and a number of my contacts). My house, my rules.

And one more thing: don't be boring and/or repetitive; the same joke, or kind of joke (about the same subject matter), over and over, will not be tolerated; your comments will be deleted. Be forewarned.

If I'm blocking you, don't bother protesting or putting on a sockpuppet and coming here to argue my decision; you'll be blocked again, and Flickr admins will be informed that you're harassing me. Just go away - and don't let the door hit your behind on the way out.

Thanks!

Cheers!

P.S. If you're a man, with pictures of your family jewels on full display, marked as friends or family only, don't add me as a friend so that my eyes get assaulted if I visit your photostream; I don't want to see your family jewels, thanks; insta-block from me if I see them. I never asked to see them, so don't expose them to me.

    *Furball* says:

    "In the short time I've known Will in viewing and commenting on his prodigious inventory of photos he's kindly shared with me and the general public. I like to say he excels tirelessly with his keen eye on subjects that most of us don't even consider. He is what I call a custodian of the past. Like the legendary Johnny Appleseed he sows through his images artifacts of bygone days for the most part. Needless to say once in awhile he breaks from that path to offer us alternative compositions that inspire him.

    So I send an invitation for everyone to explore his photostream and surprise yourself in discovering what his creative skill has to offer. You won't be disappointed!"
