    I guess Yahoo was feeling harassed and intimidated. Waaah! Poor Yahoo!

    Unfortunately, as far as deleting comments, they do have that right- it is their webspace. But they can not allow other sites and companies to use our images without permission. They're supposed to be protecting its users, not making them more vulnerable.

    So that's why I must say to all artists: WATERMARK ALL OF YOUR IMAGES! You can't trust any web-hosting sites to protect you anymore, so you have to protect yourself. Plus, if someone tries to steal a watermarked images, it's that much easier to sue them later.

    Keep up the fight.

    Found this site that is almost totally uncensored:

    www.keepic.com

    Might be something for those who wants to choose by themselves what they want to see or provide to others. :)

    Why are all you people so upset? Flickr is a photo sharing service, not a political service. I just don't get it.

    I was wondering what the hell was going on! I run a personal start page called FunkyHomepage (http://www.funkyhomepage.com) and it includes a Flickr slide show. For the last 3-4 days about HALF the images that appear on the slideshow have been images protesting about censorship! Some of them even feature Nazis! If you take a look at the slideshow on my page, you'll see what I mean! So, intrigued by this, I decided to do a search on it and came to this post! Shocking! If the slideshow on Funky Homepage is anything to go by, then nearly half the images recently posted on Flickr have been to do with censorship! I wonder how Yahoo feels about this now?! I bet they never expected this kind of a response! It's fantastic how you've all rallied behind this issue. Fantastic.

    This is terrible. I thought Flickr was much more open minded than some of the other photo hosting sites. I might have to look in to establishing my own site. I'm not sure I can stomach the thought of giving money to a company that behaves like this.

    picli.com will censor nothing but porn and copywrited content, it is maintained by its users. Come and join the fun.

    dunno what the hell this was all about. but it was about censorship right? how much does it take to piss yahoo off? anyway, rebekka is cute. and she does photography! which is at least two things this pretty girl is good at.

    I wonder how much drama there would be if Thomas Hawk got deleted from flickr without warning.
