Flickr Troubles; Censorship?

Not open for further replies.

Absolutely wonderful, my fun using Explore in Flickr has been reduced to viewing various absolutely inane "artwork" of angry Flickr users who claim that they have been censored. Apparently:

In English:
If your Yahoo! ID is based in Singapore, Germany, Hong Kong or Korea you will only be able to view safe content based on your local Terms of Service so won’t be able to turn SafeSearch off.
In other words that means, that german users can not access photos on flickr that are not flaged "safe" ... only flowers and landscapes for the germans ...
We will not let this happen! Copy and upload this picture to your account - show flickr who we are!
Further searches on the Internet revealed certain rather amusing stories;

Link 3

To be frank I don't really care, no system is perfect anyways, just sharing because I found it extremely amusing and hilarious.

And I want to see pretty and well-executed photographs instead of THIS:

What a waste of time, jeez.
