Upload photos that include frontal nudity, genitalia or anything else that your bathing suit should cover in public areas of Flickr.
If you do we’ll make your photostream private and remind you of this Guideline. If you don’t heed our warning and continue to make similar content public, we’ll terminate your account without warning. This applies to your Buddy Icon as well.
That’s their perogative, but it seems like overkill to me. Shouldn’t they attempt to discriminate between art and pornography? Maybe they should consider adding an ‘adults only’ check box or standard tag, so that young Flickrites won’t see naughty pictures? If I’m, say, a legitimate portrait photographer who shoots nudes (which, disappotingly, I’m not), and have hundreds or thousands of nude photos in Flickr, I’d be pretty ticked off by this new policy.
I figured I’d upload a photo of some genitalia (seen here), to see if I get dinged.
