Sorry you're incorrect. Flickr has more porn and nudity than most sex sites.

You must surf some really lame sex sites.

I guess you haven't used Flickr much.

I rarely post any photos of people I know online for the sake of privacy. too many creeps lurking in the shadow waiting for a shot to exploit. Email or private galleries only for family photos!

Or maybe YOU just haven't seen a lot on Flickr.

This is entirely true. I use Flickr to host photos that I display in this forum. I occasionally search flickr for examples from a particular lens or photographic technique. I did read the rules when I signed up and they did say that nudity and pornography (which are not the same thing) were not allowed. I have never seen an image on flickr that I felt violated the rules but, I'm not looking for them.

There are plenty of both!


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

I have my galleries on flickr. And all was well until someone 'favorited' one of my shots. The image was of a 10 year old boy, who's family had me shoot them. I started to look around on their flickr page (the person who faved mine) and was instantly shocked. It was full of kid shots, most of them borderlining child pornography. I knew, immediately, my shot didn't belong on his page. I was able to tag the image to not appear on his page.
Has the ever happened to you? If the person who found the image is from this site, no offense to you, just keep my images off of your site please.

I somehow doubt that Flickr has "borderline child pornography" on it.

Creepy for sure. I often post pics of my kids online and haven't experienced this. I'd be very interested in uncovering who this suspicious character is.

Not cool at all if they really are some child lurker

Well, since you've so far refused to actually provide a link to this so-called "borderline child pornography", I'm going to assume you're one of those paedo panic people who cry "porn!" when they see a photo of a kid in a swim suit.

And I'm not a dude.

There's full on hardcore porn on flickr - try removing your safe filter and see what happens.

I've already provided an example. Why do you want a link so bad?

your example is strictly your opinion. doesnt mean its considered porn to that person saving it.
This thread seems pointless...

That requires them to log in, which was the issue I was having. No one else in my family does photography, so no one else has a flickr page. Now that I'm back in Va it's not a big deal anyway since everyone gets to see the kids now.

no. it does not require them to log in. i put all my family photos on flickr. they're all set to private. you can then make a "guest pass" link for the set and send that to your family members. they can see the whole set and your public photos only. they won't be able to check out your other private sets unless they have a specific "guest pass" for those, too. after a few months, i expire those guest passes when i think they've had sufficient time to browse through the photos and download the ones they want to keep.
