blacked out photos... don't panic

some of you on flickr may have noticed the blacked out (tv noise style) image appearing a lot... don't panic it is not big brother gone wild... it is a new type of self filtering... that allows responsible folk to categories and classify their images so they wont be accidental exposed to minors, wowsers, grandmothers (or the easily offended)...

I for one think it is a good system and everyone should think about using it... If uou see a black screen and it is someone you know and trust.. click through... if you don't know them and they have a greybot buddy icon... don't bother

there is even an implication that art does exist on flickr... (may the NIPSA witch hunts for art, and artist works could be a thing of the past)
