Intermission 2 – Profile Update
Image by raider3_anime
This one’s mainly for informational purposes, for the folks who don’t even bother to read my profile information.
Effective as of Sunday, April 18th, 2010 – Based on a few of the most recent contact adds I’ve been getting.
To this date, I haven’t attracted anyone who features photos of their naughty bits in their streams, but I have had a few people with default "Blockhead" icons, and of course the, "(user name) doesn’t have anything available to you." and/or blank profiles.
I’d like to hope that people are adding me because they like what I have to offer, and that I’m not just some sort of object, character, or curiosity to them.
A couple of contacts on my list have recently been getting singled out, one of them for no apparent reason. I don’t sit well with it at all. If anyone tries to do the same to me, I will defend what I post up here (Which I strictly moderate) and I will appeal any and all challenges.
Once again, I make no apologies or regrets for the photos I post, or the text that goes with them.
I’ve had a couple of my friends tell me outright that some of the stuff I post disturbs them, but at the end of the day – It’s my Flickr, I’m the one paying for a Pro status account, and I’m the one who determines what gets posted here. My account has always been determined to be "safe", and I intend to keep it that way.
I do, however, stand by my contacts who are coming under fire. I would trust some out there would do the same for me if it came down to it.
Cherry Blossom Parade photos will resume shortly.
Consider yourselves fortunate – I was seriously considering taking down all my photos (in other words, marking them all private, in protest and support of a contact on my list.) – Fortunately, I’m learning to temper down my emotional knee-jerk responses. Going to move from the laptop to the desktop in about 5 minutes (Tuesday 2010.4.20 – 0005 PDT)
Effective as of 0017 on 2010.4.20 –
I’ve set my default upload filter settings to "Moderate", and will manually adjust as needed. Just looking out for myself.
