"oh no! not another flickr post!" i can hear you scream! and to me that feels as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. well, not really but you get what i'm saying. maybe.
i've previously mentioned that i've locked all of my photos on flickr older than one month so that no one, except me, can comment or post tags or notes. i did this because as soon as flickr requires a yahoo login (without offering the grandfather "old skool" flickr signin as well) i'll only be using flickr as a photo storage facility and not my social networking site of choice.
"so what?" you might ask. (god, you're punchy today!) well, apparently, simply locking down all of my photos was not the answer to my problem. i unintenionally found a loophole.
i've long known that any photos posted to groups would be visible to anyone that looks in that group regardless as to whether or not anyone had marked the photo as private, "friends only", etc. what i DIDN'T know was that COMMENTS CAN ALSO BE MADE if a photo has been posted to a group regardless as to whether or not said photos had been marked as "no one can comment. NO ONE!!".
it's an irritating bug. i wish that they would fix it. but, seeing as how no new features except a useless yahoo toolbar item have been released in months, i decided to hack around the problem.
this means that i no longer have any photos in any groups. (except for two "what's in your bag" photos.) and this makes me ms. antisocial, i'm sure. whatever. it had to be done.
and that's all i've really got to say about that. except perhaps to add who the hell invited me to a "churches of the world" group? i mean, COME ON! *serious eyeroll*
ok, this has been a bitchy post. have a photo of peel on the house.
