So I guess there’s nothing I can do about my Flickr account. They responded to my email giving me a generic message, just how I thought they would, saying that I “violated terms set in their user guidelines”. I’ve always moderated all of my content and set anything not suited for younger viewers as private. I also don’t use flickr for commercial use. I just use it to post images on my blog, which I don’t use for commercial use and I don’t sell anything. I responded asking for the exact instance that I’ve violated terms in their guidelines so I can have an internet law lawyer go over it. It’s a good thing that in my line of work I have access to these kind of resources. I’m hoping that I don’t have to resort to legal action. It just upsets me because all of my blog content was on my flickr account. The nearly 4 years of blog images were all linked from Flickr.
I’m now thinking of buying webspace and starting my own website so I wouldn’t have to deal with stuff like this. What if blogger suddenly decides to censor my blog or delete it? I’d be devastated! I have been considering creating my own site and possibly making a members section for…well, you know. I guess I just don’t know where to start. After all this, it seems like it’s a sign.
