Get this one

I posted this photo on Flickr

Vanity in Second Life

For those of you who don't get it this image is NOT real.  It is a 3-D model of a nude very much like the work done in sculpture. The image is similar to this one:

or this one

well it seems people in Papal controlled Italy in the 1500s had a bit more freedom of expression than we on the web.  My picture earned this letter from the fuck shit machines that run Flickr's fascism machine.

Hello, rober1236jua!

Hello rober1236jua,

We've changed the safety level of your photostream to

As per our Community Guidelines, content like that in your
account is not considered "safe" for everyone to view. You
may or may not be aware that Flickr has a Safe Search
system. When people browse or search on Flickr, they can
filter what they see based on a safety level that they are
comfortable with - either Safe Search is on, set to
moderate, or off. In order for Safe Search to work, we
relying on *you* to filter your content appropriately. As
you upload stuff to Flickr, you need to make sure that
you're applying appropriate filters (safe, moderate or
restricted) and telling us what sort of content it is
(photos, screenshots, art & illustration). If you don't
apply filters correctly, there's a very good chance another
member will let us know - in fact that's why we've taken
action today. (No need to be upset - it's every member's
right to let us know if they ever feel uncomfortable. Yours

We want Flickr to be a place that everyone can enjoy. That
means making sure that potentially offensive content is
filtered from public, safe areas of the site. If you read
our Community Guidelines, you'll see the key points are:
play nice, upload photos that you have taken yourself, and
respect the fact that there are millions of people visiting
Flickr who may not see the world the same way you do.
Use your common sense about whether or not your content is
suitable for a global, public audience. If the answer is
no, you need to filter it from public view. You should also
know that if we receive another report about your content or
conduct, it's very likely we'll terminate your account.

So, please take a moment to find out how to work with
safety levels, use 'em, and everybody's happy!
