Censorship in Flickr Forums

The Flickr censorship issue may be coming to a head; as usual, bloggers had to wait for the mainstream media to get involved before the company would acknowledge that there was a legitimate issue at stake (referring to their actions as a "mistake"). Thomas Hawk is on top of it, and says he has been censored himself, but can't get a straight answer out of Flickr founder Stewart Butterfield about his case. Ever the provocateur, he has blogged a report on the issue, and posted it - wait for it - on Flickr.

If you're a member of the Flickr community and want to share your views about the issue, the best place to do it is on Flickr.
