Well, Flickr deleted my account for reasons as of yet unknown...there was no indication, no warning, nothing...so rather than go through it all again, I decided to splurge and buy a domain to post on. Details to follow!
It seems like the Flickr logic is to delete first and respond to questions later...and slowly, even then. And it's likely too late at that point anyway...all of your pics, contacts, messages, mail...it's *all* gone. Poof!
