Flickr: Why File Sharing Is Bad

Flickr groups (for those of you who have not got religion yet) are an online photo album to which anyone in the group can contribute. Of all the parts of Flickr it is the most wasted (partly because the features need work, partly because it is hard to find new groups, partly because they tend to be drastically over or under moderated.) The most popular groups are naturally the most prosaic since there are more photos which fit into it, but there are smaller groups which have interesting ideas. Why File Sharing is Bad was an idea I liked a whole lot, but unfortunately appears to have died.
