Last month I caused a minor stir on the Flickr’s Second Life pool. This is the pool that was featured as a feed on the Linden Labs blog and was an opportunity for Flickr artist to have their screen shots displayed on a high traffic site. The crux of the problem was that blatant nudity, bare breast, genitals and violence was making it onto the feed. Although they claimed to have 8 moderators weeding this stuff out way too many were making it’s way through. I warned them they needed to do more like put up precise rules and gudelines, but they never did. The result is this:

It could have been worse, the whole feed could have been replaced or yanked completely altogether.

Here’s looking at ya!!!
