On March 15th we’ll be discontinuing the old email-based Flickr sign in system. From that point on, everyone will have to use a Yahoo! ID to sign in to Flickr.
I have received lately this message in which Flickr seems to fall down Yahoo’s doctrine, as ever I have alawys hated Yahoo, I found this thread extremely disgusting and tyrannic, that the best photo sharing system got screwed with a simple commercial issues, I have even stopped posting photos there and willing to cut down with what was a beautiful service … Down with the sickness down with yahoo !
All over the blogs I have seen people who are part of the old school (as long as Flickr membership is no more allowed) more angry that Am i from this new obligation.
An interesting article in BBC featuring this ugly fact :
Why are the Old Skool members being treated like second class citizens on this issue? We are the community that made Yahoo buy you guys.
