I still don't understand why flickr charges for pro accounts, they do earn money from our images on yahoo image search which has ads. I would rather see ads than pay $24 because then you don't feel so locked into one service. I know nothing in life is free but don't tell me flickr is not profitable, flickr basically sold us out when yahoo bought them. How much money did these people make? IT was a community that many people spent many hours giving it the value it had when they were able to sell it for a profit to yahoo.
