While I have no problem with people taking photos of me, or even
uploading them to their own web site or to a Debian website, I am always
uncomfortable with uploads to 3rd party websites which nobody in the
Debian community owns.

Could we just *stop* uploading to flickr, picassa, and such? I don't
trust them. I don't like them. They *must* monetize somehow, and they
may one day sell pictures of anyone, then claim that it's in the TOS and
we may as well just shut up if that happens... It's not as if there was
no free software to host such content!
