Photojacked

So this is a photo of Kosso’s feet with rum punch, the sunset and the Caribbean ocean.

If you clicked on the photo about 10 minutes ago, you would have noticed a Flickr “user”, who has uploaded one photo, has added a note directly linking to a holiday site. At least I think it is, because I don’t want to go there and give them my hit.* It could well be something totally innocent. But I hope Yahoo gets any smart ideas about doing this with ads. I feel jacked. It might be a great little service for someone, but not me.

*By blogging about this, I wondered if they would probably get loads of bloomin’ hits so I have now removed the link.
