We've got your photos

I finally upgraded to a pro account at Flickr today, which means two things:
1) I am now paying to store my pictures online.
2) Flickr will either go bankrupt or become obsolete in a few months.

What I found amusing was the sort of ransom note that they put on top of my homepage that was supposed to encourage me to upgrade: "None of your photos have been deleted, and if you upgrade, they'll all come back unharmed."

They should have added something like: "Do not attempt to contact the police. Leave the money for your account upgrade in a plain paper sack, underneath the flyover at the Gabalfa Interchange. Don't try anything smart, Chris -- you wouldn't want any sort of an accident to happen to your pictures of castles, would you?"
