I love Flickr. I use Flickr all the time. It is a great resource for many, many things. For me people who want to ban Flickr and other social networking sites because of their lack of understanding are simply uninformed and might as well be burning books for all the harm they are doing.
Fortunately, Michael Stephens can think and has a wonderful post on some of the current myths surrounds Flickr.
