http://www.flickr.com/photos/mhowells/2403429191/ There seems to be a lot of comment about the new Flickr Video function introduced this week. The witch hunters who were in such uproar when Flickr went multilingual have found a new cause to flap at with their Photoshop tools and tacky graphic monstrosities. Their argument being that adding video to the service is a sell-out, that Flickr/Yahoo! are destroying the world and the Flickr community by selling themselves to the devil of moving images, and that the whole Flickrverse will collapse because of an anticipated sudden influx of the "junk that you see on YouTube".
