Contesting Flickr Bot

JamesWired says:

Immediately upon uploading, I've been informed that the Flickr bot has restricted a photo. The photo is of a male water polo team. Absolutely no way it should be restricted. Unfortunately, I can't find anyway of contesting this latest piece of fabulous technology. Could someone please tell me how to have this rating corrected? Thanks.

Set it to safe or moderate yourself, if you think the bot made a mistake, the same way you set the safety level on any image.

Here is some more info if you're interested:

I think staff mentioned that you can report false positives, to help the bot "learn", but flickr understands that the bot is not perfect, so they allow users to correct the mistakes themselves.
