conall..:thanks, but it's not my photo, rather a friend's who I follow. If you notice above in my original post, a staff member edited the title and removed the name I had posted, so we can assume they saw it, but of course, no other reply from them with an answer of sorts...it may even be a flickr screw up, if that's possible.

In several cases where the original photographer was also on flickr, I reported it to the photographer, so they could claim copyright. In one case the photographer reported the thief who had posted a prom photo of her daughter among photos that should have been restricted, and then deleted her own account in disgust.
