The irony is lost on Paul


It’s about time I posted this. Months ago this photo on Flickr was spammed by a company selling “all of categories for industries and life”.

I’m sure he never looked closely at the title of the image or translated it in to his local language.. 🙂

Flickr Support promptly removed this individual’s comment and replied,

Dear Sir:

I am a vice director of Flickr Report Abuse Co., Ltd to
supply all of categories for photo-sharing industries and

I am content to contact you for deleting this business.


I had to read it twice, but cracked me up once I got it! 🙂

    Hah! That’s pretty good.

    It would make you wonder how much business these guys get from spamming flickr?

    If you actually click on his link you get a brilliant “phongflickr2008 doesn’t have anything available to you.” message!

    I suppose they might think that they could make industries and life out of st. patrick’s day!
