Something of a compromise. - Elf M. Sternberg
Something of a compromise.
As it turns out, there is a setting in Flickr that allows you to keep photos out of the sight of public catalogers and browsers, while still allowing you to use the link to the photos. If you set the privacy to "Family," you can still access the photo with a URL for use in blogs, but it will not show up in other individual's tag collections or catalogs.

Unfortunately, it does change the URL so I'm having to go back and fix up some older posts, and some images might be marked "unavailable" for a while until I hunt down the blog entries in which they were used.

I'm more than a little annoyed by the necessity of it all. Bleah!

You're just being a good daddy, and keeping the creepazoids as far as you can from your daughters.

And this experience you're having points out the precautions I'll probably have to take with Princess' info/images in a short while...

Elf ~ I'm so sorry for having set this all off. I don't see you guys very often, so I still have this image of her as a small child in my head, especially from helping watch all the kids the day we cleaned out the house Jenner's dad used to live in. I'd only meant to make some sort of compliment on her growing up.

Oh, I know that. Like I said, I wasn't picking on you. It just helped hilite for me this issue I'd started to notice, that my children were getting a lot of undue attention, and I'm trying to be sensitive to the issues surrounding that. People are looking at Yamaraashi-chan with different eyes, now, and she both deserves to understand that and be protected from it. Striking that balance requires that I protect her privacy a little more fiercely now than in the past.
