The takedown was in error (from a porn company) and Flickr allowed him to repost the image. However, the fallout ( http://gormano.blogspot.com/2012/03/if-this-picture-looks-bit-familiar-it.html ) is that all the original comments are now lost and the many links to the original picture are now broken. Sure Flickr needed to remove the image, but surely there should be a way to reinstate it keeping all the original comments and links?"
