…Flickr users don’t like Microsoft?

Microsoft Vs Flickr

To say that Flickr users aren’t exactly excited about the idea of Microsoft taking over Yahoo! and subsequently corrupting their user experience would be putting it lightly.

Currently, the Flickr group called “Microsoft: Keep Your Evil Grubby Hands Off Of Our Flickr” has North of 2,000 members, and over 200 photos have already been submitted.

It might not be pretty, but it’s definitely good for a laugh or two if you’ve never seen what a bunch of angry photo nerds can do with some time and a bucket full of motivation.
