a very virtual sacrifice

all a bit chapman brosA curious incident over on popular photo-hosting site, Flickr, a group called Flickritis is being cultured and grown specifically to be deleted. Its aim to become the biggest group on Flickr, after which "a "Thanks-From-Everyone : Delete-This-Group" topic will be posted for everyone to sign. We'll know when the Flickr gods get the message when they cure (delete) flickritis."

Intrigued by the cargo cult overtones, I've been keeping an eye on it all day. I posted three favouries --twigs for the coming sacrificial fire. It's already gathering add-on rituals, heretics. There's a six-word story game going, an admin has randomly started kicking people out of the group, and it's already attracted crazed followers and wild-eyed prophets.

Currently standing at 4351 members and 23783 photos, or was mere moments ago. (The current biggest group contains 10378, so they've a way to go yet.)

Hello, everyone else re-reading childrens books on my friendslist at the moment! Must be something in the air. I've put on my autumn coat and started reading The Owl Service.

Speaking of which, £75 is too much to speand on a coat. But ack, gah, it looked so good. (I didn't buy it.)
