Spock removed these photos from my profile
Spock is a people search site. I just uploaded these two photos to my profile page. Actually, they're digital artwork that I created myself.
Within less than an hour, I got an email from Spock.
Spock users have flagged and deleted a picture which you contributed to Steven Streight's search result. Flagging and deletion occurs for a number of reasons. Sometimes it is because information is factually incorrect, sometimes it is because contributions are inappropriate.
For more information please visit our community guidelines here:
That's the entire email message.
Do you see anything wrong with these images? Offensive? Flagged?
Why would they remove them?
Worse, the email contains no link to a Contact Us If You Think a Mistake Was Made. This is an ill-considered, poorly managed flagging/removal policy.
Plus: you get a limited number images you can upload, and there's no way to delete any images once uploaded. You can't change your mind, delete an image, and replace it with another image.
Check out all my Vaspers photos on Spock.
