Don't buy Flickr ad-free option

I spent $49.00 in November 2014 for Flickr's "Ad-Free" option. Silly me! I thought that would remove ads from my online photo galleries. Ha!

What Flickr's "Ad Free" option does is remove advertiserments only from my viewing experience, and only if I am logged into my Flickr account. Others viewing my photos see Flickr's ads unless they, too, have an "Ad-Free" account AND have logged into it. Everyone else sees the ads.

For example, I recently posted photos from a church event to Flickr. Anyone from that church who looks at those photos will see Flickr's ads. I suspect no one at that church has an ad-free Flickr account. Ugly!

There's a lot I like about Flickr, but my $49.00 was wasted.
