Flickr Foibles

A while back I wrote about Flickr's photo hostage thing. I eventually succumbed, and paid up. Now it's happened again. I need a good solution for this. Electronic data is so fragile, and delicate, and yet so useful in electronic form. Perhaps it really is worth $25/year - not just because they host and store my pictures fairly reliably, but because it keeps my pictures safe from my foolishness. In other words, it actually of value to me to limit my own interaction with my data. I wonder if that concept can be applied elsewhere?
