I am not sure what you are trying to say, I actually pay Flickr with
real cash money to store my data there. We shouldn't go as far as to
force or even encourage users to store their data with third parties
but we certainly shouldn't forbid it either. I, for one, *do* want to
use all of these services and can't see why GNOME should make it any
harder :)
