Flickr sucks a bit now

A quick geek whinge about the Flickr/Yahoo! linked login thing. I use Flickr a lot less these days because of it, which is a shame.
Before, I would stay logged into Flickr all the time, which was lovely because I could see all my and my friends private photos and leave comments whenever the whim took me. Now I only log in to do specific things, and I log out again afterwards. It’s partly because it’s a pain being stuck with a particularly linked Yahoo! ID whenever I’m active in Flickr, and partly because I don’t see why Yahoo should get my data for free when I paid for a Flickr Pro account.
And the login process is really annoying – there’s a link saying ‘Old skool members, please sign in here’ but it doesn’t work if you’ve linked your Yahoo! account already.
