Being a Flickr addict, I must admit I loved Flickr without the video. It isn't only me though, it turns out that there's a backlash within the Flickr community against the introduction of video. Hardcore photographers and lovers of photography are extremely upset about the move. Several groups were created to say "No to Video", one of those groups has upward of 26,000 members. Some people in the Flickr community are calling for drastic action, to quite Flickr altoghether. Whether people in Flickr (Yahoo!) are taking notice is another matter.
