    Every day for the past 3 days I've been 'mentioned/tagged' (along with thousands of other Flickr users) on photos of some random selfie of a girl in a 'suggestive' pose/outfit. It's either people 'having a laugh' or Jim's mail order brides trying to drum up business or something, but how can I stop it?

    Same here, the best way is to complain to Flickr.

    I've been getting them too. I report them as spam.

    Same here @snerkler

    I believe if you go to:
    Flickr > Settings > Privacy & permissions > "Who can add you to a photo?"

    I've changed mine to "people that i follow" and haven't had any since.

    What does it say about my popularity that I'm not even getting tagged? :)
