My beliefs:

  • Love your photos
  • Categorization is Abstraction
  • Open your eyes! Photos should be inspired by nature and culture around, not (only) by lists in WP
  • Do the selection of images at home and upload only the very few images selected
  • Not everything that can be copied legally, should be copied (e.g. from Flickr) (to be honest; most of the images that can be copied legally are of no educational value)
  • There is no good reason to upload an average image of yours or from some suitable source, if there is already a lot of similar images on the same topic. This holds even more for low quality images.
  • Do not use categories for the obvious, but most unspecific property only
After quite a while he recognized that many of them were naked.

He immediately threw them out of paradise.
And then he made the rules. This happened on the next day.

I fully conform to the goal of getting rid of non-educational content, but I deeply dislike the way.
