Fleshing out the photo information…

November 1, 2009

Wow, who wants to see that picture of a man with his flesh eaten away in your lead story on www.reuter.com?

Seriously, even on Halloween, one should have the option on clicking on something that makes it obvious that something gruesome follows.

It makes me question your judgment in general…I may change your site from being my home page. I can guarantee I won’t be going back to your page today.

Yours was the only complaint I saw regarding this photo. As the photo caption made clear, it was a man in makeup – not “a man with his flesh eaten away…”

Happy Halloween! GBU Editor
