Received via email tonight:
Hello Stowe Boyd
We have successfully received your photo. Unfortunately our site moderators* have been unable to validate it for one of the following reasons:
- Visibly, it isn’t you
- It might be you… but the photo doesn’t show your face
- There are several people and we cannot identify you
- You are wearing sunglasses
Your photo is important because it is used to introduce you to other travellers and to make meeting other people easier when you are travelling. We therefore ask you to deposit a fresh photo.
For more details, please consult our Terms and Conditions and our traveler charter.
Please excuse the temporary inconvenience,
See you soon on Bluenity!

This is what happens when you are rigid and controlling. Reminds me of my experience with Xing a few years ago, where the community manager wouldn’t let me start a group on social tools!
