Flickr accidentally deleted someones account, including over 4,000 images (which were thankfully backed up elsewhere). But to their credit, at least they actually delete data, where other cloud based companies do not.
"I can restore your account, although we will not be able to retrieve your photos. I know that there is a lot of history on your account-again, please accept my apology for my negligence. Once I restore your account, I will add four years of free Pro to make up for my error."
Though I empathise greatly with the photo journalist in question, I have to give credit to Flickr and their apparent 'full wipe and delete' policy of cloud stored data.
