Sometimes, I think that decisions with regard to images that technically violate the "rules" are made for business reasons. It is likely that the screeners believe that some images will generate significant views, and that is a larger consideration than the technical rules violation. In the case of Steve's image, it cleared 1,500 views in 24 hours, perhaps helped a little by the controversy associated with this thread. 1,500 views is a pretty good 24 hr run for an image on RP these days, so in retrospect, the screener's call on that photo was probably a good one from the standpoint of RP as a business.

Two things to remember:
  1. Don't get too hung up on "the rules"
  2. RP is a business, not a government agency. I think they try to be fair.....but they don't HAVE to be.

My RP stuff is here.

Link to my Flickr Albums. Lots of Steam Railroad stuff there from all over the US.
