I agree 100%, Mike. If a photo is worth the time to process and post, it's worth the time to describe it to its viewers. As much as it's true that every photo tells a story, it's also true that every story needs context. The only pass that I would give on your rule is for foreign contributors who speak little or no English.

While we all make the occasional typo, I am also continually amazed by the number of captions that are submitted with almost no regard for spelling or grammar.
