No the issue of pictures has been raised before. It is generaly
accepted that since they pretty much have to be original reseach we
are not going to worry about them. I know that policy wonks appear to
have replaced deletionists as the people to blame for everything but
it is worth remebering that they do want to see wikipedia suceed they
just see a slightly different root.
