LOL - CC is cool but confusing. I'm trying to learn the difference between CC (in all its flavors), GNU, etc. It's hard to figure out exactly what to write for the citation and what to link to. My perception is that there are thousands of websites that take shortcuts, making it even more confusing. So I can see why you might want to ditch it.
It's very confusing for everyone! I will change them all and then people only have to pay attention to my rules - but as I have to access each photo separately to change the licence it's very time-consuming!
