It deserves attention because the shots he stole are not being viewed as the photographer intended them to be viewed. Both Railpictures and Flickr are being misused in this case, not to mention the photographers. Besides, you don't have to make a profit to be in violation of copyright law.

My two main outlets for sharing my photos are Railpictures and Flickr on *my* own profiles. Why would i want the views going somewhere else for my time?

If you should ever get caught speeding, tell the officer you didn't know what the speed limit was and see if that gets you out of a ticket.
