Maybe the photographer was supposed to be at work or is a RR employee and shouldn't be using electronic devices.

Seems to me like the photograph itself would make it obvious where a person was, and date would be different than time....I guess if it's that big of deal that shouldn't have been taking that photo, then you probably shouldn't be posting it online.

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.

But that applies to online posts almost everywhere!

You just don't like it because that is where you live.
