They may not have liked the content, but they've made it very clear that no accounts may be named with the word "Dakar" set up. As far as flagrant contravention a twitter account "@DakarRallyRaid" is about as big a red flag as could be had.
does this mean that i'm infringing on their content policies by reposting the images that they're publicly posting on their own website?
i hope not.
with that said... LET'S POST SOME MORE PHOTOS!
