Linking to a Photo on Flickr

Flickr gives you two ways to do this. You can display the picture in the size you want, but the link goes back to the Photo’s page on Flickr. Or you can just link to the picture with no link back.

Flickr is kind enough to give you the HTML for both options.

But then they tell you that you must use Option 1 or you’ll be out of compliance with the Flickr Community Guidelines. Remember, Flickr can ban you for not following them – they are more Rules than Guidelines.
So why show Option 2 and tempt users into transgressions?

I am confused. Perhaps there are instances when Option 2 is permitted.
