www.flickr.com is an alias for www.flickr.vip.mud.yahoo.com.
www.flickr.vip.mud.yahoo.com has address 68.142.214.24
www.flickr.vip.mud.yahoo.com mail is handled by 0 .
beepbeep:~ zen$ telnet www.flickr.com 80
Trying 68.142.214.24...
telnet: connect to address 68.142.214.24: Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host

weird.
The very same www.flickr.vip.mud.yahoo.com handles api.flickr.com (which is, unsurprisingly, down).
Doesn’t look smart from here.
