Do you think it's better not to have a photo of what has happened to a fair number of LiPo packs when they have failed catastrophically? Then the optimists could imagine that LiPo catastrophic cell failure is nothing more than a puff of smoke, and pessimists could imagine a stick of dynamite detonating. The real truth lies somewhere in between, and is accurately depicted by the photo. Likewise, there'd be nothing wrong with showing photos of other types of cells failing as long as the photos accurately depict their typical failure modes.

As I said, I think you're trying to cover all the bases by repeating the guide's warning that lithium cells can be dangerous, but then using dramatic hyperbole that calls the whole Guide into question simply because you disagree with the inclusion of the photo.

Had you made a straightforward case in your first message for excluding the photo, this thread would have quickly focused on the issue you apparently intended to try to raise with all of the dramatic use of language about the Guide in general.
