Thank you everyone who responded. I know what my friends and I do is not the norm now.
If these were your friends, then my statement does not apply. I thought these were strangers. You didn't mention that these were from your friends. There is a much more laid back atmosphere in regard to photos among friends than if you were receiving photos from strangers. I do not think I was rude for making my statement.
