Lightroom: Ability to turn off synchronisation of general text added to albums in Flickr

I upload photos to Flickr from Lightroom (CC) and I have request concerning some unintentional changes made in my uploaded albums.
I like to add text to go with each album; when I have edited this, I save it. If I add another photo to this album later, the text disappears, and I understand this has to do with the synchronization between LR and Flickr. I have now been informed by your support team that it is impossible to turn off this specific effect, but I could ask you to put it on the wishlist . This text is created in Flickr, it is a general text for the whole album and not part of text for individual photos. I don’t understand why later changes in LR should interfere here. I would like to be able to turn off synchronisation for this particular text, so that it is protected from being removed whenever I do something in LR later. I don’t see why this LR-created text should be a part of the synchronisation in the first place.

I see what you mean -- annoying.

As a workaround, you could try this third-party Flickr plugin: http://regex.info/blog/lightroom-good.... The author has an excellent reputation and maintains his plugins better than Adobe maintains Lightroom. (In fact, the author designed the plugin publishing architecture built into Lightroom.)
