Re: Photobucket is pulling a fast one, so beware.

i see this photobucket thing as a short term problem
someone bought it hoping to make a bunch of money and will find out that we have backup pics
the real losers are all the diy forums with an endless wealth of information all lost to this ransom demand
i doubt if many commercial operations use photobucket for this reason

i use photobucket for convenience as i post pics to multiple forums
always figured they'd eventually go to pay, but i was thinking $25 per yr which most people would pay
even with 2000 pics on photobucket i only use 3% of my free storage quota, they are safe on photobucket for now
but if they won't ever allow free 3rd party linking they can delete my account today

f' you photobucket
