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

I wonder if Pinterest is buying pics from Photobucket. Hmm. Using a hosting service seems like a losing proposition. On many forums a link with just the words "picture attachment" now comes up instead of the pic. Always a dead link. With cheap 64 GB SDs why would anyone want to use photobucket?

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

I dont know about that, but I know that facebook bought photobucket a while ago so this seems like they are constricting the market, they want the how-tos and project blog stuff to be done ON facebook, no forums.

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

Having "hard"copies of everything seems fundamental. I know anyone can use your net pics for any reason but having only the one on the net is like leaving your wallet on the sidewalk. Worse, many scammers use "stolen" pics to advertise stuff they really don't have and defraud folks for big $$. Others use stolen pics to lure you into devious websites. The pics OP may be exposed to some problems if pic can be traced. The comment about FB and forums, however, seems particularly ominous.
