This is just a notice to all that I (we) are being blackmailed by Photobucket.  All the photos that I have hosted on Photobucket have been disallowed and they are demanding $399 to allow 3rd party hosting.  Because we were not advised this when we started using the service, it seems we have no alternative than to pay their BLACKMAIL request or, too bad, they will no longer post our photos!

Please spread the word.  I for one, will not pay so all my posted photos (from Photobucket) will now be invisible!

Why use Photobucket?

I've posted quite a few images here

and have never paid a penny.

I've always posted pictures to this site direct from my computer. The trick seems to be to ensure the photo isn't too large.

Well, well.  I haven't run into the hassles yet, I'm happy to say.  Would one of you please send me the notice from PB?

As for using a storage site:  I do it because I need the fast and flexible loading features.  When I'm at the Shootout I don't have time, for instance, to re-size and necessarily limit myself to four pics at a time as well as other reasons.  I'll be bummer majorly if they take away the service as it has been.

Send me that note, please.
