Right, just deleted my first account with Photobucket and will probably delete the other 2 next week. This will influence my older posts so I will have to take some time out to check every post and see what is lost. Same with all of my forum posts. Really didn't need this as I'm busy enough as is, but I guess we are all affected and almost all forums are now devoid of pictures, for the most.
Note that this isn't a case of not wanting to pay (well, actually it is, asking for 300 dollars on the drop of a ball is Mafia like bahaviour) as I had a paid account for most of my time with Photobucket, but I let that lapse as the quality became abysmal over the years and there was just no point.
Good riddance on one point, but a lot of extra hassle on the other end.
