Default Photobucket Is Back?

Based on what I've seen on a couple of other forums this morning, I'm guessing Photobucket abandoned that stupid, third party hosting deal. Anybody know the story?

They are charging a lot less or something. I don't care. There are better alternatives. They screwed up

They already sealed their fate when they pulled their little greedy back stabbing stunt.

Hope they slowly and PAINFULLY choke to death.

Yep, that should go down as the biggest, self-inflicted wound in the history of the Internet. I'm thinking the majority of their previous customers will tell them to pound sand. At least the old stuff is back now.

My favorite number is FREE so I guess I'll never be going back.

I just logged into PB just to see if my old library was there. I was able to get in but holy cow is that an awful site now. Nonstop popups, it's pretty much unusable now. I hate the internet sometimes.

Yup, at first I was upset with all the images that I had shared to help others over the years but once I had realized that every forum has the ability for one to post the image(s) for nothing, I had realized that, as probably many others have, that there is no need for Photo Bucket.

Even if it were $.01 cent per year, I would not pay.

I did, though, just go back and reset my password and if using it is free again, I'll use it, if not, I will never pay.
