Jun-30

According to: http://www.pcmag.com/news/354711/photobucket-breaks-image-links-across-the-internet

That means that all images posted here from Photobucket over the years may soon vanish. RIP

Yup - eventually the photo blog I started here in 2008 will be nothing but PB junk. This forum and my Bird Brained Forum will be as well. Bird Brained gets a little use but this one does not. Photobucket is making quite the name for itself. I'm hoping some that are financially effected by this band together and launch a class action suit. You can't always get away with being an asshole.

Unless you're the (not my) president . .

(feel free to delete political commentary - just couldn't resist) 

There's another good example... I was thinking of this particular asshole http://www.cbc.ca/news/health/pharma-bro-fraud-trial-1.4177786

But it's not like there's a shortage of them lol

 

Yeah, it looks (some days) as if there's a contest to see who can be the biggest jerk.

Photophuckit!

WE NOTICED THAT YOU HAVE BEEN USING
PHOTOBUCKET FOR 3RD PARTY HOSTING*

PLEASE UPGRADE TO A PLUS 500 PLAN.

Our Terms of Service does not allow 3rd party hosting with your current account level.
UPGRADE NOW
*What is 3rd Party Hosting?
Photobucket defines 3rd party hosting as the action of embedding an image or photo onto another website. For example, using the <img> tag to embed or display a JPEG image from your Photobucket account on another website such as a forum, Etsy, eBay auction listings, a blog, etc. is definitively 3rd party hosting.
Why Photobucket?
Photobucket is the global destination for linking and 3rd party hosting. In Photobucket’s 14-year history, the Company amassed over 100 million registered users, over 15 billion images stored, 2 million daily uploads and 10 billion photos accessed monthly.
Easy to Use – Upload a photo from any device and copy the embed code with one click to host a photo with no development or technical knowledge required
Competitive, fixed pricing Offers the only unlimited 3rd party hosting plan (Commercial and Personal Use)

Soooo - it's very depressing to see all the work put into my blog, this forum and my Bird Brained one over taken by PB My new idea is to combine a blog and a forum and open a Blorum... or a frog, I can't decide on the name. It would actually be a Zeta forum.
