Photobucket has decided, out of the blue, to hold all their users' photos for ransom. They're now demanding $400 a year for third-party hosting rights, i.e., the ability to post a link to a photo on their site and have the picture itself show up, not just a link. This for literally billions of photos. With no warning whatsoever. What is it with companies just shitting on users' heads like this out of nowhere?

So now I have to go through my accounts and make sure I have copies of everything so I can host the pics elsewhere. Christ, what a pain in the ass. I wonder if this is going to be business as usual from now on - offer a free service, get everyone hooked on it for years, then hit them with exorbitant fees without warning, in hopes they'll bite. Nice.
