It's may not be reasonable to complain about something one has been receiving for free, but I'm going to do it anyway.
If you use Photobucket you already know the flood of pop-ups there have been getting worse and worse. Now, Photobucket has discontinued 3rd. party hosting of images stored there unless you buy their "PLUS 500" plan for $400 a year.
Otherwise, any image you try to post from your Photobucket account will show up like this:What's worse
, all of those images you've posted over the years will no longer show up unless you pay the ransom. That's going to have a real negative effect on many forums, especially those with reference and "how to" posts.
Is there any way to add a photo to a post here by loading it directly from your PC file, rather than using a hosting site?
