    Yeah, I think the days of free third party hosting are numbered. I've had a SmugMug account for years for storing photos for years. The only reason I ever started using Photobucket was for ease of third party hosting. The Photoimage site is very easy to use for that. No account needed, just upload a pic, click on the "hotlink for forums" tab, then paste it on a forum. I'm sure that's going to go away soon though, too.

    Facebook works. One of the reasons I still have a Facebook is the thousands of pictures I have on there. It's fast and easy to use. No pop up ads. The Albums are easy to organize.

    Even if you don't want to do the Facebook thing, it's easy enough to set up a fake Facebook account just for pictures.

    The issue isn't totally about individual photos being "safe" - consider the millions of forum threads filled with helpful posts on how to fix things or reviews of products... all rendered useless with the photos now removed.

    It's an immensely dickish move on the part of Photbucket.

    I wish them nothing but misery and plagues of flies and mysterious blisters on their genitals for what they have done.

    I'd have either marked the accounts read only (no more updates) until after some agreement was reached, or moved accounts to slower servers and a lower bandwidth connection. Yea it'd cause some consternation, but as you said it would break good chunks of the internet, and screw over people who aren't even involved (namely those looking to fix something without taking it to someplace that will cost them a shitload of money.)
