    Nope. Got right in, and downloaded my folders.

    I just tried in my phone and apparently I'm still logged in because I didn't need to do anything - I'm "already in".

    Will try at home again later, but last night I got nowhere.

    They clearly didn't hit everyone at once.
    The forum member who sells his hand made sights for Mosins posted about this a few days ago and at that time my photos were unphased.
    Now all my pics are replaced with that hotlinking icon.

Yeah, yeah, there's a legal "intellectual property" argument but in reality, if you post or save something to the PUBLIC internet, it's now out there for the taking and using.
    Fully agree, the cloud is no place for anything personal. Really the cloud is no place for anything. Keep your files on your devices, learn how to back them up. Don't tell me they are safer on the cloud, they are not. You are giving someone else responsibility to protect them, and they won't.
    Wheaties aren't made out of the same stuff today as they were 40 years ago.

    UPDATE: Account deleted, but according to PB ". . . it may take 48 hrs to delete your account. Click here to recover your account."

    As if.

    So all the pics of guns that I've ever posted here and elsewhere from my PB account are gone from threads. Just as well, given that I lost all the guns in a shipping accident:

    So that's what happened to the dinosaurs... Man Noah, you're a shitty captain. No wonder your arc only stayed afloat for 40 days.
    ...and the hits just keep on coming. #MAGA
