Photobucket rate increase outrageous!

Gents, have yall seen the latest policy update to Photobucket? I may be late for the party, been busy, but having to pay $400/yr to post 3rd party pics is a bit over the top. I have been paying roughly $59/yr for Fotki since they started charging for their services. I have no problem paying for the service, but I refuse to be raped in the process.

All those years of posting pics on many builds have now gone blank, so I deleted my PB account and they can go to hell, hell, hell............., as Billy the Kid said in the movie "Young guns". I would be more than willing to pay a reasonable amount for their service, but they basically were holding my pics hostage for a $400/yr fee to post pics on model websites. IMHO, not cool at all.

So, onward and forward, start NEW threads with a brief pic update of progress and off we go. See ya PB, you will soon be relegated to the dust bin of greedy service providers! Just how I see it.


Cheers, Ski.

"RuckOver Baby"
