It doesn't bother me so much that the 'free lunch' is over... actually, it wasn't really free anyways with all the grief experienced due to the unstable pb platform when trying to share pics. Anyways, if the butt-wipes that control it hadn't been so greedy and graduated the fees per actual usage, it might have saved their site from the backlash it is deservedly receiving.

I don't mind paying a reasonable fee for something, but $399/year is beyond ridiculous and well into the totally absurd! :lol:

Welp, as of right now if you go back and add ~original to the back of the .jpg in your image location ala ".jpg~original" the 3rd party hosting actually hosts and posts up the picture vs. their paywall image. :thup:

This is outrageous. Who would pay $399 when you have other image hosting sites that do it for free!?
