Any ideas on the scope of the impacts from Photobucket's recent changes to their TOS?

I've been using them to link forum images for 10+ years, and I know I was getting it for free, but this change will disrupt a lot of threads. I would pay something to be able to link as it is a valuable service but not $400 per year.

Surely it's gotta violate something w/o warning of some sort. I mean there's millions of people that use it. I haven't read it but I would have to guess. Instead of emailing people about it they just simply pull the plug.

I think they're after more $$.

I remember seeing an email within the last week that Gmail marked as spam and I didn't read it.

Also, I should have bought all of these while I was at the car show today. Looked on ebay and they're $9+ from China.

I was planning to use something like this to isolate my electrical systems. I'm charging the 12v starting battery with the stock alternator. The three other alternators are going to be externally regulated and charge capacitor banks at 15.5-16v. I'm looking for something electrically insulated to mount posts underneath my truck.

Yeah, photobucket premium includes the 3rd party hosting

I pay $4 a month and all my photos are still up, so it isn't $400 a year (even though it says on their site they shouldn't). I initially did the pay $4 a month due to some very high traffic sites (Tigerdroppings/secrant) where I post photoshopped stuff and i exceeded my B/W limit within minutes.

Edit again: I don't even see my plan, lol. Plus 20 is mine.

testing (well it works on the cheap plan they don't offer anymore, lol. Maybe mine will stop working when they figure it out):

Life just kicks you in the nads every chance it gets. First my normal audio site gets broken and now Photobucket. Guess I'll just delete every pic and vid I have on there.
