Why... Thank you. You're making me blush.

Am I missing something? That looks like $39.99 monthly to me.

It says 39.99 monthly then says billed annually $399.99.

I thought this was an add one-off ish problem that only Artman had experienced... after all, I had not experienced any problems so he probably has some sort of virus on his desktop, tablet, and phone...

Wait a minute... oh NOW I see the problem. Sure, that makes sense now... the problem is THEY'RE FUCKING US OVER WITH A GOOD OL' FASHION SHAKE DOWN. The bastards.



I signed up for the intro-extortion at $2.49/month, following a pop-up implying I'd be good to go...but I get this:

We'll fuck 'em. Imma download my shit and cancel this bullshit.

Yeah, it's $40/month if you want to post on forums with Photobucket.

Imgur is free and works great. Tutorial here:

I just checked on my plan. I have been paying $9.99 per year for 3 years now, 10GB storage and ad free. I'll move elsewhere if they come asking for more this year in November when my account is up for renewal. Until then I will take the lazy way out and leave my stuff there.

Here's a some joy from my photobucket library:
