Photobucket is at it again

Postby koimaster » May 21st 2019, 10:28am

Photobucket currently hosts over 130 million photos for over 11 million free users! Effective June 1, 2019, new hosting limits will take effect that will impact a small portion of our image hosters.

What Are the New Limits?
Free hosters will be restricted to 25MB of hosting bandwidth per month. YOUR CURRENT USAGE IS OVER 25MB PER MONTH SO THIS NEW LIMITATION WILL AFFECT YOU.

What Happens If I Go Over My Bandwidth Allowance?
Free hosters, like you, who use more than 25MB of bandwidth will have all of their hosted photos watermarked and blurred.

To restore hosting privileges and to avoid having your images blurred and watermarked after June 1, simply purchase a premium subscription plan for unlimited monthly bandwidth. Our plan pricing is the most competitive in the photo hosting industry.

Yep. They have already stopped the photo edit ability except for cropping or re-sizing.

Fucking ransomware. I'm very glad that I've deleted my account there. I believe I've posted here before the short message I wrote them upon them requesting providing a reason for deleting the account...
Deleting the account, as I won't have my pictures hosted by a bunch of fucking fleecers, who swindle people into paying for nothing that couldn't be had for free elsewhere. I hope that swindle of a business goes belly up, as it fucking should. Fare thee well and good fucking riddance, you sorry bunch of blithering wankers.

The more shocking thing to me is people being surprised that a for-profit company might draw you in by offering benefits and then squeeze you for cash once you rely on them.

How was that not foreseeable?

Same thing for all the companies offering cloud-based storage or data back-up. You would have to be an idiot to rely on them assuming they will never squeeze you once they have all your stuff and you are reliant on them.

Mr. Bedlam, you are correct, but it still sucks balls.

Yep, I'll need to start saving the important pics from Imgur to my photos software to get ahead of things.
