PhotoBucket wants ordinary people to go away and not bother them.

I plan on transferring all my photos to Flickr and then deleting my Photobucket account.

Exactly what they want you to do so it frees up their storage.

Don't delete your photobucket account. Other people can still see the images you posted if they install an add-on in their web browser.

Actually, its trying to survive. There is no profit hosting freeloaders consuming disk and network bandwidth for years. Time to pay up or leave.

That sounds about right to me.

Leaving my pics there, if nothing more than to not help with their storage bandwidth. Having visited the site a couple times recently to check, pop ups and ads are out of control.

Photo Bucket seems to be using the same technique that the NFL and ESPN uses,.....irritate your customers until the majority of your customers leave for good. Photobucket is as dead to me as ESPN and the NFL and NBA are.

Any suggestions for Firefox?
