Re: Photo Hosting

It has come to my attention that Photobucket has recently started blocking photo access for anyone running an adblocker. A personal policy of mine is that I will not, under any circumstances, do business with (or even knowingly use) a website that does this. I wholeheartedly believe in the rights of Internet users to customize their preferred web browser as they see fit without having their browsing experience restricted in any manner, and anyone with basic knowledge of web-based monetization formats knows that there's very little money to be had in digital ad revenue anyway. Go ahead and run ads if you really feel like there's something to gain from it, but don't force them upon people as a requirement for using your website. As a result of this, Photobucket is losing a customer who has been with them for 12 years, and I'm currently exploring other options for photo hosting. I apologize to anyone affected by this.

The photos still display here, but when I click on it, it brings me to the adblocker page. Yeah, I wish sites wouldn't do that sort of thing either.
