Default Photobucket now charging to host photos

As many of you know, Photobucket has turned into a pay site. Most of the images that users previously uploaded have turned into this without warning:

Last revised June 28, 2017

Free account : Each individual Member gets one free account that provides 2 GB of free storage or space available for your original photo files, or videos under 10min. The free account does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting. If a free account Member exceeds their Content Limit, their account will be immediately suspended and they will need to become a “Paying Member” (defined below) in order to continue accessing their account. You can upgrade to a Plus account at any time.
If you have a website, content thread or blogs with multiple images hosted by Photobucket, say goodbye to all of your photos... unless you elect to pay $40 a month (or $400 per year) for their service.

A couple of years ago, Imageshack pulled this same stunt without warning, so I stopped using their site. Looks like I'm done with Photobucket now, too. Fortunately, I have a Flickr account, but I'm sure it'll only be a matter of time before they decide to charge as well.

Dave, please fix the spelling in the title. Thanks in advance!
