Photobucket has banned me (opposition to universal healthcare not tolerated)
self | mainestategop

Posted on 07/07/2011 2:28:19 PM PDT by mainestategop

Photobucket has banned my account with them. Reason? Because of hateful rhetoric. I posted several demotivational posters on there entitled universal healthcare head shot. It was an idea for a meme that a friend of mine in Santa Barbara came up with. It had pictures of the holocaust and so on and illustrated that a government powerful enough to give you free healthcare will not only deny you healthcare but even promote deathcare. Hence Hitler's holocaust and Stalin's purge. I also threw in pictures from South Africa, World war 1, China and so on.

I was banned. According to the email I recieved a few days ago, the pictures violated use policy and were conisdered hate speech. There you have it. If anything this should give us notice, universal healthcare will lead to a socialist holocaust like the liberals pulled off in Germany and purges in Russia and it further illustrates that the liberals haven't changed since then. Call themselves what they want to, they are against freedom and liberty and will silence anyone who opposes them. I also urge all of you to do no business with Photobucket since they are liberal dominated and will ban you in a heartbeat if you oppose liberalism at all.

I have emailed photobucket to discuss the situation with them but i imagine I will probably be hooked up to a tool. I will post the email if that is the case.

So find a web host that will let you direct link photos and tell Photobucket to pound sand. They’re not the only game in town.

Assuming everything read here is accurate I'd take Photobucket's response so far to suggest they have a truckload of neo-nazis and skinheads running the place.

The only people those photos are critical of are the nazis!

Since there is anti-government and anti-obama stuff on PhotoBucket, yours must have been really bad.

Why don’t we ALL join photobucket, post “hateful” (anti-Obamacare) pix and get banned? It should tie them up for weeks!

My guess is, it’s not so much “opposition to universal healthcare “ that’s the problem, as much as the pictures of the Holocaust, etc.
They might not go over real big here either.

I believe Tinypic is now owned by Photobucket.

I use photobucket and have all kinds of pics there that bash and ridicule specific liberals and leftism in general. I've never had any trouble.

I use Imagecave as a backup, same thing, no hassles.

You might want to try Imagecave, maybe that will work out better for you. Good Luck.

Pffft. My buddy makes money thru affiliate marketing and uploading bootleg/porno stuff and he has at least 75 image hosting sites, and some of them even pay you for using their images.

Photobucket isn’t the only deal in town. Thank God for free market competition. Just move to another site and e-mail PB to eff themselves.

I had a picture of Hitler giving a speech, but with Obama’s face on it giving the Nazi salute.

They pulled it down.

I use Dropbox now. You can host ANYTHING on Dropbox (documents, photos, music, video) and you don’t need a browser to do it. You can even set up a webpage on it if you want.

The application creates a directory on your computer called “Dropbox”, and inside that is a file called “Public”. You simply drag a pic inside the Public folder, then right click on it and choose “Copy Public Link”.

Works like a charm, and so far, they’ve not removed or censored any of my files.

I had a similar experience with photobucket last September 11. They kept taking down this and related pics...

...they told me it was offensive, but they still allowed other people to upload pics of Serrano's 'Piss Christ.'

They banned me, too. I didn’t have anything bad on their site. At first they kept removing single pictures then banned me altogether.
I use TinyPic. It’s owned by Photobucket, but I can still use it.
Bunch of Obama lovers.

Photobucket I hate photobucket! They have banned me 3 times, all because I post anti-obama and anti- liberal artwork. All it takes is one gay,liberal hater to complain and they cut you off at the knees.

I use it on Win7 with FF 3.6 and no issues.

What I like about it is it’s a single click to grab and upload.

Another one to try is imageshack.com

Another place you can put strong stuff up is bayimg.com

This is an image-hosting service from the folks who set up pirate bay and I'm pretty sure they mean what they say when they say:

bayimg.com is a place where you can host all your images. We do not censor them. We believe in freedom of speech, it's of utter importance to us. As long as your pictures are legal they will be hosted here, but we reserve the right to remove images due to technical reasons though. If something crashes here, you better have a backup yourself - hopefully that won't happen. Usually we know what we're doing.

About the only negative thing they have to say is that they'd really rather prefer it if no porn was hosted on their service - they figure there are enough other places that do that.

The only downside - depending on what frills you feel you need - is that it really is DIY in terms of keeping track of the urls for your images. I've put stuff up there in the past, and kept a text-file with all of the urls in it so that I could get back to the image if I wanted to.

It is deemed “hate” - anti-semitism - to compare any genocide or potential genocide to the Holocaust.

It is considered racist to compare Obama to Hitler or the DNC to Nazis. As we discovered, it is fine to compare Republicans to Nazis and Bush to Hitler.

I’ve done several graphics critical of obamacare in the last year and had no objections from PB.

Photobucket is already obsolete, it is just that most people don’t know it. They will disappear soon enough though. Get yourself your own personal cloud. Do what you want with it. You don’t need them.

Since there is anti-government and anti-obama stuff on PhotoBucket, yours must have been really bad.

I posted a poster showing a b&w image of a nazi with a gun to the head of a Jew and under it it said, UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE HEADSHOT: Any government that can give you healthcare can give you deathcare. Something or other like that. I got an email from them yesterday. I will elaborate more on it on my blog. Evidently opposing universal healthcare is now hate speech.
