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.
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.
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.
I use http://tinypic.com/ for anything I want to upload and post/link here
Photobucket I just used for general pics....
What other sites host photo’s you can link to like Photobucket?
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.
tinypic deleted some of the Obama stuff I had posted on my FR homepage.
photobucket got a waiver too?
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.
...they told me it was offensive, but they still allowed other people to upload pics of Serrano's 'Piss Christ.'
I like that picture!!!
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.
