I have just found out that Photobucket has unblocked all of my photos posted on LPF before June 2017. LPF member Chloderic had rep'd me for a Sticky thread on 589/593.5 pics. I thought why would he rep me when the pics are being blocked. I checked and all of the photos are visible. I checked a few other real old posts of mine and the pics are visible. I will still never use Photobucket again, but at least they have made all my old photos available on LPF again
That would truly be something. But, considering how they've acted in these past months, I doubt it. I would think the more valuable they think the photos are, the more ransom they would demand to get them back. Greed is not good. It's just greed.
