Photobucket has deleted my pictures & images Sorry about that folks

Sorry about the missing pictures.
I will have to type up ALL my Lexigram graphics as just text. So many images have been deleted by Photofucket.
They even deleted them from ALL my blogs on the internet.
Please bear with me.
It will take quite awhile to one finger hunt and peck type them up as text.
All pictures and images I had posted for over 12 years are gone unless I pay Photobucket's ransom fee.
Photobucket now wants paid $399.99 a year to let me show any pictures. http://www.ghacks.net/2017/06/30/photobucket-now-charges-399-for-third-party-hosted -images/

Lexx, I'm terribly sorry.
$399 per yr sounds incredibly high.
I remember when online services were
both free and cheap. Before our dollar
meant so little. Oh my, I can't believe
the current state of economy in the USA.
Sorry I went off topic.
Can you find a friend to share an account
Or is that forbidden? I'm clueless.
I've not had any paid services in years.

Even if it were not $399.99 year; I can never trust them again.
When would the next ransom demand come?
And that $399.99 a year; even without increases in fees; becomes $4,799.88 in 12 years!
12 years is the approximate amount of time I had been using them for FREE.
I would not have paid anyone that kind of money for such hosting. And not going to now either.
It was nice when free; but not worth it otherwise.
I would never have posted any pictures had I known this could happen.

Looking into other options if any.
I have deleted all my library in Photobucket.
Weird thing I noticed though;
I see they keep a deleted archive.
Now why the heck are they doing that? Something sounds wrong about that.

I think it sounds fishy indeed.
They shouldn't have indefinite rights
to your images. Especially when it
was free service. Can you locate the TOS
from when you established your account
there, Lexx?

That was over 12 years ago.
Now and back then; they said once any picture is deleted; that you can never get it back ever.
Then I discover they have right now; all the pictures I ever deleted in a file I canot access.
WHY ARE THEY KEEPING MY IMAGE/PICTURE INKS???????
Also there use to be a way to totally close out one's Photobucket account. That feature has recently vanished!

That is what I think too!
Something creepy about Photofucket.

AND GET THIS!....
Every other day or so they keep e-mailing me to upgrade my account!
WTF???????

They also keep sending e-mails about prints and posters and such.
This is a weird reply I got from "them"
that did not answer my questions:

Lexx, I see a robot replied to you.
Do they offer human telephone support?
I know that's rare anymore.

Maybe you can ask them why they are
keeping your property. Maybe tell
them they are violating your rights
to your property and this is theft.


**pls ignore my smiley above on
my replies. I forgot to switch the
defaults*

Sending (((hugs))) your way, Lexx.

MoonMystic thank you for the hugs
Yes they have a phone and fax.
I highly doubt I can get through to them as this has affected millions.
I am too stressed about it all at the moment to talk to some creep giving lip service and no real answers.
I doubt they care even a little.
I have also been quite ill; yesterday vomiting and nearly passing out. No idea why; except maybe the heat?
Still feel badly today but wanted to catch up here and elsewhere whilst I am able.
I hate getting behind.
