Question Probably biggest noob question ever? Photobucket related

New to the forum and many times in threads I get that photobucket "3rd party hosting" (attached) message on most pictures.

I followed the link at the bottom of the image, and it seems like I have to pay for photobucket in order to view these pictures?

Am I completely doing something wrong? I really want to follow and view some of these threads, but without being able to see most pictures it's kinda useless.

Any help or direction on how I can fix this would be great. Thanks!

Photo bucket screwed the forum world when they changed how they provide hosting services. You'll find this in every forum you go to.

So unless you pay for it, there is no way around it?

Cock S u c k e r s teying to cash in & force the general public to pay fees in case free members want to save their pictures stored on their server

I use imgur - it's free. There are a few links beside the pictures you upload - one in particular is designed for message board posts.

Well someone's got to pay for it at the end of the day right? With the billions of images hosted on millions of websites...
