A fly in the ointment! I did not know this, now I do!

The second I read this I deleted ALL my images from PhotoBucket. I, personally, won't be used like that. I will only upload images to pbase, where they do not abuse one's intellectual property, one hopes! I read their small print, never thought of it before, and they only use the right to use images for their own advertising, I can live with that. I have no doubt that pictures are used illegally, there is bugger all that can realistically be done there, but I won't just give them away willingly.
But Photobucket.....

getting worse than a woman

Changed name again t match Twitter.
Ows zat?

Changed name

Changed name from flying dog to fox to match my pbase name.
Think the right thing t do.

Found following

Now found out in time how it works, well, how it tells me things.
Think I will stick to pbase for most things, esp pix.
Cant even remember how to get pix on blogger, was it photobucket or direct. Can Google pilfer ones work like facebook and Twitter.
Anyway, I hope the two people I am following dont mind me following. The local or not so local pain in the neck.


Just trying this on my phone.
No idea what I am doing, lol.
Nor where this will end up.
