I emailed their customer service asking how exactly they considered it violated their terms of service, seeing as it was just a pic of a frumpy middle aged tourist leaning up against an exhibit in an Amsterdam museum.
The reply I received was less than helpful.
If anyone has any idea why the photobucket might have objected to the pic, let me know. The pic can be viewed here.
I emailed them again saying I didn't find the response helpful and could they be more specific but I never heard from them again. What's strange is that I actually had two of the identical pics uploaded, one bigger than the other (the pic that is) and they removed the bigger one but left the smaller one alone.We continuously monitor the content on our site. When we find images that violate our Terms of Service, we either remove the images or ban the account if the account is full of images that violate our TOS.
Photobucket reserves the right at all times to terminate your account, and delete any and all Content, in whole or in part, for any reason including without limitation violations of this Section, or of any part of this
We consider the photo you reference as a violation of our Terms of Service and therefore removed it from our website.
Their email suggests that once they find one such pic - presumably in a random search - they do check the rest of the pics in an account. So maybe it was just the size they had a problem with?
By the way, there are other - dare I say even better - things to see in Amsterdam, you know.
Of course there are! Lots of barges for a start!Maria wrote:By the way, there are other - dare I say even better - things to see in Amsterdam, you know.
OTOH, maybe I'm just a saddo after all....
A little more seriously, (but not too seriously) the last time I was in Amsterdam was en famille, to celebrate my parents' golden wedding anniversary. We were drinking a fine champagne, at just the moment (,unbeknown to us,) JPII was croaking his last.
Amsterdam is a fine city, with lots to see, and a comfortable culture too. If you are going in April, the bulb fields should be in full bloom. Enjoy your trip!
There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:
1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?
