hachi: Considering all the fees they lump on the users, along with the ads, I don't understand why people still use it. Charging for uploading photos which are basically free for them to host is rediculious. It's very clearly a "we charge because we can" thing.


I completely agree, but then again they are a business - they are existing to make money for their shareholders, and do so from any means as they see fit.

I agree, but there's a difference between making money and gouging money.
