So irritated by ImageShack

Okay I admit to having neglected my blog lately. (Not too much, though. Only half a year. No big deal, huh? ;) ) But it's just not nice to come back and found that ImageShack has made me look like a criminal!

You might have noticed that some images on my blog were replaced by IS's notice saying 'This domain violates ImageShack's ToS.' Well, I checked ImageShack® - Rules and, in short, it says you must not upload anything that 'can be construed as porn, copyrighted material, harassment, or spam.' So? My images are not those at all! The ones that I.S. yanked out of the blog were my scrapbooking layouts which are my own, created with material bought or given with permission from designers. There's absolutely nothing offensive or abusive about them.

What irritates and confuses me the most is the fact that most of the layouts and even some scrapbooking previews and ads are still showing. Why??? There's nothing different between the ones IS refused to host and the ones allowed to stay. How would I know then if the next one would be alright by IS or not?

I guess it's time to move on then. Sorry about the rant, just have to take it out of my system. I'll switch to other file hosting site from now on. And (fingers crossed!) hopefully I'll be back to blogging regularly very soon!


Edited to add: Now some of those 'This domain violates ImageShack's ToS' notices are gone again. Ugh! I just don't get it!
