Some of you might rememebr earlier this year when Photobucket tried to get all its users to pay to allow hotlinking on websites and forums pictures from Photobucket. If you didn't pay the money (USD 400 if I recall correctly), your ictures were replaced with a message: "PLEASE UPDATE YOUR ACCOUNT TO ENABLE 3RD PARTY HOSTING". I doubt many people paid the ransom.

Anyway, it seems some bright spark has found a fix for this.

If you use Firefox you can install an Add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/photobucket-fix/?src=api

And there is an Extension for Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/photobucket-hotlink-fix/kegnjbncdcliihbemealioapbifiaedg
