Recently, I got everybody’s favorite email from Flickr saying my free space on my photoroll or whatever was running out. Not wanting to pay to store my Ravelry photos and since photobucket doesn’t work with Firefox 3 (yet), I went in search of another free photo hosting site. After a goodly amount of searching, I found WebShots, which seemed pretty nice – free unlimited storage, and they even have a desktop client to view and upload your photos. I’d only posted a few images there so far, but today I got a puzzling email from them:

Dear Rachel,

Below is the list of photos and/or videos we removed:

They were all knitting pictures, except for two screenshots, one of my Stitches schedule and one of a webgame so I could prove my score to someone (LOL). So…err…WHAT?

I’m rather irritated. I’m also at work and probably shouldn’t be posting, but whatever.

If you want to see knitting pics, check out the finished legwarmer I was test knitting on my rav page. I’m not going to bother putting them here atm.
