    I could be wrong but I don't think we'll get Photobucket style hostage takers out of this. I do think they will have to monetize Flickr to a larger extent to recoup their investment. That may or may not involve higher fees for participation but I don't think they'll go the crazy with it after the PB response. Or at least I hope so.

    One might think business people learn from others' mistakes. But in the end, all that matters is money. They can't make business when they are losing money. I hope there will be a customer-friendly result in the end, though.

    I don't have a problem with SmugMug buying Flickr. I recently stated posting to 500px, but I am not happy with that. I'm happy with Flickr, and I doubt SmugMug will make any large changes as they know they will alienate their user base.

    I immediately distrust it.

    And I have no idea what it is.

    I'm even scared to Google it!

    Soon we won't need Darkrooms as the whole planet will be Dark.
    +1, "Oath" is a shockingly bad name, Orwellian overtones.
