    Definition of Debacle

    ​Don't do much riding or forum stuff for that matter. One thing that stands out, every time I see this, I think of incompetence and betrayal. Have no idea if this 'mover & shaker' is still employed or will ever be again. Suspect this will make it in the textbooks of the future. Likely towards the beginning of the chapter on 'Bad business decisions'. Just my thought every time I see this image:
    ...
    Yes, now we see an image of a TW (9/7/2017) Soon we will see an image of incompetence and customer betrayal.

    I try not to really hate anything anymore, but that Photobucket image is getting close to pushing me over the line. So many good and/or informative photos have been replaced with that terrible thing.

    Nope - no-one on the forum can see them unless the original poster pays the ransom ....

    Can folks that bought into the scam called Photobucket at least get their own pictures back? Or are they being held hostage?

    The tw200forum.com makes for a pretty good photo hosting site. My historical pictures posted directly from my camera here remain accessible and linkable to other sites and e-mails.
