How do you feel about this?

So, we are no longer allowed to use PB for 3rd party hosting. That's been a given for some time now.
But now, they've put a cap on the # of pics we are allowed to store.
My account currently has less than 2.5MB of data used and tells me I'm at 65% of my storage capacity.
BUT, they state I'm over the total allowed for alloted storage based on their total allowed # of photos of 250. This used to be 1000.
I currently have over 1300 photos on their site, but less than 2.5GB of total usage. So I'm over the limit, but they are letting it go as I'm an older user.
If I want to upload new pics, I'll need to delete enough pics to meet their new criteria. This means I'll need to delete over 1100 pics.
Think what this will do to all the threads I've added info in to help others who are just starting out.
Most of my DIY threads will be comprised of text with non-existent reference pics.

There's not much us small users are able to do about this, but maybe some of you reading this will find a way to do something about it.
