It's not so much the views, but the work that went into uploading all of the photos, creating the albums and writing the caption. Since I have roughly 1,800 images there, they are going to delete almost half of it, if I don't cough up $50. It's almost the definition of extortion.

Now, SmugMug owns Flickr, and they do have the best package for a real portfolio site, which I've been wanting, BUT.....should I reward extortion with more business?

WRT the space, who cares about the space? I don't put anything but low-res images up there. I'm not using anything like 1TB. I think they would have been a lot more reasonable, had they elected to limit the amount of space, or grandfather existing users. That's where they crossed the line from a decision to change a business model to extortion.

My RP stuff is here.

Link to my Flickr Albums. Lots of Steam Railroad stuff there from all over the US.
