Unfortunately, the reports are that their revenue doubled and I would imagine their bandwidth requirements went down at the same time. It looks like a win for them and a lose for everyone else.

They put a lot of people in a hostage situation.  Not a big shock that some had no choice but to pay the ransom.  What will be shocking is if they pay again next year after they've had time to find a better run, more trustworthy company.  It's hard to know who is trustworthy, but PhotoBucket has proven they are not.
