Photobucket Deletes Pictures of Babies, Citing Nudity, in Error

Have Your Pictures Ever Been Censored?

Photobucket has its tail between its legs today after pulling some pictures of babies in diapers, saying that they violated the terms of service — because they depicted nudity!

Member Good Mama Diapers had posted pictures of the offending babies in diapers as part of a contest and then noticed they were all gone. A reporter at CNET News emailed Photobucket to ask what the deal was, and about two hours later, Photobucket admitted to their error and upgraded Good Mama Diapers to a pro account.

I guess Photobucket doesn't know nudity when it sees it! I don't think I've had any photos pulled from MySpace, Picasa, or any other photo sites I've used, but I'm positive they pull things all the time just to be cautious. Has this ever happened to you? It might if some of you posted your Number 1s!

Never happened to me online. But I have had a picture pulled at a theme park - my husband and I kissed (cute and innocent, I swear!) on a Disneyworld ride. When we walked through the picture booth, we noticed a piece of cardboard over the screen that would have had us on it. I felt a little bad, but hey, no one told us it wasn't allowed!

Myspace deleted a picture of my 1 year old with no diaper on, from the side. No nipple, no privates no bum. Just her looking at me and a chubby thigh. They deleted it. Pissed me off.

Very glad I don't use any public picture hosting services. Gallery never tells me what I can and cannot upload :)

This is sort of different, but when I was 19 I tried getting some film from a party developed at Wal-Mart and they didn't give me any of the ones of me and my girlfriends kissing each other (yeah..nevermind..) Apparently they won't develop pictures like that, or someone kept them..
