Regardless, nothing wrong, ethically or according to the law, was done by them. And if nothing wrong was done by the site, why were they so quick to shut things down?
Because the mere appearance of improproiety is just as bad, and often worse, than impropriety itself. Photobucket and Livejournal really don't care about their users, the users are just paychecks to them. They won't ever go to bat for anyone because a lawsuit, even when they're in the right, would just cost too much money.
