Flickr vs photobucket? Other options?

I have been using and paying for a Photobucket account but have now stopped. They started spamming me with unwelcome religious oriented emails. So I unsubscribed to their emails. But they kept spamming me. I unsubscribed again. The spam kept coming. So I have stopped paying for a photobucket account that allowed for more space and more uploads at a time (that I had been using wildlife photos on discussion boards)

So now I need a different service. Are there Flickr users here? Do you have any concers about their services? Are here better ones?

My needs are limited. I don't need image editing. Mainly I want a site to use to post wildlife photos on discussion boards.

I use PBase and have never had a problem with them.

I currently use Flickr but have considerable unhappiness with the notes field (albums) which I use a lot (but which most people don't). Otherwise, I have no complaints about Flickr. Another option you might consider is Ipernity which I've looked into a bit as an alternative to Flickr.
