E-bay and photobucket

Don't know if this is in the right place so feel free to move it if needed.
A small side effect of the trial that some people may not be aware. When I am on e-bay that if someone has hosted images externally you may end up with a page with no images. I am on the family profile and have noticed a few listings that are hosted on photobucket that refuse to load. (I am sure that restriction will apply to other hosting sites as well) (E-bay ref number 200229541085 is an example)

If you click on the image you get the restricted message, but I have had a similair fault which was a connection problem.

Re: E-bay and photobucket

I wonder if there's mileage in Aladdin developing a method for replacing images from suspect sites with a placeholder image?
It would seem to me that the Aladdin system currently just blocks the image.  If they could substitute a identifiable "this image has been blocked" image in it's place then it's less likely to cause support calls.

Aladdin response:
We have looked at your example and understood the scenario.
We will definitely look in to add an image replacing mechanism in the upcoming version.
I have already have this request sent to our product management.
Cheers,
