Photobucket censored my cartoon

I've been using Photobucket for all my internet image needs for over two years. I have almost 300 images stored on it, mostly for my blogs. Even though Flickr is better, I've stuck with Photobucket because that's what I used first. I'm used to it and I've never had any problems with it. Until now.

I started a web comic a little while ago, and naturally I've been using Photobucket to put up the images. Imagine my surprise yesterday when instead of my most recent comic, I saw this:
violation
Apparently, my cartoon is too obscene for Photobucket.

Here, you be the judge. This is the "offending" image:

I don't get what would be "obscene" about a pair of line-drawn, cartoon boobs anyway, but the black bar was part of the original image. I want to keep the web comic "PG," and I think it's actually funnier with the boobs blacked out.

I find it hard to believe that there's a human being prudish enough to ban that comic. If there is, what kind of wankers does Photobucket have working for it? If some sort of bot found it, well, what kind of wanker would program it so poorly?

Either way, Photobucket = a bunch of wankers.
