I think that ImageShack still imposes bandwidth limits and other restraints. I can't see why anyone would use it over another service like imgur.

Depends on what you use them for. Services like ImageShack and Photobucket keep your images around, while (last time I checked, which is admittedly about a year ago) Imgur's FAQ says something about deleting old images that haven't seen any traffic for a certain timespan (at least 3 months, IIRC).

Imgur has some restrictions as well. It's their (Imageshack's) "view image" pages that are horrible.

Any host is going to have restrictions, but Imgur will not take your image down for bandwidth reasons.
