‘Hannah Montana’ Porn Leaves Youtube Technicians Working Around the Clock

 

In what is been suspected as a coordinated attack by the infamous 4Chan hackers, popular video sharing site Youtube has been flooded with what could amount to thousands of porn videos and clips containing graphic sexual content.

Over 20 hours of video content is uploaded onto Youtube every minute and technical staff are said to be working around the clock trying to remove any unsuitable content for the site.

The videos were apparently uploaded under the guise of clips containing clips of Hannah Montana and the Jonas Brothers. It may take considerable time to find and remove all the offensive clips according to Youtube.

  Why just not allow porn?  
 
Then just only display it in the searches if you say you are over 18 and also check that you want it in your searches.

Its stupid to think you can prevent underage people from accessing porn on the internet. You might as well try playing tic-tac-toe against yourself! The very thought is an act of futility.

  finally...  
 
I was wondering how long it was going to take before someone exploited this weakness in the system.

I just feel bad for some poor kid that is going to type in Hannah Montana and get a face full of man-sausage.

Why don't they just put hardcore she-male porn onto the disney webpage?

Obviously because its not the kind of website they want to run. Same thing for Youtube.

I don't think its so much for "protecting the children" they just don't want to be a porn site.

Ok I can see where you are coming from. But google images offers links to porn directly off your searches. It all depends on what filters you have applied.

I just find it unusual that they filter videos but do not filter pictures??? Since they are the same company now and such.

Ex: Go to google and turn off your filters in your prefs and click on the images link. Type something vulgar like "blowjob" or whatever. You will get billions of pictures of people in various sexual scenarios.

Now try the same thing on the video site and it doesnt work. Doesnt make sense really... Why offer the pictures of hardcore porn but not the videos as well?

The only reason I can think of is just because google/youtube is hosting the videos and is not hosting the images. Other than that I see no reason to prevent their upload.

Maybe having the ability to have porn would literally overload their servers. Or it might just be that they dont want to have to get involved in the business of trying to filter out child porn and things like this.

Anyhow those are the only reasons I can think of. But from a business perspective it would definitely bring a lot more people to your site!

We can all take a lesson from Avenue Q, The Musical...

The Internet is for porn.

Which is worse for children: Hannah Montana and Jonas Brothers or porn?

At least with porn the kids don't feel compelled to buy a Ron Jeremy backpack.

Thats because google is a search engine and they want to deliver the content you are searching for, thus they allow it with a seperate system.

Youtube on the other hand, does NOT want porn on their site, and says so in their TOCs.

Therefore, regardless that I agree that you can't sheild kids from everything, the site has the right to say no, no porn and people should respect that.

This has been going on for quite a while. I noticed it last month when looking for the end scene in boogie nights to send to my friend as a joke.

  hmm  
 
I heard it was actually ebaumsworld that was behind the attack.

That's a separate issue, and up to Google/Youtube to decide.

This issue is simply that porn is being posted labeled as a children's TV clip.

  Wow.  
 
I just checked YouTube and it is DOWN! Just a white page when you enter the URL. 4Chan wins again.

I heard something similar to that recently when I was reading through the Ebaums forums. They were talking about this months ahead of time, I figured it was just stupid rambling...

Youtube would quickly become a porn site if they accepted this type of content. They would be flooded with it.

They are trying to target audiences, businesses and media as a main source for their material. They don't want to tarnish their image with content some might find extremely objectionable. Filters or not, it's not something they want to be known for.

I wouldn't mind some porn on there but I understand others might.

hahahahahha it's still hilarious when people say it.

btw kross anonib has been crap since it was sold last year. the real good ones that are left aren't even on regular internet protocol, but networks like TOR. That is where the real depravity lies. Makes the internet interesting again at least.
