Web guerrilla wants to flood YouTube with porn


translate.google.com

Who is on Wednesday, 6 January, on YouTube in search of cute animal videos and massive makes in drug-related children, will meet with porn. This is the infamous plan of Web vandals from 4chan. As early as May 2009 they want the video portal with pornographic videos and try to flood it, the self-cleaning mechanisms to overload. At least for one day to give it to YouTube then see masses of adult films - the otherwise mature now is to disappear behind a veil of naked flesh. ...

The article title and text has been translated via Google Translate, since I do not speak German. Der Spiegel is a magazine that has been around since 1947 according to Wikipedia, so I'm assuming the website is a credible source.

What I find strangely odd about this is the fact that a news agency is giving this any attention at all. 4chan has been known to raid sites before, and scoundrels uploading porn to YouTube is nothing new. What makes this instance any different? Is the writer of the article ignorant about 4chan's usual activities and thinks this is something special, or will 4chan actually have some sort of impact tomorrow? Unless this is a coordinated event akin to when Marblecake made moot the #1 person on TIME, I don't see how this event will be any different from the others.

www.washingtonpost.com...

Now the Washington Post? This is getting a bit odd. I searched how many articles they've done on 4chan in the past:

www.washingtonpost.com...

There are four. Two of them are about MacRumors on 1/6/09, and the other two are the TIME 100 (4/21/09) and this one. These are these only four articles they have ever written about 4chan. What makes them think this will mean anything? 4chan has done this type of thing hundreds of times in the past, so why does this time deserve any mention?

From what I understand, 4chan is doing this because the account of Lukeywes1234 was suspended on YouTube. He was suspended because of a mass amount of people from 4chan were subscribing to him. I don't know why they chose Lukeywes1234, but 4chan is known for being random, so there may not be a reason. I await to see what happens tomorrow, although I doubt it'll be anything out of the ordinary.

Yup I think this is 4chan being used to push the agenda of internet censorship and regulation.

It honestly wouldn't surprise me, but what is tomorrow going to amount to? Let's give 4chan a surplus, and let's say 100 posters each upload 10 porn videos and make them public on the 6th. That's 1,000 porn videos. Considering that thousands of porn videos already get uploaded to YouTube and deleted constantly, what difference is this going to make?

4chan is everything -- good and bad. Protests on Scientology were big, but they do many more things than that.

Also, I will update my opening post with article links as I find them. Some of them are in different languages.

If they regulate the internet in anyway all of the angry neckbeards will destroy everything. Trust me, whoever thinks they are manipulating 4chan will always end up with poo on their face.

I don't know. Look at all the freedoms taken away from us in the past 10 years. If that won't get the masses angry, will regulating the Internet do it? Getting rid of it would, but keeping it alive and regulating it is a whole different story. What if they made the Internet both regulated and completely free/drastic price reduction? People may stay calm then.

You don't # with 4chan or the Anon. I personally love 4chan even though I'm not a member, they keep things interesting. I honestly believe 4chan could win a war against most small nations in the world in a matter of hours.

Why attack youtube though?
I mean, do people really even watch most of the stupid crap up there?
Don't get me wrong, a bunch of my friends have videos for their bands up there, and there is tons and tons of cool stuff, but honestly...no one f'n cares about most of the stuff up there...um...right?
Do we really care about people's home videos of...oh...let's say, for example... some stupid 18 year old chick and her best friend singing, quite off-key, in the back seat of a moving car and filming it with their camera phone?
Why would we even care about stuff like that?
Y'know...I just think I figured out why 4chan would launch an attack on youtube...because not everyone needs their 15 minutes of pointless fame!

Heh, yeah.
A whole 'wargames' scenario.
I'm wondering just how powerful they really are.
I'd like to see them pool their resources and perhaps crack open some of the conspiracies we debate up on here.
I'm sure that there's some digital proof of lizard people or alien abductions or stuff like that somewhere...yes?

The solution to the internet regulation debate is to have a "private" internet that has rules and a "public" internet that is a free for all. People can go to the public internet for smut, extremist political views, and other things your mommy does not want you watching.

I for one think the "private" internet can catch on and live side by side with the public internet. People will visit the public internet to enjoy the open air carnival the public internet will be. People will also visit the private internet because that is where reputable businesses will post their websites and engage in e-commerce.

Firstly I think this would be slightly counter productive is this action takes place , but the mere threat of it does bring awareness and to me that has to be the ultimate goal.
We are all blinded from the moment of birth through censorship and other forms of society's whim to hide things from each other.
It is however not always a bad thing , one man's little lie can be anothers head screwing truth.

Well it'll only be a matter of time before the private internet is invaded by 4Chan-esque people and made to look like the public internet. I can see them doing this though, simply because they'll be able apply a charge for both the public and private internet.

You are right in that there will never be a 100% safe internet. However, you can make it difficult for this guy to go on the attack. For example, the private internet may charge money for doing things like sending large amounts of data out of a pre-paid account. If this guy tries to attack a site by sending posting large numbers of porn clips to a site, he will either quickly exhaust his account and/or spend a lot of money. the private internet may also have registration requirements which may make it difficult to enter the private internet anonymously.

Right now, as it stands, it is virtually free to try and launch an attack on a site. Furthermore, one can do so relatively anonymously with a low risk of getting caught.

I think there should be more than 2 levels of Internet. There should obviously be a free Internet where minimal rules are enforced (basically what we have now, only with less corporations and censoring), and there should be other types that would require a small payment but provide many services. Places like WalMart and other busy places could have a custom Internet inside their stores. Fast food places could have specialized Internet for the kids. Malls, fairs, etc., could have their own Internet that describes everything in the area.

Then again, that might be taking it too far. If there's so much Internet, people might not want to leave.

I'm mostly a massive /p/tard but when I wonder to the b area there's always someone trying to get the chan to raid something. Very rarely does it get any support and most common responses are gtfo and not your personal army. Youtube as a target has been suggested many times but as far as I know noone got in on the action.

That's not a surplus. That's a very low estimate. I'd multiply that by 10 and still call it a bit low.

According to information I have heard, people from 4chan plan on carrying it out at 4pm EST tomorrow. Again, I doubt much will happen, but at least there isn't that much time left.
