So after seeing people make posts on this one thread started about a couple guys (perhaps from Libya) who were pretty much ripped in half with their gory torsos shown in a picture, I also posted a few videos from Youtube displaying Libyan military snipers taking down their own citizens.

Now after observing and refreshing the page for updates on the thread not too long ago, that page was no longer available. Instead, what appeared on the screen was this message:



Is this something that ATS has done to block out webpages, or is this the act of a government security monitoring what gets shown and shared online?

That screen appears when pages are removed by the ATS staff. The reasons for doing so are varied, but a review of the ATS Terms And Conditions Of Use will always hold the explanation of "why?".

It was obvious that the thread with the pictures of the people torn in half was going to be 404'd. There was just a link to a gore website with a picture of 2 middle-eastern men ripped in half... There was no indication that it had anything to do with the Libyan riots and certainly had no place on this website.

I looked at the picture and wish I hadn't for obvious reasons.

I totally agree with you. I saw no point in that sort of posting which had nothing to do with the conflict going on in Libya. Well, it couldn't be proven in any case. But if the story was covered in the news, then at least without the pictures and by using only the story, would have created a justification for it not to be 404'd?

Without the picture and a story reported by the news or even a blog or facebook then I see no reason as to why it would have been 404'd.

There is just no room on this site for such images and like you highlighted in the T&C gore and mutilation photos are not welcome on ATS.
