I finally got around to adding my banned YouTube video 10 Erotic Movies to my Vimeo account. Check it out and marvel at the fact that after 21,442 hits, YouTube banned this for inappropriate content:
«a href=“https://vimeo.com/6740722" target="_blank” rel=“noopener noreferrer”>http://vimeo.com/6740722>
Despite this, I’m continuing to post the odd video to YouTube, since that platform has a larger and more active user base than Vimeo. My most recent YouTube posting is Shoreditch Shredding Machine Massacre:
«a href=“https://youtu.be/UJELyF3yrSs" target="_blank” rel=“noopener noreferrer”>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJELyF3yrSs>
But if the countdown from 10 to 1 in 10 Erotic Movies is inappropriate for YouTube, then we really do need to concentrate on building our own sites well away from corporately owned Web 2.o franchises, in order to avoid such blatantly stupid censorshit. The YouTube user base has a reputation for running on a low level of collective intelligence, but my feeling is this simply reflects the way the site is managed.
I’m not a member of YouPorn, RedTube or PornTube or indeed any ‘adult orientated’ Web 2.o site. This is in part because it would be genuinely inappropriate to upload works of mine such as 10 Erotic Movies to platforms dedicated to the free sharing and distribution of hardcore pornography. However, it seems to me that YouTube could resolve some of the issues it has around inappropriate content by plugging YouPorn – so that those searching for or wanting to post hardcore pornography on YouTube went elsewhere. Doing this would demonstrate that those managing YouTube have matured a little, and until the censorship crazy zealots running this platform learn to behave a little bit more reasonably, they can hardly expect a broad swathe of their members to use their ‘service’ in a sensible manner.
And while you’re at it don’t forget to check – www.stewarthomesociety.org – you know it makes (no) sense!

Yeah and (Sit On My) Facebook should have links to Fuckbook and Fleshbook so that hapless posters of status updates such as ‘God I’m really depressed today’ don’t have to put up with comments from people who are basically looking to leverage the Social Networking revolution to increase the length and girth of their orgasms. Speaking of which, this topic is just pure horny

The pair of you are supposed to be helping me monetise the Big Blogger Flat blog, and if you both insist on sitting around all day watching internet porn we’ll never get anywhere with that!

I’m not just watching internet porn, I’m doing research… Curious because it now seems much harder to find genuinely amateur on PornTube, I hadn’t looked it it for several years…. Seems to be pros trying to big up their pay for services, which ain’t so good coz watching that pro shit gives some people strange ideas about sex… But I can’t even be bothered to watch this shit, I’m just inerested in seeing what’s goin’ down with these clowns… It gets really boring really fast… I’d much rather watch vids of me walking around Sao Paolo, but I gotta sort out an NTSC playback before I can do that… And the Big Blogger Flat blog is down, so I can’t do sweet FA on that!

Vimeo is a groove sensation!

Incidentally, sort out the quality of your videos Trip, it’s worse than watching your ropey homemade porn vids. Although big clunky square pixels turn me on!
Download SUPER video converter for free – a few key settings and you’ll be away, super clear video so that people used to wanking to pristine HD vids can get off or your stuff as well as me 😉

Hey trippy, get in touch. Me and you could make the movie to end all movies…

Not without me making up the third party in a threesome buster!

What irks me is the amount of utterly pointless crap on YouTube that should be taken down simply because it’s offensively bad, both in terms of content and quality. Meanwhile, the policing of platform like YouTube, MySpace, etc., is conducted arbitrarily at best, and usually without any research into the content.
Still, you’ve reminded me that I’m long overdue to resume work on my A-Z of Internet porn project, (and am also long overdue to update my non-2.0 website)….

Google is the new Coca-Cola… Remember Google own YouTube!

Do Youtube have some kind of appeals process for when they kick off a video ? I couldn’t find anyway of contacting them, you just find a note “unsuitable content” and the video is turned off. No discussion bunch of despots ..

Stewart, you were always my favorite porn star. I especially like the one with the donkey, the capuchin monkey, and the nun.

if you want to see low levels of collective intelligence in a “knowledge bank”, check out yahoo answers. the wisdom of teenagers, it’s amazing.

Wolfgang YouTube have no appeals process as far as I can tell, best thing is just to open an account with Vimeo or someone else and rehost it… Only took me more than a year to do it with mine… But check the vid, really what is ‘inappropriate’ about a countdown in numberals from 10 to 1? Pathetic! And also be great if you could put yours back online somewhere else, and anyone else whose had a stupid YouTube ban, I’ve heard about lots. It would be good to be able to see a lot of this material…
And Tom, don’t let everyone know or they’ll all be looking for where i secretly upload my home porn videos (don’t say RapidShare) for my friends to download and enjoy… No YouPorn for me
Comment by Tripped On Time on 2009-09-27 09:56:32 +0000
Please send me links to the uploader services hosting your dirty sex videos… this secret distribution makes them so much more enticing than merely placing them on PornTube!

Tripped On Time, we just pass them round at the back of the class

I saw this before they pulled it. It looks to me like you’ve made some cuts?
Comment by Christopher Nosnibor on 2009-09-28 14:50:04 +0000
“The stuff of which cuts are made…”
Comment by Old Rope on 2009-09-28 15:06:19 +0000
I prefer the extended director’s cut, in which Trip adds a previously unseen half hour which adds little to the plot but gives and interesting insight into what he had in mind for the work.
The director’s commentary, however, I found needless and added little to my viewing. Though it WAS interesting to learn that the number 4 was played by the director’s cousin.

But who is number one?
Comment by Justin on 2009-09-28 18:49:14 +0000
He is indeed a free man and not a number
Comment by Old Rope on 2009-09-28 18:57:59 +0000
You’ll always be my number one Trip 😉

All this makes me question the acute differences between Left Communism and Libertarian Communism. Any thoughts?
Comment by Old Rope on 2009-10-04 10:18:23 +0000
And what of Librarian Communism…?
Comment by mistertrippy on 2009-10-04 13:04:07 +0000
Oh I think there is a lot of overlap between libertarian communism and left communism in its councilists forms, but a lot less between Bordiguism and libertarian communism, which means if you are trying to snythesise the best of the various left communist strands and you start close to libertarian communism, you’ll move further away, but if you start with positions closer to “Italian” left communism, they you’ll move closer to it…..

In related You Tube censorship/conspiracy I’ve been trying to upload a video…it gets about a third of the way then it fails and the internet turns itself off. What the fuck is going on? I tried Vimeo also with exactly the same outcome. The video in question contains ‘copyrighted material’ as they say is this having some kind of mystical effect when it’s uploading and giving me a slap on the back of the leg like I’m some naughty little child?
