YouTube flooded with porn

Hello? Is anyone still reading? Come back

YouTube has been hit with an avalanche of smut, uploaded by users of various messageboards apparently protesting at the site's removal of music videos.

The video site has a zero-tolerance to nudity on the site - footage of doctors demonstrating breast examinations have famously been removed in the past, while footage of Saddam Hussein's death by hanging is still available. The site also removes footage when requested to do so by copyright holders.

YouTube's moderators had a difficult time removing the videos because many were tagged with names of children's entertainers and stars like Hannah Montana and the Jonas Brothers.

At the time of writing, YouTube seems to have done a pretty good job of clearing things up, but we bow before your superior smut searching skills. ®
