YouTube Gets Bombed With Porn

May 20, 2009 4:45 PM PST
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — Today is porn day.

That is the mantra for an organized group of users from 4Chan.org, a hacker’s site, and EBaumsWorld.com, a rival tube site, who uploaded en masse a collection of video clips of explicit, adult content in an attempt to overwhelm the search results.

YouTube has been working fast to remove the video clips for violations of the site's terms of use, but there are handfuls of porn videos posted as recent as mid-day Wednesday.

Many of the porn videos also still are showing up in searches and their explicit thumbnails remain in plain view for surfers to see.
