In case the gremlins get at the text ...

Saw something unexpected while watching a BBC news program, today. In the crawl across the bottom of the screen, I saw “Pornhub deletes all user-uploaded videos amid legality row,” or something very close to that. I literally did a double take, and the first things I heard in my head were “Wait. What? Back up, back up.”

Wow, so the world has indeed changed in the last few years? I’m pretty sure you could have, five years ago, published a cure for all cancers on a porn website, and the respectable news outlets wouldn’t have found it for quite a while. But, now? Even the BBC figures more that enough people will know about, and have an interest in, what’s going on at Pornhub to find value about knowing something about it! Will they continue to provide a blow-by-blow description of the evolving situation at PH, as their viewers are likely demanding? LOL

Maybe PH could try and blame today’s Google outage, in some way? If they could, and they felt the need to litigate over it, I heard that Sidney Powell has been seeking a new gig for the last few weeks. Sorry, was that a low blow?

I guess the short version is - So, it’s official! We all watch porn! Yeah ... don’t think too hard about that one ... and it’s implications ...

Happy surfing, everyone (well unless you’re looking for one of your favourite vids which was over on PH ... )

Unbelievable! I wonder if any American news outlets picked it up.
I think the majority of humans have watched porn at some point in time. I would not have wanted to explain Porn Hub to my kids when they were young, LOL.

I saw something on the internet about it, but didn't read the article....just the headline. Had something to do with being dropped by Mastercard and Visa regarding the content and a lot of it being unverified.

Hmmmm....I know I left that wand around here somewhere!

I guess it’s considered newsworthy-enough that it needed to be communicated to the public. I imagine there were some confused or perplexed people who went to PH, and went WTF? Maybe the news reported on it in order to protect us all? Explaining to a large (?) group of people why they couldn’t get their porn keeps us all safe?

Mmmm, probably wouldn’t crack the top-100 stories, for the American media? They got bigger fish to fry, even though the Electoral College voted yesterday (is this over? Yet?!?)

I don’t know if I’d want to be the parents of 9- to 13-year-olds, these days. The “bird and the bees” talk must be a little different, now ...

It’s always bad when the accountants get in there ... they ruin the fun for everyone else? Since I bet it would be darned-near impossible for such websites to actually go through and verify everything which non-industry-entities upload, I imagine this could have quite the ripple effect on “that” part of the internet.

I guess there’s no way for the credit-card companies to “interfere” on other kinds of social-media platforms, to stop, or at least slow, the spread of other kinds of “unverified” content (I don’t conspiracy theories, do I? )

That would be quite a cudgel to use across the porn-website realm, if losing access to your primary payment methods meant you had to get control of what was going on on your platform.

Funny how “exposure”, “liability” and “risk” aren’t the most please-sir-can-I-have-some-more concepts for the money folks. I wonder how long the credit-card companies have been concerned about this. Has the porn-website industry been considered “too big to fail” that they haven’t been willing to act, until now?
