these guys are crazy. i mean its awesome in every way, but with all the heat they have been under, it seems pretty futile to start up a video sharing site. even so, i think its awesome. Much respect for tpb

Can't wait to see it go live. I don't think it will be up for long.

Um..no censorship? Of ANY kind? I hope they are going to censor some idiot who ups a vid of some 10yo.

Not sure how smart of a move this is for them to be making, but I guess if they're balsy enough to take that risk then more power to them. I'll certainly enjoy the site for however long it lasts.

Have to agree with that assesment. I mean cause with absolutely no restrictions whatsoever, this site could easily turn to nothing more than a minefield full of xxx rated porn of all varieties, and just be a complete mess that I for one will have no interest visiting. There has to be some standards for content set.

If VideoBay ends up like BayImg, I wouldn't get too excited.

you can get child porn from p2p, should that be a good enough excuse to censor the entire internet? child porn can be printed on paper, should all paper be banned?

its the duality of man, if there is a tool that can do such great things it can also do such horrible things, and it is up to the user to decide what he accomplishes with the tool.

oh and by the way, there is already a bangin' site for streaming warez, its called www.stagevu.com. its basically like suprnovatube.com but it actually works.

Here is the rest of information off thevideobay.org:

This site will be an experimental playground and as such subjected to both live and drunk (en)coding, so please don't bug us too much if the site ain't working properly.

It looks like another interesting site from TPB. As others have said I am sure they will filter out some stuff such as child pr0n that crazy people try to upload.

They might also section the site in a similar fashion to TPB so you can browse for specific types of videos and the porn is only visible to those that sign-in to an account.

Peace

I never said censor the entire internet, but I do expect them to censor CP. And if they don't, then may they burn in HELL for it.
