by setecastronomy (#16383769) Attached to: Yahoo Messenger Blocking youtube.com URLs?
I don't know how I could "prove" it, but I can verify that this has indeed been happening for at least 4+ months*. Any message with youtube.com in it was silently discarded, but outube.com, utube.com, etc. all went through fine. I suppose I could post chat logs from my two machines, but obviously I could have altered them to suit my own purposes...

I just tested it now, and youtube URLs no longer appear to be filtered. However, they were as recently as two weeks ago.

* In fact, I submitted this when I first noticed it, but my story was rejected. C'est la vie.
