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.

Some people claim that the UNIX learning curve is steep, but at least you only have to climb it once.

Working...
