    A site called dudetube is one of the finest out there for gay interest (vids and articles and links)I visit it almost daily.

    Two days ago it got hacked and I encourage everyone here to read the comments there since there's something going on by the religious right to shut down (by hacking) sites which are sympathetic to gay interests.I remember a while back this site was hacked and it took a day or so before it was up and running again. Just please be aware these bastards are out there.

    The guy who runs it (Matt) is a really fine man and he's totally out in the cold as to what to do.Maybe some of you could lend him some assistance. I'm sure some of you already know about dudetube.

    Are you sure it was hacked? Blogger has been shutting down a lot of blogs that are linking to copyrighted videos. Some have migrated to other services and others have simply shut down.

    It's not just Blogger, aka Google, but also the file sharing sites that have come under fire for hosting files without the permission of the owner.

    While I have no doubt that wingers wll attempt to shut down gay sites, in this case, we need to look beyond that and examine all the issues.

    There were about 2 dozen porn blogs that I frequented and in the last few weeks there are only about 3 that have survived Blogger's new terms.

    No. Actually I'm not sure. But I think it's worth paying attention to.That's the reason I suggested everyone here see what's going on by reading through the comments.

    They appear to think it's a "hakking" as they put it.

    It is across the board!!!!! I was checkin' out Youtube ftoday for some great booty nourishment (best booty shakin' vids on the planet) and found that 65% of them have been removed! It seems that there is a crackdown on all of the good free shit on the web... seeing that dudetube is one of the better gay sites out there, it is experiencing the same process that all of the other sites are! The religious right's attack on the site is VERY troubling though!!!! :mad:
