    This thread is to track any examples and evidence of this.

    4chan has 'yourbrainonporn' (or a substring) as a banned url. If you attempt to post it, you are banned for 24 hours automatically.

    I've sent an email to the admins asking about this.

    (Before anyone claims it's not censorship if a government isn't doing it, you're wrong. Anyone can censor. Substitute the term 'suppression' if you wish.)

    Hmmm... that's very curious indeed.

    4chan is basically a porn site.

    It makes sense for them to censor YBOP.

    I learned about YBOP from a thread on 4chan /r9k/. Someone linked Gary's TED Talk video there. It has porn, but that's not all it has. I was banned a few hours ago while trying to give someone relevant advice on the Advice board.

    I couldn't stand automated net filters, I won't bother trying with those.

    That's interesting.

    I've alluded to this before. I can't go into details but we were dropped, and blocked from a few places were we had previously blogged. Another popular site we blog on has a few editors who consitently prevent our posts from being seen. They have a top 5 - and a few of our most popular posts (ED) have been permanently banned from appearing in the top 5.

    I don't see a conspiracy, but these and many other events have shown us that the info on YBOP is not welcome in many places on the web.

    Can't stop us now, because reality is catching up with a lot guys...and they don't like it.

    i wouldnt say 4chan is a pure porn board. you can even use the forum selection to filter adult material out. 4chan is basically an anarchy board so its probably the last place were censorship is really active.

    but i wouldnt be surprised if the porn industry fears the nofap movement.
