Brigham Young University Lifts YouTube Ban After 3 Years

AP – “Administrators lifted the ban on Friday, citing an increasing amount of educational material on the popular video-sharing site, university spokeswoman Carri Jenkins said. YouTube has its own filters for porn, but BYU added it to the list of Web sites blocked by campus online filters in 2006 because administrators felt there was too much content that could violate the school’s strict, conservative standards.”

    You are kidding, right? The library apparently keeps a soft porn collection front and center. Resultant victims of porn addiction and their therapists pleaded with the library and the school to put the books back on the shelves from whence they came. That was labeled, get this, censorship.
