To Admin... Youtube concern

Postby Pa Snip » Thu Oct 20, 2016 9:01 am


Wasn't sure where to post this and just for a change I am not even sure how to word it.

My concern is the new youtube link.
How safe is it? Are there increased risks of hidden trojans / viruses etc.
Do the board security measures scan the content during upload

Are other moderators going to help peter by keeping an eye open for inappropriate content, it seems a gift for those wishing to advertise and peter can't be available 24/7.

I know it was possible to post links anyway, so the risks already existed. It is just that I can just see this being used more as it is a most attractive feature now installed

The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet

Putting a link to youtube on a post adds nothing to the forum other than the written link.

The content comes to your pc.
