Oh, please. Single-link posts are fine here - always have been. If you don't believe me, here's Matt saying so just this afternoon. And the site's been linking to porn for years; if it bothers you, what are you even doing in this thread? There's no denying that this kind of adult-content user submission video site is timely news.

Yeesh. How can someone with a user number of 1178 have missed this kind of basic stuff, and then rush to judgment in such an off-base way? Ignore it, c:\awesome.

You actually saying that with a straight face? Seriously.

Contrary to (un)popular belief, it is not the responsibility of every adult on the internet to protect children from reality. If a parent wants to protect their child from whatever that parent perceives as "smut," it is that parent's responsibility. Besides, any 'young person' who doesn't know what a boobie looks like? Obviously wasn't breast fed. No. I didn't say that with a straight face.

Speaking of metadata, I can't help but wonder if a faceted approach to porn would be effective. We could work with an audience facet (gay, straight, male, female), a performer gender facet, performer age facet, number of participants facet, type of activity facet, and so forth. Add in a Flamenco or NCSU style browsing system and you'd be in the money.

Furthermore, applying vocabulary control and synonym rings would greatly aid recall. No more wondering if you should search on "blowjob," "head," "oral," or "hummer." Add the less popular names as entry terms and you'll get the whole lot! The level of pre-coordination vs. post-coordination will have to be decided, probably by user studies and research into pornography seeking behavior, but I'm sure I just read something in JASIST about that last issue. I should email Michael Gorman right now.
