It never occurred to me to keep tabs on the racial makeup of the featured videos.. I watch them and laugh/cringe/or throw-up in my mouth a little bit without considering race. Your "Guilty until proven innocent" approach is very telling about who you are and what you are all about. If you want to complain about a website with featured videos of MOSTLY blacks doing stereotypical, petty, and/or violent crimes check out WORLDSTARHIPHOP and complain to them.. until then STFU about it already..

Your rules about racism and racial slurs are bullshit and I think everybody knows it. One thing I've noticed is that the majority of videos that get featured and make it to the front page are videos of black people committing petty or violent crime. The comments are almost entirely racist.

This, and the fact that you do almost nothing about the rampant racism here, leads me to believe that Liveleak is in fact a racist website in itself. I believe Liveleak has an agenda to demonize all non-white people (especially black/African). I'd be very surprised if anybody could show me any evidence to the contrary because everything I see here leads me to believe this.

I, and most others here, will remember when LL moderating was very light to non existent; you could say what you liked and the community would pull you up on it, or not. The LL community generally attracted hard shelled people looking for shocking videos - Ogrishers if you will; that's where I came from anyway.
Hard to offend types.

Now the site has attracted more media attention and, as a result, more over-sensitive, easily offended 'main-stream' people the moderation has tightened to the point that we now have a 'Troll' status, comment-blocks on certain videos, and tighter moderation.

Hayden has had his 15 minutes of fame and I think he liked it. So he's making the site more acceptable in the quest for more attention.
Problem with that Hayden is, Liveleak caught the media eye because it wasn't mainstream; it was gritty and was populated by a different public than you would find on Vimeo or Youtube.

So we become more and more beige in the quest for more people, more money; when what will really happen is you'll change it to the point where it stops being LLeak in anything but name, and you'll just be anothermediasite like Vimeo, or others video sites that I completely forget right now.

It'd be like 4Chan becoming more like the Gaia forums so as to be more fluffy to the over sensitive types and try and get more media attention. Who the hell needs another Gaia forum. Who the hell needs another Youtube populated by over sensitive dicks like Davypoo.

My god the irony, now you can't post a forum post without a Mod vetting it first.
A stellar direction Hayden

What's awesome is that you wrote all of that out when you could have copy / pasted something from 2006 where people bitched about the same thing. And don't worry about my 15 minutes, I considered that over with in late 2007 when we pretty much stopped doing interviews and the like, but your deep insight into my personality is much appreciated.

Anti spam measure that's been in place for years or a sign of an authoritarian police state website...you decide!

I love the way we see the same posts year on year. How it's all gone to shit, how it's going to die, how we're just power junkies...vain power junkies! Do you guys have a secret club where you decide who goes next?

QFT.

Getting sick of his place.

1: Horrendous HD quality.

2: Horrendous fps. 30 down to 20.

3: 300mB video down converted to 40mB.

4: Uploaded a 5 min race I had in GRID Autosport. Was deleted for copyright infringement.

5: Still no answerer as I 'contacted them' about this. 7-8 days ago.

6: No action against racism targeting me, Muslims and African community in general.

This is a degenerate place.
