guy: "Well we've found out it's getting blocked by this network. We've seen this before, but what does this data have in common?"
me: "Okay, I understand the trend. They're filtering it because it looks too much like an advertisement."
The video features an animated milk carton:
...and it is possible that a primitive screening system might interpret the video as an ad for milk instead of an artistic work.
Currently I am experimenting with using Disqus for comments, however it is configured that you don't have to log in or tie it to an account. Simply check the "I'd rather post as a guest" button after clicking in the spot to type in a name.

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
