Well, I wanted to embed the video in the post but I couldn't parse the "html lookup table" to get it to work. Which is why it exists, I suppose. Damn you, DU code security! :-)

I put it in the General Discussion-Politics board.

5. You can't embed it, you have to link to it.

10. Why do you say that?
Embedding would be much less of a hassle for the viewer. (Though I suppose with one of our YouTube Threads it could make page load times a little slow.)

12. Because I don't come here to see videos plastered all over the place and
foisted upon me, even if I have to choose to hit the play button. Links I can accept, embedded would piss me off to no end.

2. The rule is... No Hasselhoff singing in German clips.

3. An unspoken rule seems to be that you must post the link without any
indication whatsoever of the content of the video.

7. Only videos obtained by the YouTube search string "Japanese Bikini Idol"
are allowed.

All others will be deleted by the mods with no explanation.

If you complain about this policy, you will be banned.

11. ...
I looked, I didn't play any of them but I looked. Would you characterize yourself as being "bullish" on them?

13. That's not the word I'd use, but I'm flattered that you remembered
to associate that word with me.
