    Youtube has disappeared from my hubs. It appears to have vanished completely from the Internet. Does anyone know where it is?

      The videos in my hub are fine!

      The video that dissapeared could have been removed from youtube by the user or youtube!

    ISLAMABAD (AFP) - Pakistan has ordered all Internet service providers to block the YouTube website for containing “blasphemous” content and material considered offensive to Islam, officials said Sunday.

    YouTube because it contained “blasphemous content, videos and documents,” a government official told AFP.

    “The site will remain blocked till further orders,” he said.

    So an ISP in Pakistan decided to announce a route that would re-direct anyone trying to get to YouTube to some other site that probably hosted a warning about the blasphemous content. Results were predictable. YouTube itself disapeared from the Internet, And, I suspect that most of Pakistan is experiencing performance issues as they are receiving ALL of the YouTube requests from around the world. By 2:30 the Internet watch guards had alerted the backbone provider for Pakistan to filter out those malicious route announcements and alerted YouTube to announce more granular routes that would supercede the Pakistani routes, at least in the US.

    As of this writing, 3:30 Eastern most of the rest of world can still not get to YouTube.
    ps this story is from google news

      I don't understand how a third world country was able to affect our access to the site in Canada, US, Europe and elsewhere. Very disturbing. What if they get upset with hubpages or wikipedia etc. Does that mean they are all vulnerable?
