Yes I've seen those threads on 4chan (/b/) about that porn attack.
It was pretty funny in fact, except for Youtube moderators :)

A comment at Reddit: "It's a running gag for 4channers to try to get ebaumsworld blamed by the media for just about everything." Anyone knows more about this?

Haha, yes Philipp

Generally when a "raid" is happening, we.. uh.. I mean people from 4chan often refer to each other as being from e/b/aums, as a play on the board called /b/ on 4chan.

Many on 4chan, 7chan or any other chans maintain a rivalry with ebaums, SomethingAwful, Gaia and AnonTalk for various reasons, and that's why it's funny to blame everything on ebaums. It is rare that the two boards would unite in this effort, and ebaums were probably listed because of /b/tards efforts to blame "e/b/aums" on it by not referring to /b/ in any other way other than in the e/b/aums form.

In fact, the first two "Rules of The Internet" on /b/ are:

1. Do not talk about /b/
2. DO NOT talk about /b/

Hence my comment to Tom above. :D

I hope this clears it up, if it was unclear before.

Following the excitement of "Porn Day" I want to set the record straight: ebaumsworld.com was not behind the spamming of YouTube. There is a long history of the ebaumsworld.com and 4chan.org communities competing for the "bad boy" crown on the Internet. For years the communities of these two sites have done battle to see who could cause the most havoc across the World Wide Web. ebaumsworld.com respects the terms and conditions of sites like YouTube and would never instigate such behavior. If you want to learn more about the history of ebaumsworld.com's involvement in pranks on the Internet I invite you to search our blogs http://www.ebaumsworld.com/blogs/ and forum http://forum.ebaumsworld.com/

If Ebaum's World is being "falsely blamed by 4chan" for anything, that's hilarious, because Ebaum's World is a notorious content thief and deserves anything coming to them.

I am not sure I understand what is funny about this. Is it true that actual porn is being disguised and anybody can watch the video? I am hoping that because it's late and I'm tired I must be missing something.

"I'm 12 years old and what is this?"
=> this is a (recent) meme from 4chan too, not a real 12-years-old Youtube user ;-)
