After banning YouTube, military launches TroopTube

Members can upload personal videos from anywhere with an Internet connection, but a Pentagon employee screens each for taste, copyright violations and national security issues.

  1. Hmmmm....
    I can under screening for copyright and security issues, but how do you define taste?

  2. The military can define taste under article 134 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

    When someone wearing the uniform uploads content deemed unacceptable, it is "conduct of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces."

    Also, they have to watch for information that might jeopardize missions.

  3. Don't you just love the military brass. We make the troops fight for our freedom but they can't have any of their own.

  4. Joe:

    Our men and women in uniform volunteer to give up some of their personal freedoms in order to see to it that other Americans have them.

    You can object to the opinion of the leaders of the US military. Their subordinates are also free to do so.

    They simply cannot do so while wearing the uniform of the US.

  5. I have a lot of respect for the military. I have a lot of friends who are currently in it. But I hope they don't limit free speech in connection to taste.

    People should be able to tell their parents and friends their feelings if it helps them get through the day.

    I wonder if this service has a private video function...
