MSN is blocking YouTube links

Post by pr0gram the pr0grammer »

This seems to have happened just now ... if you try to send a message with a YouTube link in it, the message won't be delivered.

I suppose Microsoft employees got tired of being RickRolled...

I got this earlier too. What a piece of [censored]. There will be so many complaints about it soon that they'll have to take it off.

Well I have Live Messenger 8.5 and it works...
Or maybe it's because I just entered "wewefwefwef" as video ID and it does only block valid youtube links or it takes a while till it says "Unable to send"

What I want to know is why are they blocking them with no explanation to the users?

This is a load of [censored]!

Maybe there is a statement coming, this is very immature in my eyes though.

EDIT: Well seems to be fixed now.
