I was a lurker back then, so it took a while to figure out what the deal was with all that strange lingo.

 

Since nearly all of the words back then have been de-filtered, would anyone mind telling me which things were filtered and why?

 

Why were youtube, brickset and other sites filtered out?

I believe that it was mainly to go against advertising other sites.

 

Some reasons as to why this could be the case is I would garner that it would be related to the fact that BZPower is supposed to be child friendly, and certain sites were not regarded as child friendly. These sites being those that would discuss adult topics or would allow for unmoderated interaction between strangers and the like. At least at the time they weren't regarded as child friendly, a lot has changed since the internet has become more widespread.

 

This is though as far as I'm aware of the situation and is by no means factual or correct.
