Things like social networks though, would be quite helpful to link to. As LEGO steps into the social networking age, they have active accounts sharing new content on almost every social network and video hosting site. Not being able to link to these things, especially videos makes it hard to share updates about the new material in topics.
I believe users here have the ability to judge what they should and shouldn't link to on some sites, so restricting it 100% seems excessive. With commenting systems and social networks being the largest form of communication on the web these days, there are certainly going to be bad things out there, but there is also a large amount of good content that will be missed and BZPower will lose a lot of potential discussion.
What should and shouldn't be linked to should still be up to the staff, but all I'm requesting is that the rule gets changed to be a little less strict...
Anyways, yes. The forbidden site is a very good example of it. Really, it should be up to the user to judge what videos should and should not be linked to, the same way it is up to the user to judge what is okay and not okay to post on BZP. Yes, there's always the danger of an inappropriate video popping up as a related video, but seriously, I don't see many inappropriate lego-related videos out there, do you? Stumbling across inappropriate content is an innate danger of the internet, and googling an E-rated video game yields more inappropriate content than the related videos for a simple brickfilm. So really, as long as we aren't linking to inappropriate videos, we should be able to link to/discuss the forbidden site.
