@ Lemonstand: Not sure what your point is from your comment, but if it`s a matter of not understanding the term "gore porn" (at least as it`s used in this thread), here is an explanation.

I`m not even watching this. I hope this "Gore Porn" trend doesn`t continue here. There are plenty of other places for it and the folks that like it.

I`m iffy about this. On one hand a video like this takes away the chasm of war and what war does to people and how it affects their lives. We insulate ourselves from the reality. Maybe just maybe this will dissuade people from doing this to other Humans.

Also, to those of you saying it was clearly marked, it was NOT clearly marked if you use the "back" and "next" links. I ended up seeing the thumbnail that I wouldn`t have seen otherwise since I usually just use the next and back links.

Would not watch. Thanks for the warning, I do not find this kind of content entertaining. It is one thing if you see this on an anti-war or anti-land-mine site, but on IAB, this is just gore-porn.

VV @MrPeabody: I didn`t look at that one either. I was glad for the warning!

I`m a sensitive soul! Far too empathetic for my own good...

I wouldn`t "ban" gore, but insist it be properly labeled! "Goru" or "Ero Gore" is RIGHT OUT! And possibly illegal...

(Japanese hentai (perverted comics) featuring gore just for it`s own sake or gore mixed with sexual activity (like a snuff film, only worse).)

I learned a while back that if it says "graphic"? Chances are I DO NOT WANT to see it...

I`m glad for the warning, but wish this kind of stuff (that demands a fair warning!) were not part of IAB...

@BBJellyFish I said unlikely but not impossible. While one can hope he survived...on the other hand, that is a horrible way to live the rest of your life.

Unlikely that he survived?? I think its very likely he survived. From the video it seems that there`s no major bleeding, no damage to the important arteries and veins. I think that the only thing that would kill him, would be infection of his wound.

I didn`t see the pic or video. I saw the warning and skipped straight to comments. I am glad I did.

@MrPeabody (<--That makes me smile!) I honestly didn`t feel like I was being attacked. I just wanted to get it out there why I submitted it. In the end, it is the mods decision what gets posted and I feel they knew it would spark a discussion of sorts, hence the posting.

But I completely understand why there are those who don`t want this kind of content even available on IAB. Though it isn`t even remotely on the same wavelength, I feel this way about the abundance of political propaganda.

I don`t think anyone here is suggesting that you intended it to be Gore Porn, nor is anyone attacking you personally for it. It is more a collective "We don`t want the site to become that kind of site", and we just want the mods to know it.

I also understand your confusion about things that are posted on this site. When I first started coming here years ago, the policy was to never post a video where someone dies, but that policy seems to be ignored more and more.

1) I don`t really come to this site to see such as this.

2) Whle war is horrible, I`ve seen similar injuries from motorcycle accidents.

& 3) lauriloo-"Maybe if some people saw what children shot with an AK-47 looks like, they might not be so anxious to defend owning one."

Yes, because increased gun control in the US (or anywhere) will eliminate war around the world.

I saw the video of the man slicing his back with the machete posted earlier and one thing let to another and this video popped up. I was horrified and, quite frankly, AMAZED that he was just sitting there. While it is unlikely that he survived it isn`t impossible.

Considering videos have been posted in the last months of people actually being shot to death right before our very eyes I am a little surprised at the reaction. I posted this more to share amazement at what the human body can handle...not to be "Gore Porn".

Generally this kind of thing doesn`t faze me much but this poor kid is probably no longer upright. Yes, this was labelled quite appropriately to warn people that dont want to watch it. I don`t understand the motive to post such content - IAB usually has interesting, cool and funny stuff posted and this seems like such a depature from that.

Not that I`m complaining mind - I just wonder if it was truely necessary to post. Considering not much can be gained apart from nightmares for a few.

@ DrProfessor: Points well-taken. If such posts were limited to one every six months, and appropriately labeled, I could live with it. My main concern is that this type of content doesn`t proliferate.

The problem is that once videos like this start going up, they start to attract an audience of people who are looking for them. Soon, such posts get more page views than the others, and before long we have another site like Chaotic.

My two cents, anyways. Have to hit the road for a weekend trip. Happy Memorial Day everyone! =^.^=

@Squrlz I`m not in favor of this becoming a regular thing. It`s been years since I saw the last one, and I`d be perfectly happy not to see another for some years to come.

Yet tapping into what whodat said, I think this has value outside of being `gore porn`. This is the price of our violence. This is the fallout of humans being incapable of peacefully coexisting. If this shocks you, disturbs you, keeps you awake at night, then maybe you`ll think twice before saying we should "bomb all of those f*ckin` commies". (that `you` being very general. Not accusing you personally of such sentiment)

It`s one thing to proselytize about a utopia of peace...but, I think, even that can ring hollow from our clean and tidy corners of the world. A dose of harsh reality is humbling, and reminds us that while we`re bickering over our petty differences between left and right, there are actual living beings out there with their lives being destroyed.

I appreciate the argument that such videos can serve to remind us of just how horrible and gruesome war is. Personally, I don`t want such videos on IAB, but I see some do. Perhaps Fancy could take a poll?

One problem I have with all this: We seem to have a de facto "No pornography" policy (which I agree with). Have we now adopted a policy where a girl giving a guy a blow job is forbidden, but a teen still alive with half his face blown off is A-OK?

Really?!

I did not, nor will I, watch this video because of the description and from reading the comments. I think people should be smart enough to not click on something they don`t want to see, especially if it is clearly stated what they will see.

That being said, I also do believe there should be a line somewhere that should not be crossed. This is coming from someone who just posted the video of the guy slicing his back. I was even of two minds submitting that. I found it looking for something totally unrelated, and though it was bizarre. I watched it like 5 times because I couldn`t determine if it was even real. I submitted it because it was not life threatening, nor a permanent injury (given proper care), and self inflicted.

Ultimately we are the only ones responsible for what we click on, but I think the mods should hold the line a little better.

Regardless of what you see on TV & in the movies, war isn`t pretty folks. This is the dose of reality the average Joe needs. The videos/pictures help give you a good idea but one thing that I`ll always remember is the smell, that`s the worst part.

Graphic content can be allowed here, i have already post some of that but there`s a line that shouldn`t be crossed. Iab is not a place for gore porn. And this kid is probably dead by now

I don`t like seeing stuff like this but, frankly, I think it does people like us with cushy lives good to occasionally see how terrible war (and guns) can be. Maybe if some people saw what children shot with an AK-47 looks like, they might not be so anxious to defend owning one.

@ DrProfessor: In all honesty, if posts like this started to become a regular feature, I`d stop coming here. I feel that strongly about it.

This stuff belongs either on a medical website, a site documenting wartime atrocities, or a "Gore Porn" site such as Chaotic.

We`ve already had posts like this on this site before. There was another, in fact, very similar one about a diving incident. Plus, this site is full of links that aren`t just cheap laughs. The mods are generally adamant that this isn`t just a `humor` site.

I`m not saying this is `cool` or whatever, but in my case it is medically interesting (I`m going to med school in a year), and it`s not slanderous or offensive to anyone. It has very intense content, but it doesn`t pretend otherwise and warns anyone not comfortable with that not to peek.

This should be removed. This does NOT belong on this kind of site. Like everyone said so far, this site is to get a couple of laughs and interesting stories/links etc. This is not funny or interesting in any way. It is just plain disgusting. This is not a gore site. That`s what 4chan is for.

DrProfessorit has nothing to do with the content being marked or not.. this is not the place for stuff like this. This is an entertainment website where you go to have a cheap laugh, pass some time..

Nobody is complaining that it`s not marked enough, just that this website should not have content like this, marked or otherwise.

Yeah, I`m still shaken up by that. I`ve never asked a mod to take a post down before, but that`s my request on this one. I don`t want a precedent to be set for this degree of gore. It also strikes me as wrong to offer up such horrible suffering on a website called "I Am Bored."

This was very clearly marked with warnings about the nature of its content. If you didn`t want to see it, you shouldn`t have clicked the link.

I`m frankly astonished that he`s conscious. Either way, the poor kid probably doesn`t have long to live. An open wound that big is a huge risk for infection. I can`t imagine how surgeons would even go about handling it, though I suppose I can`t speak for them since I`m no surgeon.

I`m almost at a loss for words. Horrific.

There are some websites, such as Chaotic, that specialize in such content. Personally, I`d prefer it stayed on those sites and wasn`t posted here. It is just too disturbing.
