My condolences to the staff who had to put up with those pics

Made me feel very ill... No sleep for me tonight.

Not sure why it took them so long to halt uploads. Especially when the images were pretty distressing from my point of view.

More like they deserved it for not acting quicker. You stop a leak so it wont turn into a flood, its very basic. They usually deal with sometimes softer sometimes worse things so I don't consider this anything bad. Part of the job no?

But then again don't feel sorry for people who are slow to do their jobs and have a website such as this vulnerable shit like this for years. They had it coming good.

What happened?
Some bots uploaded a massive flood of imagery that goes around a type of phobia that is basically holes in skin, that looks like a disease, or alien life crawling out of the palms of you hand.

In general it was mostly PS work, but still not okay for to show. Forget the name of it, but I know Pewdiepie has a strong fear of it.

There aren't staff online 24/7. In that kind of situation, it's difficult to play catch up on a DDOS attack.

Trypophobia. Or something like that. I'd google it, but...too afraid to.

Trypophobia, IIRC.

I understand that, but it was reported on Twitter that they were doing something about it an hour before they disabled uploads.

Depends on the persons experience using the UI. I'm sure they haven't had much practice against that, but I do agree it should have went to instant upload halt until they could figure it out.

Smart batto!
Some really cool pics, actually. Whoever was posting this, they have a good selection, that's for sure.

Why does this stuff even happen?

Should they be required to know this stuff? Pragmatically, I mean. They are the ones running this site, after all. Hopefully they'll learn from this... We all know it will happen again.

FA's been like this for years.

Rules/TOS also are vague as hell. IMO they allow mods/admins to take matters into their own hands and remove content they personally don't like and make up excuses for the removal of said content.

"Normal" moderators can't single-handedly shutdown uploads for the whole site. The people that can aren't online 24/7.
That's basic common sense.

That aside,
It's not even a real, officially recognized phobia.

It's just some sketchy photoshops that people find nasty to look at. Give something nasty a "phobia" name, and suddenly everyone "has" that phobia.

That's a very close-minded viewpoint. A phobia has to be of something innocuous; trypophobia transcends the gory images that were uploaded to the website. There's a lot more to it than that.

It's not an opinion, it's a fact.

Ask any doctor. Trypophobia is not officially recognized as a phobia. There is no such thing as "a phobia (intense, irrational fear, or anxiety) of irregular patterns or clusters of small holes or bumps.". Sure, the images are nasty, but it's not a phobia. It just grosses people out.

At the moment. It's a very poorly understood state, so while you can sit there and belittle people by saying 'it just grosses people out', there are those who are genuinely affected by it in a debilitating manner. Maybe show a little understanding that not all people feel the same way you do?
