 I went to Bad Movies myspace page...and the THANKSGIVING trailer seems to have been censored in not available. I have it posted on my site to,courtsy of BMO ,same thing. Also, I tried to add a photo to my slide shoe...which has many gruesome images ,one gory one in particular of daylight through a little girl's head,from Fulci's 7 DOORS of DEATH,yet when I tried to download a illustration of George W. with vampire fangs taking a bite of of Lady Liberty's neck- I got a "WARNING!" flag,stating no excessive violence or nudity was allowed! No nudity is in the picture...and violence...? Hell! I downloaded a drawing of my own showing a nun possessed by a demon,squriting blood out of her nipples ! This seems like an odd thing ...being they are advertising the TRIPPER...Ronny Reagan as a serial killer! Whut gives?

             Sooooooooooooo...I have just tried an expeirment of my own...and hope I don't get booted off Myspace....I added to my own Myspace page an excessively bloody short of I DRINK YOUR BLOOD,the old gore movie from the 70's...which has breif nudity,to see what happens. I just want to see if there is a double standerd for theyre censor policies...I'll let you know if anything happens.

I would guess that they have some sort of program that checks the image.  I do not know what your file name was like, so perhaps it clued off of that in some way?  Like killervamp.jpg could trigger it, while 88279.jpg would not. 

If the file name was not the trigger, perhaps some sort of generic image recognition is in effect?  The only other thing I could come up with is that their system "remembers" naughty (reported by users) images and pictures based on an MD5 or other value.

If the system alerts you, it might place the alert into a list to be checked by human eyes for compliance.

I checked Youtube and the Thanksgiving trailers are all still there so it must've been flagged by Myspace.

My guess is that some ultra conservative, easily offended a-hole probably reported it and Myspace stopped the faux trailer cold.

It's too bad...that trailer was pure B-movie gold.   Thumbup
