Made a few changes
Feel free to revert anything I may have incorrectly changed Bladesofhalo 22:50, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
To Whom Belongs LiveLeak.com?
Who invested money to realize this website? Also, it shows no advertising banners. So how does this site finances itself? I could not find anything about this yet. edit: I researched further and the whois-check shows DomainsByProxy.com as owner. This companys slogan is "Your identity is nobodys bussines but ours". Dead end.
Nothing said about the transition from www.ogrish.com a "shock site".
Liveleak what is it ... political or shock site?. It's progenitor www.ogrish.com was certainly known as a shock site. Liveleak seemed to move into the mainstream somehow.
They are both news sites, not shock sites, they both have warnings, shock sites have no such thing. 188.8.131.52 20:41, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

- I, too, found the intro puzzling and came to the talk page to see if it was part of a back and forth edit dispute. History shows it was added in the most recent edit. I've reverted it because it's unsourced and otherwise unqualified. -- C. A. Russell (talk) 23:19, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
- Although I never saw the original inclusion of the term in the article, I think that suggesting or stating that Liveleak has a leaning toward the right is fair enough. Perhaps I should qualify this by saying that the viewers / users who comment there seem to be predominately right wing. A typical example would be any video that mentions guns or gun control: the messages / replies underneath often appear to be written by quite unreasonable people, who seem to think that President Obama is some kind of satanic figure that wants to ruin their lives… Also a quick search will show that the word "liberal" (used perhaps pejoratively) is included in the description of many videos at the site. Whoever originally added the term "right wing" to the article here won't have been the first to recognise this. There's no smoke without fire?
Added a bit about Racial slurs and racism on LiveLeak
Seems liveleak don't like the word ni**er, but can't really be sure and can't cite anything yet.
- Very few people like that word, so I don't see why that would merit inclusion here. Mark Arsten (talk) 17:38, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
I agree, the comment section is extreeeeemely racist, sometimes it's not even worth reading the comments.
US Soldier Section
I have since deleted that section.
-U.S. soldiers- Since May 14, 2007, The United States Department of Defense has restricted access to websites such as YouTube and MySpace in order to prevent violations of Operations Security. One can easily watch war footage from Iraq and Afghanistan, which many show videos from soldiers of the United States and other countries.
