Page Deletion Request: YouTube Mirror

YasakTube was not a video-upload site, it was one of many "tunnel" websites which sprang up during the access-block in Turkey, which lasted from 2008 to 2010[1].

This is further indicated by a near-identical UI, and a disclaimer at the bottom of their website openly stating that the contents were being mirrored from the actual YouTube[2].

Although nothing of value was lost from its shutdown, WayBackMachine screenshots from days before the access-block was lifted show traces of the trends from the time, which perhaps wouldn't have been documented or archived in any other way.

It might still deserve a page somewhere, but I'm sure that marking it as lost/saved isn't really applicable.
