Turns out even being a woman for 25 years doesn’t qualify one to know how to properly wear a bra. That’s what I found out today reading the extremely helpful, extremely supportive subreddit r/ABraThatFits. 

The subreddit features extensive information, guides, photos, and graphs so women facing back pain, red marks, migrating breast tissue, and other issues can finally find a bra that truly fits.

The 10 most popular search terms on Giphy

Being a GIF creator stinks if you want to be recognized—and rewarded—for your work. On Tumblr, artist attribution often disappears within the first reblog. In Reddit’s case, it’s nonexistent to begin with. Users simply don’t care who’s behind the content they’re sharing.

Like any artist, GIF creators deserve to make money for their work. Some, like Tumblr funnyman Benjamin “frogman” Grelle, have even taken image sharing sites like Imgur to task for hosting unattributed versions of their images.

Giphy, a new GIF search engine founded by Alex Chung and Jace Cooke, is trying to fix this problem and do what no other network can: help artists make some money and promote their name.

Giphy’s new artist attribution system will encourage artists to share their work and reward users who give credit when sharing it. The search engine has offered private accounts to 12 different illustrators, including Frank Macchia, a Los Angeles–based comic artist. Macchia dabbles in GIF art and and has been commissioned by Giphy to create original animations.

The new GIF artist profiles are a “first small step toward building a serious platform for GIF creators,” Cooke told the Daily Dot.

He gave us the most-searched-for terms on his site. It’s “somewhat embarrassing,” he admitted.

“It’s probably also worth noting that we automatically filter most NSFW GIFs from our crawls (not for philosophical reasons but because it’s a huge legal and SEO quagmire),” he added.

Why YouTube’s reply girls are here to stay

Try as it might, YouTube cannot get rid of the reply girls.

Since summer 2011, the opportunistic women have used their search-engine-optimization prowess, cleavage, and tag manipulation to generate massive view counts and, in turn, advertising revenue on YouTube. Their breast-filled thumbnails took over the related videos section until February, when community members banded together in protest.

The Daily Dot dubbed the outrage “Tittiepocalypse,” and the Google-owned site rewrote its code in March to deal with the reply girls’ spam techniques.

The homegrown YouTube community rejoiced at the momentary victory. Users returned to watching viral videos of cats and pranks without being bombarded with reply girl cleavage on the right hand side of the screen. It was a happy time for many.

However, some women have found an exploit that works, and the reply girls’ ample breasts are creeping up the related-video section once more. Where there’s a will—and financial incentive—there’s a way.(cont.)

Reply girls return: YouTube’s attempts to stop suggestive spam have failed

The reply girls are back.  

Old hands and newcomers alike are cleverly using tags and breasts to spam YouTube again, suggesting the Google-owned site’s attempts to arrest the broadly disapproved practice have failed.

A number of YouTube users caused a ruckus on the site earlier this year by replying to popular videos with spammy responses. Using the site’s tags and featuring aggressive cleavage allowed otherwise content-free videos to dominate related video queues. The practice, intended to generate advertising revenue for the reply girls, upset a lot of YouTubers at the time, and the reply girls’ return is sure to be highly unpopular.(cont.)
