the autoplay causes some issues... for example it causes you to download a 20mb video file ocassionally so I'll likely switch it to the non autoplay version.
Also, since it's an iframe you can't use rules to block it from loading.

This is pretty terrible design for mobile applications and I'll switch to the non-auto version later.

Hotwheels may have gotten Watkins also kicked out of the Phillipines.

https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/men-qanon/story?id=73046374

>Yet, in a previously unreported development in January, the Philippines Bureau of Immigration's (BI) Investigations Division determined that James Watkins was a risk to the public interest, a designation called an "undesirable alien," according to Philippines immigration records obtained by ABC News.


>Watkins "is the owner and operator of 8chan, a hate filled forum/website which hosts trolling and serves as go-to resource for violent extremists and white supremacists," the bureau of immigration's charging sheet states.


>The designation is administrative, not criminal and "it basically means you're deportable," said Jathniel Shao, an Ohio-based immigration attorney with an office in Manila.


>"Being deemed undesirable by the [Philippines] Bureau of Immigration is not uncommon," Shao said. "Even if you do something stupid when you're drunk or get in a fight with the wrong people, anyone can file a claim with the BI about any alien. It's the BI commissioners' discretion whether to pursue further action."


>Immigration documents show that Watkins sought authorization to return to the U.S. and was given a travel window of Aug. 27, 2020, through Jan. 31, 2021, before he is expected to return to appeal the undesirable alien designation. He departed for the U.S. on Sept. 4, though it's unclear where he is currently living. Benjamin Barr, Watkins' U.S. attorney, did not reply to an ABC News email last week requesting information about Watkins' current whereabouts.


>Reached earlier this month at Watkins' home in a gated community in the Pasig City section of Manila, a man who identified himself as Watkins' brother-in-law confirmed to ABC News that Watkins had returned to the U.S., following his son Ron's earlier return stateside. The brother-in-law also said that in June, Watkins sold the pig farm south of Manila where he'd been living with his family for years.


>While officials with the bureau of immigration declined to specify what prompted the Watkins investigation, Brennan told ABC News last week he thinks he knows what happened.


>"Wow, it worked," Brennan said, when notified of Watkins' immigration designation.


>He went on to explain that after Watkins filed a cyber-libel complaint against him last fall, Brennan hired a local Manila attorney to accompany Brennan's wife to repeatedly complain in person about Watkins to one of a handful of commissioners at the bureau of immigration's Manila headquarters, arguing that Watkins' history of web hosting Asian pornography and anonymous forums like 8chan from the Philippines should compel his designation as an undesirable alien.


>"We were basically playing his own game back at him, because he chased me out of the country first," Brennan said.


>Brennan said he bets Watkins stays in the U.S.


>"I would be shocked if he really ever returns now that this immigration case is going," Brennan said.


>"If you're a foreigner there you really have to prove you're not undesirable," he said. "The bureau of immigration can deport anyone for any reason or no reason and the only person who can overturn it is Duterte."


>"And that'll never happen."


>Immigration records show that Watkins must return by Jan. 31, or he would be placed on a blacklist and barred from reentry to the Philippines.

At the very least it's self evidently a streamlined way to dox residents of specific states. And as far as voter exploitation is concerned the biggest deterrent seems to be the legal implications, so most likely it won't be any American or potential Western anons that will do anything as it would be very likely a lot of resources would be put towards catching and prosecuting them considering the nature of the crime. That leaves it squarely in the hands of anons from second and third world nations. Some conservative online outlets have covered it and some liberal ones have dismissed it, with it mostly lost in the sea of general election security talk. Realistically you won't see much real action unless someone actually exploits this.
There is still a general on /pol/ about it, trying to drum up the narrative but again unless/until it's exploited beyond doxxing there probably won't be much more coverage.
