The new WiFi kiosks dotting various city sidewalks have been touted for unleashing the "fastest Internet you've ever used" on New Yorkers. While we had difficulty downloading a video from Dropbox, others have been able to clearly stream porn—and pleasure themselves in the meantime.

Last month, the Post reminded everyone complaining that Times Square was too clean that maybe, just maybe, the bad old days are back, with a story about "horny homeless men" using a kiosk in Times Square to watch porn (there's a tablet on the kiosk). Kiosk operator LinkNYC responded to the spate of public masturbation by adding a filtering system, which a spokesperson to described to the Post as a "highly regarded content monitoring system used by thousands of public schools and libraries across the country." The spokesperson also said LinkNYC had recently added an image search filter.

One disappointed LinkNYC user confirmed the change, "I was watching porn on one of them things on, like, Saturday.... Then on, like, Monday or Tuesday, all of a sudden I couldn’t... Once word got around, it stopped. It sucks, man. It was great."

But don't worry—while your LinkNYC activity will likely be added to the NYPD's magical, Raiders of the Lost Ark-like trove of flotsam and jetsam (that Banksy balloon has gotta be there)—some other enterprising connoisseurs of "Internet porn in public" have apparently found a loophole. Reader Matthew reported, "I was walking down Park Ave and I noticed the screens on those new WiFi Hubs being used to watch porn by two homeless men. They stood there and were jerking off around it." He captured the moment on video:

"I was both amused and disturbed," he admitted. "In a city where nothing surprises, this certainly did. Especially because it was before midnight. However, after laughing the situation off, it's a bit unsettling that this type of material can be accessed so easily. Which makes me concerned about the safety of others and the sterility of the sidewalks."

While it's great that the city now has hotter-than-Hades Internet speed and is offering free access for email, users need to follow basic Internet etiquette. (I.e., no jerking off.) We'll have to see how the NYPD feels when you're charging your phone for Pokemon Go:

Update: A LinkNYC spokesperson tells us, "While no content filtering system can ever be perfect, we are constantly monitoring and updating LinkNYC to block inappropriate content on the tablets, and we are looking into this incident."
