I never entailed to write what you now read, but for the matters at hand; I feel I need to give my word on it.

As shown in the section succeeding this, there lies a rant onto which; touches a subject I cherish and advocate for: the release of untouched media for therein lies no risk. The media at hand is a episode of, being in a slightly ironic tone; Sesame Street.

The episode in question is one for which many have heard of and indeed, sought for ever since it's airing in 1976. The episode is #847. For 43 years prior to now, it's only location was the vault of Sesame Workshop's archive; gathering dust and attracting flies. But on the 25th of November at the The Museum of the Moving Image in New York City, there occurred a "Lost and Found" event in celebration of the show's 50th anniversary; two episodes were shown, the aforementioned #847; but also episode #2895 but for the sake of now, only the former will be presented for two reasons.

A: The episode is more well known.
B: What will be said for the former, can be said for the latter.

And so, the episodes were shown and indeed; well received. All was well and all was fair, but then, there arose the beginning of a controversy within the Lost Media community. On the 3rd of December, an anonymous user on the Internet Archive posted 7 minutes of episode #847 and a currently unknown amount of episode #2895; but reportedly - upwards of 8 minutes were presented. Within minutes of it's posting, people who saw it were horrified, saying they'll "report them to the FBI" and that "we will ensure your taken down"; the few who stood against them have been backlashed and a point of terror has erupted.

This is where I come in, earlier today; for which is the 5th of December. 2 days after the posting of the clips and a full 10 days after the original screening, I have said my part on the matter. Before one reads the core of what I have said, I recommend the viewing or; if that is not possible to be enacted; the listening to the clips in question; after such - the review may make a slight more sense. But it may be read with or without this.

I now present, what was said promptly. I shall comment thereafter in brief, but the statement is best left for itself to speak.
