The YTMND parasite ( thefticus ripoffisis ) is the very worst of all YTMND epidemics. Although rare, this parasite feeds on pre-existing YTMNDs and resubmits them without any alteration (save for removing text, or using different sound) as sites of their own making. Parasites believe that stealing from other YTMND users is ok. Parasites rarely offer sound and image origins because they have stolen it from other sites, and revealing the origin would result in its exposure to the light, and light is what kills Parasites, also vaccines.

There is no known cure from Parasites. All YTMND users are free reign to this plague. The only defense is to label the site a "Parasite" if it is known to be stolen from another submission. The difference between the "Parasite", and a NARV site, is that the Parasite infects its own host, and it doesn't take images from outside sources.

note: some users with Parasites say that they got the image from MySpace, or another forum, and have posted it from there. One must realize that most high quality gifs are from YTMND, and should be researched before submitting.

What you can do
Be sure to let infected Parasite users know they are carrying the virus by telling them their site is a "Parasite", and notifying the proper authorities. Original sites that are victim of the parasite are immune to the label of "Parasite", only the stolen site should be branded as such. Unfortunately, most parasites leave their 'creations' up long after it is proven beyond a shadow of a doubt they have stolen, as you will see below.

Asset feature
YTMND's new 'asset' feature allows users to click the cited origin of a site to see what other users have used the same picture or sound. This is an excellent way to determine if a site has been stolen.
