Unfortunately I set aside Dec. 19th - 21st to pirate youtube videos, but good to know I shouldn't have any buffering issues. Christmas comes early this year!

lol...

So you're going to stop using UTube for a few days...

And right after? Catch up on all the time missed an keep watching on there, right?

...

I don't like being restricted on something that hasn't been before, but eh... We're all mostly pawns playing in a much bigger game than ourselves...
If you can imagine it, it can happen...

its too bad corporations don't feel guilty about doing whatever they can to secure more $$$$$$$$. However it seems silly that they would drive out the people most responsible for the success of future media endeavors. And it's so shitty that the gain they're popular status first without these rules then succumb to corporate will after it becomes supposedly "smart" business. I will be participating regardless of outcome. It's the only thing we can do.

And we can email editor@youtube.com the pieces of our minds they wish to take from their pages.

selfish whiny generation Y jackasses.

if you paid for youtube and had a freedom of speech clause that's one thing, you don't, it's free and there's just some buzzword slogan that "it's all about you." it's their business, their income, food on their plates.

please do boycott them for as long as you want, I appreciate the bandwidth and lack of metube videos.

a boycott is the right action, I just don't agree with the reasons. maybe you should take a hint and clean up your language. actually it makes sense to raise the youtube censorship to the level of broadcast TV and radio, those are the standards our cultures have settled on for free media.

I agree with this in that most of the time it's just unnecessary

if they only bad language then fine, it's when they censor real opinions that it concerns me

in fact i found those whining retards in the video so annoying that i'm gonna make a point of watching more youtube videos on the 19th.
the fact that i'll have forgotten about this "travesty of justice and free speech" in 10 mins is beside the point

yeah, I think though that my part in helping you tube gain status by telling all my friends about it and why :back in the day: helped grow the business. And now it turns out that this is what I Must except to happen when good ideas become popular. Let it be bitch for the highest dollar. Have we already forgot about the that entire gay marriage fiasco? that what happens when the money decides. So as it appears people with large sums can put up a condo with you as the only house on the block with condos to all three walls.... then stomp online and slap some restrictions on your (possessive in nature due to our help in building the community surrounding the sit) online chatting/learning/,,,, in your online community it seems. I just don't understand how I'm being whiny I'm upset.. Naturally and encourading people to feel the same way and act. A free internet is going to be a big loss and this is how I see things headed lately. Am I out of step?

In that case I welcome censorship with open arms.

All this is so hilariously hypocritical coming from someone with an elf flashing his ass as a sig! Fuck I don't have anything to say, your lack of cohesive ethics does it for me! :lol:
