Youtube vs The Users - More YT games

“There have been a lot of shenanigans like this recently, and I've gone from regarding youtube as merely poorly managed to suspecting that they are actively evil.”

- PZ Myers on Pharyngula.

Someone else thinks as I do – YouTube’s management must be overrun by “Christians”.

At the very least, the folk at YT should be sent to mandatory courses on public relations and optimal management strategies.

Why do I say this? YT has mismanaged this entire affair. What began as a suggestion to contact YT by a means that even they might not ignore, has turned into an upload blitzkreig.

Some heads ought to roll over this mismanagement.




YT's engineers have been busy during unscheduled "maintenance"

A search for "Youtube vs The Users" (the tags on dprjones' votebot war video) yielded about 10 pages of mirror uploads a few hours ago.

Now, it yields 1 page and then this message:
"Some search results have been omitted that contain duplicates. If you like, you can repeat the search with the omitted results included"

I did not bother with the repeat because dprjones video should have appeared on page 1, and, mystery of mysteries, it didn't.

YT management playing games, no doubt.

Here are the 1 day old video's statistics as of 10 minutes ago:
