My mate has been tryin to show me some good videos on you tube about the government, and tests and 9/11 and related content, but they all dissapear sayin terms violated or just plain video no longer exists? What the hells up with youtube? I personally believe the only use for youtube is watching cars do skids apart from that its a giant cesspool of crap!

Also on my photobucket account the image that i have on my avatar is gone saying terms and use violation?? what the hell? Stoked i had to move it to ATS anyway... Maybe we could share some real good media sites like youtube but without the pathetic censorship that sellout has allowed. Any thoughts experiences?

maybe TPTB is actually watching and monitoring youtube now. It will be a bit harsh if they did, because now they lost their freedom to post.

It sucks that the WMG is still watching youtube videos. they never let others make cool videos.

Or more likely that Youtube is part of TPTB, considering it is owned by Google.

For photobucket I never understand how some of my pictures get the axe, and probably never will; but oh well world keeps on spinning in my eyes and I merely move on.

As for youtube, I went to wiki (not the best place to go to when here at ATS I know) but it pretty much broke down the Terms of Service in a way, and I believe these are a few parts that may explain why the video was pulled.

You will not submit falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage YouTube or any third party.

YouTube will remove all content considered inappropriate or that violates somebody’s intellectual copyrights. Anybody who repeats such activity may also be denied access to YouTube.

Then again I've seen somethings that have truly violated the Terms of Service via Youtube, that would in terms violate viacom or some other companies license for said material. So at this point I don't know if what I have posted may be something as a viable answer, but I feel it may give some indication as to why it was pulled and how those who pulled the video may use their Terms of Service in a way to show that it was against it.

IMO, as sites gain popularity they get stricter and garnish more attention from high power people. Youtube used to allow people to post almost anything. As soon as lawyers and government got involved in the process, they pretty much had to linit what can and can't be posted.

I expect the same to happen to ATS in the near future.

Those videos removed have been found guilty of thoughtcrime. They do lay out their terms of service clearly and if youtube deems it inappropriate, that'll do. Unfortunately, you can't expect any large company to not have an agenda.

Yea exactly, I mean a few of the videos were official experiment videos, like the one where they get i whole lotta people into a room and they are all actors but one, they start asking different questions, slowly getting easier and easier until the subject definatly knows the answer but everyone else continues to say the wrong answer and he follows. Maaaaaaaaaaaa (couldn't help it) haha but yea dunno why that woulda been removed?

Also i can understand photobucket removing porn and pictures of dead people or something, but why my avatar?
