Youtube continues to bite...

Well, I thought previous reports were exaggerated, but I experienced being blocked from commenting on someone's videos. It was on the Bill Maher Jesus Camp video too, so I can't imagine that the poster of the video was bothered by what I said. Is it just that a bunch of nutcases all get together and click the "Report as Spam" links on your messages?

Sigh.

Well, some muslims have admitted to doing things like this.

Strange bedfellows indeed.

I'm wondering if it's about time to boycott youtube. That'll get their attention faster than anything else.

A boycott would hurt the good, prominent atheists on the site (like CapnOAwesome) so it's not a good idea.
