I didn't mind this, Dear YouTube,
but I did mind that you suddenly closed the account down a few days after this message. What's the logic behind handing out a warning notice one day and closing down the next? I mean, why the warning? Not cool!

Kom på en sak!

Är det inte du som är mr Block?
eller var kanske är bättre :-)!

Mr Block är blockad, säger man så??

Ålväjs lokk ...

Men om du blir disäjblad, ställer jag mig frågan hur länge??
För är det någon som använder sig andras visor så ...

P-E Fronning said...

"Hrmffff!!" är ordet dä, se. Ja, MrBlock är satt i blockad eller lockout...

Visst, om MrJ har otur så åker han dit också. Det trista är ju det där med den värdelösa varningen. Utvisad vid första gula kortet??!! Hur skulle det se ut på fotbollsplanen?

Jag hade ju inte så fasligt mycket uploadat och är mest ledsen för att alla playlistorna och samlingen är borta.

Men som du säger "Ålväjs lokk"...

oh no. what was it for? the end of youtube's fun times is near.

Let's face it YouTube is a pretty hypocritical site. It's not as if they don't know they'd be nothing without copyrighted material!! But they are not the only place for videos ;)

If you feel, like I do, that youtube disabled your account unfairly, I encourage you to

1. See the video "Big Brother, Big Business", previously shown on cable tv but available now on the web, to find out how Google tracks all users and keeps tabs on all your searches FOREVER to track information on YOU.

2. Use another search engine, whenever possible. Use yahoo, ask, msn. Every time you use google, they get a higher rating, more hits, more money and get to be a bigger company... and a Bigger Brother.

Remember, boycott Google on a regular basis.

1. I did watch it and it was interesting. I guess nothing really came as a surprise. Most things were heard of before. But the development IS scary and should be investigated and monitored by each goverment. Maybe even the UN (Super Big Brother) should get involved if they aren't already.

2. It is certainly something to consider. At the same time you ask me to watch this film on... YOUTUBE which as I have heard was bought by ... GOOGLE. Am I right??

P-E Fronning said...

It's a shame there's some much good things on YouTube. It's hard to boycott it, right?

I just found out they closed my account, permanently, I mailed them asking for an explaination... nothing, I guess dont bother dealing with simple human beings.

Hey guess what, there are other video sites thata are better than youtube

Dear Anonymous:
Do, indeed, let us know which ones you think are better. Thanks.

De stängde ner mitt nu i veckan

de sicka en varing och en minut serare var mitt konto borta

P-E Fronning said...

Jeff: Tråkigt att höra att du också drabbats! Jag har skapat ett nytt konto så att jag åtminstone kan samla lite favoriter. Tyvärr är YT så j*vla stora att det är svårt att bojkotta helt. Jag använder DailyMotion också, vilket jag tycker är bra men ingenting är ju så stort som YT. Men det heter ju att "storleken är inte..."

I was "permanently disabled" by You Tube yesterday after running anti-spy ware from Norton and Lavasoft. Since all I watch on You tube are music videos and since I don't up load stuff, I suspect that they got mad that I removed their spy apparatus.

P-E Fronning said...

Are you serious??

johny radio said...

i got permanently disable with no warning and no explanation. back up your videos!

P-E Fronning said...

Crap!
Good advise, Johny...

Remember to back up all your videos. And just open a new account with a different email address. This is what I did when my account was deleted. I was up and running in 5mins with my new account. Simple

I'm with you and got the same. I had no trouble deleting the video they were talking about but was givin no time to act.
I had personal videos on there, just simple home videos of my lil boy....but i did have those stored on my computer at the time, and due to youtubes misshandling i've lost all that....
