Post YouTube and it unwillingness to deal with the issues

A few months I was flagged by YouTube for mirroring a video made by ThetaOmega. The video was a parody of the hate filled Fred Phelps announcement of God punishing Australlia. I was never able to get a response from YouTube or anyone else for that matter. I still have the strike against me. I stopped posting videos to YouTube shortly after that and started posting on Vimeo. This was long before dprjpones decided to use filmrookie.

Since that time I have tried to find a way to resolve my issue with YouTube and tried to shine more a light on others suffering from similar issues. When DonExodus2 mentioned going to the BBB(Better Business Bureau) and filing a complaint I did. YouTube did nothing. They have an F rating with the BBB.

They opened up a Help Forum, which is little more than a joke. I posted a thread in there which djarm67, desertphile,shanedk, and others have posted in an attempt to alert YouTube to the votebot issue. Alas nothing has been done.

I have faxed the corporate office and addressed the fax to the chief of engineering at Google (which owns YouTube). Still there has been no response.

I found out YouTube had a blog when I found out they were censoring the Iran videos. I wrote e mails to the editors of the blog. Nothing happened.

I have made phone calls to YouTube and tried to get past the receptionist to speak to someone at YouTube. She explained that no one will talk to you, because nothing is done over the phone.

I even spoke to my friend who works for Google in Zurich and he basically confirmed everything we knew YouTube does not watch the videos.

I have watched Thunderf00t, dprjones, DonExodus2, Desertphile, and so many others come under attack from bots, creationists , and YouTube losers who have nothing better to do with their time.

I do not know what else to do. I do not believe YouTube will do anything without a more direct course of action such as a appeal to stockholders and advertisers.

Does anyone have any ideas or even better a way to contact YouTube?

Well, here's one way.

1. Fly to San Francisco Airport. I have no idea where you live, but that will cost somewhere between 100 and 1000 dollars depending on your location, airline, and travel date.

2. Take the BART - Direction: Pittsburg / Bay Point to the San Bruno Stop

3. Walk south to Route 380 West and follow it west fro 3/4 of a mile by foot until you reach Cherry St.

4. Walk south on Cherry St. to 901 Cherry St., or the first huge-mongous building on your right.

5. Walk into that building, and demand to see the man in charge.

6. Before you're carrying off in handcuffs, be sure to get your point across.
