Posted 2 Questions

I posted 2 questions to the "Ask YouTube" policy event.

My Questions for "Ask YouTube" policy event

Here is the longer version of 2nd question: I have seen some of my videos get excluded from being listed in "popular," is there an intentional mechanism by which this happening? I think people should know if videos are getting handicapped and why, the partner and the public. I don't know if there is software that adds up number of flags and automatically demotes a video out of the top 100 popular for a given category. It is not made clear how it is determined, could you do so? I don't even know if there is software or why it is happening. Does it clear an editor? Could you provide partners the math used to determine position within "popular" and "top news?" If people are able to group together and false flag a video and those flags can have an effect on if a video gets to be listed in the top 100 of a given category, I think that is obviously not fair. Could you provide partners with the math if it exists? Could you give a partner channel the benefit of the doubt after it has a good total track record of about 5 years and not exclude a video from being listed if it accumulates a buck of flags? I am not sure how or why it has happened to some of my videos.

Torturing Manning

Bradley Manning is accused of being the source for documents published by WikiLeaks which exposed U.S. government crimes. "I want people to see the truth . . . regardless of who they are . . . because without information, you cannot make informed decisions as a public."
