The Banned Video

Six months ago I posted a rather informative video on YouTube. I had even read the Terms of Service to make sure that I wasn't contravening any regulations. Unbeknownst to me, there was also a Community Guideline file tucked away somewhere, and someone didn't like it. As a result, my YouTube account had a black mark for 6 months. I complained, and never even got an answer.

I am now back in "Good Standing". But I'm putting my vid here, so all that work doesn't go to waste.

And to tweak YouTube a bit.

Don't touch overhead wires. (14 MB wmv file)

Needs more Benny Hill music
(nah, just kidding that'd be slack...)


Considering all the jihad videos on youtube of people in Shitbaghistan blowing up soldiers it's bizzarre they would ban you for this.

Yeah, it was a mizzery to me, too.

Looks like hopping CityRail from Artarmon to Newcastle will be a piece of cake. Don't know if I'll be able to sleep tonite, I'm pretty stoked.

Cheers,

Jump off at Cardiff station and give me a call from there. I'll come and pick you up. Yeah, it's an easy train ride all the way from Central! Very scenic too, you'll enjoy it I think.

Flash Bang Wallop.

Who knows what sensations that poor beggar felt
*bang*

and out.

Folks don't realise that th higher the volts, the less you actually have to touch to ground.

Overhead supply at 1k5 DC? I always thought overheads were AC, the UK ones are. Only DC in the UK is 600v or so, supplied via rails.

How does a snuff movie taken at that distance an poor definition cross community guidelines? It's not as though there weren't opportunities enough to stop the playback.

I'm afraid I found watching a frame by frame description of someone die quite quite disturbing.

But, then again, I don't even like watching animals die.

Hence the big screaming letters saying what the video is about, and "Viewer Discretion Advised"... It's not like you didn't know what was coming.

True. You did put a big warning up.
I should have listened.

But, these days, the "Viewer Discretion Advised" is usually put there in jest. Heck, you put that same warning up on puns.

I'm stupid. I should have known you actually meant what you said.
