So what was this horrible video?  It was Kendrick Moxon interrupting a journalist in Clearwater trying to talk to Dennis Erlich, an ex-Scientologist. That’s it.  It’s been on youtube for years. Why was it pulled? youtube graciously doesn’t say.  How can you complain?  Not very easily.  I’m putting the video on to vimeo.com now.

See if you can figure out which youtube community guideline I broke, here:

This is discussion of how youtube is treating critics of Scientology…

I just happened to run across a youtube video of a girl who shows how to make synthetic dreads…

THIS video was banned!  I challenge any rational person to explain how this video violates either the Terms of Service OR the Community Guidelines of youtube!  It’s completely ridiculous. Youtube has lost its mind.

    I wouldn’t be too harsh on YouTube. I think they’re just in the condition of forced laziness that comes from being massively outnumbered by their audience. They don’t have the time to actually deal with the situation, amongst the thousand other running situations on YouTube, so if they get a bunch of bullshit legal threats from Moxon or whatever they just have to quickly do something & hope the problem goes away.

    So I guess if we want to win, we have to be the squeakier wheel. It shouldn’t be too hard; we just need to find a strategy to organize Anonymous around and we can get a lot noisier than CoS’s little bawwwing.
