The content on you tube is the copyright of the person who put it there. whether that is a person recording their own home movies,
conversations in french
or whether someone has illegall ripped and illegally uploaded content to a video sharing site. (not everything that appears on TV is actually the copyright of the TV station. - so uploading clips of TV shows is actually illegal as well.

we are reasonably strict on breaking the law and providing links to articles on how to break the law simply because this site has lost association with advertising networks in the past for helping people with hacking/breaking copyright etc... (as we all know from previous posts, this site has a lot of overhead costs associated with the hosting and can't afford to loose it's only source of revenue besides davids own pockets).

whilst I know that you were only trying to help. and you did provide the help with good intentions, it was still illegal to rip content from you tube.

that is also why your signature has been changed since you linked to a post on a forum about how to rip videos from you tube in your signature...
now this is all fair and dandy.. but I couldn't help but notice.. a mod removed the link on his post.. just left it blank.. he didn't say a damned thing.. what was badger supposed to think? if the mod had said it was a violation or something, i'm sure he would have stepped down (he seems like a very reasonable guy) and we would have had no issues... instead he was left in the dark, not very impressive mod work. (i'm not directing this towards you root)

Badger was not banned right off of the bat, instead his post was removed. Without knowing why, he made the link available again, and thus got banned. A little work from a mod, and this could have been avoided.

It could have been avodied or whats done is done and we can go on with our lives?

Just fyi.. You cant PM badger and I dont know why. And I wasnt about to make a thread over it so I gave him two days.

I deleted his post and in spite I guess he put his post in his sig.

He knew what I was doing, but evidently didnt care. So two days for him..

Well of coarse we can get over this and move on, but it should atleast be thought about for future events... atleast in my opinion.
