Here is a video from Renetto, who is one of the most prominent YouTube celebrities. Almost from the beginning he was in the center of a discussion about a YouTube community and inspired discussion about its future. Before Google acquisition YouTube staff said many times that they watch his videos closely, and met with him couple of times to talk about community issues. Now he is one of YouTubers posting angry videos about, as he says "notYouTube founders or the workers and employees that started there a year ago and had a dream of everybody being on YouTube", but about "some pricks at Google".

Philipp you probably meant "prick at Google" not "prick at Youtube", right? He makes a very strong distinction between those two and claims that it was the YouTube staff who loved the user, and featured him many times, and it was someone from Google who deleted his account.

For me this distinction is the main issue. I don't know if he's right (probably not...), but keeping the community happy was a huge issue when Google bought YouTube. Than, some community leaders, including Rennetto, stepped forward, and said that everything is ok and that Google needs a chance. Now it seems that at least some people starts to view Google as a soulless corporation, that is responsible for all bad actions that are hurting the community.

Sorry, I watched the video one more time and he actually said "pricked ad YouTube", but than corrected (?) himself and said "a prick attorney at Google" with a big accent on "Google".

Some background info: Renetto's children posted a video on his account, couple of months ago, without his knowledge, so the terms of service was clearly broken. In opposite too that the deleted account was registered by an adult, boys dad, and they edited the videos together, so every video was seen by an adolt before being posted.

I wonder if posting videos of your toddler is also against the term of service...

If these kids are under 13 why are they on the internet and why are they posting videos. They want to grow up to fast. Get rid of em'.

I think we need to address the subject of the internet as a tool that increases freedom (and thus sometimes maturity) of teenagers.

> GROW UP!!!!!!!

You are 10, ain't you? At least you sound like it. He did all the videos with his father, who obviously accepted and encouraged his work. I think this could be a great experience for a young person. I work as a tutor for a boy who is also 12 and I teach him how to use various possibilities that Internet gives, how to write XHTML and CSS, how to program in PHP... if someone want to learn new things we shouldn't forbid him. And the passion of the banned boy makes mi think that he is really a great kid and we will hear about him in the future.
