YouTube Bans French AIDS Campaign PSA and Suspends Uploader's Account

Yep. C'est vrai. This AIDS commercial was too hot for YouTube - I mean, gosh, golly - Young People might see it and want to wear a condom and have sex! And we can't have that in LaLaLand can we?

I uploaded this video on my YouTube "Wallyworld"account this morning. It lasted about half and hour before being yanked and my account suspended due to "Terms of Use" violation. Thanks YouTube. Counts for nothing that I've been with you from the start, had 220 videos up, 380 Subscribers, 1.4 Million Views and been Featured twice. Not even a warning. But I guess you're pissed that I dissed you after you took down the video I posted of the "Kurdish Girl Stoned to Death in Iraq" last week. But maybe you could have like, warned me? Isn't that what they do in the workplace now? And anyway...how hypocritical of you to yank an AIDS PSA when you have heaps of hardcore PORN Uploaded daily. Just have a look at "Recently Uploaded" on YouBoob and you'll see what I mean. I guess this is just another example of the blanding out of America and the double standards. (You do of course know that L.A. is the Porn Film Capital of the World?) Anyway...

My new YouBoob account (until its suspended by the YT Gestapo) is "mylifeasavlog". Come up and see me some time. There are no videos there at the moment and my Mac is in the shop for a week but you can leave me a (cryptic) message.

Malkie,

What the fuck? Are you going to write them? Do you even want to come back? This is so fucked!

We love your stuff. You are hysterical! Insightful and thought provoking. .....(selfishly, we want you back). Will you be posting at another site?

Email me if you can so I can let other people know what's up (NutCheese, Rex, etc.)

xoxo

I am so with you! You did good to say what you said about YouTube censoring. I put on my blog Aswad horrible story with a link to the video. It's horrible, I was in shock for days, but it doesn't help not to watch this kind of brutal killing. Also because she is unfortunately only one of the many victims of this barbaric ritual.

Do you know where I can download copies of these? They're too funny and at the same time they all pull on the hearts strings as well.
