    I think the average YouTube was confused when they saw it had 1k+ likes and only 301 views. Then, you'd also see those comments 'like if you're the 301st viewer.'

    Simple, yet smart, fix on their part. Should keep the whiners quite. :)

    Does anyone know when they added this? Must have been quite recently.

    It depends, some of my vids cross 301 mark within 6 hours and some take about 36 hours. So Youtube is the boss, they do what they want :p
