    Ok,so here is the deal..I`m sick and tired of manually creating accounts. I`m gonna create them with catch all domain. My question is this"does anyone know..if I use these fake accounts to rate/fav a video which has been uploaded form my good yt account..can that have repercussions on the video itself(I know the fake accounts will get banned)...even if it`s a legit account? Thanks.

    i've had 1300 accounts banned in one day [thanks bape] & all the ratings/favs stuck the comments got dropped. All my videos are still ranking top 10's for there keywords, so at this stage it seems to be a pretty safe option.

    It looks like they don't drop the databse tables for users rating/favs actions when banning accounts. I can't tell if the views calls from these accounts was drop because i don't rank videos by using views, so maybe they stick as well?
