    Corey,
    I hate the changes in YT as well. But in order for them to survive, they need the changes. 2009 will be a record loss of about 440 million dollars for them. WHY? Because operating costs for bandwidth alone is close to 400 million dollars. total cost of operation this year = 700 million. total projected rev = 260 million.

    cutting traffic (costs) and increasing profit is their goal. Otherwise, they might as well lay down and die or become a non-profit and hope to get 400 million a year in donations - lol

    in actuality they are changing their business model out of absolute necessity. i hated the changes with a passion and hated GOOGLE for this until I learned the facts.

    now i hate the changes but understand why google is taking this direction - knocking out spammers minimizes costs. forefronting 'paying' hulu type content makes money - i get it....
