    Hmm. A couple of questions...

    1) Does YouTube ever go into an account an actually remove a bunch of comments that were made on a video if they think that the comments were just "boosters"?

    I just had this happen to one of mine that has had Tube Increaser/Tube Blaster Pro/outside-outsourced boosts/outsourced Diggs and actual whitehat campaigns run on it for the last 3 weeks. This may be a pretty newb, routine question, but I have never seen it happen before. I have only seen the boosting accounts get flagged/suspended. I have never seen actual comments removed from a video.

    2) If you make a video private on YouTube just temporarily and then bring it back to "public" status, does this damage the ratings/searchability of the video in YouTube? I had to do this for one day but then when I brought it back, it was no longer popping up in YouTube's search results... not evne with directly searching the EXACT name. Did I screw myself here?

    Any input on these Q's is welcome. Sorry for the newb questions.

    Cheers all!
