    I don't know what's going on with youtube. I refreshed a video 1000 times since yesterday, and the views counter didn't even move.
    Could they be experiencing some technical problems with the counters ? I mean, how complicated that counter can be ?

    Maybe they are changing the way the views are registered or something like that, but in my opinion the number of views is not causing any problems to the network.

    The views are registered, it just takes some time before the counter change.

    This is a well known fact. YouTube uses a number of filtering algorithms to ignore bot traffic, proxies, self-refreshing, etc.

    lmfao, dude...
    all that means is that someone used a YT service like enhanceviews.net and added likes to the video.
