    Today 2 videos that I know of got removed from YouTube. Probably a lot more.

    They have been boosted with low retention views from facebook.

    Anyone else who got their video removed today?

    Youtube does this to look like they're doing something.

    These videos make them money AND add to the popularity-image of the site. I wouldn't doubt there's a guy being paid to randomly shut down videos for the heck of it.

    From what I know is depending on how it is flagged you can get this email.
    Then again I have only experienced with clients using IM videos.

    Were the videos with "legitimate" content?
