YouTube is a website for users who want to put video clips onto the Internet or access videos that are there. Music is also accessible on YouTube. Amateurs and professionals use the site as do large commercial organisations. Anyone can download material from YouTube but only registered users can upload. The site has responded to criticism that cyberbullying is allowed there. Officially potentially offensive videos are available only to users over 18 years old but the author has downloaded adult content without having to give proof of age. However, cyberbullying still remains.

Creationist Vote bots

Creationists can't disprove the good science that explains why creationism is a load of crap. Instead, creationists used vote bots in early 2007, these vote bots will give as many as 500 one star ratings to a video in a matter of hours. Stuff that normally should have very good ratings has been hit.
