    I read the other day where someones YouTube channel had been hacked and given a very large amount of views so that YouTube would then deleted the video for breaching the terms. This a truly a strange world we live in.

    Well, it's not going to stop the perverse figures, but it's good to know someone is making a stand.

    Not sure what is worse: the people who sell views or the people who buy views! It´s so difficult to interpret and explain the ethical crisis we live in to our children....

    Nice find!

    I hope there is also a mechanism to prevent you from a "DOS" (Denial of Service) attack - I can imagine a case when someone (your competitor?) setting up a bot to "watch" your channel videos which will eventually lead to your account being suspended...
