YouTube accounts of Scientology critics suspended

>>Digg this article.

Two well-known critics of Scientology have had their user accounts on the video sharing website YouTube suspended. The YouTube accounts of both Tory Christman and Mark Bunker were suspended this week. In an exclusive statement to Wikinews, YouTube explained why accounts are suspended, but did not specifically state why these particular accounts were suspended. Neither Christman nor Bunker received a notice or explanation from YouTube as to why their accounts were suspended.

On Tuesday April 15, Tory Christman a former Scientologist and volunteer for their Office of Special Affairs, and known as ToryMagoo44 on YouTube, had her account suspended for unknown reasons. On Wednesday, after complaints to YouTube from other YouTube users and from members of the group Anonymous, Christman's account was restored.

Wikinews confirmed Friday that Mark Bunker known as 'xenutv1' on YouTube, a television journalist and critic of Scientology, had his user account suspended. This is the second time that Bunker's account was suspended. He was formerly known as 'xenutv' when his account was suspended the first time.

"I want to see the complaint and on what grounds did YouTube suspend my account. I have done nothing on that account that would violate any of their terms and my videos and account should not have been pulled. The only caveat to this is my first account "XenuTV" was suspended a while back for a Steven Colbert video I had from Comedy Central. At that time I created XenuTV1 and according to YouTube's terms you can only have one account. Any time I have ever been asked to remove something that may violate their terms for copyright materials, I comply immediately. It would be wrong and a misuse of power to pull my account because of this lone loophole in their terms," said Bunker exclusively to Wikinews.

Obviously not only is Youtube a bunch of gutless cowards but also the Scientologist cult members have been threatening them as well (I'm surprisd that the OSA troll Terryeo hasn't posted here yet).

What we need to do is what we did when YouTube took down the warning to scientology from Anonymous and everyone start reposting WBM videos everywhere through multiple screen names on YouTube, either that or we get together and down YouTube over and over till they reinstate his account.

Scientology has been advertising heavily on Google and Youtube lately which means they're paying them a shitload of money. I can't help but think that might have an effect on which side Google/Youtube takes.

Centurian, it would work to re-upload all of his videos multiple times while asking them to reinstate his account, it worked for the "Message to Scientology" video, but it is wrong to attack Youtube via dDoS, not to mention impossible.

Youtube is owned by Google. Trying to dDoS Google is like trying to flood the hoover dam with a thimble.

I for one will make a stand for Xenutv. It is a matter of principle.

Sure we can upload Youtube with WBM videos elsewhere (and probably should). However it means, C0$ schoolyard bully tactics have some effect. And I for one will bow down to some bully.

You know, you don't have to saturate googles internet connection to make a point to youtube and the CoS. All you have to do is saturate the human moderators.

It is neither wrong NOR impossible to down YouTube. This is the internet and Anonymous OWNS it!

First of all I would like to say excellent blog!
I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear
your thoughts prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing my
mind in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing
however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted
just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
Appreciate it!
