    Great site! Curious – why did RedBull make you remove your “old walking machines compilation” video?

    There was a few seconds edited from a commercial clip. I challenged it, thinking Red Bull was an energy drink company. They have a Red Bull Media company, and I lost my challenge. I edited out the few seconds using the youtube editor, but it must keep the footage and just bypass it when one views it. youtube also make it very difficult for you to contact them. They also use ‘robotic’ replies i.e. no human sees the emails unless it is a big issue. Frustrating to say the least. Live and learn.
