YouTube Should Substantiate Complaints before Suspending Accounts

Grievance

Recently, YouTube suspended the account of the James Randi Educational Foundation. This kind of treatment is becoming a trend for high-profile YouTube users who are outwardly critical of religion. We hope that YouTube will resist the sanctimonious outcry of religious fundamentalists (or any other idealogical affiliation) who already exert undue influence on government policy, television, and radio. Before suspending user accounts, determine if the complaints are substantiated and not founded on irrelevant, reactionary principles. Moreover, users who abuse the flagging system, or complain without just cause, should be penalized.

Response

Chad Hurley was not sent an email because Jim Safley did not provide a work-related email address for him. Sometimes this is because public figures, including government officials, do not share their work-related email addresses with the public. If you think that a public figure should offer a work-related email address to the public, please contact them and submit another petition.
