YouTube has banned the James Randi Educational Foundation!?!?

This is insane: YouTube has become an overzealous nanny, protecting kooks from offense, now banning the eminently respectable JREF.



There's only one way to respond to this, in addition to writing letters of protest: I'm going to have to stop using YouTube at all. I'll be posting no more YouTube videos until the JREF is fully reinstated, and even then I'll be looking for alternatives (XTube? RedTube? No, I know…GodTube! (seriously, don't go to any of those, they're awful)). YouTube is ubiquitous, but it's a common technology, there are lots of sites that can implement it, and there's no need to tie ourselves to the one host that seems to be run by nervous nellies with brain rot.
