YouTube is a commercial entity. Its merely "bad business" when they get called on their unbalanced censorship. Those of us familiar with the company before it was swallowed up by Google clearly see the distinction. Its no longer about expression, but about the bottom-line, which is fine as that is what it is, they just shouldn't represent it otherwise. Richard Dawkins is very gracious as well he can be in the individual case, however the reversal of their decision probably has more to do with the exposure it was given, rather than their any grander principle.
