They probably just didn't know the role that Thunderf00t has on the YT atheist community, or some thought he was a creationist. At best, they're just good at identifying flaws, without regards to the subject's feelings (I actually like this objectivity).

Now, the community on Youtube is very talented, and I believe it is one of the most important avenue for de-converting people. I've seen many of those stories, and I recommend the series 'Deconversion: The God Concept' by Evid3nc3 (it is really moving). Also, KingHeathen's request for deconversion stories has been met with over 80 replies.
People who are actually curious about the debate get to see both sides of the stories, something they might not get the chance in real life. Of course, the sane/smart/funny people tend to be on the side of the atheists (coughlin666 & patcondell, off the top of my head).
They will seem unorthodox compared to the users here, I admit.
However, let's be a little more appreciative of our ilk, eh?

@ esuther, Thunderf00t is like a disciple for non-theists on Youtube. He uploads many educational videos on science, and is a strong critic of creationists.

Please actually check out his channel. You'll really like him.
