Easily, 5 people/idiots can have voted that up while he had that page open. And then the number is updated when he rates the entry, making it +7-1+5 = +11. Makes absolutely _zero_ sense that they would "cheat" triggered by someone rating it negatively. And how on earth do they know what entries are pro one way or another?(and don't tell me they have people monitoring this)

How about "Welcome to the world where you should not make YouTube videos about stuff you clearly know NOTHING about."

That, of course, does not mean that Yahoo does not have a majority of idiot/republican/puma users.

But this video is still made up of pure ignorance.

If you recommended this, I have a relative in Nigeria with a spectacular financial opportunity just for you.

8. IMO the video is useless as it nearly impossible at best to see the point.
The video moves around too much and it is not clear to read.
