WATCH *BRAND NEW* YU-GI-OH THE ABRIDGED SERIES AT THESE URLs:
YOUTUBE BANNED LITTLEKURIBOH. AGAIN.
It's ironic that the videos are now hosted on revver as they are VERY strict on copyright violations, having a peer review process before each video is accepted. Hear that, youtube? YOU. FUCKING. FAIL.
YU-GI-OH! THE ABRIDGED SERIES IS LEGAL ON THE GROUNDS THAT IT IS PROTECTED UNDER FAIR USE SATIRE LAWS. IF YOU INSIST THAT HIS SHOW IS INFRINGING COPYRIGHT, I SUGGEST YOU READ UP ON THE FUCKING LAW. YOU'LL HAVE DONE SO ONE (1) MORE TIMES THAN YOUTUBE HAS EVER BOTHERED TO.
I called it. They unbanned LittleKuriboh and never issued him an apology, and I BEGGED for you people to continue to press the issue else he would be banned again in 1 month. Here it is, exactly 1 month later, and LK gets the boot. AGAIN. THIS time I want you people to fucking flood youtube's inbox and phone with everything you have, UNTIL they issue a PUBLIC APOLOGY. Call Upper Deck Entertainment of Europe, manufacturers of the Yu-Gi-Oh! card games as they are in FULL support of LK. Tell 4Kids that youtube is deliberately misrepresenting them, giving users the false impression that 4Kids is flagging these videos, when THIS IS IN FACT FALSE!
You can't donate money to LittleKuriboh, but you can donate TIME AND EFFORT to a worthy cause of forcing this site to operate as it should. The current priorities are WAY THE FUCK OUT OF WHACK, where if a video is flagged enough times (and your name isn't LonelyGirl, smosh, or LisaNovaSpamBot), your video is removed without merit.
FORCE YOUTUBE TO DO THEIR JOB. IT IS NOT THE REGULAR USER'S RIGHT TO FLAG A VIDEO FOR COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT UNLESS THEY THEMSELVES OWN THE COPYRIGHT.
Since youtube e-mail server is CONVENIENTLY down, call them. Call them. Call them. If they give you the runaround, keep trying. Someone will be stupid enough to actually forward you to the correct department.

I want you to flood their god damn mailbox. Flood their god damn voice mail. This bullshit ends now. Youtube is one of the top sites on the internet, AND IT NEEDS TO START TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR IT.
Oh, look at the response I got from youtube. They took the liberty of adding "LittleKuriboh" as a spam word, so any questions about him will be blocked.

I don't watch this show at all, but I flipped it on a few days ago, and needless to say, there were lines in the show that reminded me of LittleKuriboh so much, that it's become GLARINGLY OBVIOUS that 4Kids knows of his works and have a great deal of respect for him. ALL OF THESE CLIPS WERE PULLED FROM ONE EPISODE.
Before you guys post dumbass messages like, "omg leik 4kids is so lame they are so desperate!" Come on. This is subtle self-defacing humor, and nothing more. Kids that watch the show aren't going to catch on. Producers aren't going to catch on. They're just possibly trying to capture the effect that LittleKuriboh has with his series. People that love Yu-Gi-Oh love the abridged series. People that HATE Yu-Gi-Oh.. LOVE the abridged series. If you're finding something to bitch about on this harmless video that's trying something to appease some people with sick senses of humor, you've got some serious common sense issues. 4kids, or at least some of the writers, is giving respect to LittleKuriboh. Please see that. Even after I have said this, 500 of you little fuckwits have went and said stupid shit anyway.
Edit 8/7/07. I'm not making any more of these. I watched the next three episodes and they sucked out loud. This episode was a fluke.
LK's site has little traffic, his videos get only TEN PERCENT for new videos, if not less of the hits he used to get on YouTube, and it's pretty much your god damn fault for your inaction to plea with YouTube to get him unbanned. Give yourself a pat on the back, you fucked up a great thing because you let your overlord YouTube fuck you in the ass and censor fair use material. Congratulations. You're a lazy piece of shit.
