Google/ Youtube are 'gameifying' volunteer takedown requests.

From bad to worse. Youtube's 'innapropriate content' system is already garbage, and now they're going to get a bunch of morons to become their thought-police in exchange for FunBux.

The video seems to be going down well. But the thing i've learned is that once the Creatives get an idea like this they never fully back down. Even if they back down from the negative response on this attempt, they'll keep trying to repackage the garbage until it becomes palatable or slips through unnoticed.
