Yep, i'm a firm believe in freedom of speech. If there were abusive comments towards MAB, then i'm sure before too long that comment would be marked as spam so people will know that person is trolling.
I don't see how it could benefit Mike from taking vids down every 2 minutes when You Tube is probably THE best way of getting your music across to big numbers- many of whom i suspect wouldn't have been fans before watching a vid.
If there are abusive comments then leave it up to the other YT members who like the vid to put a "Thumbs Down" next to their comment and mark as spam. Taking videos down is unfair to fans of MAB as well as Mike.
If it's a piss-taking vid with a malicious undertone then sure, take it down but if it's a parody in good fan made by a fan or a live vid which shows Mike in a good light, then keep it up. It could only help Mike broaden his fan base which surely is a good thing- whether it infringes copyright or not. This is an ART FORM we're talking about, right?

If it had stayed up a little while longer I would have checked the video and deleted offensive comments (I already did with one)
To be honest, I'm probably the person who's least bothered on the whole board I did it to help promote MAB and Metal Method in a new way that would hopefully appeal to viewers. Deleting videos such as this one is just taking away potential new MM buyers or MAB fans.
Again, if anyone wants the video, theres a megaupload video on a previous page in this thread
