Today, I got called a snitch. No, not the kind with wings from HP, but the kind who tells on people.

And I suppose I am, but here's the deal:

I've been subscribed to a guy on YouTube for several years now. Many of his videos are of a personal nature. He discusses his feelings about himself and his issues with various things in his life.

I recently went looking for one of his videos so I could watch it again, only to discover that he'd taken the original down. What the reason for this is, I have no idea and it is well within his right.

However, I  did another search for the video on the off chance he may have re-uploaded it, only to find that another user had posted his video in order to share it with others.

While I appreciated the opportunity to see the video again, I felt it was only right that the original poster of the video be notified that someone else had posted one of his personal videos, even if it was coming from a good place. So I left a comment on the video asking the guy who had re-uploaded it if he had the original poster's permission. I then proceeded to leave a comment for the original poster of the video letting him know who the other user was and that his video had been re-uploaded by him and asking if the guy had permission from him.

Apparently, no permission was had, because the guy left me a reply sarcastically thanking me for "being a little snitch" to the original guy.

Anyway, my question is, did I do the right thing or not? The guy meant no harm in sharing the video, and I knew that, but I felt it was not right to share it without the owner's permission.

It bothers me being called a snitch, but I felt like I was doing the right thing at the time.

It was somewhat reminiscent of plagiarism in my mind, though the guy never claimed to be the one in the video.

So, I don't know. What's the etiquette for that sort of thing?

I left a comment for the guy apologizing and explaining why I did what I did. I let him know that I didn't bear him any ill will.

He deleted the video after he replied to my first comment.  I didn't ask him to take it down. I just asked him to check with the original poster to see if having it up was okay with him.

I feel mixed emotions about this, but it is really bugging me, so I thought I might write about it here and get some other opinions on the matter. I never meant any harm or bad feeling to stem from it, but apparently it has anyway, and that upsets me a lot.

Did I do a good thing, or was I making a big deal out of nothing?

Any thoughts on this? Please share.

Thank you.

I have discovered I really do not like it when people touch me without asking. My aunt kept rubbing my arm while she was talking to me, and all I could think was: "Get your hands off me!" What's up with me? Is that weird?

Firefox is suddenly blocking it as a possible attack site, and I have no idea as to why. It's making me paranoid. I was wondering if anyone else was having that issue. I've talked to a few other users there who are having the same problem. I'm running a full virus scan just to be on he safe side, but I really hope this is just a tech fart or something because of some ads. Ergh. Happy Birthday  to me.

1. Do you think age and maturity always correlate? I'm wondering a lot lately, because I have teenage friends who act more mature than some of the 20-30 year-olds I know.

2. Slash-legal or not legal? A post in Accio HD made me wonder. I'd hate for it not to be legal, because it's the least unhealthy coping mechanism I have, and my life has been less than stellar on almost every front lately.

3. Anyone know of any good (and simple) recipe sites/comms for a kitchen-challenged, almost obsessively health-conscious person? I need new food ideas.

You told me when I was young
That perfect love casts out fear.

Then you told me
That fear of the Lord
was a sign of righteousness.

And now you wonder why I am confused?
What's the truth?
Is God Love or is He fear?
Is He even a He?

I don't want to be afraid anymore.
I call Him LOVE.
Don't feed me your hypocrisy.
We are all worthy human beings.


I wrote this one because I struggle with the beliefs I have learned growing up. I question them all the time, and the more I question, the less sense some parts make. I can't be open with my family in real life, so I thought I'd throw this out there.
