The first video I made was in 2007 called VVebcam, but YouTube deleted it, because I had violated their terms because of my description on the video, not the content of the actual video. It had this huge list of words that are like “default” Internet spam words like tits, vagina, nude, Britney Spears, KFC, Taco Bell, etc.”

Vimeo or Youtube?

Youtube because always more comments/discussion and people get really real with hate/like and dont hold back. vimeo is like flickr where there are not many comments and the comments are always positive. its more interesting to hear about how much people hate what you do and also more fun to respond back with a rude goofy threat than thank the peasant for the +1 view”
