Re: No more data on YouTube

To stress Charles' point once more, there are 100s of people on this list.
I fear none of them will get much out of speculation on the internal
architecture of Google's ( / YouTube's) Web infrastructure, and those of us
with some modest knowledge of it can't talk much about it anyway. That said
I strongly suspect the particular issue under discussion is simply a bug.
Out of scope for this group's real focus.

Let's please go back to talking about standards and schemas, rather than
about Google!
