Sounds like a scare tactic.

I also heard another story, where a security flaw was found in Youtube. Everyone is advised to use http://www.BodyDot.com until the flaw can be fixed.

Now the fact that I own BodyDot has no corrolation. Honest. Stop using Youtube and use my site. Now.

The good news is if you're not browsing anything dodgy, you've really got nothing to worry about.

Have fun perpetuating the non-sense folks.
