YouTube is slowly shifting away from 'You' tube to 'Whatever we want we show you' tube.

This might have something to do with it:

Have seen a couple of Youtube vids pulled because of copyright issues recently. Perfectly right to do so, even though it is annoying that I can't watch how so-and-so played whatever-it-was any more, if the copyright owner complains that consent to post on Youtube wasn't given.

It's not really foil-hat stuff. I've used the Internet for more than 12 years and I couldn't believe the amount of stuff I found when I did a search once on my various username. A company a relative works for does Internet searches on all job applicants prior to interviewing them.

As for the mobile phone thing, a guy who allegedly murdered his wife and daughter a month or so ago and dumped the bodies not far from where I live was caught as a result of his mobile phone location record: he said he was in one place but his phone connections to cell towers showed he was elsewhere.

Noooo! When are people going to learn that the aluminum foil hat is only designed to help the government listen in to your thoughts? Stop the aluminum foil hats!

On the Effectiveness of Aluminium Foil Helmets: An Empirical Study
It has long been suspected that the government has been using satellites to read and control the minds of certain citizens. The use of aluminum helmets has been a common guerrilla tactic against the government's invasive tactics [1]. Surprisingly, these helmets can in fact help the government spy on citizens by amplifying certain key frequency ranges reserved for government use. In addition, none of the three helmets we analyzed provided significant attenuation to most frequency bands.
