opinion ethics-a Question

If someone leaves you feedback that while the text seems to indicate they liked your vid, thier scores manage to knock you out of the top ten, is it ethical to leave yourself a feedback to counteract it?

Considering only ten of the FREAKING GAJILLIONS of videos are rated as the "top videos," I'd have to say it'd be incredibly stupid to leave yourself feedback just to push up your video. And, yes, people would most likely look down upon you if the <I>only</I> reason you reviewed your video was to push up its scores.[/i]

i thought so too, leaving feedback for yourself other than creators comments would be dumb. forgive my moment of weakness. it was cool to be in the list for a bit tho :)

Actually, if you are truly honest with your opinion, I don't have a problem with someone reviewing their own vid. Just make sure it's not all 10's. =P

Don't review your own vids; You'll go blind! :shock:

If I give all 1's to my videos, would _that_ be unethical?

Not if you really feel they deserve it (which they don't!). ^_^
