While it might not be immediately obvious how to download flash videos, the answer is a simple google search away. Like the tube, videos can be downloaded here as well. We've taken a couple of measures to make it a little more difficult, but anyone with a cache viewing tool would be able to get the videos.
As for the attitude stuff, I would moderate more but my focus has been primarily on code. I don't really read the forums like I did years ago. That said I really would like to see the rule I updated in February being followed more often.
I guess you could say this is my pet peeve as an admin. I don't care how many times a topic comes up, if it bothers you to see a newbie post a topic that came up a couple weeks ago and you can't be bothered to help just ignore the thread. I haven't really done it in the past, but I'm am not above sending out warnings and temp bans if I personally come across members alienating new users. It doesn't matter if the new user may be "asking for it" when there are stickies and other topics that explain their problem. Point those topics out to them, teach them how to be better members of the community.If a member (most likely a newbie) posts to the wrong forum, makes a duplicate thread, or overlooks a sticky, you as a knowing member must 1) answer their question or direct them to a suitable topic that covers their question and then 2) point out which forum is the most appropriate one to post to about such items, if applicable. A forum moderator will (most likely) soon move the thread.
But like Jasper said, the administration can only do so much and given that some of us are focused on other areas of the site, we really need everyone to have a hand in helping out.
