Unfortunately most people don't consider fish to be living creatures, just because you can't cuddle with them it apparently means that they have no feelings... Its sick and sad...

That's a good idea. I wonder if youtube would even care? I guess the best thing to do is to keep flagging all those horrible videos.

YouTube only listens to big names or corporations and takes videos down that infringe copyrights or other "blablabla". They don't give a damn of animal abuse. And I agree with Miharu, a lot of people think that fish don't have feelings or needs like mammals do. I think that's just SO wrong. Millions of years ago we humans were also fish-like creatures. We evolved to the beings we are now, but, we are cousins to fish as we are to chimps. Why can't we all live in peace and harmony? I HATE that humans believe they're some sort of "god" and can decide the lives of other creatures. (Sigh...) The world is soo sick. And then people complain about earthquakes, hurricanes, etc... mother nature is doing something about all this **** and trying to make humans much more humble.

I swear that youtube doenst even bother to read the flags because even with the number of flags I know that video got it still wasnt removed. The only way to remove a video like that is if a large enough group of people got behind it to cause an impact youtube's worth. I decided a long time ago not to get a youtube account in protest but it kinda went unnoticed.

I bet if all or most of us at Betta fish sent in emails or a grand email or something it might make at least 1 video go away...

Yah, we should do something. Although, I told my friend male bettas fight, and he said we should have a battle royal of 1,000 male bettas. I told him that is animal abuse, and then he said "Fish aren't animals, they are amphibians" He's not exactly the smartest. I don't know if he actually meant the fighting though, but I know he really beleived the second part! HaHa! A group email would be great! And we can make one for petco, wal-mart, etc....
