That way people can get an idea of when to make a Name & Shame video, and what they should contain, and what you should do after and so on. Following these rules will prevent you from getting into trouble with both YouTube and the Law.

  • The offenders channel, you must take the number of videos and subscribers and other information into account.

It doesn’t matter if the hater is racist or not. Racism and Death threats could land you in jail, and using copyrighted content could have your video removed.

When making a Name & Shame they should be:

  • No longer than 7 minutes
  • Made with a screen casting tool such as CamStudio
  • Must be logical about owning the hater.
  • Must be of a decent quality. Good enough so we can see the offending comment.

Once you have uploaded the video you must:

  • Block the offender
  • Leave the offending comment as proof.
  • Share it with me over twitter @illage2
  • Move on.

  • Remove the Name & Shame you made in error. 


These rules are designed for people who want to make their own.  They are here to make sure that you own the haters, without getting into trouble your self.
