Muslims Secretly Organizing to Dominate YouTube
A reader who wishes to remain anonymous has forwarded a YouTube message he received, from a Muslim YouTube member who’s organizing a private group to promote Islamic videos and suppress criticism of Islam:

to all muslim brothers and sisters please read
Our Islamic videos will not get full attention unless they come in the top ranked videos in youtube. For this purpose we all Muslims have to rate the videos to 5 stars and have to add them to our favorites. This will not be achieved if we Muslim Youtubers are scattered, i.e., one muslim rating one video and other muslim rating another. So we have to be highly organized. We will do a massive campaign of focusing to rate a single video collectively at once, so that it can show up on the top videos at least in the “Today’s top videos” list.
Doing this job in an open broadcast or in a public group is not a good idea. So it should be done in a private group. I have made the private group with the name: Burn the Boats. The group URL is in accordance to its goal as:
...Do not send this message to any person who you doubt if he is Muslim or not. Any brother/sister who wants an invitation to the group, he can send me a short personal message.
OMFG!!! And the group, we're told has 131 members. 131!!! That's 20 more members than Cowboy Troy's Hick Chick Video Contest group!!!!! That's two-thirds as many members as the White Castle Craver Video Contest group!!!!!!!! "So this isn’t just a couple of people in their basements," LGF warns us, ominously.
