So this may seem a little "anal" of me, but I run into a lot of videos posted on spots that are broken, and for that, I report them. Still, I wonder why it's so difficult for the original poster to go back through some of the things they previously posted every once in a while (every 3 months?) to check which videos may now have a copyright claim, etc. I certainly don't mind cleaning up spots by reporting broken content, but it is very time consuming...

As a tip, and to make this job easier for people who contribute a lot, broken videos often have a gray video camera as the image instead of a still from the video -- not always, but often enough. If you don't have too much broken content in previously uploaded items and you keep up with it, it's easy to pick these out and double-check if they are in fact broken.

I'd like to hear other people's opinions. Do you think I'm just being a pain in the ass (to be blunt) about the whole thing, or do you think this is a reasonable request? My thinking is it would make the spots appear more "clean," and foster a more aesthetically pleasing experience overall when visiting the website.
