    About YouTester video test publications

    A new thing is being seen now where people are producing YouTube videos ( YouTesters ) of their private tests of anti-virus or anti-malware programs. We had a few long threads about these tests in early 2010. I finally closed the biggest one with this new policy decision.

    Now a days, anyone can publish their videos to the world using YouTube. That's great, however, it also means that anyone can proclaim themselves an expert tester and have links to their YouTube tests or channel published all over the forums. In some regards, this can be considered click-thru spam, to drive traffic to up their video view counts. In other cases, they pit two products against each other in a video version of a This vs That debate. A this versus that is no better because it is presented in a video instead of text in a forum post. So, by policy, we prefer to not publish YouTester videos here.

    Old test, old version, no consideration of roll back. Typical random flooding of files to a security software. Now you know why these youtubers tests are not admitted here as they provide little if any evidence of the good perfomance and protection of security tools.
