Hey, thanks for noticing eggy :)

I feel honoured of course, but I also don't like the fact user "Diabolo-boy" blatantly stole my video, so I reported it as copyright infringement.

'Tis the same with youtube and other video sharing websites, as Arron Sparks found earlier in the year. The "my videos" section should be replaced with "video's what i toook from da web, or me and ma mates avin a laff" which would seem much more appropriate.

those are the most hilarious comments I've ever read. Caused me to grin stupidly....people probably think i'm insane now. Maybe i should only check the forum when I'm at home....or atleast when i'm not in class.

Hilarious about what you can find from non-diaboloers XD.

It's like that when you get in the media. You can't only get responses from people who like with what you do. It's like that in tv and tabloids to. Just ignore ...

Digg is full of ignorant people. It is a terrible place for diabolo videos, or juggling videos in general because no one on there knows what they are talking about.

Yeah, I know... I'm still allowed to moan about it though ;D It's just that those comments are... retarded. A bit like the quality of Youtube replies.

...Or maybe we're retarded because we actually put stake in something that has tricks called "excalibur genocides". Come on guys, a little self-deprecation goes a long way. If you think about it, its a pretty damn retarded name.

ah, the wonders of the internet community. at least you haven't gotten the classic "FAKE!" comments yet, as far as i saw =P
really, its almost amusing how people find they have to put down others who have more talent than they.

Oh sure, but I'm not talking about their diabolo ignorance. I said insults.

some members of the digg community are almost as insulting and ignorant as youtube's, but at least they dugg you! It is a very useful site though

I'd be careful about claiming copyright infringement. Granted, they didn't have permission to use your video, but did you have permission to use the postal service's song ??? just a thought

Sure I stole that song, but look at it this way. User "Diabolo-boy" stole both the song AND my video. It's quite a difference in my eyes, since I put a lot of effort in that video.

And if diabolo boy had at least sited martijn it would have been different, it is almost like he took that video for his own.
