How many people will now watch the movie to see what this is about?

If this whole thing is in reaction to the idea that the Terry Jones movie is widely seen, what happens when the attackers see the number of views that are obviously going to increase as a result?

Are we going to need to censor it to dampen the outrage? Is it our duty to not see the film?

This will raise people's curiosity if nothing else, just to see what got people so angry. I had never heard of this film before this morning. The people angry enough about it to kill increased its visibility in a big way.

it be taken down? Doesn't YouTube have the authority to do that? Free speech is one thing, hateful speech that incites violence is another......
