Good points Uber.
I gotta say... and this is the truth..
the whole min rep to enter the videos section has brought a lot of trolls. 100s of users are coming out of the woodwork who joined in 2006 and trying to get enough rep to post in the videos section and stuff. And new people are doing all they can to get some rep.
I am not saying we should change it back.. just pointing out what I observed.
