Just awesome like that
Considering Youtube has been the way it is for over 10 years,
Um, yeah, YouTube wasn't around in 2002. I think it started in 2004 or '05.

Insert witty and clever quip here.

NOT THE BEES
There's no business model if they required you to pay to view the videos. The whole point of Youtube is user-generated content, as well as the location where music videos are posted.

IIRC Starcraft 2 did exactly that with custom maps.

I asked for financials twice now and nobody has produced them.

where exactly does one get a company's quarterly reports, anyway
You can't even write racist abuse in excrement on somebody's car without the politically correct brigade jumping down your throat!
Usually on company websites, but you can check on financial news media outlets as well.

As we're talking about Google here is last quarter's earnings report:

You are the key. And. You take me apart.
This isn't quarterly, and was published 14 April 2009 (so a little outdated) however it suggests that;

Google will lose $470 mn [in 2009]

That was in 2009.
I hold myself down.

Just to let you go-oh-oh.

Just to let you go~oh~oh.

(let you go. Oh. Oh-oh.)

Well long story short for the Google earnings call, 2.8 billion in net profit Q1 2012. It doesn't break it down, so I don't know what YouTube is.

Geronimo!
It said YouTube was one of their "strongly performing" properties. So I don't imagine it lost money.
Well it looks like real numbers and statistics have killed another thread!

So does this mean this thread can/will be closed?

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
