    What does it mean to list your video as, "Unlisted"? I have never understood this classification.
    Here's one feature / element I'm waiting for YT to create:That is the ability for Live Stream Operators / creators to be able to slow down the rate of incoming chat comments so that they have time to read them rather than having it buzz by them at the speed of light. All to often viewers and listeners hear this as a lament of Live Stream moderators while they are live.
