This is my first visit to Web Applications, although I've been using the other SE sites for some time.

I left some comments on this question.

It kind of escalated. Did I overreact and overstep the mark?

Perhaps a bit, yes, but thank you for raising the issue on meta.

TL;DR -- we always assume fair use unless there is clear and compelling evidence of illegal or dangerous intentions.

I think this is a perfectly valid and useful WebApps question for someone who wanted to move all their YouTube videos -- whether they are of their dog, or of The Black Eyed Peas -- to another video hosting site for whatever reason.

    Ok, point taken @Jeff. I was drawn into an exchange of commments which I should have avoided in the first place. If I come back to Webmasters I'll follow my own advice <meta.stackexchange.com/questions/89367/…> and read until I get a flavour of what's acceptable. Thanks.
