YouTube TOS

TTB says that the Daily Limit for Friend Requests is UNLIMITED. However, here is what I read in the YouTube TOS...

"You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, "robots," "spiders," or "offline readers," that accesses the Service in a manner that sends more request messages to the YouTube servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a conventional on-line web browser. "

So, if I send a Friend Request every 10 seconds, 24x7, is that considered illegal by YouTube?

We limit the number of contact requests you can send to a number that meets their TOS. However, you should set the minimum time to 30 seconds.

Thank you for the answer.

However, can you please tell me what you mean by the following, which comes from the TTB website, at this address: http://support.tubetoolbox.com/entries/21452647-info-youtube-s-sending-limits

It says I can add 9400 per day by using a 10 second interval.


Adding Contacts (formerly Friend Requests)

UNLIMITED. Please note that although YouTube does not have a limit on the number of contacts you can add per day, based on YouTube's TOS Tube Toolbox only allows you to add them approximately once every 10 seconds which turns out to be about 9,400 Add Contacts per Day.
