Youtube, Don't Presume

It's not that I don't know Hebrew, but I choose to work in English.  This morning youtube started setting me up in Hebrew, because Israel is my location.  Of course the instructions on how to cancel it are in Hebrew, so someone with much worse Hebrew than mine has a major problem. 

B"H, bli eyin haraa, what would I do if they suddenly started trying to impose Arabic?

At least YouTube works! Many sites, like major TV networks, see my non-US Internet address (huh? I thought the internet was international!) and tell me I can't access their content. I assume that's true in Israel, too.

Jennifer, I use yahoo and gmail for most things. But this isn't from signing in, it's just going into youtube. When I check the "counters" to see how many visits the blogs have had they give all sorts of info like country, type of internet connect etc.
