I'm not sure what you mean by not expecting a lot of comment on the legal issue. but the answer is no, it's not legal. The following portion of the Youtube TOU addresses this:
The content on the YouTube Website, except all User Submissions (as defined below), including without limitation, the text, software, scripts, graphics, photos, sounds, music, videos, interactive features and the like ("Content") and the trademarks, service marks and logos contained therein ("Marks"), are owned by or licensed to YouTube, subject to copyright and other intellectual property rights under the law.

You may access User Submissions for your information and personal use solely as intended through the provided functionality of the YouTube Website.

1) Critique it.
2) Parody it.
3) Use it for educational purposes.
4) Show it to a small, private audience (such as a group of family/friends or co-workers).
then the use of the video is protected under fair use. Even if you won't be using the video for one of the above purposes, the use still may be protected under fair use. Letting us know more details on how you will be using the video will help us to better advise you on the legality of the use. (Though if you will be using it commercially, it would be best to consult a lawyer, rather than an internet forum. )
Ironically, many YouTube videos have only been allowed to remain on YouTube due to fair use.

In addition, I don't see how providing this user assistance would violate Geeks to Go's TOU.
