And Then A Human Being Showed Up

I’m making an educated guess at the following events. A few weeks ago I recorded and posted a video pointing out something about hate speech on Facebook. The video, posted to YouTube was then flagged as hate speech and taken down.

I appealed and, just before shabbat, I got the following in my email:



Here’s how this works.  I post a video that the other side doesn’t like. They have a few dozen people with probably a few fake accounts each all lined up to click and report my video as hate speech.

YouTube, without human intervention, takes it down and marks ME as a hater.

When I appeal, a human being (because in the end this kind of thing can only be decided by a human) reviews it, understands what happened and clearly reverses the perverse decision.

The bit I’d like to know, and I don’t know anyone at YouTube who can tell me, is whether all those accounts who spuriously reported me are then penalised. Clearly this is a coordinated attack. Does it carry consequences for the other side? Are they able to use the same accounts over and over to report more spurious “hate” speech that is just truth they don’t like?

This is my question for YouTube: does spurious reporting carry consequences for the other side?

That would be expecting much too much from YouTube.

Hey Anonymous,

What's wrong with: "words like shit, hell, damn, fuck, piss, cunt, cocksucker and motherfucker?"

They're commonly used in my South Chicago neighborhood every day.

Don't be in a hurry for a human to respond. You Tube like Facebook and Google amongst numerous others are progressives which means they will shut down Jews, conservatives, Christians and anyone disparaging a lefty in a heartbeat and force you to admit shame before you are reinstated. Insult the left and you will be targeted for life.
