I'm not sure I'd entirely place the blame on Google. There are a lot of forces at work on a company the size and scope of Google. While I certainly don't trust them, sometimes things are more complicated.
I've been a few rounds with some of the commenters on Youtube videos and some of them are just the scum of the earth. Wouldn't put anything past them. Including complaining and making things up and refusing to stop until they get their way. I'm sure the people who enforce the rules on a platform like Youtube have to deal with a crapload of BS from people like that. Sometimes it might just be easier to let them have their way just to shut them up for a few minutes.
Google is a business. As such, they have to think about money first. It's just that simple. No company wants bad publicity.
