So, I have a youtube account in good standing. I'm not posting this to spam my account, just bringing up something that has been aggravating me. I
have noticed that when I make certain comments on videos with articulate, compelling arguments for unorthodox ideas falling outside of the status quo
I encounter much problem with reloading and displaying the comments or at times even getting the youtube homepage to load. When this occurs, there is
no problem loading any other site, just youtube. Right now youtube is "Down for Maintainance" which occured IMMEDIATELY after a wordy and eloquent
argument on a police brutality video. I don't simply leave the obligatory contempt responses so many others do (not knocking them) but rather I try
to offer solutions and revolutionary thought. So, my theory is that so many youtube channels are on watch lists. It goes without saying that this is
true. Having said that, I believe youtube may be denying service to certain users at certain times. How/why does this occur? That's beyond the scope
of this initial post. That's why it's conspiracy "theory" though, isn't it? It's just a theory which may or may not prove to be true.
Do you have any stories of denial of service on youtube? I suppose this would include (but not be limited to) video removal, false DMCA/TOS
violations, votebotting, censorship, targeted viewership service denial and bannings.
