I just received this email from them below last night. The last two months I've had to endure them giving me strikes and removing certain videos that they felt had adult content. And is soon as I sent him a response they took the video back up.
Are you kidding me? There are people that put up videos on sexual positions and other stuff like that on their website. But someone has decided that submission wrestling is it adult video! Our sport is now adult content as deemed by someone at Youtube???? I don't think so!!!!!!!! That it shows strong sexual content? This is the email I received
This account has been terminated due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube's policy on nudity or sexual content.
So the thought has now occurred to me that if you spend hundreds of hours putting up videos and building your channel on YouTube so that they can make money off of it, that they can at any point in time remove it, if it doesn't meet their financial model. In other words if you're making money and they don't feel they are making enough from you? AND THERE WILL BE NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT WHICH MEANS YOU HAVE WASTED ALL OF THAT TIME. AND YOU HAVE DRIVEN CUSTOMERS TO THEIR WEBSITE THAT THEY WILL KEEP WITHOUT YOU! Plus who wants to spend each day waiting to see if someone at YouTube doesn't like your channel or what really happens is some idiot who looks at YouTube doesn't like your content and starts having people send strikes against it.
I have emailed them back and we will see if I get another response. It is time for other producers who have had these experiences with YouTube to post them and let others know what has happened and what can happen to them. LUCKILY THE COST OF TRAFFIC HAS DECREASED SO SUBSTANTIALLY THAT I'M ABLE TO PUT UP PREVIEWS ON MY OWN VIDEOS ON THIS WEBSITE. THANK GOD
