Someone Else Trying To Delete My YouTube Channel?

Sign in to follow this  


After publishing my previous blog post where I am seriously concerned about the YouTube censorship, I received several messages, public and private, that the true reason may be somewhere else. I didn't expect such a scenario. @David and @getintheir publicly stated their suspicion about someone trying to flag my content on YouTube in order to remove it. After their comments, I realized that this could really happen. Then, I received a few personal messages and a personal call from well respected sources saying practically the same thing. This isn't a coincidence and I have to seriously deal with a possibility that there is some wretch / worm / a poor fellow amongst us.

The reason / motive for such an immoral behavior could be easy - someone selling similar content could feel threatened because my videos just reveal everything what I've learned in my trading career for free. As a result, I decided to start a...

Hunting Season

If there really is someone doing this stuff, let's find that person and expose the truth. I believe more than 1 person had to be involved in such a practice. In order to flag and automatically remove my content from YouTube, more people had to be coordinated together. They could not operate from one IP address.

Who could do such a thing? Any ideas? I will need your help in order to achieve justice.

@Tomas I could have sent you a private message, but I prefer to speak openly in public, as it can be read by everyone.

It could still be 1 person. It is easy to have several phones which all use different ip addresses. Together with different email addresses/profiles.

It would be hard to track, but good luck if you choose to hunt for them.

One person I know it is not is myself. Because it wouldn't even cross my mind to think of such behaviour.

One suggestion is to ask YouTube for the reason for your account termination.
Surely they can't close someone down just by giving an automated response?

Sadly we live in a world where people seem to delight in trying to cause other people pain. It seems that if you put your head above the parapet, there will always be someone trying to bring you down.

Do what you can to get justice, Tomas, but don't let it consume you - I'd like to think you have more fans than enemies.

Keep positive,

@David, I tried again with the following appeal:

"Hi YouTube, very probably somebody has tried to disrupt my business. I have received many indications and comments from people who visit my website and who watch my videos. All of them say that someone has flagged my videos as inappropriate. Probably it was somebody who didn't want my videos to be public and free to watch for everyone - those videos could be potentially dangerous for some people who sell similar content. I would like you to look into the exact reason of why my channel was picked up. I want a clear and non-automated answers because I didn't break any of your rules. Really, I want some human interaction and engagement with you!"

And I received exactly the same automated answer again:


Thank you for your account suspension appeal. We have decided to keep your account suspended based on our Community Guidelines and Terms of Service. Please visit http://www.youtube.com/t/community_guidelines for more information.

Please do not respond to this email. Replies to this email will not be processed. Please refer to our Help Center for more information.

The YouTube Team

@getintheir, yes, everything is possible and I don't know the truth because it is impossible to reach YouTube personally and get an explanation from them. So far I only received a feedback from the community saying that someone attacked my channel intentionally. I would never believe this is possible but I received exactly the same feedback from so many different sources that I have to take this seriously. Most of them were private.

Hi Tomas,

Another route for the YouTube issue is to go to a channel where they have a high view count and message the owner to see if they have an account manager in YouTube that they could pass you on to?

    • Hi David, I am new to this game also, and I started trading in the same way ie: trying to 'scalp' as big a tick difference as possible in order to chase a greater profit (with £2 stakes), I soon found that more often than not the market changed direction before my closing bet was matched, resulting in a loss. I have now changed my trading to opening/closing a trade within a few seconds for one tick difference, I can also 'follow' the general odds movement by scalping in this way to build profit further. I also believe however, that making an initial decision as to whether a particular horse will steam or drift BEFORE attempting to trade it also helps in avoiding a loss (although this involves a bit of pre-race form study!). I found this video entitled 'directional scalping' really helpful https://www.betangel.tv/videos/betfair-trading-strategies/trading-on-horse-racing?jut1=3 Merry Christmas to all!
    • Hi David,

      You are not a failure trader! You only fail at something when you give up. An exercise for you:

      The markets are more volatile than they used to be and this lends itself to swing trading opportunities. For your next session, try observing the following markets:

      1) No more than 6 runners
      2) The favourite is priced under 3.0

      When you watch this markets, pay attention to how one horse's price movement affects the other. Also, look at resistance and support points on the graph prior to the last 10 minutes. On Saturday 1st December there are 5 races that meet this criteria and I can tell you that at least one of these races will result in a decent move which, if you are on the right side of, you will pick up a few ticks.

    • Reading anything you write not make you think about changing the way you trade? "the favourite was getting BACKED down to 3.6" coming down all the way to 2.86 if not lower and you are trying to LAY it each trade!? Would it not of been much easier just to back? As you said yourself, it was getting backed. "17.00 The favourite DRIFTED up to 2.48" going up to 2.74 and higher? and you keep trying to back it!? its drifting as you said. Why are you trying to catch a falling knife/ jump in front of the train when you can get on-board instead.   Also these sort of statements you make "Generally on Saturdays, it is best to back the favourites at a high point" are just crazy imo. You can not go into a market and think, well its a Saturday and its the fav I better back it. Or its a Tuesday i better lay the second fav at the bottom of the range. The sweeping assumptions are dangerous. If the markets were as easy as that you would be loaded by now. I am not trying to be mean and please do not take what i say as me digging at you, i am just trying to help in my own way
    • My advice maybe a little bit unusual. It's been quite some time since you started trading, that means you know very well how to operate the software, you probably know different emergency situations and how to act & react when they happen. You know that it makes no sense to risk more than you can afford to lose. Right now you probably know every technical aspect of trading yet you still struggle to achieve long term profit and to go up in the game. Try something different than you are already doing right now. You need to be "in the zone" - that is a kind of situation when you feel like you have a trance. There is only you and the market. You feel the market as a living organism and you feel every beat of it. Have you ever felt like this? From my own experience, I have had just a few moments in my trading career which really meant I was able step up and jump to another level of trading. The first one was when I realized I can really make some money on this. It took me a few months (on greyhounds). The second one was when I earned £100 in a day for the first time. The third one was £1,000 in a day. The last one was £1,000 in a one race. Once I understood any of these milestones is possible, I was able to repeat them regularly. I want you to crack the first step, to get you into a profit. You obviously need to change something and my inner feeling is that you need to be more pro-active in the market. You need to be the one who does the decision and takes the position first. Market is often a slow & fat guy, yet very powerful. It's really hard to describe it but there is a little room / space for the profit. Market always follows that space but when it does, it creates another space. You need to get into a situation when you are the one who is on top of everything. That requires to make quick and maybe risky decisions but you need to stand up and do it, you need to get out of the crowd. Crowd will never bring you to the top. 
    • That may be because of the season change. Summer is Flat, winter is Hurdle and early autumn is a transition between the two.
