Someone Else Trying To Delete My YouTube Channel?

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,

Chris

@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:

"Hello,

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.

Sincerely,
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?
