* Does YouTube just want to fail now? First the copyright I.D. system algorithm & false flags, which they have yet to amend, or do anything about the system. A system where everyone's guilty until proven innocent, then even when you are innocent, companies can still refuse your counterclaims. There seems to be no one assigned from Google/YouTube to be a 3rd party to decide which side's right. At least then, we'd have a fair, or at least more balanced, system. Then there's the new community guideline strikes. I get why those are in place. Some people clearly just use their channels to troll/be mean to others, but why does YouTube seem to want to be censoring people, even if they have a point? ''Then'', there's the new terms of service & how they enforce it. This is another case of them seeming to be censoring content creators, or stifling creativity by cutting off monetization, even though a good percentage of the videos unmonetized aren't bad, like news videos, helpful videos, & cosmetic reviews...I mean, what? It's not even the advertisers who wanted the to do it. They implemented another broken algorithm, [[SarcasmMode because that worked so well with the copyright system, am I right?]] It's very unevenly done as well. Is YouTube trying to make everyone abandon the site? That seems horribly counterproductive, doesn't it? I ask again, does YouTube want to fail? Eventually they're going to fail to such a degree that it's going to drive a lot of their top creators from the site to another one with more lax rules & terms of service, thus making them lose a lot of money & forcing them to change their stuff to suit us.

* Who thought it was a good idea to ''acknowledge'' that you can't skip some ads? I'm talking about the 'Video will play after ad' banners that replace the Skip Ad countdown.

* Every now and then, there's a video that tells me how it's uploader has made it unavailable in my country, despite the fact that the video itself is either a music/lyric video or a trailer to some new game which have nothing to do with the country I live in. What's up with that?

Even Website/DeviantArt lets people view the work of a user that was banned from the site, even the stuff that got them banned to begin with! Wouldn't it be easier to just delete the offending videos, and disable the option to upload further videos under that channel? This is a serious problem, because this is how a lot of the good videos on the site get LostForever, not because they infringed copyright, but because the user that uploaded it got suspended over ''a completely unrelated video''.

** It sounds like something Avex Trax would do, especially with artists like Ayumi Hamasaki, on cover videos. Avex Trax are such dicks when it comes to copyright. May I ''please'' just hear a Japanese song on Website/YouTube without your name flashing across my monitor with a message that reads 'This Video was deleted'?!

*** Ah, Captain Overreaction, I'm glad you could make it. He said it was set up by his school. If they allow videos with "R-rated" material, they could get the crap sued out of them by a parent.
*** Nothing? In that case, let's allow access to paedophilia. Some people view it as perfectly legit. And porn in general - after all, it's perfectly natural for a man and woman to have bum love.

** Similar thing happened with me. I watched ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly'' in parts on Youtube, and the only scene that had been taken down for copyright was the last scene. And another channel filled with ''Film/TheAvengers2012'' clips only got one taken down, which was the one I liked... ([[PortmanteauCoupleName Pepperony]])
