* 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.

* 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?

** 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]])

** Because politics are inherently controversial. Also, people seem to like arguing.

* Why does every video even ''mentioning'' Politics spark a flame war between Trump supporters and Hillary supporters?

* When you sign up, it forces you to use a real name channel. I know it's to foil impersonators, and you can change it, but still.

* Why does YouTube have such an inconsistent policy with sex and nudity? I've seen videos removed or age-restricted which had nothing worse than what you would see in a PG-13 movie, meanwhile I've flagged multiple videos with full-frontal nudity and explicit sex acts which are still up months later without even an age restriction.
