Getting banned from YouTube!

in #wtf6 years ago

I have had a yourtube account now for a few years. I have been mirroring SouthFront videos on the war on Syria.

I received this email below..

Hi slippybits,

As you may know, our Community Guidelines describe which content we allow and what we don’t allow on YouTube. Your video "Syrian War Report – August 1 2017" was flagged for review. Upon review, we’ve determined that it violates our guidelines. We’ve removed it from YouTube and assigned a Community Guidelines strike, or temporary penalty, to your account.

The impact of strikes

This is the second strike applied to your account within three months. As a result, you’re unable to post new content to YouTube for two weeks. If there are no further issues, ability to upload will be automatically restored after this two-week period.
We understand that users seldom intend to violate our policies. That’s why strikes don’t last forever – this strike will expire in three months. However, it’s important to understand that if you receive three strikes within three months, we’ll terminate your account, rendering it permanently inaccessible.

How you can respond

If you believe this was a mistake, we’d like to hear from you. Please follow both of these steps as simply deleting the video won’t resolve the strike on your account.
The next time you sign in you will be asked to acknowledge this strike on your account.
If you would like to appeal this strike, please submit this form. Our team will thoroughly review your appeal and will contact you again very soon.
Yours sincerely,

  • The YouTube Team
    Strike 1

    Strike 2

I have appealed the decision as I can see nothing wrong with these videos that go against community guidelines!

Does anyone have a reason?
