YouTube Issues  

YouTube suspended my account. I had no notice of it all. The only way I found out about it was by someone sending me a Tweet that they tried to access my account and it was gone. Don't know whether it's permanent or not. I heard that some accounts get suspended for a short period of time. Don't know how to contest it either. I heard that bots are the decisionmakers on whom to suspend and whom not to suspend. I once had one music video suspended because YouTube said that I was using a certain singer's copyrighted material. I wasn't even using that singer's material. I tried to contest it, and it was all in vain. Nobody listened. I'm not even bothering contesting this time. I just opened up a new channel:


I am no longer spicedogs, but THE spicedogs in Youtube. The hardest thing will be recreating all the videos. I have a good number of them in my hard drive; but some I lost when my webserver went kaput. Such is life. Nothing is permanent. I just feel bad that I lost all the viewership counts. Terry O'Quinn's Emmy Acceptance Speech had so many hits. I uploaded it again; and it now has a total of 4. Sad!

That's so strange. The one time I had YouTube violation for music they just stripped the sound from it and left it up. I still wonder why they didn't just take it down.

Oh sh**!
I loved your channel!
Okay it's supposed to be you get 3 warnings then they suspend. I have had one due to Disney being a-holes.
You should have at least received an email.
You can contest it via email.
I know I am afraid to upload anything to my Terry channel but I have every video I have ever made on my hard drive so suspend away YT... asshats.

WTF?? I would be so pissed. Such assholes. I'll have to have Melissa put up a new link to that vid.

By the way, thanks so much for the v-gift. You're a great friend, Edith. {{HUGS}} I'm around if you're on.
