Isn't it interesting that my very first youtube video would meet this end?!

I can only wonder who would not want me on youtube :look:

I've written to them, asking what in my video was in violation of their rules, and will let you all know what they say.

For those of you who are more familiar with youtube, maybe you can give me some insight on how it works.

The video was just me, talking. There was no spamming, no music, no sexual references, no vulgarity, none of the things they remove videos for.

Any insight Family, would be appreciated ... and thanks to all those that viewed, commented, etc.

Love You!

:heart:

I'm kinda feeling that too Sister Purple, the haters.

They've spent much energy trying to convince everyone that i'm this, that, and the other ... my video dispelling much of it ... well, they had to do something i guess.

In a twisted, perverted, psychotic sort of way, it's kinda flattering that they think so much of me, that they would put so much of their time and energy into me.

We'll see what youtube says, and of course I will share it. Thanks.

Love You!

:heart:

I don't get it.

I'm a member of youtube. I've never posted vids but I've seen several - vulgarity, outlandish, people talking about other dead people, living people, sex, politics, people in mask, copyrighted material, EVERYTHANG except maybe porn (borderline softcore - yes, but not outright porn).

Even if it was haters, how can that work in taking down an innocent video on youtube, compared to what's out there already? Do you think youtube even saw the video or just removed it because of someone else's complaint?

And what would people have to hate on you for? And they the banned?

Reminds me of when i was part of a breastfeeding group on facebook, and lots of women had pictures up of them nursing their babies. Well some folks... haters?.... said they were offended, that breastfeeding was child abuse, and facebook said rules were violated because areolas and maybe some parts of a nipple was showin. They took all the pics down, and everyone in the group started to target nude and semi nude sexuality people had up to show FB that it wasn't being fair.

Seems like the most innocent stuff gets picked on compared to what's out there.

As far as flagging goes, i've seen a few video's with people talking about flagging issues. They said that Youtube don't even investigate the allegations; They just draw a conclusion based on the fact that it was flagged.
Now i hate to be one to gossip, but that's what some complained about.

Yes Sister ... you know how difficult it is to manage this community ... complaints, etc. ... so i'm sure it's worse there.

They probably do just remove flagged stuff, but I hope they will put it back, once they see there's no issues with the video.

I Love You! :kiss:

'Flagged' is where someone pushes that button that says the video is offensive?

I'm sorry. Really I am.

I try to stay off your good and bad sides (you and your mods) so i didn't comment on the video but it was a very nice video.

I hesitate to call anyone a 'hater' or 'jealous' because those words get tossed around so much they lose meaning, and those words commonly drop from the mouths of people who obviously need the attention of the one they brand as a 'hayta.'

I've been branded a 'hayta' and jealous and it wasn't even that. If I went after somebody, it was more like... retribution for a perceived indiscretion.

But in any case, hatin, jealousy, retribution - it plays more against the person giving it out than the person it was intended for. It doesn't come from a calm, secure, and settled place; but one of unsettled, lonely, passive aggressiveness and insecurity.... and it's easier to attack a person when they are at their most benign and most innocent.

I sound like a horrible person, but not all of this was from me, but from observation and empathy of human behavior.

I hope your video gets put back up soon. It's good representin of the Destee community. I'm sure once they take a gander of it they will see that it didn't violate any rules of that community.

I guess you can look at the branding of a “hater” as such. Especially if you’ve been branded that before. It’s of my personal perspective, if there were a confrontation, and I could not settle it within the confines it all began, I would not seek to settle it at an inappropriate time, when that person was doing something totally different from what my dispute was about. I would not try to sabotage any efforts that did not pertain to what my dispute was in the beginning


I guess there are other words I could have used to describe such deeds. But anyone who discreetly/indirectly seek revenge rather settle a dispute openly, has hater tendencies to me. And I Have to disagree with your premise below:

But in any case, hatin, jealousy, retribution - it plays more against the person giving it out than the person it was intended for. It doesn't come from a calm, secure, and settled place; but one of unsettled, lonely, passive aggressiveness and insecurity.... and it's easier to attack a person when they are at their most benign and most innocent.
Calling a spade a spade seldom has anything to do with such. It's more of a self-acknowledgement that there are haters, and they will do almost anything to disrupt any little peace one may have. Also, in this particular situation, it may not even be the acts of a hater. It could just be some misunderstood guidelines about youtube policies. But still, it does not disqualify the spiteful, jealous, retributions of a possible hater.

But Thank you for sharing your observation with me!

What exactly is your ideology?!
I'll be honest. I like black culture forums, so I've signed up for this one, BX, and Lipstick Alley. I won't post too often, only on things that I'm really interested in. Nice to meet you. :)
