@jennifer because of coronavirus mentions?
@CSB possibly? Not entirely sure. Someone or many someones probably didn't like the latest clip and maybe reported it (although the likes vs dislikes for it aren't bad).
I haven't had an email from YT but the proof is in the numbers.
@jennifer I have heard rumors that algos demonetize and downgrade videos with mention of coronavirus
maybe whole channel degraded due to this mention
but also somebody could report “wrong” reporting about corona to YouTube without giving thumbs down
@CSB Yeah, good point. . .but I was really hoping we'd stay under the radar by not being monetized.
Now I am totally rethinking the clip I was working on for the next upload.
Stupid YT! GRRRR.
@jennifer YouTube algos have machine learning : don’t put words “coronavirus” neither in sound nor in text, otherwise sentinels will hunt you down to China town
maybe record / use replacement wording , code words? 🤷♂️
@CSB Interesting idea!
@CSB Too bad my favorite replacement word would be WuFlu which will likely also get flagged.
@jennifer feel free to use “pomeranian”
@wolfspider Kinda looks/feels that way.
