    But eastern European names have so many damn Consonants, coming from a culture that is more vowel heavy it hurts my tiny AEIOU brain.

    I'm not sure how consistent they really are with their rules; but I prefer if they take a firm position and declare that this does not technically break their rules, so it will stay, than if they constantly flip-flop in the front of controversy.

    I am "kind of familiar" (have a tiny bit understanding) about the algorithm.

    I think 1st ruling was based on the program + manual review by a staff.

    Then they backtract their decision after more people review it.



    Or maybe they cave in from pressure and the video isnt violate the ToS. Which is common/understandable since it is gay pride month right? Kinda stupid not to cave in in this time of the year if you asked me.

    The best part of all this is that Crowder's subscription count rose higher than ever since YouTube's bungling and MugClub also had him gain like several thousands if not tens of thousands of supporters to that and BlazeTV intentionally not using his discount referral code to support his channel.

    He was already somewhere around 70% to 80% demonetized by YouTube before this. It doesn't really effect him critically at all.

    The "fuzz" is him being punished when YouTube admitted he broke no rules or breached any of the policies in their ToS. That's why there is a massive backlash against YouTube for this from all fields of the political spectrum and people supporting Crowder across the world. :tiredpepe

    Hm, if he already was demonitized then I don't really care if yt further 'punished' him, just symbolic if he already didn't make money.

    You still make money even when completely demonetized by YouTube from ad revenue, but again this about the principle of unfair enforcement of punishing a content creator. It doesn't matter either way though, they shot themselves in the foot over this and made him stronger financially and clout wise.
