Youtube's Broken System Locks Up Derrick's Channel

One of my favorite SL video makers, Derrick, had his channel disabled today from someone mass-reporting several of his videos.

The culprit seems to be someone he argued with in Discord and the whole affairs points out just how broken Youtube's system really is.

Some of these videos were over a year old.  One had already been hand-reviewed and reinstated.  There seems to be ways to trigger automated (non human) reviews of videos that almost always result in the video coming down.  The trick seems to be having more than one person filing the complaint

Human review seems to be the key to getting these things worked out.  The trusted flagger program once offered some help there, but youtube seems to be quietly retiring the program.  Getting in a decent network used to help in these situation, but with the mass demonetization of Youtube, most of these have gone out of business.

Derrick will continue working to get his channel back in good standing, but so far Youtube seems pretty clueless.

Lindens Know Us By Name

When Kopyboat got his napster Pelliot account suspended by Linden Lab, he wrote to ask why.  The responding linden addressed him as "Kopy" even though there was no information on the Napster Pelliot account to attach it to Kopy's original account.

What is Banter

By definition: banter is an exchange between two or more people. 

Ranting by yourself on youtube for an hour or more is just being lonely.

Help For MrBtfo

Last night, Britbong told me that Sam Hyde, DanielFromSL and some guy named Stiggs have all joined his discord to help build his new brand.  (I guess his new brand HELPIVEBEENBTFO hasn't been growing very quickly)

There may have been some alcohol involved because he kept saying he was talking to people in his discord, but when I checked his discord nobody was in any of the voice channels.

I'm not sure what the plan is.  Maybe Sam Hyde and DanielfromSL will make a bunch of tweets saying how great MrBTFO is without telling anybody that MrBTFO is really just Britbong trying not to get banned again. 

He's pretty serious about the re-brand.  Two of his former fans approached me recently to say that he not only banned them from Stream Chat But from Discord as well, simply because they called him "Britbong" and not "MRBtfo"
