YouTube - videos

DEAR sir/madam

I would like to make a formal complaint as the videos on YouTube for children are very disturbing and for a child is scary and gives very poor judgement for the child the fact that you let said videos be even uploaded onto YouTube is a disgrace and the fact that human beings would create them just for a child to hurt themselves or to scare them you should as a company not allow such videos be uploaded if this continues to happen I will go to the press I will exploit your company as much as I possibly can to make sure that your website is suitable for children to view please reply my name is Zac stearn email address is [protected]@hotmail.com telephone [protected] if I do not hear from you then I will take this matter much much further!

YouTube - video adverts

I watch YouTube from Japan and I can't bear with the video ad from your channel called 't hashimoto' (please refer the attached PrintScreen).

Basically, the first few seconds until we are allowed to skip the ad says 'Nuke attack to the centre of Tokyo, Chuo-ku, Shinjuku-ku...).

I am simply wondering are you Google, as a company, supporting North Korea's attempts at destroying Japan?

If so, continue allowing this ad to be on your screen, otherwise, how can you allow this sort of extremists to maintain a channel on your platform?

I only expect you have decent common sense.

Regards

YouTube - youtube's news selections

Hello,

I am concerned that your company is now restricting it's news selections to mainstream media outlets - censoring the independent news channels- all of them.

This despite the fact that the majority of Americans don't believe the mainstream news to be factual.

This leads one to believe Youtube has strayed from its core business as a universal platform.

This is going to convince many that it is time to move to other companies filling the niche Youtube pioneered.

Thank you for reading my concerns.

Gary

YouTube - youtube promotes child abuse

I am disgusted that both channels "daddyofive" and "mommyofive" have not been taken down.
One video shows Mike Martin pointing a gun at his children.
Why haven't these vile child abusers been taken off YouTube?
I usually let my child use YouTube to watch certain shows but after seeing channels like this being left on we will no longer be using YouTube. I do not support child abuse! Sort it out, you get paid enough!

YouTube - bad baby videos

Dear service provider,

You have been very cooperative and supportive in display of educative videos to your customers except some "bad baby" videos which our kids use to watch and use to act the same way as shown in videos.
We therefore request you to show "bad baby" videos only after logging into grail or youtube account.

Thanking you in anticipation

Your loyal customer

YouTube - commercials between videos

I use several Learning Station videos for my special education classroom. The commercials are extremely inappropriate and use bad language such as the word ####. Mainly during the video game commercials. How are the commercials monitored or reviewed before being allowed to be used? How are the commercials selected and assigned to videos. Educational videos should not have the types of commercials you supply for them. Almost none are ever appropriate. Hope you can resolve and appreciate my input.

Thank you,

Andrea

YouTube - ben & jerry's ad

Dear YouTube,

I've been having a difficult time watching YouTube due to the unloading Ben and Jerry ad that keeps on interfering my videos. All the other ads from different companies play just as fine, which won't bother me at all. However, Ben & Jerry just won't load and gets stuck every time it pops up. I have to reopen the window/app to reload my entire video every time the ad is B & J (which occurs 5 times a day?)

Please let me know if this can be fixed or whether I can get help to block this specific ad since I couldn't activate the adblocker on my device...it's racking my nerves...

Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter.

Happy Easter Holiday,
Chanel Zhang

YouTube - homepage content

Very disappointed that YouTube's content can be very inappropriate especially for younger viewers who may come in contact with the home page-for example, I was on the home page with my daughter and as I was scrolling down here came some inappropriate adult type material referencing sex and was clearly not for children, especially if it's graphic. Do better, if those type's of things are going to be on a general public domain for everyone perhaps filters or links should be used.

YouTube - david pakman show; news & politics

4/4/2017 -- on going

It looks like pulling advertising from David Pakman Show (and similar current events/news/politics programming) are being targeted by an advertising cartel with a resulting revenue loss that seems to fit with the idea that "the free press" is being branded as "the enemy of the American people" per Donald Trump and thus, subverted.

Youtube have suddenly started pulling advertising revenue from legitimate news commentary sites such as The David Pakman show and Kyle Kulinski's show and the Majority Report amongst others. These channels do well researched and credible reportage and yet you are censoring them by stealth by demonetising their content. David's show is syndicated to radio stations in the US, so how can his content be offensive ?
Clearly it is not. Some of his previous advertisers have been trying to advertise on his show specifically and Youtube have decided not to allow them.
At the same time I noticed that Alex Jones, who is a blatant liar and spreads conspiracy theories and fake news DOES NOT APPEAR TO HAVE LOST REVENUE ?Why?
Please be advised that if you persist in this underhand method of censoring news content which is well respected and well presented then I may as well get rid of the app entirely - I am not interested in fluffy cat videos or endless fake stunts - you are still monetising MSNBC and Fox News videos and so it would appear that you are now in collusion with the billionaire owned press outlets to shut down any debate.
I oniy have the app to watch news and I do watch the standard outlets as well, however I would definitely not bother keeping the app just for that and so your corporate mates will also lose out as a result of this.
Do you not understand the word 'complicit' either YouTube ?
This must be altered now YouTube or inevitably we will all leave and find another more fair platform and youtube will lose out.
Yours in absolute disbelief and disgust Josie Fox

YouTube - unnecessary advertisements/repeating advertisement

Dear Youtube, I don't understand why you repeating Shukri, Tya & Baby advertisement 5 mins once. It's really annoying even though it only few mins advertisements. Some more the advertisements have No skip button.It's really irritating when you do long program in a name of advertisements. A movie which should finish in 1 hour take 2 hours with your ### advertisements. I've complain about this in comment box before. I'm at office, just put hear phone and listen to songs when working. Can u imagine same advertisements come every time & need to skip advertisement every time. I do understand u get sponsor for the advertisements but stop doing cheap trick like this.

YouTube - unauthorized use of copyrighted content

I have been keeping an eye out since youtube has been terminating channels that have not violated terms while allowing channels blatantly monetizing copyrighted content to remain. Since my last post, the woman with the longest history of channels with specifically, TV ONE, LLC copyrighted content has created a NEW channel with her signature name "00FA (zero, zero, F, A) with her logo stating "THE OFFICIAL 00FA CHANNEL" and is already generating revenue. This has "hit the fan" and now TV ONE business affairs will be contacted (their legal department). If you see any channels posting TV ONE content, email the legal department if youtube does nothing, at [protected]@tv-one.tv ... I have sent them a lot of video footage of this channel. Other channel is called FATAL ATTRACTION FULL EPISODES (see screenshot showing video titled "Secret Playlist").

YouTube - unauthorized monetization of copyright material

Youtube has been allowing multiple people to create channels and upload copyrighted content which the channel owner and Youtube generate earnings from. This is one of the channel videos https://youtu.be/kLgdx_mTEwE (Michael Glass and Fatal Attraction are 2 channels by the same uploader). That link is to the channel called Michael Glass whose first ad is at the 7:09 to 7:10 mark. This is unauthorized. There is much corruption at Youtube. Since I have been exposing them, they have terminated the few that have third party licenses. I know these people who are affiliated with TV ONE. Their channels were terminated without warning. They had no strikes. Another problem is youtube allows people to flag videos just because... you then get strikes to appeal. I know someone who appeals and succeeds almost on a daily basis. That is another huge problem. This post is about corporate crimes youtube is involved in which I am exposing here and other platforms. When the person with the OOFA channel starts to upload again (there is only 1 video she left directing people to her other channel of monetized TV ONE, LLC content), I will be involved in the termination of that channel and a new one she made which I will omit at this time. Youtube people, what you have been doing is disgusting and you all will one day regret it.
