Corrupted Archangel : If only the biggest YouTubers, Content creators, and networks could orginize a Strike. Even if it is just to make a demand for content creator friendly policy. YouTube gets its Revenue from these people. This in the end would benefit both the platform and the people on it.

NGMonocrom : I know of someone who might be able to help. Don't know him personally. But he helped out another YouTube content creator get her strike removed when her ASMR video got hit and pulled for sexual content. (Yes, I know that some ASMR-tists do cross that line. But the majority simply want to help their viewers relax and sleep.) There was zero sexual content in the video. But YouTube refused to remove the strike after she appealed. Awhile later, someone suggested she contact the following individual.... He's known as True MVP: Please let Thegn know to contact this person. Not sure he'd be willing to help. But there's no harm in politely asking. It's worth a try.

Aaron Jensen : So what's next YouTube? Are you going to ban Forgotten Weapons next saying that Ian is teaching us how to make firearms?

Ray Venn Nerdiness : Those of you near San Bruno, CA: picket the headquarters!

Awaclus : If big YouTube channels migrated to alternative platforms and stopped uploading to YouTube, they would take a lot of their audience with them. The problem is that you can only really do that if your livelihood doesn't depend on YouTube.

Aaron Reichert : "Just when you thought YouTube might start to get its act together" I didn't think that. Did anybody think that? Did you really think that? Or is it just a nice way to lead into the story?

Onetwo Threefour : how to build legit explosives: step one: take some soap now someone else continue so that none of us can be held responsible

Bloodmane1987 : Welcome to the ultimate result of the progressive left taking over. Everything is forbidden because everything is dangerous or not political correct.

George Morgan : Whoever programmed the bot should be ended rightly.

DropForgedSurvival : That is completely absurd!!! Ill be making a video this evening.. Gotta support fellow Texans!! #westandwithvikings

M Ekelmann : So much for "don't be evil".

The Real Carl XII : Do some Minecraft Let´s Plays. HAHAHAHHA.

DarkOmegaMK2 : You know why youtube was so appealing at the time? Because it was basically TV but without the censorship.

Arjan den Besten : what about a youtube content creators union??

Vancha March : Maybe if Susan spent less time making stupid videos for her stupid channel she'd actually be addressing the issues with YouTube and getting things done.....

Nic1z : Move to Pornhub, they already have an ad sistem and no restrictions

にゃあエイリアンMeowAlien : YouTube is testing their newest AI, they learn really well seeing how racist, bad prank, violence, and such video is untouched while critical, historical and educational video is taken down The AI must have studying YouTube comment section and I have to say it was rather accurate Kappa

TanitAkavirius : This is the future libertarians and ancaps want. Look. No state is involved here, *no regulations* . And you are allowed to start your own video hosting platform. Freedom. Just a slave to a private company.

P4riah1 : Lots of morons shouting 'SJWs!' in the comments of all these videos. Guess what: the SJWs are up in arms about this crap as well. You know why? Because all the 'SJW' content is being flagged as well. LGBTQIA+ content? Flagged. Politics of ANY KIND, left or right? Flagged. Videos talking maturely and sensibly about harassment issues? Flagged. Mature conversations about race and gender issues? Flagged. This isn't 'PC gone rampant' or 'SJW agenda'. This isn't 'left vs right'. This is asshole marketers in suits in the depths of some giant soulless corporation deciding that ANY content that even has the POTENTIAL to be even slightly controversial in ANY DIRECTION is 'too edgy' for advertisers. These cowards are TERRIFIED that their ads will run on anything that isn't the most mainstream, milquetoast, boring content, and Joe Blo Public will judge them for it. This is mindless corporate bullshit gone rampant. This is obsolete business practices being unable to handle the internet age. This is the panicked flailing as the long-untenable ad-based revenue model finally collapses. Place the blame where it belongs for once.

Jacob You : Some one should try to sue google on grounds of workers' rights seeing as how essentially google employs youtubers.

slapsus : This is not some misunderstanding or misinterpretation of content on behalf of youtube. They are doing this deliberately in order to censor people who have at least some sense of personal independence and free thinking. That and channels that promote the use of weapons of any kind; and, yes, particularly those which show that weapons are not the cause of violence (obviously), but can be used with reason to defend one's self, besides also useful for recreational purposes. You can see how this goes against their attempts to disarm the public, by milking the fabricated drama of government sponsored terrorism (like the las vegas shooting, to name one of the more recent false-flags. Anyway, I'm not telling people to believe me or anyone else, but to do their own research and come up with their own answers. By the way, to Skall and everyone else who are affected by youtube's bullshit censorship (well, any kind of censorship is bullshit, but you get the point), here's a video that I found illustrates at least the public layer of what goes on with youtube's censorship attempts.

Dirk van Rensburg : No longer terminated!!!! As Some one stated in the petition, Youtube needs some sort of Magna Carta to be written up for you guys i mean your careers are on tightropes!

Ian Stradian : YouTube has cowards for leadership, they suspend videos for BS reasons but then a Muslim hate video or a BLM hate video stays up. They don’t mind making an example of the small uncontroversial creators, but a radical identity politics entity gets a pass because the people running youtube are fearful of public backlash. Cowards.


Mr Fisher : You don't get it skallagrim this platform isn't meant for creative people anymore it's for the jimmy kimmels and all of those morning talk show hosts like Ellen.

meleardil : You are soooo cute when you try to see good intentions in malicious people. This must be one of the worse side effects of living in Canada. Well... I think we should call this phenomenon what it really is: Marxism. Youtube always had bias, but they did it as a mild tuning of the "recommendation" section. After their communist comrades lost some of their political influence due to truth-sayers and whistle-blowers on social media in the last 3 years, they went full retard, switched to rage mode. Demon(et)isasion, youtube heroes, and now they started open censorship. No more pretense, no more act of being the good guys. They hate and censor anything which is: not communist, not based on identity politics, not internationalist, not collectivist, opposes state power. Therefore they hate when individuals talk about weapons and self defense, and hate even more when it is related to European history. They are just warming up to it. As a Hungarian, I can tell you stories about communism, when it is out of the cage. What you are experiencing now, is only the beginning... only the existential threats and blackmail so far, but full terror is on the way. No communist in the history has ever given up the tiniest power voluntarily. I know, that you will not listen to me, because it is much more comfortable for you to think this to be just "right wing conspiracy theory", but I warn you anyway. Try to be as self sufficient as you can. Your HEMA background and independent thinking marks you as a bad guy to be suppressed. Dont be ashamed to go direct viewer support and premium content. I dont always agree with you (why should I ?), but I like you, and wish you luck with the degooglifying process.

Bob1942ful : Considering the channels that show how to make black powder, and a whole slew of other stuff. Plus the number of jihadist sites uTube does nothing about. This is ridiculous

Grzybiarz : Just went on pornhub a few minutes ago and saw a relly qt guy . Long story short i think i might be gay , What do ? My whole life was a lie

Brennan Palm : I bet you 10 bucks that this whole chain of events was started by some overprotective soccer-mom chancing upon that video. I just don't see a youtube bot suddenly terminating a channel based on a video from a few years ago. There must have been some human element in this.

Bryan Schmidt : The most screwed up thing is this- Thegn, Skall, Metatron.. All teaching historical things. Historical martial arts, historical curios, weapons, languages, etc.; they're in fear of going on the chopping block, or already have. Yet blatant racism, hate, and pure misinformation are free to stay up.

lordrichardlionheart : I love your solidarity!

Dustin Sawyer : You act as though things aren't going exactly as Youtube wants them to go. Things will only get worse because they hold all the cards.

Jaysann22 : YouTube is probably axing all its big earners. YouTube is very likely sabotaging itself for some unseen reason we're not seeing yet....

Arcanua the Red Mage : The term "family friendly" is highly, HIGHLY SUBJECTIVE. Youtube needs to fix their shit. You CANNOT BE 100% PG, that's COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE. Several channels have already explained this and PG channels are ALSO being hit by this. It's not a matter of being family friendly....they don't know how to handle this and are CLEARLY showing they don't know how to run youtube. I really, really hope they actually FIX this; be it they fire whoever's abusing their job right now and replace them or fix their god damn flagging starts with a computer and is supposed to be then handled by a person...they're not doing that anymore....they make a ton of money already.....they could get people to actually do their job.....and actually LOOK at the videos being flagged and LOOK at their TOS. Right now they themselves have BROKEN their own TOS; don't now come up to me and say "oh they made the contract they can change it." yes they can. However there is a big problem with is a BINDING CONTRACT, yes it is subject to change however it explicitly mentions the warning system that is USED BEFORE BANS OR SUSPENSIONS EVER HAPPEN. That part has NEVER changed and CANNOT be changed WITHOUT PRIOR NOTIFICATION. Which never happened and why this is such a big deal.

Dread, the Mad Smith : I got one on one of my first videos I made 2 years ago. It sucks because when this mess started I deleted a bunch of them to be safe. I just deleted it because it was just a simple slideshow and I would never get the views on it to appeal.

11th Doctor : Awwww you removes the Ivan head destruction video.. that was my favorite ;(

PointyCheese Shooting : Signed and commented. Skall you should really consider just having a donation link. A lot of people are scared of "subscribing" to a service and just want to donate when they feel like it. Almost like a Twich streamer. I feel like a lot more people (myself included) would donate here and there when not wanting to use services such as patreon. Just a thought :) As always, keep up the amazing work, and I hope you great channel doesn't go with the wind with this new stupid rules and regs

blackswordshinobi : I am late on this  but I support Thegn Thrand I confuse at this point why you tube will do that my self

Atomic Horizen : upload to facebook

Bryan Schmidt : Excellent sound and video quality, Skall. Much improved over your old videos. Money well spent.

Kendo Arasuta : Ninja fire bombs?! ... Let's face it it algorithm found it too cool for the Internet

Faux Numeration : This is why you never ever tolerate a censorship campaign, even if it means siding with "evil" ideologies. It is always a trojan horse to destroy your rights to speak, every single time.

Legend TV : They shut my old account down as well.

TheGreatPumpkin : UPDATE: Thrand's channel has been restored, per the comment on the petition linked in this video description. good job everybody

Blue Bug : Youtube seems to care wayyyy too much about their advertisers. This community is what makes youtube unique from the mainstream media out there. Youtube whats wrong with you?

Kevin Sugrue : Problem resolved. Sanity prevailed, eventually.

GreatDane : You should properly remove the Gladiatoria MS KK5013 video as it is basically a 'how to video' on how to employ the strongest weapon from medieval Europe... the pommel.

Laroac : Jo write Philip de Franco!


Lee Everett : We must start a holy viewer crusade, march into their offices of evil and end YouTube rightly! *Raises Flag and grabs Pommel Club* Onwards!
