Youtube, Google, widespread account terminations Show more
Markiplier put on a Youtube livestream to promote the new (really awesome) choose-your-own-adventure YT series thing he put out. In the stream he played through the game and asked chat to use specific emotes to vote which way to go.
Google’s automated systems detected this as malicious spam and completely terminated the entire Google account of hundreds of viewers.
Mark is so pure though, he’s personally championed calling out Google to fix it, probably to his own massive detriment. Last I heard he got through to someone I guess, so it’s being fixed now. Only because a major producer called them out.
However it highlights something important: Google can yeet you for any reason and if they do, you lose access to all your services. Automated anti-harassment/anti-spam catches you in a false positive on Youtube? You lose your gmail, docs, android account, everything.
Every single person who appealed for reinstatement got denied by another automated system, and then were told “there is nothing more you can do, this is the end of the workflow”.
YT also just updated their TOS to express they can and will terminate accounts that are “commercially nonviable”, meaning they’ve put on the table that they can terminate you if your footprint-to-profit ratio is low.
Do not rely on Google. If you have YT vids, back them up. If you rely on gmail, consider an alternative; especially for emailed 2FA logins.
