As the collaboration continues I face everyday censorship from youtube. Perhaps envy or even ( but surely not ) ridicule of my work, below is the transcript of the issue raised by an witless unknown third party.

“In accordance with the Community Guidelines, this video has been removed from YouTube.
It’s not okay to post large amounts of untargeted, unwanted, or repetitive content to YouTube. If the main purpose of your content is to drive people off of YouTube and onto another site, it will likely violate our spam policies. In addition, misleading descriptions, tags, titles, or thumbnails designed to increase views are not allowed. Tags should only be placed in the appropriate tag section and not in the description.

If you believe this decision was made in error, you may appeal using this form. The YouTube team will review our original decision and reinstate the video if appropriate. We will notify you by email of our final decision on your video. Please note that you may only appeal this video once.”

Incensed I replied that the video is a valid artistic expression and not ” spam ” and soon had the video reinstated, though pretty pointless as an act of censorship it did little to undermine my enthusiasm for the project.
