YouTube has steadily grown worse and worse over the years and one of it’s most reprehensible actions hit an unexpected YouTuber.
During a stream Markiplier told his chat to vote on his in-game actions with emojis, which many of them did. Soon after users found their accounts suspended. Some may never get reinstated. Even more worse is that some had their Google accounts disabled. And even more worse is that some were paying members of YouTube Red.
Where’s the money Susan?
Here’s a summary of the situation:
What's To Come
As we can see above users also experienced their ENTIRE Google Account being suspended.
This is not a new or rare thing.
Here is a forum talking about the issue and a summary tweet:
The timing itself is interesting. In an upcoming TOS update it was revealed that YouTube could delete non commercially viable accounts.
YouTube may terminate your access, or your Google account’s access to all or part of the Service if YouTube believes, in its sole discretion, that provision of the Service to you is no longer commercially viable

If you store important data on Google Drive, like waifu pics, be sure to store them locally. Consider switching from Google services if you use them. That way you can shitpost semi-safely. You never know when they'll randomly punish you for using their platform.
