Okay Dudes. We've been cleaning our rental house all afternoon when we began receiving a barrage of nice messages from listeners telling us our Youtube account was no longer active. And yikes, that seems to be true...
In fact, Youtube has permanently deleted the account. The reasons given are very generic. Maybe they think we're spam? What does it mean by "inappropriate content"? Nothing specific. I'm assuming we've been targeted by some trolls who are abusing the flagging system. I've been told that some other online seller accounts have also been shut down. Oh boy, it's always fun on the internet.
Anyway, we've working through the formal appeals process. Hopefully a real human at Youtube will read this (Hi!!!), and read through the comments on this blog to see that we run a positive community where our only goal is to help each other.
In the meantime, you can also listen to our podcasts through the MP3 link on each post or at the Archive. It's not as fancy at the YT, but it works.
If anyone has any experience working through Youtube's system, let us know. There doesn't seem much we can do but wait.
In the comments, it might help our cause if you help us explain to Youtube why you like this community. Are we spam?
Okay, we're back up. No message or explanation from Youtube...but it
looks it looks like our appeal worked? We really appreciated everyone
who wrote a short note in the comments. We can only hope that a live human at Youtube
came to the blog to see that we're all just having fun and helping each
Drama is now over. Back to work. Ryanne will be posting the What Sells video this morning.
