Is youtube punishing users for their comments?
A youtube account allows one to upload videos and make comments on others' videos.
A feature is the user has a choice to subscribe to different users at youtube and there is a drop down menu that shows any new uploads from their subscriptions.
Recently, some people have noticed that the youtube subscriptions are sometimes not updated, or the subscriptions tab has disappeared, completely.
As i have an account with youtube, and i comment alot, i noticed that if i post a comment that could be considered anti-establishement, my subscription tab mysteriously vanishes for a while.
They say it's just a "bug" and they are working hard to fix it.
Yet, it looks more like this is a way of stick-and-carrot control over the users.
i found a work-around, if you have this problem too.
if you are a member of youtube and your subscriptions have been "disappeared",
go to your home page, sign in, and paste this into your browser:
let me know if it works for you.
