    NO – makes no difference at all. No matter how long you let the video run for.

  • Angela says:

    This has been happening to me the last few days. I will try to post, get that message, then immediately try again, and it posts. Don’t know why. Weird.

  • Suz says:

    I am really thankful to the owner of this web page who has shared this wonderful article!
    It really worked! Thank you!

  • Tom Sperhac says:

    I contacted youtube and asked them to help, and the ban was lifted and I was able to post within minutes!

      « …asked them to help, and the ban was lifted »
      1. Could you give the address? Most so-called “contacts” at Google or Youtube never reply hence never SERIOUSLY read (You can’t imagine someone really reading then having a strong desire to answer thus making the appropriate reply, be it a public collective one when many people asked the same question).
      2. Did they tell you what was their reason for blocking you? was it real? or unjustified or purely invented? Thanks in advance,

        Michael Merlin; it was on the ‘need help?’ box on my youtube account page, as I recall, and I think I was banned because I write a lot of political and conspiracy-minded thoughts, sometimes,
        and suddenly I couldn’t comment anywhere on youtube, so I wrote them in that ‘help’ box, and asked them to let me comment and I’d tone it down or something like that,
        then, within a little while, I tried to comment and I could, and I was surprised, because it felt like they were following me,
        because, like you said, who would read my comment and then react to it so soon;
        it was definitely strange, and it made me laugh, that’s all I can say; 6/14/20

          1. My name is Michel Merlin. I don’t find any explanation how someone could honestly make such an error. Please don’t offer excuses, there is no HONEST one. You would only strengthen the impression you have built of being a shill of the governments, polices and other forces currently installing dictatorship, as explained below.

          2. On the ground I agree with what you write (and probably NOT with what you think or prepare). In my case my ability to comment on Youtube was reinstated, soon after my complaint, suddenly with no more notification or reason or sign than when it was taken away.
          I never made any offense other than exposing my POV, generally in defense of truth, logic, honesty, justice, democracy, citizens, so I can’t have any enemies other than the henchmen or shills of the currently building dictatorships. However those are numerous and well disguised as defenders of what they are actually attacking.
          None, no matter how stupid, can do such action (temporarily removing my ability to comment on Youtube) inadvertently, so I am sure that this action was a deliberate and well thought one, probably to intimidate me into stopping my posts in defense of justice and citizens; they apparently removed that sort of temporary ban as soon as they saw that I had noticed the action and understood the message. I guess this powerful action against freedom AND TRUTH of expression on Youtube will continue, no matter the gimmicks trying to mislead people about it. And of course it will continue to be associated with all the nazi-like actions they daily and continually do: forum lynching, sarcasms, diversions, as well as pure lies – as will probably occur right below.

        • I forgot my main point: a big thanks for your « it was on the ‘need help?’ box on my youtube account page ». I would use that info should the temporary ban reappear.
          Please take my words for just what they are: we can’t know each others, so it is paramount to be clear and accurate to NOT get confused with the (numerous and well organised) wrongdoers.

    Works!

  • James says:

    Worked for me!

  • Mason says:

    Believe it or not. This doesn’t work. It never has.

    • Peter Stavrou says:

      This does work depending on the situation and I have tested it with my own account.
      It only doesn’t work if you have been blocked from commenting.

      • david law says:

        how do you check if you have been blocked from commenting

      • Michel Merlin says:

        « It only doesn’t work if you have been blocked from commenting. »
        So we must conclude that Youtube is blocking masses of people with no reason and no notification. Can you explain why? or are you simply a Youtube shill blindly relaying their propaganda?

        • Susan says:

          I have not been blocked anywhere. I have reached out to channel owners via their email addresses, they have confirmed I am not blocked.
          At this point, @Michel Merlin, I’m with you: YouTube is blocking masses of people without notification, *AND* Peter Stavrou is a YouTube shill.
          I have surrendered, looks like I will have to (a) create a new YouTube profile; (b) export my existing videos to my new profile; and (c) re-subscribe to all the YouTube channels to which I had already subscribed on the so-called “blocked” profile. This will, indeed, be a royal pain in my #FuckingAss.

          • Angela says:

            Read through your last comment slowly and carefully-then pause and reflect. This may be why no one likes you.

        • Angela says:

          YouTube isn’t blocking you. The creator of the page you want to comment on is blocking you. If you have been trolling or flaming them (even if they deserve it) they have the power to block you from commenting on a video they uploaded on their account page.

          • Susan says:

            Angela – I am personal friends with two of the creators. I do not flame them. I reached out to them on their personal email, asked if I had been blocked in error. Both replied that they had *NOT* blocked me. I explained to them what was happening, and they were 100% clueless.

            I shall breathlessly await your next brilliant idea…

          • “Angela” 20 jun 09:17 +1000 « The creator of the page… is blocking you »
            This sort of unpleasant ungrounded affirmation can probably NOT have a positive effect (or intent).
            « If you have been trolling… »
            Please don’t assume without reason on others bad attitudes that you would probably NOT appreciate to see thrown without reason at yourself.
            Let’s rather recognize the truth: the most probable is that FBI-GOOGLE-YOUTUBE are harassing and “Bigbrothering” citizens then, as a cover-up, accusing their victims instead of themselves . We can unfortunately little to this.

  • Susan says:

    Thanks for you response Alex, it has started working again and perhaps you are correct. I do comment against all the crap going on so we all know how “truth speak” is not acceptable to the powers that be.

  • Susan B says:

    Nothing I do works, I even turned off my AdBlocker and still not working. I can let the Video run for long while and still does not work, I can refresh over and over again still does not work. Help.

  • Karen says:

    Thanks! it worked for me.
