HOw can you avoid it? How does youtube flag your comments automatically as spam? Seems very random to me. What's even more weird is that a lot of legitimate comments by regular users get flagged too. But today was just bad. I posted 20 comments, and about 12 of them were automatically flagged as spam, when I checked on them. This was done on a new account. Comments were not repetitive. Most of the comments were flagged under very popular videos, and a few on not so popular. Can anybody outline some things that trigger this?
