    Hi there!

    Just want to know if youtube can ban me or close my channel if I send many private messages to many people!

    And if yes, when youtube decides to ban the account?

    Thanks!

    YouTube can ban you for anything that a normal user shouldn't be doing or anything they just don't like. Mass PMing users is definitely a way to get banned quickly. We don't know when they will ban your account, that is up to the moderators/admins. It could happen the second 1 user reports your message and says they believe it is spam.

    So if I make some fake account for the spam (mess with link to my channel) my channel and my original account will remain safe?

    What about IP block?

    It depends what you are spamming. If you are advertising your original account/channel, you will risk ban. Use a proxy if you are afraid about IP block.
