Do videos with millions of views get flagged less?

    So I've had lot of different videos always get deleted/flagged around the 30k/40k views mark almost every single time. I just make some more and move on. All my videos have links in the descriptions as well.

    However, I see people who have videos with millions of views with similar videos as mine and even have links in their descriptions as well but it their videos never get flagged.

    You would think that since these people get thousands of views per day, that they would get flagged even faster by random people/competition.

    So what gives? Why do these videos with over a million views never get flagged?

    i did some flagging test.

    it goes this way: more popular video = more credibility from youtube = harder to get flagged.

    really popular video need's ton of flagging to get banned.
