    Every time you go there for help, you receive very unhelpful, redundant replies and/or critical assumptions from other "experts."

    Exactly. Almost none of the experts are helpful. It's been like this forever, but it's worse now.

    These pseudo-experts are very judgmental, arrogant, incompetent, quick to criticize you if things go wrong and give you the runaround.

    We try following their tired ass "advice tips" and "support guides" and nothing still gets fucking resolved, yet, they will try to find anything to blame us for these problems.
    They keep sending us scripted "advice" from the same tired ass site: https://support.google.com/youtube/?hl=en#topic=4355266

    All problems are not created equal! We cannot rely on these simple answers to YouTube's currently complex issues, which affects many users.

    There are people facing things like monetization problems, copyright and copyfraud issues, spam issues, harassment, and even pedophilia and privacy invasion without any prevention or solutions on YouTube's end.

    These "experts" also have the fucking nerve to continuously insult our intelligence by stating that all feedback, reviews, counter notifications, and appeals are reviewed by human beings. Nearly all of YouTube's messages are auto-generated. I just submitted a counter notification for one of my videos with proof that I possess the rights to post one of my tracks, yet, it still gets rejected. If humans are indeed reviewing and making these decisions, then many of them might need to be fired and replaced.

    If you even get your account disabled for no specific reason, experts will say, "Well DUH, YouTube said you were spamming, so it must be true. I mean you are using a free service, so they don't owe you shit. Go continue molesting the appeal form a few more times and hope for a different response, or complain elsewhere."

    What's the fucking point of having a help forum if you cannot help us with anything?

    They are also going to completely delete the currently closed, read-only YouTube Monetization forum after September 2016 for no real reason: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/monetization-on-youtube/Hb0vNYGYNJM

    Check out any of the complaints and try to find just one competent solution from any of the "experts" here: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/youtube

    And believe it or not, I talked to Google over the phone twice and they don't help with shit either!

    YouTube needs to invest a little money into actual good customer support, especially for all of YouTube Partners who help make YouTube what it is now.
    Google is a mean pimp and the YouTubers, the products, are the submissive hoes. It's like we can't have a voice! YouTube is no better than your government or local welfare offices. Fuck this shit.

    Oh you were talking about help support. I thought you meant youtube social forums like yttalk or something.
    But yeah help support won't really help you unless you're one of their big money makers with over a 1 million subscribers.

    You're just another number to them and easily replaceable

    Most support forums you are going to find someone or a few people that will copy and paste the thing you looked at before you posted the thread.

    I often times will include in my threads links or references to things I have already researched.
