How can flagging user comments for spam on my video result in my vid getting deleted?

    This has happened twice this week . The first video taked down had over 16 million views. As soon as I flagged a couple of comments for spam , my video that has existed for 1 and a half year got taken down.
    5 mins ago another video that was getting around 2500 views daily got taken down as soon as I flagged a couple of comments as spam!? Could it be a bug in YT system that reads comments getting flagged as spam as your video getting flagged as spam. Feeling depressed right now :(

    btw the videos were against YT TOS but they remained fine as long as I didn't flag other peoples comments.

    Edit: The first video, I actually approved more spammy comments but did flag comments but only 2.

    I'm guessing whoever was spamming your videos probably flagged yours down.

    But the first video I talk about recieved 100 or so dislikes in 1 hour just 2 days after it was uploaded back in 2011. Whoever mass disliked it probably also mass flagged it but that had no effect but me flagging or actually accepting spammy comments took it down? something is not right :(

    What do u mean? I never mass flag or even flag competition. I just flagged few comments(on my video) as spam because they were like : "this video sucks , check out watchV=gvbjkjuhBlahBlah"
