    Seriously guys, this shit is getting out of control. Calm down with the reporting, will you? Like seriously, why don't we focus on outranking each other instead just flag competitors all the time, like freaking morons? Can't BHW just make a pact of some kind? Damn...

    I agree completely - had a massively profitable channel flagged down a week ago, just going to get it back up there.

    He is talking about shitty flagger kids, who take your videos down after your hard work.
    Agreed with OP

    Unfortunately you can't do anything about it. So learn to adapt.

    I lost 2 videos that were making me about $300 a month each due to flagging. Needless to say I have moved on from youtube since then. Sad.

    I stopped using youtube too because as soon as my video would start making me money,it would get flagged.Just see who replaced your spot when you got flagged and that's probably who did it.

    Yes that will be me, I do not even like charging for it, as I enjoy it that much, I feel like I am robbing people.

    Nothing you can do and they won't listen if you open a thread here. I once had a video ranking #1 for a term. After a few days I saw a comment on my vid - "i'm gonna flag the shit out of your video". My video was gone the next day.

    Yes my whole channel gone as well. Well they flagged one video and deleted it but left my other 5 videos then the next day they closed my account. I thought it was my main competitor but i noticed his were gone as well. Very annoying.

    It will never stop. Where there is one person doing it to another, that person wants to get revenge and does it back to everyone and then it's just a snowball effect. The fact that this shit is even possible to be done still is beyond me. This is way more serious than spam, etc. etc. YouTube should have tackled this issue a long time ago.

    Would be great, but its not going to happen.
    You just have to adjust to it. Always have a already boosted, unlisted, slightly altered, copy of your video behind so if you get taken down you can replace it immediately.

    I only flag those idiots who copy my hard work using my own flagger bot.
