Curious if anyone else has noticed this. My friend and I thought it was "just me" until we realized it was happening to both of us. I also tested by trying to leave the same comment twice on a brand new video, and it was removed instantly both times.

I thought this was just a bug/error at first, but I've noticed it happen to me now on several different videos from multiple uploaders (so I know it's not just the uploader deleting my comment). I leave a comment, wait a few minutes, refresh the page, and it's gone.

I'm either on a black list for YT now, and/or they're blocking any comment that references "clown world". Probably other naughty words and phrases they're also blocking.

Fucking Jew Tube.

Yes it's been happening since at least November, but only to certain people. (YouTube has a personal scoring system that determines whether your comments get shadowblocked or not.)

I was going to suggest the emoji but it sounds like that can get deleted too.

Truly 🤡🌎.

They don’t care for the words commie, Wholesome, Christian either

They started to remove "clown world" in emoji form years ago - in live chat at least.

Jesus christ, I thought I was fucking crazy. I noticed it was gone but I guess didn't put two and two together.

This shit is so fucking demoralizing. Which I realize is the whole fucking point...

It would be amazing to see all their source code for all their various applications and content bots and the manual exceptions and tuning they put in place, pretending it's all black box algorithms they have no control over. My fantasy is that an anti-trust lawsuit eventually leads to that.
