To Arms! Join the YouTubers Union."

My name is Jörg, I am a German, a professional YouTube creator 52 years of age, actually 53 very soon, and I'm here to talk to you about a very serious issue. I have been a “YouTube Partner” for many many years. they awarded me with the silver and the golden play award.

Discrimination, by categorizing completely different videos into the same group. Total intransparency. Sudden change of rules and values. “Community Guidelines” that are softer than a sponge and more elastic than rubber. In short: The adpocalypse. ... (Read more here):
