Banned from YouTube!

I'm banned from YouTube! I went to upload my daily vlog Friday night and my YouTube page said ACCOUNT SUSPENDED! WTF!


We'd like to inform you that due to repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines (http://www.youtube.com/t/community_guidelines) your YouTube account kgreenel has been suspended. After review we determined that activity in your account violated our Community Guidelines, which prohibit spam, scams or commercially deceptive content. Please be aware that you are prohibited from accessing, possessing or creating any other YouTube accounts. For more information about account terminations and how our Community Guidelines are enforced, please visit our Help Center at https://support.google.com/youtube/bin/answer.py?answer=92486&hl=en-US.

Everything is gone from my account! Every video that I've posted is gone. Luckily I back up all of my vlogs to an external hard drive so I still have them. All of my history, playlists, and favorites are GONE! I've searched for different ways to get my account back. I filled out useless online forms that generate the same lame reply. Do any humans work for YouTube? 

Until I can sort this out my channel is on pause. I'm still recording daily vlogs and Filofax videos. I just have no where to put them. 

I also don't understand why I'm prohibited from accessing, possessing or creating any other YouTube accounts. Are you kidding me! I barely watch TV anymore. So I've been accessing from another account. I'm not sure if I want to reload everything there and risk getting shut down again. 

I was so surprised by the number of people who tweeted @Youtube asking them to reinstate my account. 

When I figure out what I'm doing to do I promise to update you. I'm going to end it here before I get upset again and go into a childish full on temper tantrum. 

If your wondering why I'm banned. I think it has to do with an incident that took place over the summer. My channel was botted. Some spammer or machine viewed a handful of my video's 1,000's of times one video had over 10,000 views. YouTube figured out that those weren't legit views because it happened quickly within the span of a few hours and the countries where the views came from were inconsistent with where my views usually come from. This resulted in strikes against my account. I did not bot my own channel but "I'm responsible for everything that happens on my channel (bots, spammers etc), according to YouTube. I also had a copyright issue from my friends wedding but I acknowledged it, removed that video and re uploaded it. 

If anyone knows how to get in touch with YouTube, please let me know. 

XoXo
