I have been making this suggestion for some time now and even expressed it to JEM. A person have to come up with a app like YouTube and put in all the Jewish content. How many videos were taken down by youtbe due to shluchim expressing their believe of the Rebbes words? How many videos were taken down about prayers help for covid etc… just like before the jewish press came out all yidden went to see the news through goyish newspapers. Finally someone had the idea to start the jewish press and then all the jewish newspapers followed. Same… Read more »

Even if they had just taken it down on purpose, it’s their site, they are not obligated to host anything people want to put up. But if they received a DMCA takedown notice they had to take it down. They are required by the DMCA to react immediately to any takedown notice they receive, and only then to investigate and decide whether to put it back up. There are supposed to be serious penalties for issuing a fraudulent notice, but that is never enforced. That’s not Youtube’s fault, it’s the government’s, for not bothering to enforce the law.

Time to move to Rumble?
The complaint against the channel was just the excuse used to shut it down. The real reason is the marxists in power are fighting against anything G-dly. As all communists do. Good luck trying to beg your way back into their good graces because you will forever remain at their mercy. Quit thinking according to the rules of fairness and good behavior. The abuse against you was not earned and is not your fault. Be prepared for more.

We are successfully transitioning from covert sabotage to overt tyranny. Psychological warfare. YouTube deflects the blame to Mr moshiach so you will innocently pay attention to some ridiculous complaint which could very well have been written by someone in twitter and is easily proven false by minimal research that Twitter can easily do themselves, if they only wanted to. They obviously do not want to….
Reach your own conclusions accordingly. The rules of the game have changed. Continuing to play by the old rules will garantee you lose in the end. Plan accordingly.

so we can correspond with these haters, what was the old url please?

How do you know it was a young person?

Anyone – young or old, Jew or non-Jew – can falsify info and present it to YouTube under a “pen name”.
Switch to Rumble or JewTube. People that seek the Rebbe’s truth will find JEM.

It doesn't matter who hosts it

If they get a DMCA takedown notice they *have* to take the material down. No service in the USA is exempt. The only answer is to go after the person who sent the fake notice.

Social media alternative

This is why alternatives such as rumble and parler are so important…but actually I’d rather see our own because even a frum site would block chabad

No more ads “innocently” asking if Yoshke celebrated Chanukah?
There’s no way to complain to YouTube about those, apparently.

(Those kinds of ads seem to show up often above Kosher videos. Be very careful on YouTube.)

Bh JEM’s channel is back up

little chance for reinstatement
December 3, 2021 11:48 am

I am quite familiar YT
they simply have too many jhating Pakistanis and Bangladeshis and self-hating Js working there for you to have a chance at reinstatement

it used to be much worse, but these types have always permitted antisemitism at YT – shockingly compared to all other discrimination
