YouTube's Playlist Policing

I've just shut down ALL my youtube playlists, and taken them private. I had a load of playlists featuring the current dancers, like Sahar and Ghazal and Shakira. I've had three of those lists deleted by YT, for "breaching community guidelines". Which of course they didn't, they consisted of perfectly ok dance videos, nothing indecent, nothing fetishistic, nothing weird. But there's no appeal procedure, as far as I can see. So I can't complain to YT (I have done a very annoyed tweet, though!)

I wanted to keep all my playlists intact, because I like to know where I can find stuff, especially when I'm "researching" for teaching purposes. I can't afford for people to be reporting my playlists and them getting deleted for no reason, so I've made all my playlists private, and never mind building community. Sorry to anyone who's ever checked out any of my playlists.

If any of them gets deleted now, it's a breach of my privacy and I'll have the civil liberties lot on them!

And now I have to painstakingly rebuild those playlists.
