What would you like to do?
Based on the Community Guidelines sent by YouTube directly to me via email. It is clearly stated that my YouTube account was terminated specifically due to "Spam, scams or commercially deceptive content are not allowed on YouTube."
I have thought thoroughly and this might be related to my recent spike in video uploads. I have been using YouTube to upload my educational videos, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and many more in my native language, Malay and Chinese. I suspect that the reason my channel is terminated because I have been uploading videos to YouTube non-stop and might have triggered a "spam" detection. Most video contents in my channel are related to online video conferencing sessions with my teachers teaching school subjects mentioned above.
I believe that this might be a false positive and please have a human person to review my YouTube channel. I would like to get in touch with a human representative. I sincerely apologize and please reconsider this appeal. Thank you.

The YouTube Team
I have been uploading educational videos recently related to my online class sessions using Google Meet, Zoom and Cisco Webex video conferencing platforms. I chose YouTube as my default platform because it is easy to use and almost everyone around me uses it. Some of my classmates missed their classes and I, as one of their friend is responsible to record such conference sessions for them to study and catch up on the classes they have missed.
The first time my video has been flagged is related to a Google Meet recording session where I uploaded to YouTube with my teacher`s teaching session in it. I don`t know why it was flagged and my teacher was speaking in my native language. The video does not contain any inappropriate footage and I do not see why it would.
I demand a clear explanation for why this channel has been terminated. Please do not link me to community guidelines as it is NOT even related to any of my videos. Point me to the EXACT video why this channel is terminated.
