- You need to generate a minimum level of content and get a minimum level of subscribers in order for your channel to be monetized.
- If your channel is not monetized then it will be less likely to be recommended. This will mean that only the people you contact directly via Facebook, FreeRepublic, etc. will know your videos exist.
- If YouTube doesn't like your content then they can place it in Parental Control or Reserved or Private status. This means it can't be seen from school, library, or other public computers.
- If you don't lock down comments, then your videos can be deleted if liberals use fake accounts to put nasty comments on your videos. However, if you do lock down comments then people tend to skip the videos. It's human nature to want to say something positive or negative after spending an hour or so watching a video.
That being said, it sounds like a good idea. It could be somewhat successful, but it will be a lot of effort for potentially little reward.
So to put it one way, Google could potentially shut me up, but they can't shut us all up. Honestly there's no reason for them to try, it's public domain and "historical" work.
"for potentially little reward"
I'm looking to make sure that those around me are more educated. So my "reward" considering the difficulty of removal is highly rewarding. Above I used an example of the Federalist Papers. For our goals,(I mean you in this, too) there is great value and reward in the existence of an audiobook alternative to only the existence of a print version, and/or an improved revision. From an entirely educational standpoint, I already know my own personal benefit here.
People around here are too money focused.
