YouTube Says microUSB Cables are Inappropriate and Offensive Now


So I recently did a 58 second long video of me unpacking a pack of three microUSB cables and YouTube flagged it as inappropriate and offensive content and put a strike on my account for it.

Really?  What is offensive about microUSB cables? Someone please tell me!


YouTube of course won’t answer me as to what is offensive or inappropriate about microUSB cables.

In the video all I said was the name, price, where you can get them, and I showed the cables but somehow it was offensive. I don’t understand and I don’t know why they won’t tell me what the reasoning is here?!

All my videos are really the same I unbox and sometimes do video reviews but now all of the sudden an unboxing or unpacking is offensive to the powers that be at YouTube.

it makes no sense to me.

Review of Ohuhu Anti Shock & Folding Trekking Pole / Hiking Pole


Sadly I need to use a cane to walk these days but a regular cane isn’t the best for hiking or even walking in the woods so that’s where the product I have for review today comes in from Ohuhu. The product is a trekking or hiking pole that can collapse to be easily taken with you. It’s a decent product for sure, I like it a lot. Read on to learn more…
