My YouTube channel has officially been terminated!
I have spent countless hours giving away everything I know about penetration testing and information security; and I have never asked for anything in return. But things have changed and now I need your help. To those of you who are still with me: I am asking that you send YouTube and Google emails defending the credibility and value of my channel in an attempt to have the suspension revoked.
After receiving notice that my YouTube account has been suspended for violations pertaining to "spam, scams, or commercially deceptive content," I immediately sent an appeal to YouTube. However, as of today, my appeal has been rejected. This leaves me with no other conventional options other than simply accepting my channel's fate. Acceptance is NOT an option.
Anyone who knows me or my channel knows that I do not send out spam, scam my viewers, or mislead my subscribers. I teach legitimate penetration testing concepts and techniques that are relevant to information security. I've been a YouTube verified partner for nearly 2 years and have generated thousands of dollars in ad revenue for them. My reputation and the legitimacy of my channel is reflected in my 1:100 dislike:like ratio, 17,000+ subscribers, and 2,500+ daily views.
YouTube has stripped me of my identity, and left me in the cold. They've taken my livelihood, my resume, and my credibility. It is as if the last 2 years of my life never existed.
My channel was regarded by many to be the best of its kind. It was an invaluable resource to thousands of people, including students, teachers, and security professionals. Don't forget who taught you how to create an evil twin access point, capture login credentials on a WiFi Pineapple, crack WPS pins and WPA/WPA2 encryption, eavesdrop on VoIP phone calls, and so much more.
Thank you for your support,
