This past few days, i've heard a lot of people getting their YouTube accounts banned or videos removed from Using Vagex and other view boosting sites and services. Some of these people claimed that they only use Vagex and nothing else but still received the following email:
This following video was found in Violation of TOU #4 Section H:
You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, "robots," "spiders," or "offline readers," that accesses the Service in a manner that sends more request messages to the YouTube servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a conventional on-line web browser. Notwithstanding the foregoing, YouTube grants the operators of public search engines permission to use spiders to copy materials from the site for the sole purpose of and solely to the extent necessary for creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials. YouTube reserves the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific cases. You agree not to collect or harvest any personally identifiable information, including account names, from the Service, nor to use the communication systems provided by the Service (e.g., comments, email) for any commercial solicitation purposes. You agree not to solicit, for commercial purposes, any users of the Service with respect to their Content."
Please note that your video content has been removed. You may reupload your removed videos in such a way that is not violative of our TOU.
YouTube takes the abuse of its system very seriously. Any user found gaming views, subscribers, meta-data or otherwise misleading users will have their account statistics wiped on the first offense, and on the second offense have their account permanently terminated.
Many users trust their account to outside marketers who claim to be able to increase views, etc. You are responsible for activity that happens on your account, and are responsible for knowing and abiding by our terms - this means understanding the nature of the traffic on your channel and making sure you are in compliance with our terms.

NOW, i do understand that if you break the rules, there are consequences but the problem is that there also those who claim that they have never purchased or unnaturally increase their views in any way but still got their account banned or videos removed and received the same email message above. Click here for more info.
Could they have been sabotage??? If my competition once me out, he or she could simply add get my video removed or account banned by giving me free views...yes? Make sense? What do you think? You think YouTube is being too hard and not thinking properly or is this some kind of glitch or something to scare Video Marketers etc who use services to increase their views etc. ?
By the way, anyone received that message?
Will check back in the morning
