How does Youtube deal with fake traffic (botting) and censorship?

Tue Aug 06, 2019 3:31 am

I'm in a pickle.

I suspect one, big Youtuber of using bots to create fake, low effort comments, in order to generate traffic on his channel. Same accounts keep posting things like "great", "like" etc. on nearly every video. Those accounts have no content on their channel, just 1 sub. This particular Youtuber also deletes every negative comment on his channel. Not talking hate nor foul language - ANY criticism is wiped out, basically. False marketing and traffic.

My question is, how does Youtube deal with it, if at all? What can be done with it? Is there any way to check/scan/get proof? Or should I just ignore it and accept it's a common practic? Is it okay to delete every negative comment there is? Feels like cheating, in my humble opinion.

Thank you in advance.
