The issue in GetHuman-jimjacku's own words
I went home after going to the post office. I removed my Samsug S* Edge phone from the protective leather cover that I bought from a Verizon store where I bought the phone. When I removed my phone from the leather cover, my You Tube App was shut down and not working. I tried to restart the You Tube App using a number of different methods, but non worked. Only my You Tube App was not operating properly. About * weeks ago I noticed that my phone had an erroneous recovery address. I started working on how to eliminate the wrong recovery address, but as I became involved in living my life I forgot about the erroneous recovery address. My belief is that the erroneous recovery address caused my problem today when I tried to use my You Tube App. Today my phone exhibited problems of not booting up and not being responsive to any of my attempts to get my You Tube App working. I down loaded an antivirus app from the availble Apps on my phone and ran it. The App removed *.* gigabytes from my phone during the anti-virus run that I executed. I think that I removed the bad incorrect recovery address. Afterwards, I re-entered my correct recovery address into my phone and received positive confirmations that I have my correct regular, and my correct recovery addresses. Also I filled in some of the key security items in the expanded Security section of the phone to protect my identity. After completing the above work items I tried to restart You Tube, however, I could not get You Tube to operate, and as of this time nothing that I have tried has worked. It is also important to know that when I tried to start up You Tube multiple times, and trying a number of different ideas I still was not able to start up You Tube. However, while trying out the various ideas, I started receiving from my phone a suggestion a number of times to remove my name and passwords, then to reinstall my identity and passwords for both normal and recovery passwords to see if that would get You Tube to start up. One problem that I have is that I do not know where to remove my name and passwords for trying out the suggestion. There are multiple places in the phone where my name and passwords are typed and documented. The next problem that I have is that the notice from You Tube stated that I had broken "Community Standards" which I know is absolutely wrong. I had one Community Standard violation late last year and it should have been removed a long time ago. However, since I only use You Tube for my own use by myself and do not publish anything from You Tube to anyone else, I cannot break any Community Standard because I only make up titles of the news items I want to keep as reference information for myself. Therefore since I do not publish anything to any one I cannot possibly violate any Community Standard. If anything from my phone got published it could only have been done by the imposter who got a hold of my You Tube inentory of topics. This item is very important to me!!! I do not want to loose all of the topics that I read and studied, and therefore if the method used to restore my You Tube App cause me to loose all of the items that I read and saved I would loose a great amount of work and valuable information. Since You Tube allows, permits, and does not censor the persons who are posting their various stories, comments, information, and all of the many many other things which it permits to be published* there has been no censoring of what gets posted so my use and reading of all those items have already been cleared by You Tube. Separately, in the United States of America we do have the right of free speech regardless if it is spoken or printed. Therefore, I am requesting You Tube to reinstate everything that wss saved by me along with the titles that I created for all of those items. Therefore, I need the professional help of You Tube to reinstate all of my news items which were published by You Tube without prejudice against any of them. Additionally, I am ** years old and I use You Tube as a respite for my relaxation. When I read the information from You Tube that it created copies of my material from You Tube, and that I had to request the copies from You Tube I was pleased to know that I could get my work reinstated. There is one last item I need to explain, because I am not certain as to whether it is relevant. When I create titles for You Tube news items, I create an excessive number of title copies to assure myself that I will not loose them by me accidentsly brushing over the titles when I am searching for something that I read and wanted to tie it together with other previous You Tube news items. So if You Tube is concerned about the number of copies that I make for news items which I am going to save, the only reason I do that is because I do not loose the items. As I said above, I am not planing on publishing anything, I am just keeping the news articles for my own edification. If that is a significant concern for You Tube, I cannot go through my library of news items and pare down the number of copies that I keep for my use.
