How does Youtube comments censoring work? Is it a fixed word list, regular expressions, or a learning AI? I sometimes get my comments deleted without clear reason


It's all that you've mentioned + channel authors can set their own words list to be censored. See i. e. at Channel level comment settings.

  • Is it possible to see somewhere a list of words and phrases they think are inappropriate?

  • I mean Youtube itself, not channel authors

I have also faced this issue several times and have contacted google support for this issue seems like you are never told who removed your comments so unless you get a strike for breaking the rules you never know who removed them.
