Youtube never mentioned what they intend to do with the ad revenue. I think I generated about $50 in ad profits for myself through the videos that were posted. They could just absorb my profit into their account and say, “too bad”. The monetizing is partly why I was motivated to continue uploading videos onto their website. It was an exciting experiment to see what grabs peoples attention.
Here is the message from Youtube in my email:

The YouTube Team
The Jailbait calls bothered me and I wanted to bring some attention to it. Apparently, my bringing attention to it, in turn, brought negative attention against myself personally and I further got this email from Youtube:
We’d like to inform you that due to repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines (http://www.youtube.com/t/community_guidelines) your YouTube account eauclaire101 has been suspended.

This is the video that Youtube is referring to: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2edu0r_younow-scan-jan8-7pm_fun
So, I’m being labelled as a sexual predator by Youtube and now my other Youtube account could get banned as well. As of this time it still works: www.youtube.com/user/Acumagnet I guess it’s just a matter of time before Youtube bans that account too then.
I had about 600 videos on that account and they all were removed from Youtube.
I’m just glad that Youtube has some active competitors still, like Dailymotion. I have a few videos on Dailymotion, but I never took it that seriously. Now, I don’t feel very safe posting videos on Youtube anymore and will turn to their competitors a little more.
