Supplementary notes

"Using a combination of people and technology, we remove comments that violate our Community Guidelines. We also filter comments which we have high confidence are spam into a ‘Likely spam’ folder that creators can review and approve if they choose. This exhibit shows the volume of comments removed by YouTube for violating our Community Guidelines and filtered as likely spam which creators did not approve. The data does not include comments removed when YouTube disables the comment section on a video. It also does not include comments taken down when a video itself is removed (individually or through a channel-level suspension), when a commenter’s account is terminated, or when a user chooses to remove certain comments or hold them for review."
