YouTube calls crypto-purge a mistake, but many videos are still missing? Why?

YouTube, erroneously purged cryptocurrency education videos from its video-sharing platform this week but claims to have reinstated them. Content creators, however, are telling a different story:

Responding to accusations it had intentionally deleted content from cryptocurrency education channels, ChrisDunnTV, Crypto Tips, BTC Sessions, and others, in what amounted to hundreds of missing videos, the spokesperson said YouTube made the wrong call.

“With the massive volume of videos on our site, sometimes we make the wrong call. When it’s brought to our attention that a video has been removed mistakenly, we act quickly to reinstate it. We also offer uploaders, the ability to appeal removals, and we will re-review the content,” the spokesperson said. 

YouTube has issued near-identical statements, after previous inadvertent video purges. Hmm!
