12 years ago I put up my song about 911 called "Out Of the Blue". Now, for some reason they have flagged it and called it "inappropriate for those under 18". I really have no idea why? Is it the imagry? The lyrics? My rotten singing? My piano playing? smile I've asked them to explain but doubt I will get an answer. If you can see why please let me know.

I liked your song. Yeah, I guess the images depict violence, suffering and loss. I liked how you ended on the two structures as they were before the destruction.

They're nuts. It is a lovely song all round. Somebody got their algorithms in a twist there. I have seen and heard things on Youtube that are disturbing, and don't have this kind of flagging.

The song is lovely. The video imagery is too real. We've seen the footage on TV for a while when the event occurred. Some people don't like to get reminded of 9-11. I don't know why the video would be flagged now when it has been online since 2008.

A lot of things happened on that day and immediate after. A lot of what we had been told didn't make sense. People posted videos online with all sorts of theories. I'm sure why some of the videos got pulled off but others stayed. A private company like Google operates under US law. In theory the US is a free country but YouTube isn't really a platform for free speech.

I think then they would have said they were flagging it because of copyright infringement. They are saying it is inappropriate for anyone under 18. That can't be the copyright.
