I wrote a text that I published on Medium. Using their "listen" feature I recorded the text & made a screen recording of the cursor moving through the text. I added a few more elements & made a movie from it called "Maintaining a Normal Social Life with Zombies". This movie stayed on YouTube since Marhc or April of 2022. Then on March 7, 2023, I got the following email from YouTube:

I appealed the banning too but I more or less took it for granted that it wouldn't do any good. In my appeal I asked the YouTube people something like: Are you trying to make everyone like machines? Without a sense of humor? - because, if so, you're doing a good job. Much to my amazement they reversed their ruling the same day:
