Sky Does Everything YouTuber, NetNobody, frustrated after YouTube ban

"Absolute clowns, banning people on their platform for literally supporting their platform..."

A frustrated YouTube creator with nearly 50 million views on the platform has expressed his disdain at the fact that YouTube banned him over watching a video uploaded on the platform itself during one of his live streams.

Adam “NetNobody” Dahlberg is a YouTube creator who was formerly known as “Sky Does Minecraft”, gaining popularity over his initial Minecraft videos on YouTube. After amassing a huge amount of subscribers – north of 10 million, Dahlberg moved on to other genres and renamed his channel to “Sky Does Everything.”

“It's almost like they don't want to actually be a streaming platform,” tweeted Dahlberg.

While Dahlberg is prolific on his main channel, he is also active in a secondary channel known as NetNobody where the YouTuber predominantly posts music videos that's he's produced. As of now, Dahlberg uses the alias NetNobody across all major platforms to identify himself.

It is worth noting Dahlberg has been active on YouTube ever since 2011, meaning that the YouTuber is quite familiar with the platform's Terms of Service.

During one of his recent live streams, Dahlberg was watching Sword Art Online, a YouTube video. Because of this, he was slapped with a three-month ban from the platform.

Explaining the nature of the ban and the irony of it, Dahlberg exclaimed saying, “This is why YouTube will never be taken seriously for streaming.”

“Wow, @TeamYouTube is literally banning me for 3 months on YouTube for watching content on my stream, FROM YOUTUBE. Absolute clowns, banning people on their platform for literally supporting their platform. Alright guys, who am I switching to?” wrote the YouTuber.

After a user replied to Dahlberg asking him to migrate to Twitch, Dahlberg replied saying, “I guess I may have to.”

Incidents such as these highlight streaming and video-sharing platforms including Twitch and YouTube's technical ability to enforce their Terms of Service correctly and it's causing financial and emotional stress for creators.

The uncalled-for ban in Dahlberg's case stands as an epitome of streaming platforms' policing gone wrong.
