Are you sure they weren't just following their internal procedures?

If content is "ok" by YouTube Terms of Use and Community Guidelines
(not removed) but not ok (objectionable) in a certain country,  then
it's up to a national authority to make sure that content can't be
viewed by it's citizens.

I would certainly not be happy to see a global "content police" arise.



Is it only me, or does anyone else find it quite ironic that on a list
devoted to end to end issues, we don't enjoy this end to end
connectivity (posts being "moderated").
