Whenever I post a comment with "五毛" it seems to magically disappear i.e. deleted. Is youtube censoring anti-China comments?

Channel owners can delete comments anytime they want so it may not be YT doing it. Also it may be getting held for review and then the channel owner deletes it when they check the help for review tab.

Channel owners can also choose to block certain keywords.

It is also possible that 'wu mao' is being considered as spam as it is basically just used as an ad hominem-style response. For example, 'stupid' could refer to a range of things: a person, his/her comments, something he/she did, an idea, a belief, a character, etc. As far as I know, 'wu mao' is only used to try to discredit people (e.g., "Shut up, wu mao"). Does the phrase have many other uses?

It's definitely not a case of keyword blocking by the uploader, because I've tried this on my own videos. Yes, I agree that calling people wumao isn't very productive, but YouTube doesn't even block ethnic slurs in comments, so this is an odd case.

why is wumao  censored? The CCP has an army of wumao. I wish youtube has a button to report these wumao

Ironically Youtube let paid 50 cents pro-communist China comments that were offensive and misleading, for example, in the comment section of most videos about the recent ongoing Hong Kong protests:
- Calling HK protesters roaches and thugs, and asking police to kill them
- Saying that HK people protests because they are lazy and has nothing better to do
- Spreading misinformation that HK protest was supported financially by USA

These comments are too many to report them one by one, and even reporting Youtube won't remove these!
