Why am I considered as bot by youtube?
1
I was not considered as a subscriber to Nathan Rich's channel while in fact I subscribed to his channel long time ago. And his channel's subscriber count is being reduced constantly by "someone"(his most recent video got 2000 comments and 10k within 4 hours, yet he only got 450 subscribers). Youtube, please stop manually reducing his subscriber count by categorize many of his viewers as bot, just censor the video if you don't like what he is saying and exposing.  
TL:DR
Youtube is deliberately reducing one of the channel I subscribed to (with clear evidence) make someone's voice unheard to the rest of the public.  NICE FREEDOM OF SPEECH RIGHT THERE. NO EVIL.
I PASSED reCAPTCHA's TEST, GUESS I AM NOT A BOT. XD

Thanks for the reply. I would like to have Youtube remove me from your "Bot List". I think I've done enough to prove that I am not a spam/bot/inactive subscribe.  And if you want I can complete more reCAPTCHA to prove I am indeed not a bot. (TBH I am Beta Go). But it still hard to believe that a video creator  that get around 2500 comments every video have only around 1000 "actual" subscriber. Guess his subscriber is actually really "active". :)

Or he could be buying views. There are nefarious (and policy violating) ways of inflating one's stats as well (not that I'm saying he's doing it, just that it is something that people do). People also buy subscribers, which is why YouTube does audit passes to scrub invalid subscriptions. Legitimate subscribers who haven't interacted with the channel in a long time are also removed (subscribers that don't interact with the channel are actually harmful to channel stats).
 
He could also be in a niche where people will watch his videos, but not subscribe. Myself, I have an electronics tutorial channel where someone might search up and watch one of my videos for a guide on something, but they might not necessarily subscribe, because it was a one-time thing.
 
I've attached a screenshot of a page in the YouTube settings, and have marked a setting that, if enabled, will keep your name from showing in his list of subscribers. Your subscription will still be counted into his total, but it won't show in the list (which I again reiterate is highly inappropriate for him to have published publicly).

I'm not a bot, and I have a hell of a time passing those idiotic reCaptcha photo tests. ReCaptcha is the devil. I'm not on YouTube at the moment, because I can't get there without debasing myself to the algorithm and passing a ReCaptcha photo test.
