I recall some years back, Markiplier did a live stream of his A Heist with Markiplier
, which was a choose-your-adventure "game" on YouTube. Since there were diverging paths, Markipler told his fans to spam certain emojis as a form of voting to choose where to go.
Unfortunately, the spamming emojis caused an automated system to suspended the fans' Google/YouTube accounts. Eventually, due to the outcry, the fans' accounts were reinstated, though not without some casualty done to their data.
I wasn't part of the streaming personally, but after hearing what happend, it occured to me how scary it was that Google/YouTube had the power to just shut down everything, it shook me enough to get a Dropbox account, and put my more personal stuff from Drive to Dropbox. But apperently I didn't learn my lesson well enough…
