Apparently repeated and abusive threats are "not a violation of community guidelines"

Someone who's YT channel I follow has had hundreds of nasty and threatening posts made to them, and this commenter also targets anyone who leaves comments on the channel that they're attacking. I made the mistake of leaving a comment, and immediately got an abusive reply. Because this person can somehow delete their comments you only ever see them in your inbox. Finally i got a grnuinely threatening one, and *tried* to report to Google..

Here is their reply...

 It does seem they only give a damn if you upload material they "don't agree" with, but it's perfectly OK to threaten anyone whatsoever as long as you delete your comments after. Having 20 different accounts is OK, apparently too, it seems, such as this person has, always opening a new one to continue the threats .. so if it is for the purposes of threatening others, they seem perfectly OK with multiple phony accounts. There is NO possible way that these names could EVER be confused wiyth "real" names

Google, you are a sham.. and a bunch of hypocrites. Claiming to be against internet harrasment and doing NOTHING when a legitimate case appears
