YouTube Question Where did the likely spam comment section go

In studio both on mobile and desktop the likely spam section is now gone. I asked YouTube and they said that it has always worked in a way that it is only available when YouTube has detected a potential spam comment and places it in that section. Is this a Mandela Effect thing :laughing: because I remember it being a permanent section along with held for review and comments. Anybody else notice this?

Same for Studio app...only published and held for review show up. I think YouTube is experimenting though because I did notice another change within analytics of a new section popping up

I had this yesteday so some people still seem to have it . I found a comment that wasnt spam but had been listed as such and it was in that tab.
Maybe they're getting rid of it which would be a shame.

Did you actually have any spam in there? it’s possible that if you have no spam in there, the section won’t show until you have some spam. It’s also a possible new change as I just got a notification earlier last week that comments in those sections are removed after 60 days and I have some from 3 years ago (‘my strategy being if it stays hidden no one sees it, but if you delete it, the commentor will know and might try to call you out on it or troll you, so I usually leave them hidden)

so my guess is that you have nothing in that section anyway and possibly it will only show if there’s spam, otherwise it might be one of many visibility bugs floating around youtube. Keeping in mind there’s a big bug in thier captioning right now with the newest update to YouTube.

I still have a "likely spam" section in the comments on mine. This is on the Chrome browser

Just got an update that they are experimenting with merging likely spam with held for review

That is what youtube initally said, that the likely spam section only appears when you do have spam but I know that is not how it worked before. I only asked because sometimes certain words triggered a comment into going to the spam section but it was a legit comment.
I did just get update from youtube that they are indeed experimenting with removing this so some people no longer have the section and others still do

I got the same pop up saying it has been moved to the bottom of the page. But scroll as I might... there is no bottom to the page. Has anyone found where they moved it? Capture.JPG

I just got the notification today when going to comments saying that they merged, so now the "likely spam" section is gone on my end too.

I am seeing comments in my notification area, but they do not show up in the comment tab. The portion I can read in the notification makes it look like trollish... but it is not in the regular comments, or the held for review. They are just not there. Now the trolls are accusing me of deleting comments... I probably would delete them... but I cannot find them.

I have completely lost my spam section. It is not merged, just gone. Odd...
