I just created a shorts channel aside from my main channel because I don't want to interrupt the flow of longer videos on the main channel plus I don't want the music I use on the shorts to cause any business issues as it has that silly clause "youtube music is for personal use only" blah. Anyway, I seem to have attracted a bot and I'm assuming this is a porn bot. Assuming because I have turned off 'allow URLs in the comments" just because of this reason and it doesn't post their pr0n links. Unless someone knows of some reason these would get posted to the comments? I would love to know :) thanks

Bots are so freaking annoying... we have URL's turned off too.. Have you considered putting some of the words that these bots are mentioning in your block words list? Unless someone on your channel really needs to say "savior" or "pure beaver" that could always help, but quite often their spam words will change.

Other than that... enjoy the click, and watch time, and delete the comment!! :)

Today I learned about a block list on YouTube. Where can we find the block words list?

In Studio, go to the Settings, then Community. You can add any words to want to block. I got a list from someone on a forum a few years ago (this forum maybe?). It has around 900 words, mostly optional spellings of each word (2 full doc pages).
