    This is my testimony about the marvelous work Dr Kasee did for me. My husband abandon me and the kids and went to stay with another woman who he just met. And the woman did spell on him so that he will never have nothing to do with me and my kids.I and my kids was really suffering and it has been hell of a struggle, but I decide to do all means to make sure that my family come together as it use to, then I went on-line there I saw so many good testimonies about this spell caster called Dr Kasee whose email is (onimalovespell@gmail.com) so I had to contact him and explain my problem to him and he cast a love spell for me which i use to get my husband back and in just 24hours as he has promised, my husband return back to me and his behavior was back to the man i got married to. I cant thank the spell caster enough for what he did for me, i am so grateful and i will never stop to publish his name on the internet for the good work he has done for me,once again here is his contact email: ONIMALOVESPELL@GMAIL.COM . You can contact him for any kind of problem you are having in your marriage or relationship and i know he is there to help you.

    I felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. i tried to be strong just for the kids but i could not control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and always wish he would come back to me. I was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website: https://manifestspellcast.wordpress.com that suggested that Dr.Todd can help get ex back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try.
    I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a (Love spell) for me. 3 weeks later, my husband really called me and told me that he miss me and the kids so much, So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day, with lots of love and joy, and he apologized for his mistake, and for the pain he caused me and the kids. Then from that day, our Marriage was now stronger than how it were before. All thanks to this great man. He is so powerful and i decided to share my story on the internet that Dr. Todd is real and a powerful spell caster, if you are here and you need your Ex back or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore,

    Am so excited to share my testimony of a real spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 11yrs now. We were happily married with kids, 5 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids,He packout of the house to live with the woman and i strongly believe that she did some spell on him because even when i beg my husband to come back to me he refuse and went to live with her. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr KALA is capable of solving marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr KALA Powerful Love Spell that really works. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. Email DR KALA at: KALALOVESPELL@GMAIL.COM or call and whatsapp him on +2347051705853

    HOW I GOT MY EX BACK.
    Two months ago i sent you an email: {luraspell @g mail. com} to a spell caster about how my boyfriend left me because he felt that we were in a "rut. He started seeing another woman and it totally broke my heart. Fred and i had been together for over three years and all of this came as a total shock to me. That was when i came to you for a help and i ordered for the "Leave my man alone spell "and"Love me again spell. Three days just as the same way you told me he will call me. Fred and i started to talk again. He was still with the other woman, but communication opened up between us. I then waited for the Love me spell and 1 week latter, Fred called me. He told me that he broke up with the other woman and he regretted letting go of me physically, because he never let go of me emotionally. We are talking things slow now (because both of us are nervous), but things are totally wonderful between us. I never really thought that i would have the chance to be with Fred again. I felt like my situation was hopeless, but your spell have change my whole life. I totally praise the spirits who have help me. I am so thankful. I recommend people to contact Priest Lura today for your relationship issues. Visit his website https://bit.ly/2oxzGA1

    I am so happy to say thank you Goddess Jai Mata Sunlight for your love and understanding and bringing my husband back home. My name is manushi from Singapore but currently living in the U S. I am a Make-Up Artist by profession. My husband now, I love him so much. He left me because he suspects me of have an affair outside our marriage, That's not true! But I couldn't prove it because people especially men always calls me even at night due to my work as a make-up and a fashion designer who works so hard to get where I am today and refuse to give-up my career for anything not even marriage. And we've been having this misunderstanding,.. and also lack of sex made it all worst. And then he left because he couldn't bear it. But when he left, I started noticing that I am nothing without him because we've both worked hard together just to get there and all we need was understanding,.. But he was nolonger there to call. I tried all options to get him back nothing turns out well. Until I begin to see sick even at work because of the situations and I started regretting everything and and find it so hard to forgive myself cause I feel like I led him down. So doing, I didn't even know that it was also affecting me in my working place until I was giving a suspension letter. And that was when a friend who knew Jai Mata Sunlight darted me to her. And with her ultimate powers, she was able to bring him back in so much love and bring all my expectations come through by casting a lovespell for me. We're back to love again and it's one of the beautiful moments of my life. We both apologise to each other and promise to work together in the industry where I do make-up for artiste and models and right now, we've been living so much in love and happiness. That's reminds me of when we first met. I am so happy and glorious to you mother of all nations and I say thank you. If you yourself in this kind of situations pls don't just sit back and watch sorrow to take over. She is really powerful and truthful and trustworthy. Her spell worked for me and can also work for you but your seriousness is what that will make it to work more. Via SUNLIGHTMATA@GMAIL.COM for her lovespell and I tell you, you will come out victorious. Thanks to you mother I am really indeed greatful. Yours @Manushi

  • Tommorethan5letters Says:

    Is there a way to block certain channels from appearing in your reccomended videos and possibly search results on youtube? There are a lot of click baiting channels that have no integrity. I would rather not ever see anything from their channels again. I wouldnt ban them so nobody else could watch I just dont want to see them. Im sure there isnt a way because even click bait brings in revenue for youtube. Integrity is way overrated.

  • Crimson Says:

    Is there a way to streamline this? I just realized that I want to block hundreds of people who are showing their true colors on Youtube today so that I don't mistakenly interact with them in the future, but it's too many hoops to jump through.

  • Me Rob Says:

    This is not always the case on how to block on You Tube. And it is stupid that my name must be more than 5 characters.

  • Paula Says:

    This doesnt tell us how to block trolls whose comments you don't want to see. Blocking them from sending you email, or posting on your channel does NOT effect the comments sections of any video! This page did NOT tell me what i wanted to know

  • Still annoyed Says:

    I'd like a better block on youtube - like not seeing ANY of the blocked person's comments ever again. Professional trolls are more than annoying, and they serve no purpose for the good...

  • Jason Says:

    what happens when someone is subscribed to you, but their profile page is inaccessible because it is private and not public? there isn't even a way to see who is subscribed to you... this is a bit more than creepy.

  • Carlos Says:

    This does NOT work at all. They can still reply to my threads on other videos. Clearly they don't know what "Blocking" means.

  • Quinn Says:

    I did this. It only blocks the person from commenting on your videos, but it doesn't stop them from replying to your comments on another video.

  • Benny Says:

    Doesn't work at all. They can still comment on your threads.

  • Nathan Smith Says:

    But how do you ban someone on mobile? I got to their profile and I press on about, but there is no flag.

  • Goldxoxoxoxo Says:

    Thx for the help because Katie Maples is is endangered and Pewdiepie to it's because of Darla something

  • Redcyan1 Says:

    Also doesn't work on mobile pages. They can still view, comment on and mark down your videos- just the comments don't stay, but you still get notified of their comment and can read at least some of it in the preview- which can still be upsetting. I defended, nicely, someone being bullied, they bullied me calling me ugly and an attention seeker, if he knew what I was going trough health wise and I was bornwith a bone disease no ne even cared about it even recognised, I have titanium ribs- I don't get any treatment for and have to argue for my 10 operations and pain relief- yet I ask no one for help- that't not attention seeking! I don't even get disability because they won't give my condition a name and I have leukaemia too. I was asked to make the video on land crab care and inboxed my new one too, it was just educational is all. He called me ugly- it's not my fault we NHS won't remove the tumours in my nose and it's
    Massive it hurts me every day without being reminded of it and how much I'm already hurting! I wouldn't even get married because I don't want to look at ugly photos or be accused of trying to dress up an ugly face. It was really cruel especially as he commented all the videos of one of my pets which died a few days later. Id had him years and it all left me near suicide again, I've already battled my ex who tried to save me and sometimes with my health and bullying I wonder why I fought those 7 hours to live to have nothing but shit. I even live with an alcy that doesn't care. I am always going through so much stress in a daily basis, I live in a noise nuisance area I lost my business and my job through my ill health, but the bullying didn't stop and still goes in months later- I still get the comments in the previews I just don't want to see t- block should mean block, it's unfair that I have to get my laptop out every time I want to block someone to make this even not even work properly anyway! Arseholes YouTube!

  • Peter Skooda Says:

    No such options on iPad. I don't see them anywhere.

  • Redcyan1 Says:

    There's is no flag, no block option on iPhone app, you can go to their google plus page and block that, but that still doesn't block them in YouTube's app and that's what we asked for!

  • hhhhh Says:

    this doesnt block them , they can still see your videos and mark down your content , you obviously dont know what block should mean

  • Karina Says:

    Will the person be notified that you blocked him/her on YouTube?
