I has YouTube account with forgotten password, but account page has few videos, that could be useful for some users (and for me, as archive copy).
Look like I should now download all uploaded videos back to my laptop...[0,1]

That being said, it seems like they expect some level of activity in the form of engagement (comments? posts?) to keep the account as wel. Ok this seems...maybe reasonable.
However will be concerning to see what China does in this regard. Might they require users to post at least two happy statuses a day, or else you aren’t being “active”? You could then have your social credit score deducted. Or maybe you have to criticize at least one other person for not being loyal enough to the party on their FB wall. This could create a kind of social network dystopia nightmare that we’ve only begun to understand in the West.
Think of the security implications there.
