It's a bizarre pattern with him. The curious thing is that nearly every time he's done this, it's been right after having an exchange with me (a pleasant exchange). It might be just a coincidence, but I can't help but wonder, what is it about me that makes him so skittish?
Does he think I'm a CIA operative trying to investigate him? I know he tends to be paranoid, but this is ridiculous.
The guy is really erratic and unstable. You never know what he's going to do next. There seems to be no logic at all to his behavior. He's probably governed by extreme mood swings and/or psychiatric problems that we're not aware of. You really can't establish a rapport with a volatile person like this. It's a shame, because I really like the content he produces.
This guy Pacific Ocean Asia does the same thing. He takes down his videos for no reason, then a couple of months later he starts posting new videos again. I think both him and Steve Hoca need professional help!
I know Pacific. I've watched a couple of his videos, but I never knew he suffered from the same affliction as Steve Hoca.
By any chance, has Pacific ever been in the military? It seems to me that many vets on YouTube suffer from mental instability (Steve Hoca served 4 years in the army).

No, Pacific never was in the military. However, he was adopted and was verbally abused by his adopted mother. He says he has emotional scars from his up bringing.
I knew there had to be some kind of abuse in his life somewhere. Incidentally, Steve Hoca also grew up with an abusive parent (biological father). I guess the combination of this & fighting in the first Gulf War really did a number on him. He seems unable to form any kind of relationship with anyone. I'm no psychiatrist, but he might have developed a fear of human closeness.
