Interesting that they're stopping showing videos of people being "murdered, seriously injured or engaged in graphic sexual act without their consent"

Wonder why this is being enforced all of a sudden, maybe somebody doesn't want all those "peaceful" protesters being caught out on camera?

Will any of this be enforced equally? Think we all know the answer to this

I still wonder why I am supposed to care about Etika, I mean beside being like the diversity streamer or some shit.
Both drama channels are cancel and the fact that YT let them exist shows how hypocritical the company is.
They will pick on smaller channels because drama bad, yet they let Keem star run a show called Drama Alert. meh

Etika was just a sad case and it also showed how speds being retarded online can contribute to someone's declining mental health. The Skyrim Grandma is going through something similar right now with online niggers screeching and chimping at her:


No we shouldn't let people get to us online and if the harassment is too much its important to step back, but there's a reason why speds chimping out gets so much attention.

It is destructive and corrosive. I agree. The problem is that for some magical reason the big platforms are never doing anything when genuine harm is being done to their users but they act all macho when a nothing burger happens. I don't mind rules much, but selective enforcement is annoying.

I didn't wanted to shit on the streamer guy, but I honestly doubt one, it is ethical to put up a dead person's name and face to gain internet points and two I seriously doubt the guy would have been mildly okay with his name being used to make online content creation even more controlled. I honestly feel writting a list about how nothing I have ever enjoyed has anything to do with my death if the case a satellite or something falls on me.

Also hate mobs are retarded. At least they should try going after like people who actually hurt others or something.

Yeah. Etika has become a posterboy for online harassment and like anything else is being used as a prop. However the sad truth is that the harassment was only ever part of the story. Dude was bipolar and I assume had other things going on in his life, it's sad that he killed himself but it's also inevitable with some of these mental diseases. Eskimos pushed mentally ill families off icebergs for a reason.

Youtube and the rest of the Valley are, imo, in a bad position. As I see it their platforms are too big which means its too easy for them to miss things. Hence they have rampant issues with graphic porn videos, murder livestreams, people selling other people as slaves, and on top of it they span the globe which makes a mess out of legal jurisdictions. They utterly fail to police the video portion of their businesses and that's not even without going into the propaganda that they put into the Anglosphere.

On top of that they have to deal with genuinely hateful people and harassment en masse. Remembering 4chan's crushing response towards Abe from Something Awful comes to mind. While that was enormously funny and deserved its also something that should not have happened under a well managed system, beginning with Abe going after a minor.

IMO they selectively enforce because their websites have simply become too big for them to control. They decided to moderate to favor lefties instead of righties but I'm not sure that they could fully enforce the rules on their users even if they wanted to. There's too many, it's too big, there's too much noise.

But they don't want to look weak so instead they try to come out with this placating bullshit where they'll target some of the big names to look like they're "doing something." Maybe it's better than admitting that they're paralyzed with doubt and that they don't know how to handle their own creation.

Breaking up these companies wouldn't just be good economically; it would be good for us and them. Limiting scope and power is better than having these unwieldy Leviathans that they can't actually control and that they're frantically hotfixing constantly.

So the most boring YouTube drama between Keemstar and H3H3 (which I still have no idea what is it about, it's so boring) is being used to further censor the website. Great.
It's almost as YT asked these two guys to start this WWE fake feud (both of them are close to YT) so they can roll out this nonsense.


It can only get worse.
Fake beefs are the core activity of some big Youtubers, plus all those smaller commentary channels picking up the crumbs. I see as one of those rules they will invoke when it suits them, probably to take out rules skirting channels.

YouTube can do as it pleases, but bullies who police YouTube, like to feel their punches are within the rules, in support of the rules, that they're righteous.

Having real discussion depends on the partners at least being in similar status and ability. YouTubers have zero leverage over the site, so YT does whatever it wants. Considering they depend on the algorithm and the userbase of YT they will never leave, so YT has all the cards. It's power at work, basically.

With all the "adpocalypses" happening, you would think Youtubers would at least try to meet up and talk up a solution, but nope they just take it up to the ass because they know there is nothing they could do. Ironically this only increases YT's power because bitching and moaning works better than doing nothing and just accepting your fate. The fact that they just keep kicking each other under the bus, for views or ego and making all the bad behavior even more accepted doesn't help either.

If an option gets put on the table, it rarely ever gets off from it.

I wouldn't use the words "Suzy Lu" and "creator" in the same sentence, personally. Not sure what I'd use to describe Suzy Lu, but "creator" seems like a reach.

Beyond that, it seems like YouTube is going way beyond US or even EU law here, doesn't it? I'd argue once somebody passes a certain number of subscribers they're a public figure as both a practical and a legal matter.

I wonder if we'll see a growth of channels (at least of a certain type) on Instagram. Viz:


To my mind something like this would have been on YouTube as recently as last year. She's basically white woman calling out other white women "influencers," like the Stauffers and the Gardners.

We certainly see a growth of channels on Bitchute

Which slowly but surely IS happening

The thing I'm keeping my eye on is if/when they reach the "improved infrastructure" goal. THAT would be the ultimate test to see if uploading/processing and overall video quality will improve drastically from what it already is. From what I've experienced on the site so far, depending on the time of day you upload, sometimes even a 10MB video that's like a minute or two long can be stuck in processing limbo.

Good. Drama YouTubers are vermin.

Next up better be those channels run by and starting grown ass adults that make clickbait targeted at kids like Morgz.
