No surprise there! You Tube is getting out of hand with some of the crap there. Plus with their new TV addition? I'm sure they're going to need them.

Youtube, for me, is only good for a tune. The only other time i see anything from there is from links from here. Commenting there is not my thing.

Oh, you remember my comments from over two years ago? I'm flattered. More often than not, I've not found the "censorship" I've witnessed online to be fair or warranted.

Okay. I don't recall much of an uproar here about censorship, during that time. Later on, most definitely.

In response to “Please explain.

So back on Sodahead there was a group of friends who called themselves PHAET. I was never part of it, but they were generally pretty cool people. For some reason during the last days of Sodahead after moderator support had all but ended, a bunch of posts popped about how all these people somehow were all one account, even though that would've meant that this one person would have had to maintain separate personas over several years, sometimes on multiple websites. When Sodahead shut down, a bunch of PHAET migrated here, but so did their enemies, who I am still not convinced was more than one person. The anti-PHAET faction continued their attacks, in addition to being incredibly unpleasant people. You could not have a conversation with any of the anti-PHAETers without it turning into a bad faith argument about how liberals all believe that humans came from asteroids (and yes, they did take right wing stances, but that wasn't the problem, the problem was that they weren't interested in a discussion, they were interested in causing drama.) I wasn't the direct target of this but I heard that they were also harassing PHAET members directly. This lead most of them to leave the site. After the Amirite staff realized that they had a community with double digit members again all of the anti PHAET accounts were deactivated, but not before a bunch of people were driven off, which on a site like this is really damaging. If it wasn't for all of that amirite would probably be a lot more active and fun right now.

It will be a worthy effort if they concentrate their efforts on keeping inappropriate videos off of YouTube Kids, predatory comments on YouTube Kids videos, and their autosuggest feature:


I suspect they will instead double down on censoring that which doesn't comport with Goolag's SJW mentality.

Censorship is everywhere, no matter the platform, it creeps in and asserts itself seemingly with a mind of its own. I **** detest censorship and have been subjected to it many a time.

DW and I used to be on a site where the bloke that ran it was the most even handed web site mod I have ever met. He is dead now, which is a loss to the world, and, his site died with him. Others tried to be him, and couldn't.

It is always very tricky to appear to be even handed when humans are involved.
