This is interesting in that Youtube need content creators. I wonder if a new alternative can rise up or we will be left with nothing but cute cats and minecraft kid videos.

I know, I know.. private companies can do what they want as long as they also bake me a fabulous cake... blah blah blah.

Content creators who helped build the YouTube platform are being stabbed in the back.

Social media is now starting to push the politically correct mantra to official levels.

Twitter has already been moving quickly in this direction as was witnessed when it banned Milo Yiannopoulos for his anti Ghostbuster review.

Now a new “advertiser friendly” policy is being introduced by YouTube that will effectively punish users who express politically incorrect opinions or dare to offend viewers.

The punishment will be doled out in the form of de-monetizing content.

What's the problem, sounds like a market opportunity for FuckYoutube.



And Milo Yiannopoulos wasn't banned from Twitter for his anti Ghostbuster review.

Actually is is 100% corporately correct. The policy is in place to make sure content is 'advertiser friendly', so blame your money gods, not dem libz.

Hilariously, they're not deleting anything (per Jeremy's quote)

They're cutting what they pay you if you're not advertiser friendly.

Yeah, from everything I have gathered, this is less about YouTube per se and more about the advertising networks.

Or basically if the advertiser thinks their brand is being damaged.

Are you questioning capitalism's ability to serve the market?

It should come as no surprise to anyone that one of your infowars based posts isn't entirely factual.

Wow, capitalist conservatives and libertarians sure are quick to turn on the free market when it's used against them.

Enjoy your ride on the whaaaaaaaambulance.

Start your own free video streaming site, fill it with anti-SJW propaganda. Call it "The War on Information" or something.

All jokes aside, this really isn't -actually- about racists. YouTube's specific policies regarding this pretty much make it possible for your video to be demonetized over anything. Any real "enforcement" of it is pretty bad for content creators in general.

How about they also required 'advertisers' label with "truthful" slogans, such as "Coca-Cola"-'Original Formula' with High Fructose Corn Syrup being denoted as: "CACA-Cola"? yuk

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

The monetary system is only interested in regimenting and homogenizing your thoughts and actions. You are not allowed to be interesting or different. Please investigate a resource based economy.
