How could this effect internet philosophical anarchists, crypto-currency enthusiasts and Annunaki believers?

Someone on Twitter pointed out that it says something interesting about the Internet that the multi-billion-dollar advertising-supported companies need to use a donation-based, volunteer-edited service to provide reliable information.

In principle, this is really a great step forward. Even if it ends up being overdone, a bit, it won't matter.

Scientists who present novel and as-yet-untested conjectures or hypotheses, for instance, often like to summarize the existing view or paradigm before explaining why they think elements of it are wrong and why they think their new approach is correct. Fred Hoyle did that throughout his career, for instance; Narlikar, Hoyle's collaborator, is known for it; in recent years, among those who have tried to appeal to the wider public in their books, Roger Penrose is a quintessential model of this type of integrity.

So, if I present some novel idea of mine on youtube and the youtube editors decide to add something from Wikipedia, I would welcome it -- they'd be helping me do my job.

I think there's a quite huge middle ground between "lizard people run the world" and "we can trust the multibillion company is in this for the good of public education and wouldnt abuse it any way it can get away with".

Oh we used to have an Annunaki enthusiast right here in RSP! Yep the mirror universe Occam's Razorites are posting prodigiously. It's somewhere near Nirvana for me.

Hobby time priorities:
1. Painting miniatures.
2. Playing "real" wargames. None of that memoir '44 crap.
3. Watching conspiracy videos.
4. Playing Euro's.

You are going to want to watch my upcoming Youtube video about how the John Birch society injects mind control aromatics into miniatures paints in order to force people to play strategy war games as training for the coming war against the communist Illuminati. They are even having some of their less capable drones learn logistics by sending them messages to play Euros.

They got me coming and going. Maybe Grandfather Nurgle will appreciate the sweat equity I've put into his Death Guard figures and grand me succor against the machinations of the Birchers.

Some people think that a flu shot is a slap in Nurgle's face, but really, the "inactive" flu strain they are injecting you with? It is actually just dormant, and when the the warp storms come to Terra once again, those sleeping cells will awaken and bestow great gifts on their hosts. Glorious protrusions, pustules and great weeping boils spurting Nurgle's gifts onto all those within reach. Then you will hear the call.. the sweet, discordant, song of Chaos.

YouTube will add information from Wikipedia to videos about popular conspiracy theories to provide alternative viewpoints on controversial subjects, its CEO said today. YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki said that these text boxes, which the company is calling “information cues,” would begin appearing on conspiracy-related videos within the next couple of weeks.

That means almost every Alex Jones video will have "information cues" I presume. That guy is bonkers.

I understand from some people who are "in the know" that YouTube's plan is simply another way to identity the heretics and apostates. If one reads one of the pop-up info boxes, even for a second, a special outward-facing scanner in each box will snap a photo of your iris. Then, when the government opens up their "Trump's Finest Re-Education Camps" at various shuttered Toys R'Us (c'mon, you think that timing is coincidental??? Fools!), those whose irises are stored in the scanners' memory banks will be sent to learn how to appreciate the best and greatest president for life the right honorable Donnie ("My Hands lie, my dick isn't that tiny") Teh Trump.

Debunking conspiracy theorists -- how silly!*

*--And if you don't believe that, you are obviously one of the Mole People who will be exterminated when Elvis comes out of hiding to seek his revenge. Fear the Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm reminded of my professor in college's opinion of Demosthenes, thought by many to be the greatest ancient Greek orator. That only mans that his speeches were enjoyable and fun to listen to. As that professor remarked, Demosthenes was a great speaker but a raving loon, a crackpot. Based on no real information he denounced Philip of Macedon for the latter's efforts to take over the Greek world. As my prof stated, "He happened by the weirdest stroke of fortune to be essentially correct, but he really could not know that and so remained a crackpot.

Alex Jones got his channel demonetized by youtube and now has to keep his business afloat solely through donations and supplement sales.
