Would you change your mind if it turned out this was all some sort of mistake and the strikes were quickly removed?

That's some sloppy fucking censorship right there.

So, back to normal... except now he'll be walking on eggshells. JewTube won anyway.

He already was. I'm almost certain the JQ has been on the tip of his tongue recently (I specifically remember him pausing and saying "...certain people"). Not going to happen now.

Zero sympathy from me. If you get into bed with dogs (youtube), expect to wake up with fleas.

This is an attempt to intimidate him into self-censorship so they can claim it was all just a mistake but still get him to tone things down or risk real strikes. It's a trick and they know what they are doing is wrong but they just want to appear like they are innocent to the lefties who will eat that shit up.

Zero sympathy. Lay with dogs, wake with fleas. Should be more careful about who you choose to trust to make your fucking living from.

Our ancestors are spinning in their graves right now. It's shocking how much faith content creators have to put into YT staff, people whom they've never met and likely are ideologically opposed to you, and they have the option to yank your work down at any moment without warning and without a good reason.

Yeah, that's a sound business decision to work under those conditions. Fucking ridiculous.

No, I wouldn't change my mind. Molyneux has been intimidated. It's not going to stop. They will soon kick him off YouTube, just as they kicked off Alex Jones, and for the same political reasons.

If you were working any other job in which your boss frequently intimidates and threatens your livelihood because of your political opinions/affiliations, how long would you stick around there? I'd reckon "just long enough to obtain new employment, and then I'm outta there."

What does it say about people like Stef and Jones that they would continue to work for and make money for YT after all these years of intimidation and threats? That pisses me off- these youtubers want to pretend like they're principled and they're above YouTube. But they continue to fucking work for YouTube and take money from them (as well as give some to them).

This is hardly any different from a battered wife. The husband (Youtube/google) is a vicious abuser who has made the wife (youtubers) fully dependent on him, and uses threats of violence and emotional abuse to keep the wife in line. And she just won't fucking leave him, no matter what he does. He might punch a friend of the wife's in the mouth (like banning Alex Jones), but the wife (Stef in this case) will make a little fuss about it, but will take no action against the husband. They'll continue to be a good little battered wife and keep bringing in revenue for their abuser.

It's in-house harassment. You know, the shit YT supposedly abhors.
