And for the rest of your life, your ECO will be wishy washy in what it wants to censor or not censor. So wishy washy in fact, that they uncensor the censored individual within a few hours of it being brought to their attention.

But yeah, let's keep getting hysterical over what fucking YouTube decides to do with their website. Let's keep acting like they owe us something, and that content creators own that platform and are thus entitled to be on it. This isn't a free speech issue- this is an issue of YouTube being run by a bunch of fucking clown faggots, and people who have grown fat and rich making videos from home crying victim because YouTube doesn't want to support their shit.

How many warnings have content creators had by this point that YT was shady as fuck? Dozens of incidents where it was clear that censorship was creeping onto the platform? The shadow unsubs, the random strikes, the adpocalypse- all of these things, and people are fucking surprised when YT does something unethical?

You have some people that watch a particular channel. Pretty passive. So, you cancel that channel to identify those that feel strongly enough to complain about that channel being dropped. At the same time, you are conditioning the users so they get accustomed to the creep of censorship.

The funny thing is, the FCC used to have censors who would monitor the shows for indecency and fine the stations. Now we have Corporations who are self regulating. The only authentic content available is through independent creators and YT is the largest outlet.

YT should hire me, because I can identify who would feel strongly about any particular channel being taken down right now. You see, channels have "subscribers"- you see where I'm going with this?

This hysteria is getting ridiculous. This is not about "freedom of speech", it's about a PRIVATELY OWNED BUSINESS (YT) shooting itself in the foot and making itself look terrible to anyone who is paying attention. And anyone who has been paying attention should've seen this coming YEARS AGO and planned accordingly. Maybe during the adpocalypse, a content creator might realize "Holy shit, I'm putting a tremendous amount of trust in this website run by people I've never met, and they probably despise me for my political views. Perhaps I should start moving my work elsewhere?"

But no- they stick around, they keep their eggs in that basket, and then when YT does something douchey (SHOCK!) it's time to cash in on that victimhood by soliciting donations and drumming up hysteria about "muh free speech".
