Youtube's censorship

A Blog Post for GameBanana

Uhhh! well I dunno where else to rant about this, but here it is. The Youtube's censorship policies has gone way too far.

Most of you will be familiar with James Rolfe's rant series, You know what's bullshit. If you don't look it up, it's hilarious. 



However, in the past few months, something changed terribly. Ho and behold, Youtube's censorship strikes. In his most recent videos, like the ones released this year, he cannot say You know what's Bullshit in the intros. He instead have to say You know what's BS. Moreover, he had to rename all of his videos to You know what's BS!? and also changing their thumbnails to include YKWBS instead of the original titles.

Now, agree with me or not, but I find James' the person who popularized Youtube. He's been uploading since 2005, which is actually the year Youtube was created itself. He drew traffic to the site with his infamous Angry Video Game Nerd series. And now all of a sudden, the censorship strikes on him? Well shame on yourself Youtube. Just check out modern music videos. No just do it. What you see? Yep. They're almost pornographic. Twerking? clothes that doesn't matter you're wearing or not? And what about lyrics? How damn nasty can those get? Why doesn't those videos get the censorship strike, and why one of the forefathers of video game reviewing gets it?



Again I'll just say, shame on yourself Youtube. Just to gobble down some extra cash into your filthy throat you're not going to even touch those pop assholes.

Well that's youtube for you and in these conditions, It's Bullshit.

    Never heard of this guy, but I feel ya. Used to watch this cool dude that always made me laugh back in the day (as in before YT freaked out). The thing is he used swears in every sentence of his. So when shit hit the fan he tried to sensor himself, but his comedy suffered as a result and he wasn't funny anymore :(

    Scroogle, and YouTube (can't use YouPoop because of YTP) has been going downhill, and it's going downhill faster due to SJWs, and PC stuff.

    Recently, they forcibly turn on monetisation on all videos (even if the user decides to turn off monetisation for that specific video). I'm no longer getting 2-3 ads, it's f-ing 12 ads.
