    5 minutes in and i'd just like to say that public libraries DO decide not to include books in their collection simply because they don't agree with the content. ESPECIALLY in small towns where the librarian(s) order the books themselves without much demand from the community. public libraries do act as moral thermometers.

    I am trying to cite the percentage claim of the amount of YouTube views that are in Restricted mode. I totally agree and want to be able to use that in debates.. anyone got eyes on that?

    Burnie had a pretty good observation about censoring porn on an RTPodcast. He essentially said that some people define "pornographic content" as "objectionable to me" so when you restrict "porn" you can throw "objectionable content" under that umbrella and so restrict it. It seems like that's what YouTube is doing with with their safe mode.

    In regards to the youtube events and those attacking youtube like the LA article you read. I hate how people use topics such as this to jump on a moral superior bandwagon without even digesting the situation. Its the same mindset, most prevalent in younger people it seems, as jumping to an extreme view in political/social discussions. For instance , I was talking about the generational gap in values when it comes to going green in the energy business and I used the statement "old people do not care" (clarifying later in the same sentence "old people" in reference to those who are old and in the coal and oil industry or of conservative value) and was immediately called ageist, and that "not all old people think like that" no , I didn't say they were; if they had bothered to read and digest the rest of my sentence. but no I was branded prejudice against all old people. I just don't understand this type of mindset. I understand the feeling of being morally superior in topics such as race, gender and sexual equality ,but it seems people are so addicted to that feeling that they make up arguments or twist a conversation to win just to feel it.

    Blue Apron seems really cool, but I don't understand how, as a 20 year old college student, I am able to more efficiently purchase food from a grocery store than these 30-something year old adults. Like you should be trying to learn how to efficiently utilize food, its necessary for your survival and is a limited resource here on Earth.

    I'm most worried by YT demonetizing anti-SJW vids. And I'm in the private companies can do what they will-camp, but then the hypocrisy to me is: hindering anti-SWJ youtubers is a-okey, but a bakery refusing to bake a gay wedding cake is a hate crime.

    During WW2, my grandfather was given the choice to be a paratrooper. He passed it up because part of the training was jumping out of a tower (not unlike what Law was doing). Instead he elected to drop into combat in a wooden box with wings slapped onto it. 


    So, by the transitive property, Lawrence is braver than my WW2 veteran grandfather.

    I am so grateful for you guys. I just want to thank you for all your hard work. The times your videos have brightened my day are endless. There's few things in this world that take my mind off of my ever gnawing addictions and depressive thinking but I can say with absolute certainty that you five, pe/\k, and the rest of the squad, give me the bit of an emotional boost each day I need to refrain from tearing out the throats of co-workers and family. For this, I thank you.

      Well Kinda Funny isn't an RT company, it's just part of the Let's Play family, so they would technically be allowed to discuss it. I believe it's more of a "let's not get involved in a situation that has nothing to do with us and would get us hate for no reason besides having an opinion on it." kind of thing.

    I think it's important to note that almost everything on YouTube is blocked on this OPTIONAL mode.


    They haven't targeted gay people, note that there are also videos regarding LGBT issues that weren't affected.

      Yeah it's definitely pretty indescriminate in terms of what is blocked.  I've personally experimented with it just to see what makes it through and several politically based channels I watch (a couple of which actually censor any vulgar language) were completely gone in restricted mode.

    In the UK our media has swayed to the Right, not necessarily for any super sinister reasons, it's just the headlines are easier to write and the stories can be more salacious and less reflective. No-one's wetting their shorts over the rights of women pensioners (see WASPI women), the creeping privatisation of healthcare (see PFIs and Comprehensive Sickness Insurance), and disability benefits annually getting gutted (ESA). They're not that sexy. I say this as a preamble to mentioning that the UK Gov't and Home Office's rounding up extremist advertising is not being clearly explained in the news - especially to people exposed only to the headlines on news stands and the news screens at train stations. 

    Years of the same outlets matching the word "extremist" to a very well curated set of photos means the way most people are reading these (frustratingly) doesn't include the far right nationalists.

      Nah. Mainstream media is mainly the left in the UK dude. Take a look outside.

      I suppose that might depend on your experience of that media and your personal political leanings, but the numbers seem to disagree. Take the papers: top three sellers are Telegraph (centre-right), the Sun (right), and the Mail (the original Breitbart).

      I'm trying my best to avoid confirmation bias, but even the Beeb are getting into bad habits: when fined for election finance fraud the headline was that the Conservatives had made mistakes (BBC News 24); meanwhile they breach impartiality and accuracy rules when reporting on Labour's leader (cf. BBC Trust) and figure among some damning statistics produced by the London School of Economics; and they're still reporting on and hosting UKIP even though they don't even have any MPs.

      One thing that may be colouring my bias is that the extreme right have a voice in organs large enough to be considered legitimate. I'd like to think the more dilute voices on the left act as an equal balance to this, but I don't believe in homeopathy.

    Do any Youtubers ever think that their content isn't good anymore and that's why they're losing views or subscribers? Not saying that there aren't issues with Youtube's system from what we've seen, but I don't think I've heard people blame their own content (or themselves) over a problem outside their control. This isn't calling out anyone.
