Bitchute - Community Guidelines - update 1st June 2021


Recommended Posts

Here we go... 

 

Community Guidelines

Content Sensitivity

To aid with user understanding on the sort of content they should expect to see when viewing Normal sensitivity content, we have added the following reference to the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) '12' rating under the 'Normal' sub-section:

When viewing, Normal content should be considered equivalent to the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) ‘12’ rating.

Additionally, the other links to British Board of Film Classification ratings have been updated to align with changes in the BBFC website structure.

Incitement to Hatred

Click here to learn more about Incitement to Hatred.

During consultation with the UK Office of Communications (Ofcom) it was determined that the wording of the Incitement to Hatred guideline was too narrow, did not fully cover the scope of the regulations, and could lead to users not raising reports on in-scope content. To address these issues the guideline has been updated as follows:

Previous Wording

 

As defined in the UK Audio-visual Media Services Regulations 2020, this applies to hatred against a group of persons or a member of a group of persons based on any of the grounds referred to in Article 21 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union.

 

There should be a reasonable probability that the content would succeed in inciting actual action against the target, recognizing that such causation should be rather direct.

New Wording

 

As defined in Section 368E Subsection (1) of the UK Communications Act 2003, this applies to any material likely to incite hatred against a group of persons or a member of a group of persons based on any of the grounds referred to in Article 21 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union.

Terrorism & Violent Extremism

This section has been reworded to improve clarity on the sources of terrorist designation and how we they are handled on the platform. The changes are as follows:

Previous Wording

 

Defined as any act of violence or intimidation carried out with the intention of furthering a religious, political or any other ideological objective.

 

BitChute maintains and publishes a Proscribed Terrorist & Violent Extremist List that is utilised when identifying terrorist and violent extremist material. As this list will evolve over time, we suggest that all users regularly check it to ensure they are not breaching the guidelines.

New Wording

 

Defined as any act of violence or intimidation carried out with the intention of furthering a religious, political or any other ideological objective.

 

Entities that have been designated under counterterrorism legislation will be blocked within the jurisdiction of the relevant nation state or international organisation. In addition, those designated by the United Kingdom of Great Britain, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United States of America, the United Nations, the European Union or any member state of the European Union will be prohibited on the platform.

 

BitChute maintains and publishes a Prohibited Entities List that contains entities that BitChute has independently identified and explicitly prohibited on the platform under this guideline. As this list will evolve over time, we suggest that all users regularly check it to ensure they are not breaching the guidelines.

Incitement to Violence

During consultation with the UK Office of Communications (Ofcom) it was determined that the wording of the Incitement to Violence guideline was too narrow, did not fully cover the scope of the regulations, and could lead to users not raising reports on in-scope content. To address these issues the guideline has been updated as follows:

Previous Wording

Defined as credible threats of violence or incitement to violence where there is a reasonable probability that the content would succeed in actual action against the target, recognizing that such causation should be rather direct.

New Wording

Defined as containing threats of violence or likely to incite violence.

Disclaimer

This is a new addition to the Community Guidelines, the wording is as follows:

Any action taken by BitChute or its staff whilst enforcing these Community Guidelines is at our sole discretion and is not a legal opinion. Any reference to external definitions, legislation, or other material is for reference purposes only. We reserve the right to remove content for reasons not currently defined within these Community Guidelines.

Pretty much stops competitiveness with silicon valley not only is bitshoot still a bad platform to navigate but one of the main reasons people flocked there was for free speech and cool content lol

 

If you don't like our rules go elsewhere they said. 

 

 "Uh really we like it here"?

 

Go elsewhere. 

Continues to ban and a censor. 

Go elsewhere 

 

"Ok. You know what let's make our own platform, you know what let's make content over there". 

 

Look at these far right extremist conspiracy theorists! We need to ban these sites. We need to at least 'regulate' them from anti Semites, racists conspiracy theorists!!!!

 

I cannot work out if they are childish bullies. Or bullies that have such a low opinion of people that treat them like they are children, or they don't care how absurd they behave and that people know that they behave absurd because they hate your average Joe to the core.

So I was looking at Bitchute videos and clicked on one and got this ....

 

1208071004_2021-06-0319_04.53www.bitchute.com53c710515f22.jpg.b6a896c61c3ddcb71e3e039048e5f461.jpg

Used a VPN to view it .... and it was fuck all!

But it would seem that the whole of the channel is nolonger allowed to be viewed by those in the UK!

 

So I looked at my own channel and there is a new tab which shows which countries you channel is banned from??

Looks like I am not banned from any .... YET!

Bitchute - now totally banned in Denmark. 

:0( 

 

Danish citizens are reporting that Denmark’s National Police Cyber Crime Center (NC3) has blocked access to free speech video sharing platform BitChute on the grounds that it contains “dangerous information” and “misinformation” related to COVID-19.

 

The website is being blocked by some Danish internet service providers (ISPs) in response to a court order. Users of the providers Stofa and Telmore are reporting that they’re unable to access BitChute and being presented with a message noting that the platform has been blocked by NC3.

I got one of those 'Video Restricted' (incitement to hatred) messages on shit chute today. My first experience of doing so. It was a video about abortion, from a most likely pro-life stance. 

 

It's official folks: shit chute are on their knees and are now enthusiastically deep-throating ofcom whilst noisily mumbling "more, more".
