YT Censorship


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone;

 

I'm relatively new, so not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I know if I get it wrong the moderator will correct me/move it!

 

Wondering if this has happened to anyone else recently? I am pretty used to my comments online being removed by moderators of news sites - and believe me, I would rate my comments as very tame compared to most. I am a female psychologist, over 50, so you get part of the picture. Anyway, something strange happened  when I was replying to  a few others on YT and my comments included the words "Zionism" and "ADL" and were NOT proceeded by "the greatest ever".  The most recent was a discussion about how the late actress Audrey Hepburn famously repudiated any attempts by "others" to use her family's experience in the Holocaust to transform herself into a victim for their purposes. As I was typing this message the screen went black and I was literally booted off the site. This has happened to me on 2 other occasions very recently under similar circumstances. 

 

Has anyone else experienced this or am I being paranoid and/or likely just accidentally hit a secret exit key that I couldn't have hit in a million years if I tried?

@Kelli I haven't encountered this phenomenon, but all my YT comments go into a black hole - and I mean all of them! I can write and post them freely but they never show up. The net result is I don't bother commenting on YT videos these days. Judging from what you've described, maybe they now have a mechanism to tackle wrong-think at its conception (that is, before the comment is even posted).

 

Maybe a tech-savvy member will have some insight into the murky world of YT censorship

Luke Kelly fan? or a Dubs fan? Either way it's a 👍 from me!

The youtube comments section works on algorithms which remove any comments which contradict mainstream everything, the powers that be, or the cultural zeitgeist. 

 

Many youtube channels also buy likes, views and subs. Youtube bears about as much resemblance to objective reality as fire does to ice. 

 

Nobody with any intellectual integrity gives one single fuck about any consensus on youtube since it is artificially manufactured.
