YouTube to have stricter harassment policy targeting comedy commentator channels

YouTube has updated its harassment policy saying it will take a ’stronger stance’ against threats and personal attacks on the platform. The video-sharing platform has said it will now prohibit not only explicit threats but also ’veiled’ or ’implied’ ones as well.

If a person refers to a male who claims to be a "transgender woman" as a male, that's hate speech and they'll be lifetime banned for it. If others call that person a homophobe and call for their doxxing and violence upon them, that's going to be "A reasonable response to homophobia". This is the direction things are going.

Breaking News: YouTube makes their T&Cs even more vague so they can ban more people.

As a grown ass adult capable of thinking for himself l would rather exercise self control and consume information as I see fit rather than have have some corporation, political interest group, or wrong-think gestopo decide for me as if I were a child... and that is why I after several years of daily use I canceled my YouTube Premium subscription and am strongly considering a total break (account deletion) from Google and perhaps even Silicon Valley Big Tech in general, I find it a little harder with each passing day to look at myself in the mirror and claim that I support free speech and an open internet while still continuing to support these corporations by using their spyware social engineering "services" (who do these services really serve) more out of convenience and addiction than any actual necessity. 😠 End rant, feel better now.

YouTube used to stand for free speech. Our art least minimal censorship. Now censor what certain people don't like.

Isn’t the policy in itself a veiled threat on its own? I should look for a safe space to hide. I’m offended by the implication their policy is trying to portray.

I get into political discussions on YT all the time. It's very rare that it gets heated.

So no more late night hosts roasting Youtubers on Youtube? This seems to just be Youtube trying to justify itself for censoring it's plateform's vast amount of creators. While giving CNN a free pass
