If things keep going the way they are, I give it maybe a couple years before folks start to realize the full extent of ignoring this.

Many still think google is just a search engine.. Alphabet Inc has done a great job kind of obscuring their assets.

Of course, they pretty much control the entire online revenue market, alongside facebook. Youd think with the issues ATS is having, more would have an inkling of why this might be an issue..

Doesnt matter if someone doesnt use them personally.

Censorship on platforms like reddit, twitter, etc. isnt nearly as serious as when google starts swinging their weight around with adsense, youtube, etc.

Why do people use google in the first place???
OMG, they are banning people LOL
Wake the hell up and quit using it, screw youtube, I get my content from other sources.
Lets let google and youtube just die already!!


I really do agree. I can't stand the bitching and moaning. Google is not the internet and neither does it own it FFS. Seriously WGAF about google. Like any other irritant, just ignore it, sooner or later it'll go away.


lol you really think google and youtube is just gonna go away.... thanks for the laugh

Google was a great idea until they figured out they could not only get rich off people's ignorance, but then when they figured out they could control elections and viewpoints they went full speed ahead. F 'em.


Any power Google has over you is power you give them of your own free will.


Really??? I had no idea I could do that?

Come on dude, I even said "F 'em".

Go start another platform.
Exactly how do you create another platform and go up against the endless money lawyers the current platforms would come after you with.

but the way we communicate with eachother.


"but the way some of us communicate with eachother". I still call/text to communicate. I will admit I am a dying breed.




TextTreating these entities as 'private companies entitled to do what they want within the law' is harmful to society as a whole.


Fossil fuels, having no access to health care, spending more on bombs than teachers, tax cuts for the rich, high capacity mags, the war on drugs, alcohol, sugar, tobacco.

The list of things 'harmful to society as a whole' is long my friend. Although the last three I would group under 'Lack of Understanding the Concept of Moderation' category.

We would be a long way to fixing these injustices to 'society as a whole' if it wasn't for conservatives always holding us back. As they have throughout history, they act as a brake on progress.

Society, as a whole, can only tolerate this for so long.

Correct. If things keep going the way they are, that will be the full extent that people realize. Maybe a couple years, at most.

Goes far beyond "Big Tech," or a single election, but there ya go.

Sounds like maybe you should have some idea of what you're talking about, since you freely admit that you don't. What the spread is actually hate speech. While it's protected by the 1st ammendment, it's not required for anyone to endorse it or share it. YouTube can set their own policies and enforce them. Their freedom of speech isn't being infringed upon. Richard Spencer isn't in jail is he?

Section 230 people, it's going to hammer big tech into oblivion.

Twitch is a legit private company, they can do whatever, that's just the reality.

However, to clear up a few things inregards to Twitter and FB...

Three things to understand,

1. Private ownership, ie, Twitch, which has rules for use in its platform, it is billed as a Private service, thus at mercy to their contractual obligatiobs.

2. Public Forum, with which a physical or private location/service is employed and billed as such, in doing so, it isn't legally responsible for content posted by users because it can then be protected by Section 230.

3. Publisher, CHOOSES and PICKS what goes on their sites, this is because if they just post anything, aomething that could be disinfo or copyright, they can be held liable and thus legally challenged and cannot use section 230 protections.

Ideas that these big tech companies disagree with, not for the welfare of public discourse and therein lies the issues at hand.

You can't be a Publisher AND Public forum at the same time, which is what big tech is doing by using their own criterias and metrics.

I don't think anyone is questioning any utility or functionality. It's the fact that google has gone full a$$hole.

Do you have an android phone? Have you checked the services recently? You'll find a handy new COVID-19 facility on there now built into the operating system. That's there because google really really cares about your welfare.....

know, the first arguments will be 'private company...blah blah bull# don't have to give platforms to blah blah' but, that argument is just sticking your head in the sand and ignoring the very real reality


Ignoring the reality that it's a private company? I mean that's it. Private. It's a private platform. If you don't like it, move somewhere else or start your own one. For years we've been told by conservatives, free-market capitalists and the like that this is the beauty of the market, of a true free society. We were told this on the arguments for businesses refusing services to gays for example. If this is what you proclaim to be, if this is your ideology, stick to it, keep consistent.
Typical behavior of the left, sucker them in till they gain your trust, then pull the rug out from under them and leave them hanging. If YouTube didn’t have a monopoly on the industry and wasn’t having its strings pulled by outside political forces it wouldn’t be such a big deal but they are and it is.

Why not? How else could we gain enjoyment through mocking the idiocy of these people if they couldn't say their dumb #? Whatever happened to laughing at idiots? Since when did so many people become so utterly stupid they lack the common sense to ignore the utterly dumb # people say? Since when did the general population become a bunch of #ing children that need a rating system and 'parental' #ing guidance....?

Since as long as children have been around, shall we just let them view hardcore porn, buy firearms or drugs there is a reason we call them children and the rest of us adults. Some things need to be restricted for certain age groups.

hell even video games have age ratings (whether they are adhered to by the parents or not) but the seller or producer of age restricted (porn,movies,games) items has a duty to not intentionally sell to a minor

Would you let your kids join brazzers or smoke cigars, I got no problems with adults doing what ever the hell gets them off, providing they are not hurting another human.

They not only didn't ask me, they bypassed my $1000 phones security firewall completely and installed covid spyware, then went and killed all privacy apps off off playstore.
We need to sue the ukw out of them.
I'm done with it.
