/not supporting neo-Nazis, just pointing out the hypocrisy


Funny, I don't see the US government demanding that the videos be taken down, nor do I see anyone preventing these guys from hosting their stupidity by themselves.

Bullseyed: Anyone who is in favor of this content being taken down is against Net Neutrality.

GTFO.


So, you don't know what Net Neutrality is.

Neo nazis, white supremacists, angry black muslims, anarchists, Eco-terrorists, and charlatans are like hydra - if you just cut off a head, they grow back somewhere else. That level of idiotic, violent mindset needs to be dealt with on an individual social level to keep it from spreading, but trying to remove their words speaks of an ineffective brand of tyranny and may lead to support for their cause..

And youtube may take something down, but it's not like these people are too stupid to just sign up with a different username.

xynix: I'm of the "change the channel crowd" so could care less what youtube has on it.

Ditto that.

Fred Phelps has hate videos specifically targeting people like me (I don't believe in God, probably lots of other stuff). I just don't watch his videos. The end.


Hate speech laws are stupid. And in this case a way to make Nazis look like victims of fascism.

YouTube's content filter is inept. As are its DMCA notices. The site that allows hundreds of copyrighted clips to be uploaded unnoticed every hour is the same site that actually executed DMCA takedowns for Creation Science Evangelism (Kent and Eric Hovind's club) for videos the group released into the public domain.

Subby here. Or as I shall henceforward by known, suvvy (facepalm).

I'm all for freedom of speech. Say what you want in your own site. What gets sand in my shorts is the "do no evil" company helps people profit from evil, an evil that has an eye-watering track record for geitting people hurt or killed.

And spare me the "soooooo much content" argument. You're telling me that Google couldn't write a search algorithm to sift content so they only had to review a tiny fraction? Like, oh "its being uploaded from here, or to this channel, or contains these keywords or a schwastika" etc.

Thats vull...bull...dangit...

Youtube:
- is not the internet. You can host your stuff yourself if you want to post stuff that violates Youtube's TOS.
- won't throw you in jail for putting up stuff that violates the TOS.

But hey, it's just like China.

The bottom line is Youtube doesn't screen content, it realistically can't with so much being uploaded, so it relies on people to report content that is offensive and is a violation of its TOS. If it doesn't get reported, it stays up. If people want this stuff removed then they will have to monitor Youtube themselves and report it.

If its not illegal, and not exhorting illegal acts, are they "required" to take such videos down? No matter how abhorrent I find what they're saying, that doesn't necessarily mean it has to come down, legally.


I wouldn't think so.. But we're in the busy-body age now so everyone has to make noise about irrelevant people practicing antiquated and irrelevant causes. I'm of the "change the channel crowd" so could care less what youtube has on it.
