[Ars] YouTube tries to rescue its terrible commenters from themselves - Page 5

post #41 of 71
This move doesn't surprise me....youtube is so censor happy anymore that it's amazing we have any content to watch. What amazes me is how many videos they remove that involve NEGATIVE political views, lot of Benghazi clips were removed and later down the info on those clips ended up being TRUE.....but youtube removed them for the stupidest of reasons.


It's almost like truth is being censored all over anymore.....internet is going to be locked down sooner than anyone thought :/

yes its just become too big. It doesn’t work very well at all. When you consider the myriad of other websites for gaming,music,reviews,shopping most of which are direct competitors to each other its strange that there isn’t really another video website on earth that comes near or I am aware of that even exists that holds all the videos on non google cloud servers and on their own? im sure there must be one but i haven’t stumbled upon it or heard of others discussing it ever..

youtube really is a victim of its own success it simply cant keep taking gigabytes per minuet forever there has to be an even spread amongst 4 or 5 other competitors and perhaps even dedicated video websites for Funny, Sports, Music, Random etc..

also i agree on the censorship thing, they will blame it on some random comments or a death from someone being an arse but in the end its to control the output and make sure which ever government is letting them bypass tax law isn’t embarrassed by their channel ...

thats the rub, big video requires big investment which requires a big company which always ends up in the pockets of government so they can lean on each other. An Indie video channel would have to be kickstarted and pay to use in some form to survive and heavily monitored so as not to get spam and other horrific gore stuff..

I wrote a satirical letter to the editor about common sense speech control. It went something like this:

Why do we let everybody have access to media with massive capacity audiences? The Founding Fathers never could have imagined Facebook or television or even radio. The first amendment was written with newspapers in mind, and I think we need to limit access to mass media. Cyberbullying and suicides from it have become huge problems, and we need common sense speech control to stop it. Please, think of the children. If we can save just one life, then it's worth it.

I made several references to the common anti-gun arguments (because that's funny when applied to the first, not second, amendment and trolling is fun) but can't remember them all. Either way, it's making mountains out of molehills and anyone committing suicide has more problems than mean people on the Internet.

Half the time with TubeEnhancer Plus, the comments don't even load. I don't miss out on anything and only notice because there's more whitespace than normal at the bottom of the screen. I watch most videos offline anyway. As I have always said, anonymity + inability for others to punch you in the face = terrible terrible people.

Just take a page from ESRB and put a "content not rated" warning toggle over the comments. Problem solved.

There is no feasible way to prevent these kids from posting their rants, venting, looking for emotional help, or even having fun, nor is there a feasible way to stop the trolls from suggesting things such as "you should kill yourself". They already have an age requirement to post, we all know how well that works. They could add a "give us your credit card to prove your age", but there are risks in that plus ANY kid can get a debit card if they have a checking account, I had one at 14. They could want a driver's license, but that can be faked and also leads to more security issues.

I am all for censoring some comments or even shutting them off entirely. Sure it gets abused, not allowing people to post their own counter-arguments. When it all boils down to it, we don't own YouTube. It is their site to post our videos, not our site to post our videos.

if someone suicides due to cyber bully then they probably deserve it due to something they did. remember jessie slaughter. kids need to learn they cant just do something without consequences

still darwin has his ways to clean our gene pool from morons and its survival of the fittest and if you suicide then its obvious that you are not fit to live in this world

You are being sarcastic, aren't you? You are not seriously proposing victim blaming.

I don't want anybody to save me from myself, I want to burn in my own flames.
