You Tube’s Dilemma

A Commentary On Rules and Censorship by Mitch Santell

YouTube Channels Frustrated With New Rules.

The rules are tightening at YouTube and it is only matter of time until more and more content creators abandon the platform.


On Tuesday afternoon, YouTube formally announced its plan to have creators label any videos of theirs that may appeal to children. Starting in January 2020, if creators mark a video as directed at kids, data collection will be blocked for all viewers, resulting in lower ad revenue, and those videos will lose some of the platform’s most popular features, including comments and end screens. It’s a major change in how YouTube works, and has left some creators clueless as to whether they’re subject to the new rules.

Reached by The Verge, Google confirmed that this new system was the result of a landmark $170 million settlement YouTube reached with the Federal Trade Commission in September for allegedly violating children’s privacy. It’s the largest fine ever collected under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), which forbids collecting data from children under the age of 13 without explicit consent from their parents. In this case, the ruling means YouTube can’t employ its powerful ad-targeting system on anyone who might be under the age of 13 — a dire problem for a platform with so many young users.

San Francisco (AFP) – YouTube broadened its anti-harassment policies on Wednesday to include a ban on “implied” threats along with insults based on race, gender identity or sexual orientation.

“We will no longer allow content that maliciously insults someone based on protected attributes such as their race, gender expression, or sexual orientation,” global head of trust and safety Matt Halprin said in an online post.

“This applies to everyone, from private individuals, to YouTube creators, to public officials.”

YouTube already bans explicit threats, but now “veiled or implied” threats will be barred as well, according to Halprin.

“This includes content simulating violence toward an individual or language suggesting physical violence may occur,” Halprin said.

“No individual should be subject to harassment that suggests violence.”

The changes stem in part from YouTube’s pledge earlier this year to crack down on harassment by video creators.

The platform was berated for leaving up videos from Steven Crowder, a right-wing commentator who regularly insulted gay Vox producer Carlos Maza based on his sexual orientation and Cuban heritage.

Maza’s video montage of insults from Crowder over a period of years — including “lispy sprite” and “angry little queer” — went viral, prompting a YouTube investigation that concluded they didn’t violate its hate speech policies.

– Problematic patterns –

In the case of Crowder’s channel, a review found that individually, the flagged videos did not violate YouTube guidelines, spokesman Chris Dale explained in an online post in June.

“However, in the subsequent days, we saw the widespread harm to the YouTube community resulting from the ongoing pattern of egregious behavior, took a deeper look, and made the decision to suspend monetization,” Dale said.

New World Order Is Here, You OK?

A commentary on the collapse that is here now by Mitch Santell

(This is the first of 30 blog postings before the permanent shut down of AfterHollywood.Online on January 11, 2020).

You can't handle the truth
“You Can’t Handle The Truth!’ ~ Jack Nicolson, A Few Good Men.

It is so interesting to note the small changes in people as the world continues to flip out of control. From 2005 until 2015, things seemed to be moving along nicely, and then Trump came along, and it was like the movie “A Few Good Men!”

How Do We Defeat The New World Order Since It Is Already Here?

Answer: “I don’t know, I can only share what others have written.

The Problem of Wikipedia

Paul Craig Roberts

Over the course of my life, I have watched integrity shrivel up and die everywhere in the Western world. It is not like it was ever really abundant, but there was a goodly amount of it, and it had authority. People, especially those in public life, weren’t shameless as they are today.

In the past decade, I have watched the disappearance of free speech. An independent media disappeared in the last year of the Clinton regime when 6 mega-corporations were permitted to concentrate 90% of the media into their hands. Today free speech protected in the US Constitution is not valued as highly as the “feelings” of self-described “victim groups” who are offended by everything from truthful statements to traditional figures of speech. Even scientific discussion of the genetic basis of intelligence gives “offense” as does the use of gender-specific pronouns such as he and she.

Obviously false statements can be self-declared as true as when a biological male declares himself female and competes in women’s sports. Those who object to the obvious charade are declared “transphobic” and have to apologize. Sometimes they are fired for insisting on biological fact.

Julian Assange
Julian Assange (Please pray for him). 

Exercising press freedom, as Julian Assange did, today brings charges of espionage and is misrepresented as a threat to national security. The media speak with the same voice, and it is the voice that serves the ruling elites. Truth is nowhere in the picture. The only purpose of the media today is to control the explanations for the elites. The media throughout the Western world is merely a Ministry of Propaganda. The young, never having experienced a free press or free speech, do not know what they are.

America today is a country that my parents and my grandparents would not recognize. If they were to be resurrected, they would think they were living in George Orwell’s 1984. And they would be.

I, and others of my generation, which is now passing away, are unable to accommodate The Matrix that elites and their media whores have created for the peoples of the Western world. Consequently, we are marginalized, despite our accomplishments and our grand honors, and if we persist we are libeled and slandered.

For example, Wikipedia has described me at various times as “a conspiracy theorist,” an “anti-semite,” and “a holocaust denier.” These labels were used despite the facts that I have never written a “conspiracy theory,” I have many Jewish friends and financial supporters and have had Israeli house guests, and I have never studied the holocaust or written about it.

Owen Benjamin & The YouTube Purge

A Commentary On The New World Order Censorship Shift by Mitch Santell

Big Tech Companies Now Control What You Can See

The world of truthers is not like any other. We all come to the truth in our own way. Over the past several weeks, ‘ thousands of channels have worried about their chances of staying online with their videos.

If you don’t know Owen Benjamin, this is what he used to do in Los Angeles:

Mr. Owen just posted this video to his new YouTube Channel which received 10,000 subscribers within days of launching:

Why would YouTube want to remove Benjamin Owen? The answer is MONEY. If YouTube determines that your channel “can’t be monetized,” then they can pull it.

What are the things that Benjamin Owen used to talk about? Here is a sample video:

There are thousands and thousands of channels that may or will be dumped on December 10, 2019. Google is once again (remember they own YouTube) about to change their policies and their “algorithms.” Once again many independent creators will need to find other ways to distribute their content.

Here are some alternatives that various independent creators are using to get off of YouTube: https://fossbytes.com/best-free-youtube-alternative-sites/

Have You Had Too Much To Think?

Commentary On Distractions by Mitch Santell

Too Much To Think

Happy Thursday dear readers and followers. First, thank you for being here. Second, can you believe how crazy things are getting? Third, do you have a plan?

There is something out there that is called:  “The Truther Movement.”

While many will try to convince you that this movement was born after 9/11, it actually started after the John F. Kennedy Assassination.

One of my current favorite, “Truthers,” is Richie From Boston who has a large following on YouTube.

Here is his video for today:

The Truth About The September 25th YouTube Change

Here is another reason to leave YouTube. From my experience I would suggest hosting your videos literally anywhere but YouTube.

IMwithJay

Beginning on September 25th, 2018, YouTube is making two changes that affect every one that embeds videos on optin pages, sales pages or websites.

Please keep in mind, these changes only affect YouTube videos that are embedded on your web pages.

But, these changes can seriously degrade the user experience you want your visitors to have on your sales pages or websites.

Change #1 – Related Videos Will Always Be Shown

Typically, when YouTube videos are embedded on sales pages the rel parameter is set to to prevent related videos from being shown at the end of the video.

This is done to keep the sales page experience clean, and to avoid having competing videos show up in the related videos.

On or after September 25, 2018 this behavior changes as detailed below:

The behavior for the rel parameter is changing on or after September 25, 2018. The effect…
