The collusion is blatant at this point. Being aware of just a little truth is like having your nose rubbed in shit.

"Child directed" can be a subjective term, like "commercially viable" is as well. Basically, youtube can label you one or the other and poof, you're out. Time to jump ship, which will take some attention since I personally use it every day. If everyone aware of the censorship and collusion on youtube makes a concerted effort to leave it for an alternative, it may hurt them in their bank accounts.

Seems legit, would have to do some heavy research to verify and I haven't done that. But if it is accurate, I gave way too much last year to Lockheed Martin and Boeing.

Ah, I replied a little fast there. Since the youtube new user agreement just recently came out, I was associating it with that.

Seems like a big policing job for one agency, wonder if they will have a committee to monitor, take reports, and if youtube will hire their own compliance group.

Great quote.

Bob Ross has a similiar quote, something like "Talent is just interest pursued." If you are interested enough and you dive deep, you become smarter and happier.

Not surprising, but still....more proof of the crackdown on alternative points of view. Hope an alternative platform can be viable in the future.
