I’m banging this out off the cuff because it’s time for all anarcho-capitalists and even you cuckservative Republicucks to read the writing on the wall.
Get the fuck off YouTube now before YouTube removes you like they’ve done to so many others.
I’ve set up an account over at LBRY, which I only even heard about thanks to Jack Spirko who moved over there to get away from YouTube. I haven’t used LBRY enough yet to have an opionion about it but I’ll let you know.
Here is Jack’s post on how to move your YouTube videos to LBRY: https://www.thesurvivalpodcast.com/get-on-lbry
I’m not saying you should go to LBRY. I’m saying you need to GET THE FUCK OFF YOUTUBE. Now. Go where ever the hell you want to go, but get off YouTube.
For whatever reason YouTube has turned off all of my subscription notifications. Not only on my CLS account but also on my personal account which is completely separate from my CLS account.
Here is the email they sent me. Forebodings of the future.
Hi The Cynical Libertarian Society,
We are contacting you to let you know that starting September 22, 2020 we’re expanding our age-restriction efforts as part of our ongoing commitment to keeping YouTube creators and viewers safe.
We’ll be expanding the use of automated systems, along with our team of expert reviewers, to apply age-restrictions to videos that aren’t appropriate for all ages. With greater safeguards in place, you may see videos on your channel placed behind an age-restriction, which limits the content to viewers who are at least 18 years old. We anticipate little to no impact to your videos’ monetization, as age-restricted videos are likely not suitable for all advertisers and will have already been rated as limited or ineligible for ads. As always, you can appeal an age-restriction if you believe this was applied in error.
We’re also adjusting the way our age-restriction works off YouTube, prohibiting age-restricted videos to be viewable when embedded on most third-party sites. Users that click on an age-restricted video on another website will be redirected to YouTube, where they will only be able to view the content when logged-in. This will help ensure that no matter where the content is viewed, videos hosted by YouTube will only be viewable by the appropriate audience.
In order to comply with recent regulations, we will also roll out age-verification for users in the EU. If our systems cannot establish that a viewer is over the age of 18, regardless of the age they signed up with on their Google account, we will request they verify their age using a valid ID or credit card.
You can read more on our Community Guidelines for guidance on when content may be age-restricted, and ways in which you can age-restrict your own content. You can also read more about our efforts to protect our users here.
The YouTube Team
The video below is age restricted by YouTube. Watch it and tell me that your videos will not be next. Not only is there nothing in this video a child should be protected from, the information in this video is something all children should hear.
Next up is the video I uploaded which was removed for TOS violations before it even went live.
And no, that’s not me in the video. And yes the man in the video gives his permission for anyone to upload this video anywhere.
Stop bitching about YouTube like a fucking woman who complains and never does anything about it. Do any fucking thing at fucking all so fucking long as it fucking involves getting the fucking fuck off of fucking You fucking Tube you fucking cunt.
