Default YouTube's new policy on reloading

It looks like YouTube is changing their policy on things like reloading, field stripping and other firearm related content. The bed wetting continues.

Maybe this will get people interacting with each other a little more rather than using the computer so much. ( as I type this anonymously from a computer ) The info and videos will still be out there. Just have to use other avenues to get to them.

Not sure why the title of this thread is "YouTube's new policy on reloading."

I'm only surprised it took them this long.

But, hey, if you're in to any other morally reprehensible activity they're happy to oblige.

Firearms version of YouTube. This isn't the first time YouTube has caused problems with gun videos.

The internet was to free information. As we can see this is not how information is being handled. Censorship is very bad. Seems like the 1st amendment is being taken away in this quest against the 2nd.

All these tec. companies will control all knowledge in the not so distant future, and control who has access to it. May be time to go full luddite. (but that would mean no more TBH)

I agree it's bs and penny ante. But it's not a restriction on the 1st. Youtube is a company and can allow the content they want. They are cool with some really sketchy stuff too.

I saw where some of the gun channels were going to a pron site. lol

The problem with this is that YouTube is owned by google. They can control the content of searches through google. Itís hard for another video service to take over if you canít find it. Same reason when looking for videos now full30 never shows up in the search.

I agree, and as a hardcore capitalist, it pains me to say but many tech companies have secured monopolies that harm consumers. We need some regulations to prevent the Googles of the world from complete control of information.

It sure hasn't stopped them from running NRA ads though. They will take money from the firearms industry but won't allow them to make videos.

This is what I was talking about on the other youtube thread. The free market will pick up the pieces youtube drops, be able to make money off of it, and everything will be just fine.

Just relax, let youtube do its thing, and eventually it will become obsolete. Like horse drawn buggies, Super Nintendo, Compaq, Netscape, and *******.

Oh, ok. Makes perfect sense. Or just use Bing. Or Yahoo. Or who knows how many other search engines not owned by Google. That seem's cheaper than imposing regulations on companies, which in turn pass the costs of additional regulation onto consumers (IE me and you).

This will get worse now that net neutrality rules have been all but gutted. The search results will show in order of the highest bidder. capitalism still needs some checks and balances.

I was thinking more along the lines of enforcing antitrust laws more vigorously. I don't know what the solution is, but I know it's not good to have google, Facebook, or any platform completely dominate a market. And tech is typically winner-take-all.

What's strange about this is that awhile back they said they were banning videos of bump stocks etc. I just checked and as of this post, all the bump stock videos are still there and Slide Fire still has their channel up with 38 videos of their stocks in action and nearly 2,000 subscribers. Sort of strange.

I won't be surprised when they ban hog hunting videos and all of the thermal and night vision optic reviews we do. The day is coming.

Somebody at google/youtube is looking at a real-time, second-by-second report that shows how much additional click-thru revenue those vids are getting from the folks looking at them to see if they have been removed.

Once the clicks slow to normal, then they MAY shut them off.

Yeah, Iím wondering how you go about creating a channel there. I tried to contact them but their contact Captcha keeps throwing an error when I use their form from a mobile browser. <ó-that doesnít bode well. The Gun Collective did a live podcast (interestingly, I listened via YouTube) where they discussed Full30 and the shortcomings/problems with that platform. They are ON Full30 and have been for years. So, theirs is a pretty interesting and informed opinion. The podcast is at the top of their page on YouTube.
