EEVblog2 - Youtube Bans The Word Weapons
« on: December 06, 2019, 12:52:08 pm »
Seems to be an instant flag for their "team" to do a manual review when I get this first.[attachimg=1]
Happens all the time on notices from "The Daily Wire" where Andrew Klavan loves posting provocative titles, the only difference being their videos always remain banned to suite YT political bias.
** Edit seems it's back again

  If true, then then they will be one more company that I add to my list of places NOT to do any business with.

   But I just searched for the word "weapons" on Youtube.com and I got plenty of hits.

Thanks for the heart attack. 😅 Immediately had to check if Forgotten Weapons still exists. Fortunately no change on that front ... but YouTube have been making Ian's life progressively more difficult.

I think Ians channel has become big enough and his content is "serious" enough that he has some leeway

Hmm one of my former employers that is responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of people is still going strong on there. But you know, upload a video with the word “weapons” in it and banned.  :palm:

It really sounds like a load of bullshit!
Who is EEVblog2---- someone taking Dave's name in vain?

Edit, OK , I checked, but it still sounds silly.

"
 Description

The 2nd Channel for the EEVblog.
Just random related or sometimes totally *unrelated* random stuff that either isn't polished enough for the main channel, or doesn't fit in with the expectations of the main EEVblog channel content.
This could include family or other personal interest content unrelated to electronics, videos of me out on the road or on holidays etc.
It is usually not properly produced content, and is often unedited single take video straight from the camera
You should have ZERO expectations for this channel!
Complaints about quality or frequency or type of content should be only be provided in Latin, on single ply toilet paper, delivered by carrier pigeon.

Well, looking at the comments "weapons" is still up, so it looks like Dave was taken in by bullshit.

Of course, a few of the right wing nutjobs have come out among the comments, peeing themselves with glee that their predictions of "PC" dictatorship are coming true, but they are ever with us!

Hmm... then I wonder if Dave would get a different treatment depending on whether he's uploading those 'test' videos on his primary or the secondary channel.

I ditched my youtube account when I got a mail from youtube trying to persuade me to change my user name because they thought it was "unpronounceable" or some other bull. That may have been 8 years ago.

Now look at that! Facebook removed my profile picture.
