    Probably not, unless Facebook starts actively poaching YT content creators.
    Even then they are most likely to take family & advertiser friendly approach.

    Some demonetised youtubers seem to be moving to Vid.me.

    Seems like Charlottesville was the final straw for Google higher-ups, as they are going all-out now.
    Shame to see that even people like LGR are impacted by this tho, as he is almost pathologically nice and inoffensive.

    Google has been planning on purging all independent creators, not just the "offensive" ones, for a good while now. They want YT to essentially be MSNBC or Fox News Online, nobody who isn't bankrolled by some larger corporation will be allowed. My guess is that they saw Charlottesville as a good time to finally start purging en masse because everyone is too distracted by that shit to notice the purge happening.

    Actually Youtube rolled new wave of demonetisation couple days before Charlottesville.

    The Rageaholic videos about it behind the links:
    https://vid.me/lofxD
    https://vid.me/vv5kh


    BTW. How do I embed stuff from Vid.me. Media button doesn't seem to work in this.

    Besides MSM and current new media giants probably saw that their situation wouldn't get any better organically.
    They probably decided to prune potential competition while they still could.

    Whether or not it was planned & started beforehand, Charlottesville provided them with relatively sound backing for their actions. Most folks will have a hard time criticizing anything that is outwardly aimed against hate-speech now.

    That backing is shit and everybody knows it. It should scare normal leftists/liberals too. If free speech disappear the right won't be the only ones suffering from it. Farewell to discourse.

    Actually I think this is a "test purge" of sorts. They're targeting groups that are not only currently vilified by the public, but also a few other fringe groups that they'd just like to be rid of because [INSERT SJW NON-SPEAK HERE].

    Then they'll sit back and gauge the public's reaction. If no one takes action against them (which doesn't appear to be the case so far) then they'll prepare for the next, bigger purge down the line.

    Google needs to be taken down on anti-trust laws ASAP. The lunatics have taken over the asylum.

    The more videos Youtube purges, the deeper they dig their grave. There WILL be an alternative to them sooner or later if they provide shitty service and censor the videos.

    There are but Youtube remained due to well ... people not having a reason to move, now they do.

    In fact what made people stay in Youtube was payola, if they make content creators to move away so will their audience, anyone with brain realizes that, just take a look at Machinima after they cut Pewdiepie because of Levis deal ... he didnt suffer any hit as Machinima just continued it down-spiral, hell look at Google trying to break-in with programing and ditched him because of Disney ... good luck with that without him or anything that have a following.

    It is only a matter of time until Youtube dies, remember DIGG? Remember MySpace?

    This person is paid to write for a number of publications. Just let that fact sink in. And they wonder why people have problems with them and call them incompetent.

    It'll be some poetic justice if Youtube's actions results in better alternatives.

    I for one block all ads. TVTropes was listing how many ad-free pages I viewed. 35 was my count. :lol:

    Youtube only wants shit like MKHD, casey neistat, unbox therapy, shills for companies that make harmless videos about absolutely nothing.

    LGR has built his reputation on making "harmless vidoes about absolutely nothing", namely old games and older hardware.

    He got hit by the demonitization stick this week anyway.

    No one is safe.

    No one except the big media companies like CNN and so on. Keep in mind, Google is gearing up to turn YouTube into "Internet TV" and has been trying to court as many large media corporations as possible. This involves, of course, crushing any "little guy" competition these corporations would face on YouTube.

    I like how they're desperately trying to shame you into turning adblock off now.

    Youtube is seriously dumb. Nazis are making a big comeback now because the discussion is so heavily censored all over the Internet that the people who just want to speak their minds without being punished for it drift to places that allow pretty much everyone to say whatever he wants. And "everyone" includes literal Nazis and other extremists that would be banned everyone else. For example: people want to talk about vidya without being bothered by PC moderators, they switch from Facebook groups and message boards to 4chan/v/. There they can hang out with lovely people from /pol/ who are more than happy to provide handy statistics proving that black people are actually untermensch and talk about how gassing the Jews is not only a logical choice but also something Jesus would do if he had a chance. Before the whole insane leftist crusade against everyone Nazis were a laughingstock hanging on niche boards nobody but them visited, now they are cool again. Chasing everyone with a dissenting opinion from Youtube will force everyone to look for an open minded alternative, and such alternative might just be a perfect platform for actual National Socialists.
