A message from YouTube

The friendly folks at YouTube Trust & Safety sent me a cheerful little message:

Hi Darkstream,

Our team has reviewed your content, and, unfortunately, we think it violates our hate speech policy. We’ve removed the following content from YouTube:

Video: Darkstream 607: The decline of the US empire


We know that this might be disappointing, but it’s important to us that YouTube is a safe place for all. If content breaks our rules, we remove it. If you think we’ve made a mistake, you can appeal and we’ll take another look. Keep reading for more details.

How your content violated the policy

Content glorifying or inciting violence against another person or group of people is not allowed on YouTube. We also don’t allow any content that encourages hatred of another person or group of people based on their membership in a protected group. We review educational, documentary, artistic, and scientific content on a case-by-case basis. Limited exceptions are made for content with sufficient and appropriate context and where the purpose of posting is clear.

How this affects your channel

Because it’s the first time, this is just a warning. If it happens again, your channel will get a strike and you won’t be able to do things like upload, post, or live stream for 1 week. 

What’s interesting about this is that the video was only available to silver and gold channel members. Which means that it wasn’t the usual SJWs, but rather, some gamma who paid to join the channel, then rooted around in more than 30 videos to try to find something that would trigger Trust & Safety.

So henceforth, all prerecorded Darkstreams will only be available on Unauthorized. Live Darkstreams will be recorded on YouTube, then removed.

UPDATE: Meanwhile, YouTube has absolutely no problem featuring videos made by actual pedophiles in police custody.
