Quick Hit: Youtube is the master of it's own fate

With recent news of a demonitized Youtube-hater going to Youtube and trying to kill people, it's time to ask a few questions of the non-transparent behemoth.  While the shooting was terrible and violence is not justified Youtube has treated it's content creators very poorly and if it doesn't change it will lose them, and then eventually it's audience.

Megan Fox at PJ Media expounds on this:
...While there is never an excuse for shooting innocent people, Aghdam's frustration with YouTube highlights ongoing problems that must be addressed by the company: mass deletions, loss of livelihood, and censorship. They seem to think they don't have to answer to anyone, including the press, about the asinine business decisions they keep making that suppress the First Amendment and oppress their own content creators.

Most people, like O'Brien, (who are sane and normal) take their content elsewhere, like to Vimeo and Bitchute, but the psychological games YouTube plays with them are maddening! Deleting videos, then reinstating, demonetizing then remonetizing...this goes on and on with no reasonable explanation...

YouTube has a terrible business model that treats its content creators (and the Constitution) like garbage. It should be abandoned en masse and investigated.
Her article is spot on and really worth the read. Her suggested solution, is definitely the better way to go than Aghdam's shooting rampage.
