  • [ – ] Prepperymike reply They should just rename it social justice tube
  • [ – ] Natanahel reply 'ONLINE TERRORISM' ... ... ... let that sink in
    • Kizzume parent reply It's so messed. It's worse than "online violence".
    • SirRidealot parent reply ADL wantS to fight "online terrorism" and do nothing about raising awareness of the real terrorists vast majority of whom are Islamic zealots, hiding behind their freedom of religion.
  • GreyMovies reply YouTube has already slit its own throat. Now that the damage is done, it's just decapitating itself. I was hoping they'd come back, but I think they're far past the point of no return. How disappointing...
  • [ – ] Raptor_Actual reply Made the jump to vid.me today. Also switched from Twitter to Gab, and Facebook to Mind.com. Even switched from Chrome to Firefox. I'm done with the lot of them.
    • JosiahEverson parent reply Same here fam. Down with Google.
    • [ – ] IAmMarshicus parent reply Same. Although after a decade of using Firefox, I've switched to Brave (it is built upon Chrome though). FF started adding political messages to their welcome page, the one I remember was telling me to read up on the Paris Climate Agreement rather than listening to a 'weird uncle'. Imo, a web browser shouldn't be lecturing its users on non-web related politics - right or wrong, it's boring.
      • sapphire2017 parent reply It sounds like we are turning into Communist China when web browsers are lecturing their users about politics.
      • Raptor_Actual parent reply Didn't know that. And yes, I agree. I'll check out Brave. Thanks!
      • [ – ] AntiThat parent reply I'm curious as to why you support Brave? Brave lets google spy on you on just about every page you visit. And have you noticed that Brave uses photos glorifying San Francisco? That's no accident. You're right about Mozilla, of course.
        • [ – ] IAmMarshicus parent reply I went to Brave after hearing that a co-founder of Mozilla is working on it. So far I'm liking it - despite a lack of features due to it being in beta. Not too keen on your SF conspiracy theory, but Google is why I mentioned that it is built upon Chrome. I don't know the ins-and-outs of the code, so I can't be certain on privacy. The only thing I'd point out is that next to an option to enable Google Widevine, there is a disclaimer acknowledging that they have no control over the data and advise against using it. That seems a bit unnecessary if they are aware of/letting Google spy on users. But as I said, I may very well be wrong.
          • [ – ] AntiThat parent reply Let me elaborate: Brave does not actively give info about you to google. But the last I'd seen, Brave does not block most of the ways that google uses to collect info on you, which is what a privacy browser should do.
            • [ – ] IAmMarshicus parent reply Dw, I've not taken it that way - nor was I doing the same to you. I get your point, but I didn't think that they were conservative. I'm more under the impression that they're 'neutral' - just a web browser company concerned with the user's experience (and privacy). What you say is something that I've always had suspicions about, regardless of the browser I'm using. Tbh though, I've never expected *total* privacy - even with a VPN. If you could point me to something that explains Brave's situation better (Chrome-based privacy flaws), please share. And do you have any other suggestions of alternatives to Firefox/Brave?
              • [ – ] AntiThat parent reply It's not a Chrome based thing, it has to do with any browser. But specifically in Brave, do Ctrl+Shift+I to bring up the "developer tools". Then make sure you are on the Network tab. Then go to any website, and you'll see all the internet connections that the browser makes. Especially look for any that go to google and facebook. A privacy browser should be blocking a lot more than Brave blocks. One thing Brave does somewhat block are attempts at "browser fingerprinting". Next, try Firefox with the addon called uBlock Origin. That allows you to actually block most spying. If you set it to block "third party frames" then you also block a lot of potential malware, since a lot of malware comes in that way (in ads). There really isn't any browser that is good out of the box. The problem with Brave is as you've mentioned that you can't use privacy (or any) addons, so you can't protect yourself. Palemoon is more privacy orien...moreted, but you have to find an older version of uBO to use with it. It's also kind of crashy.
                • IAmMarshicus parent reply Hmm, I did as you said - Brave is definitely blocking connections from Google - nothing looks off to me, that said, I don't really know what else I should be looking for. Checked out Palemoon, says it is built off Firefox? Doubt I could go back to the load times, aha. I think I'll stick with Brave a little longer, see how it develops - hopefully some similar addons from Firefox will start making it over. If not, I may have to try something else or bite the bullet and use FF again. Cheers.
          • AntiThat parent reply Well, it's not an SF conspiracy theory. It's apparently their corporate culture, the same as any other company from SF. My point is that if you are thinking it's conservative, it's not. I'm not meaning to be criticizing you, btw. I could point out how to quickly see that google knows about where you go, but it's technical and you might find it boring.
    • yourvagismysafespace parent reply Fun Firefox fact; unlike gag-all, if you use the desktop version on mobile you can play (for example, audio books on utube, yeah I know fuck utube) in the background with the screen off.
  • [ – ] GSP-4ME reply Free speech is non negotiable - warts and all
  • [ – ] BigMike777 reply Youtube must believe they're too big to fail, but goodness are they stress testing this belief to illogical extremes.
    • [ – ] Kizzume parent reply They certainly do think they're too big to fail, but with the backing of Google, they can morph into something else and not hurt too badly. Unfortunately.
      • AntiThat parent reply Congratulations. You're the first channel owner on vidme that I've seen replying to a commenter. Although many others are calling for a pitchfork rebellion, they don't seem to be willing to condescend to actually mingle with us peasants.
    • paulyroc parent reply I'm not sure why there isn't a class action lawsuit at this time. YouTube and google are still getting all the ad revenue and have a new (illegal) excuse not to share it
  • [ – ] Basilisker reply I like the VidMe community!
  • [ – ] CaptainFrugal reply This YouTube change as well as others has pushed me to Vidme even more. This is clearly a way to silence people. I have been told that subs have not been getting notifications and now I am certain of it.
    • JohnnyWishbone parent reply Recently I have not been receiving video notifications. I'm done with Youtube.
    • [ – ] smithpolly parent reply CaptainFrugal : People are also having their comments banned without been told the comment is banned. The person putting up the comment can see it but nobody else can.
  • [ – ] lionsground reply :) I have been saying this since June 2016. The European Commission announced on May 31 2016, the “code of conduct” to tackle illegal hate speech online. Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter and YouTube (hereinafter “the IT Companies”) are in together with the EU against violence or hatred directed against a group of persons or a member of such a group defined by reference to race, colour, religion, descent or national or ethnic origin. In the code of conduct they refer to the COUNCIL FRAMEWORK DECISION 2008/913/JHA of 28 November 2008, that Racism and xenophobia are direct violations of the prin­ciples of liberty, democracy, respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms and the rule of law, principles upon which the European Union is founded and which are common to the Member States. The European Union’s Definition of “hate speech” and “incitement to violence” is so vague that it could include virtually anything deemed politically incorrect by European authorities, i...morencluding criticism of mass migration, Islam or even the EU itself, says opponents. Nobody wanted to listen no everybody is nagging about it because they are scared.
    • lionsground parent reply Read the code of conduct here https://lionsground.com/internet-free-speech/
    • [ – ] Debrajo33 parent reply I'll fight it until I die. Supreme Court, USA Hate Speech is Free Speech. Even if it's the last thing they do right, I'll stand eith this.
      • lionsground parent reply Me 2 but I already lost 80% of organic traffic :) Big brother Google don't like me much but I don't like companies who avoid tax on huge scale and is still not in prison
  • Makoto_Chan reply It means that they are going to stop any kind of thoughtful videos.
  • Ms_K reply F*CK YOUTUBE!
  • [ – ] CrispyToast reply The CEO of YouTube Susan Wojcicki implementing such a thing and is already turning into a safe space. I know this because Wojcicki is mainly a SJW herself, and she's strangling the fuck out of it. So I think it's time that we should leave YouTube and just stick with Vid.Me for a long time.
    • AndyMoreton007 parent reply I agree a mass exodus would show what we thought if their silence anyone with an opinion that doesn't fit the narrative of the MSM or your countries agenda or the global agenda. See how much there advertising revenue drops and I do think it will be significant. But there is still a lot of good stuff I need to get through on there so I'd suggest posting all new to here, maintain your YouTube so you can signpost your subs here and your back catalogue still available as we're all at different stages in our journeys to become aware/awake but start uploaded all your previous videos here now in preparation then at some point none of us need use it. I just hope vidme isn't a subsidiary of Google Facebook or whoever as most companies in the world are party of 6 or 7 conglomerates that have 30,40,50 or more levels to them in terms of parent companies who own 10 businesses each are all part of a company that owns 10 parent companies and is itself then one of 10 withing a grandparent or great gra...morendparent if you view it as a family tree!
    • Kizzume parent reply If it really does get as bad as it seems it's going to, I'll still post my "safe" videos on YouTube, but everything else will be here and on BitChute.
  • [ – ] Blumiere reply I've been looking into starting on political videos. It's getting really difficult to see YouTube as a realistic option. Especially with this recent nonsense. On a related note, it really looks like Vidme is completely there in terms of software and monetization now.
  • ccpvpgodz reply Everyone is going to hate YouTube
  • VonHelton reply 2:46 If you disagree with Islam taking over the West, your content *will* be hidden. Now ask me how I know this.
  • [ – ] Boobe2007 reply "IT'S HAPPENING"
  • MaximVB reply Vidme is where IT IS AT! 👌😊
  • TeamTaitoNahtanoj reply YouTube and Google will fall & vid.me and BitChute will rise...
  • MrFixIt reply Let them do it, let them dig their own graves!
  • [ – ] three37even reply Good thing I ported over. Now I just need to figure out how to make vidme play on my big tv.
  • [ – ] POVincent reply Damn, I'm glad I found Vidme. Youtube will always have its place in the annals of internet history, but now it is a far cry from the site we all use to love.
  • [ – ] Debrajo33 reply I hate it. And so will millions of teenagers and kids who don't even watch tv.
  • jhone1980 reply and they wonder why people dislike jews
  • [ – ] SamEarl13 reply I really don't get why they still use the counter extremism excuse, taking away key features for having an opinion won't stop people from having them (I imagine Big YouTubers would just embed the videos on their own site with their own comment section but small ones are more screwed than they already are).
  • BobFrenkid reply Such a shame such a good website has gone to crap.
  • sapphire2017 reply The only thing you are going to be safe posting on YouTube is Social Justice Warrior videos and your own cute pet videos because anything else tends to run afoul of their copyright law system or hate speech rules.
  • sapphire2017 reply Hate Speech is anything that the Social Justice Warrior crowd and the political far leftist establishment that dominates the West hates to hear and disagrees with. A White Supremacist shortened to Supremacist according to far leftist controlled YouTube is anyone that expresses a contrary view to Social Justice and is right of Communist Chairman Mao in terms of politics. Even a black person can be called a White Supremacist if he supports Donald Trump or disagrees with the Social Justice Warrior crowd. If you are a black supremacist who thinks blacks are superior to all other races and who hates white people and other races and denigrates whites and others as inferior subhuman beings on your YouTube channel you should be fine as leftists claim only white people can be racist and Supremacist. The term supremacist and white supremacist is very misused word by the left and has lost its original meaning. As for controversial religious stuff that would be anything that pisses off a Muslim...more or is Christian in nature. You can safely post radical Islamic videos calling for violence in Arabic on YouTube no problem as leftists claim Islam is the religion of peace and all Muslims are little angels who never do anything violent or hateful only straight white male cisgender Christians do. If you are Christian and post bible verses in your YouTube videos you are not welcome at YouTube anymore as leftists disagree with and hate Christianity and see Christianity as controversial period.
  • [ – ] Jedrin reply They don't mention Islamic extremism.
    • sapphire2017 parent reply It doesn't exist according to leftists and YouTube is controlled by leftists. Terrorism according to the left is only caused by straight white cisgender right wing males of European Christian heritage.
    • Kizzume parent reply Yeah, I guess truth is terrorism now. :(
  • Auceza reply vid.me > NaziTube
  • NathanSifuGaming reply Don't worry, they'll still allow #elsagate videos to stay up and fully monetized as pedophiles leave their delightful comments, so progressive!
  • [ – ] EDP2000 reply FOR REAL?!?!? YOUTUBE NEEDS TO FUCKING STOP THIS SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Kizzume parent reply They're definitely not going to stop, they're already on their way to making a lot more money. With these TV station deals they're making with YouTube TV, they're on their way to the bank. Unfortunately.
  • Kentantino reply if you guys are expecting to have freedom of speech in a place that don't even allow people to talk about them you are in the wrong place lol look on my channel and you will understand why.... politics is not even on trending and it will never be. I got unverified just for the fact that i talk to a critic of this place lol
  • Kentantino reply hahahah they have my name under spam so if you say my name it falls in spam section vidme vidme vidme lol
  • [ – ] shmahat reply Oh weird, kizzume's on here! Hi, kizzume
  • thenewalfmonster68 reply Youtube will all ways be shit.
  • HandsomeMGTOW reply Youtube is Feminazitube!
  • sfkillmelater reply I'm so happy to join the vidme invasion and be part of the SJUtube exudus!!
  • [ – ] TitansTestTeam reply More like ShutTheFuckUpTube.com
  • [ – ] ErickAlden reply Vid.me will rise.
  • CrazyJoeWurst37 reply It sucks that happening to youtube good thing got my vidme account still
  • SiriusJones reply Stop going to youtube and you will nothing to gripe about.
  • Jedrin reply I'm on vidme because youtube has become boring, used to spend hors on it but now, for some unknown reason.... the good stuff is getting harder to find. Another funny thing is the big Youtubers that used to have annoying adds now embed advertising and or sponsors in a much more viewer friendly way. YouTube must be losing a lot of advertising money but for the MSM it seems money doesn't matter.
  • Debrajo33 reply So glad you're here. I'm so sorry. I'll make sure I'm following you.
  • Nickkey24 reply and that why we havr vidme
  • TerloriaKP reply We are there fuel if there's no fuel there's no rule
  • PsychMike reply I'm an independent who sways democratic and YouTube is becoming too liberal and bigoted for me. It's Disgusting
  • kingspaladin reply This is great. YouTube is running itself into the ground. I'm hoping vidme doesn't let this happen.
  • CaptainWingless reply Maybe they'll end up actually using their brains and fix their mistakes.
  • tonygreene113 reply SJWtube is really not worth the pixels spent.
  • Hillmanant reply Well vidme will take YouTube's place on my home screen I guess
  • Nirvana_o reply "supremacist content" taken literally is the SJW movement and means that like twitter, this 'update' would hit SJW's harder than anti's. This is a very bad step and should, be seen as the begin of the decline of the youtube brand.
  • Dustieattic reply Yeah....Gonna give up on Youtube......hate to cause there is good non politic stuff but I HATE censorship of any kind and will avoid those who implement it or show they are pushing a Liberal agenda (ESPN, Kelloggs corporation.....)
  • burgerMan reply Fun fact: Jigsaw's AI system was used to build the Perspective API, which is used to gauge how "toxic" content is. I bring it up because YouTube admitted to rolling it into the site. In other words, YouTube is aggressively trying to make itself into that old Itchy and Scratchy skit where they just sit in rocking chairs and drink lemonade.
  • [ – ] AndyMoreton007 reply I think we all need to get ahead of this and jump to vidme. Fuck YouTube they've taken down so many truth channels in recent weeks and NONE encouraged nor had extremism terrorism religious or supremacist content they simply showed the same clips that have been on MSM but broke them down as staged which actually is saying there is no extremism in that event so complies with their policy more one could argue. I got a strike this week and I've NEVER made a video! I had a playlist called 'Manchester Arena 2017' and added various videos about it to it. One must have been flagged and deleted but they removed my entire playlist from my account. Has anyone heard of this before? And could it be due to comments I may have made? Anything I said was about us viewers taking the next step & reporting the evidence found by video makers to the appropriate authorities. Of course I know that it may not go anywhere but at least it's on record for any possible future inquiries and the people in these orga...morenisations are some of those we really need to reach so when they see what we're reporting (& use the MSM clip but point out anomalies as though you've spotted them not the channel so they don't get heat) and point out clear contradictions but any investigation gets shut down we may be able to start them thinking and hopefully try whistle blowing it organising internal resistance though nothing illegal just asking questions and challenging superiors decisions. Andy
    • Kizzume parent reply I can't stand what they're doing, but claiming that this is all about them taking down "truth channels" is a bit disingenuous. But otherwise, you're right.
  • Xperience reply ahh good to be here in my new home :)
  • aaliyah_holt1995 reply Probably politics channels, news channels etc
  • I_Dont_Have_Creativity reply i can somewhat agree with this their censoring anything that dosent fit their agenda
  • [ – ] Fagmin reply Yea and here i don't have to worry about Vidme allowing Tariq Nasheed's goons to false flag my videos so i can start reuploading the videos they took down. :/ sucks i had near 1000 subs now i need to start from jack shit again. Took me 6 years to get where i was.
    • [ – ] Kizzume parent reply Ugh, Tariq is a jackass. He's utterly ridiculous.
      • Fagmin parent reply Yea, and all i did was a shitty little review/play through of his App on android. It wasn't even all that good and i Loose my fucking channel for it. Now I'm boned here too cos i need to be verified to upload more than three videos. All i wanna do is entertain people and i can't even do that. fuck.
  • Ken_Keehl reply Family Friendly sucks.
  • Rin_Michaelis reply I totally agree with you. This was a great video.
  • [ – ] Dos_Gaming reply Join us Kizzume! JOIN US!
  • [ – ] PorkCow reply As long as Youtube is the only app on PS4 and isn't holding Filthy Frank to their crappy "rules", it won't matter. Before long they'll offer a public statement claiming republicans won't be allowed to post and they'll still have the monopoly on video streaming rivaling Netflix itself. They won. They won until the world burns and they're selling the matches.
  • [ – ] CrispyToast reply Well, at lease we have Vid.Me!
  • [ – ] Doge69 reply I'm still staying at YouTube, Vid.me is not my type of site, There content lately is terrible.
