Unfortunately, the YouTube God's algorithm is as stupid and bureaucratically cruel as can be. Beware people with good content, you shall be smite by the almighty algorithm! Good luck. And may common sense protect you.

I see Grey re-using all of his drawings from videos previous.
1) Sun from the...uh (moving right along)
1.5) Bee!
2) Some kind of charging pad/star trek transporter
3) How machine learns bots
4) Sword/door from LOTR
5) Other YT creators from how machine learns
6) His bot form from Hello Internet
7) Old iPads??

I don't know if it works the same way for everybody but if you pause the video at 1:52 and then scroll with your mouse wheel (the kind that has notches and clicks, not freewheeling kind ) you will see the most awesome accidental parallax effect. ( I am on windows 10 in chrome )

I think I know what YouTube is aiming for! If you just ban every creator, there's no one left to make content that can be deemed unwanted by YouTube!
Their approach is to kill everyone, so a war *can't* happen

I had roughly the same thing happen about three weeks ago. I emailed Google Accounts and yelled at them ( politely ). Two days later, I had my TooYoobed back, and got a email reply saying that they were very sorry. Sort of.

You should check out LBRY, it's a decentralized content hosting protocol not under the authority of an algorithmic overlord.

Captain disilusion did an impersination of you in a video from March 2019. Maybe he acedentaly triggered YouTube bots? Pls don't sue him or something, he's a great youtuber and I'm not the first to say: "the most underrated YouTuber of all time" Anyone reading this, go check out his channel and subscribe maybe? He needs the extra subs!

I watch videos on topics similar to the ones discussed in your videos and YouTube never suggested any of your videos to me. I only recently discovered this channel because somebody on the Internet linked to one of your videos. From this I conclude that your videos are being suppressed by the algorithm. We need Congress to step in here and protect the free exchange of ideas online because our freedoms are being taken away each time YouTube updates their terms of service. We can't have free and fair elections with this kind of algorithmic manipulation taking place and our republic is under assault like never before (and the UK's constitutional monarchy is too.) Thankfully information is getting out like never before too as people turn away from traditional media and towards independent creators.

If you think email is reliable then I've got a bridge to sell. RSS was (and to some extent still is) the only reliable link between you and your viewer. Good luck getting people to use RSS again though.

Regarding email's rebellious son: this is a serious problem, because if Gmail does manage to kill email (to the point where email from non-Gmail users just doesn't get delivered, and if you think this is a fanciful dystopia, look into SPF and DMARC), that will screw the Linux kernel project, which does all of its development over email (in ways that _really_ don't play nicely with Gmail). And even if you don't run Linux, *the internet does*.

Sounds like one of the plots of the old proto-sitcoms...
Officious person: "I'm sorry, our records show you to be deceased."
Incredulous citizen: "I'm standing RIGHT HERE!"
OP: "How do I know you're who you say you are?"
IC: "Who else would I be? Here, my Driver's License."
OP: (viewing identification) "I'm sorry, but that is not longer valid as our records show that person to be deceased."^

KnuckleHunkybuck “you’re legally deceased, but we can still sentence you for crimes committed while deceased.”
KnuckleHunkybuck - 6 dögum síðan
@NoriMori Lifehack: If declared dead, commit some form of robbery, especially against some government agency. Plead "not guilty" due to the fact that the accused was legally deceased at the time of the alleged offense. I guarantee they'll get your identity sorted out quickly and efficiently.
NoriMori - 27 dögum síðan
This isn't that far from reality. If you get legally declared dead while you're still alive, it can be difficult-to-impossible to get it reversed. In the US, anyway. It's crazy. Living people can get declared dead by a mere typo, but they have to move mountains to get their life back. Which is pretty difficult to do when you're not legally a person and are therefore unable to access the most basic services, like a driver's license, a bank account, government benefits, a job, an apartment, a student loan, or a cell phone.

I have only one problem with this video. You call Youtube a platform when it behaves like a publisher. A platform is, in your own words, "who's indifference to all, allows all upon his peak". A platform gives equal treatment to all and doesn't discriminate, but Youtube refers to itself as a platform to take advantage of the laws put in place to protect platforms and this has caused some very toxic people to misunderstand what a platform is and conflate platform and publisher. As soon as a platform shows any kind of bias for or against certain people or types of content it becomes a publisher.

I always laugh as when I sub to someone I get all videos to my sub feed without need to press the bell. Yet to press it once never will press it once. I skim my sub feed which gets enough videos a day so I can watch what I want. I don't want to watch Everything, no time and no intress in all topics and people change as time passes on. There fore I will only sub but not click the bell :^)
