    In a new recent blog post, Youtube has declared they will take a tougher stance against disturbing content that may be uploaded to their site.

    Hard to say if this will benefit those who upload videos for money reasons.

    YouTube is doing this every single year (and since 2 years ago, every single month), so it's really no surprise to me at all. ヽ(´ー`)ノ

    The thing is, it doesn't matter what you do, you will always miss content that should have been removed. I know the answer to all of this: moderation approval for EVERY video, but I know what will happen though......

    Like how videos where the political elite and Hollywood managers get exposed for being proven to be paedophiles "should have been removed", while all the fake news against Russia you can hear in the past few years "should stay"?
    Yea right.
    Even now BlackPidgeonSpeaks gets his entire channel censored for showing a dog cafe in South Korea only because "not suitable for all advertisers", but CNN's entire channel is apparently all fine, including the video about cannibalism.
    So you don't even need moderation approval to get your voice entirely silenced on YouTube, simply voicing your own opinion that's not on par with the mainstream media narrative is enough.

    If there is a system, it can be hacked/broken/stepped around.

    I think YouTube should have a mature video section, and illegal content like animal abuse videos are removed. This new rule may lead to some short films being banned if the uploader forgot to say it is fiction like a lot of user content on YouTube which is uploaded for entertainment purposes-only.

    The problem is that people in the west often can't see the difference between realistic and fictional stuff.
    One good example would be the difference between child pornography and lolicon.

    In the east, lolicon is just a 2D drawing of a child in a more sexual sense, and it's just considered nerdy and is therefore legal.
    Child pornography involves photographs of real children being sexually abused, which is considered a sick thing and is therefore illegal.
    However, in the west both ways is considered the same thing, and therefore illegal.

    This has caused many owners of western Mastodon instances to blacklist a big number of Japanese Mastodon instances (mostly Pawoo.net), though you should keep in mind that 3 Japanese instances make up for the top 5 biggest instances in user count, status count, and connection count.

    Sorted by user count.
    Sorted by connection count, which is the only top 5 where not 3 Japanese instances exist, but even 4 of them!
    Sorted by connection count.

    I feel a worker who is working as a video moderator, or administrator on YouTube should be knowledgeable enough to know the difference between realistic and fictional videos.

    But, the government and concerned people will most likely still try to contact YouTube to remove fictional controversy videos which is not harming anyone.

    I will admit people do have a stick up their rear about these things, but at the same time I can see their view point about the material being a bad positive outlet.

    I know that it a lot of people get suggested related videos which tend to offend people, and these people complain a lot in the comments. Maybe having the ability to turn off related videos will cause people to stop complaining so much.

    A lot of countries have a lot of child abuse crime, so I can see how people are afraid that more controversial videos may inspire more crazy people to abuse children.

    Honestly, I believe exactly because of the mentality to watch out to not be racist causes people to be racist without them even knowing that.
    Like, you start worrying that you'll eventually hurt somebody's feelings, which puts you under pressure, and you'll still unknowingly act racist to someone.

    Same goes with child abuse, your view on who's poor and who's not, among other types of so-called 'awarenesses'.

    It's a difference I've actually noticed quite some time ago.
    For example, western Europe has people from different cultures, and all practise their own cultures both openly and privately.
    Native western Europeans feel pressured not to say anything that the other people and/or people around you might seem "offensive".
    Instead, they just keep it silenced, and spit it out among friends with the same skin colour, cultural background, etc.

    Eastern Europeans on the other hand openly tell a black person or a Muslim they're not welcome on their soil (with exceptions to major cities), but I see them being happy way more often.

    The far east is a bit more complex in this case, because they try not to even think of any differences in the first place, and remain very happy because they don't even think about it.
    And people that come to such countries are expected to comply with the local culture not the reverse, which takes away the nerves to not say anything that might potentionally hurt someone.

    The bad mental health treatment options for people with mental problems in some western countries can be one of the reasons for some of the racism, child abuse, and other social problems in the west. People with mental problems in some western countries may not be able to afford treatment for their mental disorders which can make people with mental problems be abusive.

    Sounds realistic, until you come to the western countries where health insurrance is mandatory, and is therefore affordable to everyone (and at the same time gets abused by health care institutions).

    Sometimes, the slow treatment with affordable and poorly run healthcare institutions can cause some patients to have long wait times, and lead to more anger and sadness when they don't know when they will get treated, and if they will get treated for a mental condition where a illness becomes harder to treat the longer they are forced to wait.

    I read a few articles online of people being mistreated in health care institutions, so some patients at some institutions may end up coming out worse than before after they are released from the hospital.

    I think Google is trying to make Youtube child safe. IN the recent times, Youtube has not only unpublished "disturbing" videos, but also made it tough for content creators to make money. Now you need at least 1000 subscribers and 4000 views to be able to enrolled for monetization program.
