    watch the video in OP, that is a real thing youtube is rolling out.


    now think what if the people you think are politically directly opposing your general world view get a monopoly on it... be it through apathy of the opposition or a mass organized group effort conspiracy.

    If that sounds 'tin foil hat' then know this has happened several times on wikipedia, both on the scale of several pages, entire topics, and the whole pedia...

    Now I understand.
    Yeah thats pretty shitty.
    It's like when people quote how many people support X, Y or Z as though it validates it.

    Strength in numbrs doesn't decide what is right or wrong, or factually correct, just what is popular.

    So basically Youtube is going to become an echo chamber of the most popular opinions?
    Well that means that Aliens are real, time travel was invented by hitler who now lives on the moon, Niburu is going to collide with earth tomorrow & there are 10 cool hacks to iron my shirt quicker.

    Now you are thinking with portals... and you get it.

    Just remember there will always be more people that associate with flat earth models then that are actively organising to promote globe earth models... imagine what that can do.

    ya youtube is totally perfect the way it is now

    oh apparently you guys know everything about a new feature of youtube by watching a minute ad
    keep being stupid, empires forums. i thought people like to emulate from the coolest person on the forum. which in that case why is noone acting like me

    also i agree giving random members moderator ability is bad. this is why mcgyver should lose his mod

    you dont know what you are talking about, the prollem is that one of the tiers gives you a tool to mark videos as flagged for inappropreate in bulk... Combined with weighted flagging and 3 strike policy this will mean 3 youtube heroes can take down pewdiepies channel 'for the lulz' by just flagging all his videos within 5 minutes and the channel is gone untill youtube reinstates.

    its like giving the abusive power that organised groups have and give it to individuals... Yes 1 hero cant bring down a channel by their selves yet but in their own they can already cause a world of hurt by doing the damage that normally would only be possible if you had a couple dosen people organised. And since that is already a real problem this only aggrevates the issue

    This is, essentially, creating a giant hugbox on Youtube. Only videos that wont get flagged are ones that agree with the hive mind collective, which is creating a hugbox. It's a stupid system for many reasons, but this is the top one. Videos about Trump would get flagged by liberals, videos about Hillary by conservatives (Though I doubt it cause Conservatives usually dont care enough).

    We need to bring back some offensive culture, it challenges our way of thinking. The internet was such a great place when I was younger because there was much more out there, there was much more idea challenging thoughts and it made me think about what was going on, but now shits getting flagged as "offensive"... it's ridiculous.

    When i was 8 i went on a site called neopets, its a site with kids as a target audience.
    I chatted there publicly with a small group of people that identified as communists, and the talks were respectful and constructive.

    we need more political points of view being debated for being a different point of view... we need to attack anything that looks like ideological laziness or band-wagoning.

    I really miss the old internet, and im starting to think /b/ being a containment board is a bad thing... since it contains btards from the rest of the internet too... and we need those vile depraved fuckers to be everywhere, watching our ideological backs.

    are you even browsing imageboards? /b/ is literally board filled with porn and useless shit, it's not the old /b/ anymore
    if you want REAL containment board go to /x/, /pol/, /r9k/, maybe 8ch /isis/ and /bapho/
    also why are we discussing imageboards now

    Either you misunderstood me or you dont know what containment boards are, and /b/ definitely is and always was one... also the current /b/ besides being a bit faster moving then when i started but a little less fast as its fastest days is pretty much constant in quality of content.

    the whole 'newfag/oldfag' and 'summerfag/oldfag' dichotomy is a meme... its not real and /b/ has never been good...

    flagging doesnt mean remove. i gave you a source that said they dont have powers to remove. and here you go again with this fantasy that you desperately wish were true so you can go on about "polticial correctness"

    i wonder if you have enough pride to admit you're wrong
