Go mad. :lol:

Or better still, put me on ignore again. ;)


The fact you are convinced you are a Commie does not mean you are not a Commie; the fact you think you irritate does not mean you irritate ;)

I dare YOU to put ME on ignore. Then you won't know what I say about you though, and that is frightening isn't it? :lol:

I put you on ignore only after you do your Absinthe amok again and write all kind of obscenities with ALL CAPS. :lol:

The day that Google Whistleblower dropped Google Docs to Veritas? Vorhies?

Google reportedly SWAT'd him.

The company called the police on him and told them that he was suicidal and may kill people a few hours before his meeting. Naturally, SWAT send out and cordoned off his block, brought out the big guns and the dogs.

If this is true... WOW. :shock: If..

Been slowly making it's way around. Although I wouldn't be surprised if the Big-G were making such headlines disappear into a blacklist.

As I said yesterday, Big-G reportedly sent armed gov't men to one of their whistlblower's house, telling them that he was suicidal and may off people...

Youtube is intent to slowly strangle itself . . . or shift its market share to India/Pakistan I guess . . .

YouTube says it's removing more hate speech than before but controversial channels remain up

Kaya Yurieff byline
By Kaya Yurieff, CNN Business

Updated 9:00 AM ET, Tue September 3, 2019

New York (CNN Business)Despite instituting a more stringent policy around hateful content in June, YouTube has been criticized for doing too little and not providing enough transparency.

In a blog post on Tuesday, YouTube said it had removed more than 100,000 videos and over 17,000 channels for violating its hate speech rules in April through June, which is five times more than it removed in the previous three months. It also took down over 500 million comments over hate speech.

YouTube attributed the increase to its recent efforts to counter the proliferation of hate content. In June, the company updated its hate speech policy to include a ban on supremacist content and the removal of videos that deny well-documented atrocities, such as the Holocaust, and the 2012 shooting rampage at Sandy Hook elementary school.

YouTube, which is owned by Google (GOOGL), also said it's been able to remove more objectionable content before it was widely viewed — efforts that have resulted in an 80% decrease in views on content that is later taken down for violating YouTube's rules.

Despite the new policy, YouTube has not taken action on channels belonging to prominent purveyors of hate, such as white supremacist Richard Spencer and former KKK leader David Duke.


Continued at above link.

So CNN seems upset that You Tube is still allowing a platform for white supremacist Richard Spencer.

No faggots allowed...

Quote:
A woman advertising faggots at her café called Fanny's says Google removed the post - because it was deemed 'offensive'.

Jo Evans-Pring, 63, was promoting her award-winning funky retro music diner 'Fanny's Rest Stop Café' in Newport, Wales.

Self-confessed technophobe Ms Evans-Pring turned to friend Chris Barnbrook for help - and the pair set up a website, Facebook page - and even began paying for adverts on Google.

Within just a few weeks, the mum-of-four, found that her business sales were soaring once again.

Image

But one day after Ms Evans-Pring posted a picture of faggots with peas and onion gravy on her website, she got an email from Google stating the advert had been removed.

In the email, Google cited their content policy explaining not to post anything that could be construed as 'inappropriate and offensive content'.

Ms Evans-Pring said that she was 'absolutely startled by what's happened' and claims 'the world's gone totally mad if people are getting worked up over that'.

She claimed: 'People need to spend their time dealing with real problems, not things like whether or not the word 'faggots' when selling that meal is hateful.

'There comes a time where businesses need to reinvent themselves, and - after eight years of running the shop - I decided now was one of those times.

'I'm a complete technophobe, so I asked Chris to take care of posting stuff on the Internet for me.

'We set up a website, and a Facebook page, to attract the locals to the café .

'Fanny's has been doing really well because of the Internet campaign. We've noticed a big change in the past couple of weeks.

'People have been coming from a little further afield because we're paying for adverts when they google for places to eat.

'They've loved coming to Fanny's because it's fun and retro.

'I posted an advert on the website for Fanny's faggots with peas and onion gravy, a pretty traditional meal and one of my favourites, on the 27th.

'But the next day I got an email from Google saying they'd removed a post of ours, and then referred us to their posting contents policy.

'Me and Chris had a look, and realised they'd moved the faggots one - and we couldn't think it was for any reason other than it having the word 'faggots' in it.'

Fanny's Rest Stop Café was even awarded a Certificate of Excellence 2019 prize, and has been scoring a consistent four-and-a-half stars, on TripAdvisor.

Faggots is a traditional dish, long popular in the English Midlands and South and Mid Wales, made from minced off-cuts and offal.

But the word 'faggot' was misconstrued by Google administrators to refer to the pejorative term of abuse referring to gay men.

Ms Evans-Pring's email read: 'Your post was taken down.

'Recently, a post was removed from your Business Profile. To help ensure your posts create a positive experience for users, please review our content policy.'

Google can unilaterally remove content its administrators deem 'inappropriate and offensive' - according to its content policy.

Their content policy page states: 'Published content cannot promote hatred or incited violence against individuals or groups based on ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, sexual orientation or gender identity.

'Content cannot be used to harass or bully individuals, including direct physical threats or exposing private information that could be used to carry out implied threats.

'Content that contains obscene, profane or offensive language or gestures.

'Images or video published on this service shouldn't include nudity or sex acts.

'Content cannot include profanity, slang terms that are sexually graphic and offensive, terms that are common signals for pedophilia, content that promotes pedophilia, bestiality, sexual violence or content that promotes escort services or other services that may be interpreted as providing sexual acts in exchange for compensation.

'Links to adult content are not permitted.'

Chris said: 'I thought it would be ideal to promote the café to locals who might not have heard of Fanny's Rest Stop Café.

'Not initially realising the power of Google and social media, Jo decided to invest a small amount in online promotion.

'This all worked very well and her business has been flourishing since.

'But after we posted the picture of the faggots dish, we got that Google mail saying they'd taken the content down.

'After going over their content policy, the only thing I could see was that it might have been thought of as obscene, profane, or offensive.

'We thought it might be for the word 'faggots' - which we felt was a bit ironic, as the café anyway is called Fanny's.

'We were more amused by this more than anything else, but we're finding it a little concerning now for what this means for businesses if words are policed.

Ms Evans-Pring, who admits finding the row initially funny, has become infuriated by the decision, saying: 'We were totally sidelined by it, to be honest.

'At first, we found it kind of funny. But ultimately we're both furious by the decision.

'I don't really associate the word 'faggots' with anything offensive, and yet someone has made a decision that's affecting my livelihood.

'Thinking of all the nasty stuff that's on the Internet, why are they wasting their time with Fanny's Rest Stop Café?

'We're just asking - what's the world coming to?'
