Model making is not a crime!
« on: September 10, 2019, 05:52:23 PM »
Had a video banned back in June under YouTube's hate speech policy. Some kind soul wrote a piece about it...

basically extreme guidelines probably associated with aggressive but not properly developed software... you do not know how many comments to blog I had removed because they were 'spam' when I was only commenting on the poster (usually about models or wargames!). I had a comment removed twice and  I was pointing out a wrong identification on a AFV in a picture...

It is like the weird decision spam filters does. I had a mail from RMAS War Studies ending in the  spam folder .... go figure....

Where?

Itís a reasonable discussion of the unreasonable repression of YouTube. Nothing more.

This was posted all over the Bolt action facebook page...by the guy who it affected. And he was told to go elsewhere there as well.

At the end of the day, youtube are a private company and free to do as they wish within their own company (within reason) if that includes kicking people for what they deem hate speech thats up to them.

Seems like a problem with their new software.  If some one complains about their reject it should be reviewed and analyzed to improve the screening. Granted it might take some time to be allowed but it shouldn't have been dismissed out of hand.

Maybe I am missing something. The title to me is inflamatory and misleading, perhaps deliberately so, perhaps not. The alleged ban has nothing to do with the criminality of modelling. It appears to be about broadcasting the "politics" and perceived hatreds of the various factions.

A computer programme created by humans failed to do its job.

News at 11.

I must agree that this verges into politics - and with the above poster's comments on questionable thread titling.

This is what it looks like to me. The article clearly states the video included speeches by Oswald Mosely, head of the British Union of Fascists. The niceties of the context in which these recordings were used aside (which might be laughed at in a game setting), perhaps YouTube didn't want their platform to be used for broadcasting fascist propaganda!
