Great piece. I do have 2 questions.
- Do you worry about the “vulgar language” part of the TOS? That actually strikes me harder than the controversial problem. I watch news channels like Phillip DeFranco’s where he calls us “Beautiful Bastards”. I watch Rooster Teeth where swearing is the norm. I even remember “swears” in a couple Rocket Jump videos (though significantly tamer).
- Do you think that this is just a wide sweeping first move? Some advertisers may not care that their ad shows up of a video that talks about controversial topics. Will Youtube later connect these brands with the correct channels so to keep creators and advertisers balanced?
