Next Month, I Will Be Banned From YouTube

“No videos that provide instructions on making or installing …, ammunition,… or other certain accessories will be allowed.”
See YouTube restricts gun videos
No kidding. Along with shady/dangerous/marginally illegal stuff they want to ban videos of making ammunition. I make ammunition, almost all the centre-fire ammunition I’ve ever fired I made. I teach others about it. YouTube wants to ban that.

I have no idea why that should be banned. It’s not particularly dangerous compared to roller-skating, snowboarding, downhill skiing etc. which are OK in their books. It’s not illegal. One can buy tools and components for reloading at Wal-Mart or Canadian Tire. It’s also a form of recycling hazardous materials and reducing littering as the cartridges and lead bullets may be recycled by ordinary folk. That’s good for the environment. It allows one to make better ammunition at a lower price than what one can buy in stores. Is YouTube against reducing costs and increasing performance? Where would they be without such goals? Using dial-up and static HTML?

Give us a break YouTube or I will ban YouTube. I can do that. I control my router. For what it’s worth, I sent YouTube my feedback…

    Golly, Bob. Why do you think people hate liberals?

    I am disappointed Youtube, they do not listen to us, they only care about money. I want to support my fav Youtubers, therefore I have ad blocker off. Now it is impossible, they will censor more in future.

  4. Deaf Spy says:

    But why, Robert? Don’t you know YouTube and Google were strong supporters of Hillary and they still oppose Trump? You want to fight your own?
    (Google will readily service liberal news and downrank progressive ones)

    YouTube could care less what you think Robert. Just wait though, next it will be banning software instructional videos as that could be deemed to be hacking.
