Really? What did these poor souls do before YouTube came along? YouTube is not the town square, it’s a corporately owned platform, and they are well within their rights to set the rules that govern what content they host. In fact, they are required to, by the new laws being enacted to cover copyright infringement, hate speech, troll bots, etc.
The internet is great in that it gives everybody a voice, but it’s also terrible in that it gives every idiot a megaphone to spread misinformation and stupidity. At some point, the company delivering the content has to take some responsibility for what they allow on their platform.
