    I subscribe to a channel called Be. Busta he is a horror channel he has just announced that he is quitting youtube. youtube is killing peoples channels i is just so god damn frustrating
    I don't even know what to say like who is to blame here
    google?
    Susan? (referring to the CEO)
    us?

    what is going on youtube is destroying a lot of peoples lively hoods

    I feel so sick cant we put our head together and say NO we will not stand for it is because of us that they are what they are

    I'm gonna tell you all a story and a very personal one two years ago I was suicidal and Youtube played a big part of the healing process and I might have made it but there are some people that are still not well, and if something on youtube is part of their healing process they might not have an alternative so with youtube basically ruining peoples channels could be not helping people get better

    What if, just a though but, what if the YouTuber decided to leave because he doesn't like making videos? You know I used to be into scary stories for like a week or two, then that's it. It's not YouTube's fault at all. That's like saying onions taste gross and blaming it on subway, when it's not that subway made onions taste bad for you forever, it's just your taste buds don't like onions.

    Well, Youtube is a platform for sellouts anyway.

    I really only use YT for quick music ;/

    Well it's not YouTube's fault, it's the advertisers. If you were a business, why would you put your ads on a video about death and scary spooky stories? YouTube is only sucking their dicks because else they'd be sued.

    For the too lazy to watch a whining video what were the reasons given, or reasoning for the exit?

    "I'm gonna tell you all a story and a very personal one two years ago I was suicidal and Youtube played a big part of the healing process"
    While I have absolutely no reason to doubt that, and would happily believe it even had a clinically demonstrable effect I am going to have to query whether it was youtube or the option to do something a bit more free form and creative? I have had plenty of people have life throw them a few curve balls, or just generally get down in the dumps (including in the clinical sense), and gaining the option to build, fix or do something where previously they might not have done much like that did wonders.

    YouTube is only killing channels that are in it for the money. Even then, it's the advertisers pulling their ads.
    If they want to make money, they can make advertiser-friendly content.
    If they want to make videos for people they enjoy, they can do it in their spare time like they were doing before YouTube was netting them cash.
    If they're that desperate, that can start a Patreon like everyone else, anyway.

    Haven't watched the video yet, but apparently a YouTuber is sueing over AdSense.

    Hmm. I don't know. It's not like you can directly blame YouTube. It may just be a personal issue or something.

    YouTube is bending over backwards for the whining, politically correct snowflakes. Even those that aren't that controversial and have shown to be rather center have been targeted.

    Anyway:
