    youtube and firearms

    it has come to my attention that youtube (owned by google) will no longer use advertising on any firearm channels. this will stop allot of people from posting on youtube. bloody do-gooding wankers !

    I don't think it's strictly that simple. Youtube have had to review their advertising policy after it was noticed that advertisers were being associated with videos containing hate speech, encouraging terrorism, etc. This appears to have affected advertising in general.

    Yeah it's real gay and it's not just firearms. A dude called Pewdiepie with a channel of the same name has like 50m+ subscribers - he's a gaming reviewer for goodness sake - had his channel demonetised too. Most of the channels I subscribe to use either Patreon as their revenue earner and / or host their material on Full30.com

    Military Arms Channel
    Iraqveteran8888
    ForgottenWeapons.com
    Polenar Tactical etc etc

    He was making videos containing literal nazi material, unsurprisingly advertisers don't wish to be associated with nazis.

    Youtube's ad setup is fairly shit though & the balance of power is extremely in the hands of youtube as opposed to the content creators

    slightly off topic... if you guys really hate the ads, make sure to use Chrome as your internet browser, then download "AdBlock" and Boom!!! no more ads before or during videos. Ads are gay

    What - you mean the one of him shooting Nazi game characters in the groin? If that makes him a Nazi then I'm going to hell seeing as I've clocked all 6 episodes of Wolfenstein 3D.

    I wasn't aware of that. Just seen it... the look on his face says it all - not quite sure the thought process there. Something get lost in translation lol? Wolf 3D - ahhh... many happy memories.

    I just checked, I have a video of me building a gun cabinet on Youtube. Its still monetized, even though it has the word "gun" in the title. Earned me a whole $12 that one...
