    Just read that YouTube banned but job James Yager. No word as to why yet. I'm thinking he went on another rant. No loss to the world with him off the net.

    I don't know much about him. I've seen a few of his rants, and a couple of his questionable-in-my-mind stunts, then kinda wrote him off. There's a threshold over which I just don't really need to dig deeper to know that I don't need to know more.

  4. On Black Friday he had a video about buying body armor and why we should buy it now. Then there was another about packing your mags, and bags again. I didn't watch either one.
     
  5. Did some research. He isn't on Full30

    Oh goody. Another Glock fanboi I have never watched is now even further from my "care about it" zone of interest...:cool:

  7. He converted to the S&W 2.0 so you can rejoice! S&W lined his pockets with oodles and goo-bobs of cash.

    Didn't pay any attention to him in the first place.

    Keep in mind that while a lot of us didn’t like him or subscribe to his channel, YouTube banned him for having an opinion that they (YouTube) disagreed with.
    YouTube is a privately owned entity and the Second Amendment doesn’t apply here, they have now set a precedent for future bans on guns and gun related channels.

    This isn't really news. YT bans people all the time. It's owners can ban who ever they want. Trying to fight the man there is like trying to fight him here. Your here because they let you.

    The precedent had already been set.

    Yeager is just the most visible. He's a lighting rod.

    Maybe “precedent” isn’t exactly the best word to use, but it does show YouTube’s willingness to ban even very popular channels.
    Not over breaking any rules, but by simply expressing an opinion they don’t agree with.
    I’m not going to miss Yeager, didn’t watch him to start with. But eventually the channels I do subscribe to will be gone also.

    No worries here I watch cat videos. Plus if they do ban enough channels TNT will go nuts. He will not be able to get the latest news on alien probes.

    I'm not sure that we know that. What we know is what Yeager has said. Even he claims that he doesn't know (but that he does know - go figure). He wrote that he was banned for "unknown reasons" and that he's received several "strikes" leading up to the banning. Then he writes that the banning is because YT is trying to "suppress" his message.

    And let's be honest, he's said stuff that should have gotten him in trouble (and sometimes did) such as when he claimed that if Obama did a semi-auto ban, then he (Yeager) would "kill people." I would have banned him too.

    That's possible but it doesn't seem like Yeager's experience is the benchmark.

  20. When a video first comes out is when they get their most views. In a way YT delays the heavy traffic until it becomes stale. Another way to reduce revenue. This is on conservative channels too.

    YT used to have the upload date displayed when offering up suggestions. Not anymore.
