In the latest interesting news, one that you may not hear on the media since it “only” involves Christian persecution (and Christians are called to endure persecution and to return a blessing for a curse), Youtube now allows explicitly violent anti-Christian videos to be posted, and also allows support of violence against Christians to be expressed.
This is what happened: I located a user who was posting videos of himself burning the Bible. Some other users expressed praise and support of this behavior. I proceeded to report him according to what used to be the standard safety and abuse guidelines…
The results? Didn’t have to wait a long time. A few days letter I received a series of emails from Youtube called “Action Taken”. What action did they take? See for yourself.
At this point I consider myself fortunate: since apparently these (and other similar videos I reported, which I didn’t mention here for brevity) are not in violation of the community guidelines for safety and abuse (apparently they do not “promote hatred based on factors including religion”), my own account could have potentially been blocked for abusing the reporting tool!!
So there you have it.
