Okay I have been "shadowbanned" or "ghostbanned" by Youtube. I noticed this when, I found a conspiratard's video, and posted some science on it. The video was posted by some dumb redneck who was using poor logic and reasoning abilities, and I, rather politely, told him what his flaws were. (I did not even call him a dumb redneck, I did not use foul language either.) But I logged out and came back to the video, my comment was not there. It was like Youtube was censoring my science. So I asked, why would Youtube censor comments such as this? Because the video was criticizing Google, which was an affiliate of Youtube. And my comment was actually defending Google's good name. So why would they censor me, I thought? Because the censorship was part of some seperate agenda. They want conspiratards to have a free say, so people who believe in rational conspiracies will look bad. Anyone who believes in something rational will be silenced, but people who believe in irrational stuff will have free reign. In any case, shadowbanning in of itself is inherently orwellian. Because I tried 3 other youtube accounts and still could not post. Its so nefarious and dishonest, like they trick you into believing you can post but you cannot. The post shows up on your screen, but noone elses. And they do not give a reasoning or notification of why you are banned. How would you like it if, police could throw you in jail, but not give a reasoning or trial as to the reasoning behind it? The police could just throw you in jail willy nilly, because they were having a bad mood one day, or didn't like the way you looked. And this is what Youtube is. Take it a step further, what if random people could throw you in jail, and a robot, AI judge determines your fate? Take it one more step further, you don't get notified you are in jail, instead, you are trapped inside a virtual reality like the Matrix, and don't even know you are isolated. But you start to notice because, noone ever listens or responds to a word you say, you are a "ghost".
