YouTube deletes 500 million comments in fight against ‘Hate Speech’

Published

on

In a blog post, the company said that a “large increase in hate speech removals” had led to the 500 million purged comments — doubling the number of comments that were removed during Q1.

Another 100,000 videos were deleted for hate speech violations, along with 17,000 channels that were terminated also for breaking hate speech rules; both represented a “5x spike” from the prior quarter.

The sharp increase comes after YouTube broadened its hate speech policy in June to block videos “alleging that a group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion based on qualities like age, gender, race, caste, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status.”

 The new rule covered videos that “glorify Nazi ideology, which is inherently discriminatory,” YouTube said, as well as videos denying events like the Holocaust or Sandy Hook Elementary shooting.

The update added to YouTube’s existing policy against hate speech, which banned content promoting violence or hatred against people based on a myriad of factors, including ethnicity, gender identity, immigration status and religion.

Last week, YouTube chief Susan Wojcicki said the site remained dedicated to “openness” — even for “offensive” content — but that it would continue to fight against content that violates its rules.

    Hi there would you mind letting me know which hosting company
    you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet
    browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster
    then most. Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at
    a reasonable price? Cheers, I appreciate it! Hello just wanted to give
    you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be
    running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a format issue
    or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The style and design look great though! Hope
    you get the issue solved soon. Thanks Hey! Someone
    in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I came to check it out.
    I’m definitely loving the information. I’m
    book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers!
    Excellent blog and great style and design. http://cars.com

    Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment
    (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m
    thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but
    I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for first-time blog
    writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    Its like you read my thoughts! You seem to grasp so much about
    this, such as you wrote the ebook in it or something. I believe that you just could do with some p.c.
    to power the message house a little bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog.
    A great read. I will definitely be back.

    After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a
    comment is added I recieve four emails with the exact same comment.
    Is there a way you are able to remove me from that service?
    Thank you!

    My developer is trying to convince me to move tto .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of
    the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to
    another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import aall my wordpress posts ingo it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
