And of course this is just the current example.
I meant who cares about what he wants to be, I know he's caused some serious damage. Perhaps he should be locked away somewhere.

Seems a lot of people do care, now why is another issue. And I can not answer that.

Questions we ask ourselves are difficult to answer, because if we knew the answer we wouldn't have to ask ourselves the question.

No one seems to care as much as yourself. Congratulations to you for your commitment if you are watching none short videos on it.

I was one of those 31k but my attention only lasted 30 seconds before I wanted to see cat videos, but you stuck it out till the end, when you consider the opportunity cost in terms of lost cat videos, you sir, have commitment to the cause.

31k doesn't seem many anyway, but does it include those who click just to find out what lunatic fringe is responsible?

Exactly! I clicked, watched 30 seconds, then decided I couldn't be arsed to watch a 44min video.

That counts as 1 view. How many of the 31 thousand views watched it to the end?

I didn't even mean that much though. I meant simply clicking on the link to the video. Sometimes I will do that to see who has uploaded the video, what else they may have uploaded and also to discover something about the person who made or presented the video.

You know, someone posts a youtube link, you click on it and then without even starting to watch, a quick google shows a hitherto unknown Tommy Robinson or Lauren Southern and a couple more minutes searching shows sanctions taken against them for hate crimes and/or promoting hate crimes. That tells you not to watch their poison.

But clicking to get to the video page counts as a page view. On a video site is it assumed a page view equals a video viewing?

https://www.bluefountainmedia.com/bl...be-count-views

Views Exceeding 301
The rules change again once your video surpasses 301 views. There is a new algorithm to detect and eliminate fraudulent views. The old refreshing the page method will no longer work. The new algorithm automatically detects and eliminates views from malware and spambots. YouTube's exact security measures are classified. If YouTube's security was public, there would likely be bots and viruses developed to hack into it. It is unclear how YouTube actually audits the view count of videos with over 301 views. If your view count was being tracked from day to day you would potentially notice a fluctuation or freezing of your view count, this could indicate that your views are being validated. If you acquired views fairly, then you have nothing to worry about. However if you used a spambot, malware virus, or bought views from a third party, your views will be deleted and so could your video.
Some signs of a fraudulent view are:

  • The video is reloaded repeatedly
  • The views appear to come from malware viruses
  • The views come from users known to use spambots on their account
  • The video is set to auto-play embedded on a website
It appears that when people like Paulry post videos that automatically play when clicked on, these don't count as views. Only deliberate decisions to play the content count.

Phew, thanks. So I'm not contributing to 'views' when establishing whether something's poisonous then. Good to know.

Yaniv was arrested on Monday after RCMP received a complaint about a prohibited weapon. (Taser) No charges have been laid.

Surely to consider that all 'trans' people, 'people of colour' are automatically wonderful and must never be criticised is also wrong.

Also, at least with those people who are open in their views-----you know 'where you are'. Instead of those with--- what I call 'Anglican vicar syndrome'---who think they should be specially and 'artificially nice' to those who are 'different'!

This is interesting. I think you'll find that quite a lot of people who adopt the "Anglican vicar" persona to mask their true views do so because to be open and honest risks persecution. This explains also why pollsters so often get things wrong and the error is nearly always do do with the numbers of left-leaners being over estimated. It also speaks volumes about how free left leaners feel they are to air their views without fear of persecution from the right versus the other way around ...and what does that tell us about who are the true believers of liberty and free speech?
