The Top Ten

1 You get demonetized for having the slightest bit of strong words for not being "advertiser friendly"

Yeah, I've seen a lot of the YouTubers I watch come across this problem. People like Black Critic Guy and Paleostono fell victim to this, so I really hope YouTube makes its policy more lenient on the strong diction most YouTubers use. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Like if you say "attack", "kill", "gun", "die", "hurt", "abuse", "f***", "b****", "s***", "douchebag", "sexy", etc., you get demonetized.

Yet a video of a white child being lynched by an orc gets a free pass on YouTube Red - Ededdneddyfanredux

2 They now censor your political views that don't match theirs

Wow they are just so overprotective. 1984 is coming. - Ededdneddyfanredux

3 The adpocalypse

With a video platform to upload anything, uploading, oh I don't know ISIS RECRUIT VIDEOS, HATE SPEECH TO A PRESIDENT, etc. it's inevitable. No wonder major companies are leaving them. - Ededdneddyfanredux

4 They've demonetized wrestling videos

Since when was an OFFICIAL SPORT violent? It's exercise. - Ededdneddyfanredux

5 The "Trusted Flagger" Program

Formerly YouTube Heroes. You can flag any video you want if it offends you or you disagree in some way. 1984 was a warning, not an instruction manual! - Ededdneddyfanredux

6 They have destroyed people's careers

H3H3 Productions, Vape Nation, the list goes on. It's better to use Patreon for support - Ededdneddyfanredux

7 Thought policing
8 Censoring search results

"When a user searches for sensitive keywords, they will be redirected to a curated playlist of videos that help directly confront and debunk violent extremist messages."

"Thwarting online censorship" my ASS! - Ededdneddyfanredux

9 The closure of Professor Jordan Peterson's YouTube channel and GMail
10 YouTube Kids Cartoons

Thankfully, according to Vailskibum94, YouTube is starting to crack down on this problem. Question is, why haven't they done so sooner? Kids shouldn't be allowed to watch this kind of inappropriate and disturbing content on YouTube. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The Contenders

11 The faulty algorithms.
12 Bringing George Orwell's 1984 closer to reality
