Things YouTube Should Ban

Here is a list of things that should happen to YouTube, for its own good, as it has messed up really bad.

The Top Ten

1 Porn

YouTube is trying their hardest to ban porn, porn is one of the most dangerous things ever invented, it insults sex, YouTube is trying so hard to ban porn, but people, including Shane Dawson, Sam Pepper, Joey Graceffa, Jenna Marbles, Nicki Minaj, etc, are doing and talking about that stuff, twerking, showing off body parts, talking/making jokes and stories about genitals, and while there are people who flag those kinds of videos, there aren't enough doing that, yet they're still there, People need to stop filling their minds with such "stuff", it's a nuisance towards the internet and society, and people are doing that stuff, mainly to make more money, they're greedy. - nelsonerica

What's wrong with porn? Why is an 18 year old legally allowed to watch porn and a 17 year old not? Then, why is a 19 year old allowed and not a 15 year old? Maybe 18 is just a bull, arbitrary number?

The reason why people under 18 aren't allowed to watch porn is because modern cultures have developed into deeming specific things "inappropriate". Like curse words. People have to be "mature" to use and hear (or read) a series of letters because when people are under 18, they're too impressionable and reckless to interpret things by themselves. It's why kids shouldn't know that they were once on the other side of their mother's vagina and why they shouldn't play video games with guns. It's also why they shouldn't read books that involve witchcraft or visit the neighbors, who are African-American and don't go to church.

There's this idiotic perception that the media filters the minds of children any differently than it already does many adults (coming ...more

Porn is not the truth about sex, sex is supposed to be beautiful, it involves love and respect, porn is just ugly and is not loving, it ruins sex and makes us think wrongly about it. - nelsonerica

I do agree that Porn shouldn't be on YouTube, but some people who say "Porn is disgusting and is a disgrace" are hypocrites. The topic of the videos are sex, and if you want a child, you have to do that. (Unless you adopt a child) - Mumbizz01

So kids should be able to see porn because that's how they were made? Flawless logic right there. - Hypercube

Lol all YouTube porn is clickbait anyways

2 Bullying

Bullying is such a harmful thing to do, it's a major problem with the world, it only hurts you and makes you feel bad about yourself.

YouTube is filled with mean comments from bullies, such as "if you don't like the videos? don't watch them".

They're so mean, yet even the YouTubers these days are bullying.

Please just feel good about being yourself, because that's what life's about. - nelsonerica

People get bored and begin to pick on each other for the most stupidest reasons, Once I saw 2 people fighting over cats vs dogs. Opinions, are opinions. There are no right or wrong.

People are one of mother earths most intelligent yet stupid organisms

A Sonic fantard insulted me in the comment section of a The Loud House video because I posted that Lincoln should have been Mario (Lincoln got drawn as Sonic), and the Sonic fantard got pissed off - GumballWatterson

3 Idiotic Vloggers

I know a great deal of vloggers on YouTube such as Tyler Oakley, Danisnotonfire, AmazingPhil, The Anime Man, Einshine, etc. That follow the vlogging purpose of YouTube and also talk about things other than themselves half the time. They are true vloggers and deserve to be on YouTube while holding their title. Yet on the other hand, just because you or other people feel a lot of YouTube is stupid vloggers and you don't like them, doesn't mean YouTube should get rid of them. They bring in money as well as other things. YouTube cannot ban or get rid of a channel because of how many dislikes they get on a video or how many subscribers they lose a day. They have to break a rule YouTube has, etc. for that to happen. As much as your opinion matters and changes things, it is YouTube's decision to either keep or dispose of these people on the website. - trash

They're greedy, the "stupid" vloggers are so greedy and they want to bring in as much money as possible and not respect their fans, YouTube used to be great back then. - nelsonerica

Vlogging was a unique part of YouTube, but now, it's being done mainly by idiots, they are abusing it, and talking smack things on there, they don't care about their fans, they only want money, there's no hope in going on YouTube just to see a bunch of wimps vlogging about such garbage stuff, they can't make friends with anyone because they're horrible, it needs to end - nelsonerica

Define idiot. Because yes some of those blogs be torture

"insert Logan Paul joke here"

4 Copyright Paranoia

YouTube used to be a free site where you can watch and download videos for free without being copyrighted or removed, but since the copyright paranoia started, YouTube is taking down videos, including those that aren't copyrighted, YouTube sucks now. - nelsonerica

Honestly, this has gotten out of hand. Someone could make a video without any sound and an idjit (Yes, idjit. I'm not stupid, I just love Bobby from Supernatural) can come along and make a false claim saying that they used their song, and YouTube will delete the video, or in extreme cases, the person's channel. These idjits are stealing ad revenue, and if your job is being a creator on YouTube, then you won't get your money if someone makes a false claim. YouTube needs to step up their game, or else I'm sure that a lot of the viewers will boycott YouTube and go to Dailymotion or something. I am also pretty sure YouTube wouldn't care since millions of people are on there at a time, and 20,000 people boycotting the website will do nothing. I just hope that my favorite creators get the money they deserve.

How to get a good income from YouTube...
Step 1) Make a fake company
Step 2) Copyright claim random video clips that people use in their videos that aren't yours - nobody knows who made them anyway ('I'm just claiming it for them')...
Step 3) Grab some popcorn, wait and watch when the channel panics, cries and realises that YouTube doesn't care.
Step 4) Profit.
Step 5) Repeat.

YouTube copyrights videos made by the user and uploaded by the user. And they don't go back on copyright.

5 Swearing

I kinda disagree with this one, my dad says he'll never swear and then a few seconds later he'll be playing fallout4 and be swearing at it! My mum, who is actually quite polite says she'll never swear and yet she does it whenever she feels like it.

My point is, you can't STOP swearing. It just happens. And sometimes swear words can be funny depending on what the sentence is, It's the internet. If you don't like swearing, get off it.

You can't just ban swearing. Personally I agree that it's an issue of gamers and bloggers repeating inappropriate language, but you can't just stop it because it is natural for some people and it's a part of their vocabulary. However, I do agree there should be warnings on these videos because kids do watch random videos and it can teach them bad language.

Swearing is everywhere. YouTube would have to ban almost all the videos on YouTube if they banned swearing. They would also delete/ban accounts with true talent and lose money. Less and less people would visit YouTube and soon it would crash. All in all... Swearing is something you cannot get rid of or avoid on the internet. - trash

And it shows you that YouTube isn't good anymore, even sites like DeviantArt still have quality, yet DeviantArt messed up big time, but it's still better than YouTube, which REALLY got messed up to extremes. - nelsonerica

I personally don't like swearing, but it shouldn't be banned from YouTube!

6 Greedy People

That's what YouTube is up to these days, greed, those people need to learn that life isn't all about money, but they don't care, they're gonna get sued one day. - nelsonerica

Fine bros, enough said

But people with money can buy lawyers, but I see your point

7 Advertisements

Advertisements are a way to give people attention, but YouTube is taking them too far, it's full of harmful stuff, violence, porn, drugs, etc, They should be banned. - nelsonerica

Yes! Let's get rid of the way for people to get money! You do realize that doing this would put hundreds out of business, right?

But most of the commercials are really annoying. Especially the ones that say stupid things like ''PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LIKE AND SUBSCRIBE IT WILL REALLY REALLY HELP''

Get Adblock then - wrests

8 People that Say This is Cancer

I agree with this because it's really disrespectful to people who actually have cancer.

9 Anti Bronies

They've gotten worse in October 2017. - Croy987

10 Violence

Lots of videos these days are violent, too violent, they are a bad influence towards kids and adults of all ages, they can ruin your mind and give you the influence to hurt others, some people put weapons on videos, and that's so wrong, people shouldn't look up that stuff. - nelsonerica

You know that there's something that exists known as an "age rating", right? The parents are more to blame for blindly letting them watch this kind of stuff than YouTube. If you played a video game that had violence in it, would you complain? I hope not! - TheYoshiPyro64

Violence ain't bad to me, because in my opinion it's a video game and you can play a video game because it's not our world, it's a form of escapism, why would you want to watch a video gamer if you do not want to immerse yourself into the game. I do admit a lot of YouTubers just play random games that aren't played with any sort of immersion or story. A perfect example of a proper YouTuber, who uses games to let us enjoy ourselves by immersing ourselves in his games is Robbaz. - DJSchollen

I feel like esrb goes nuts with their ratings sometimes, but that doesn't mean that some video games(like sniper elite III) are less violent then Mario games

11 Haters

Haters Gonna Hate

Haha yass

I'm Looking At You Minion Haters😡

12 Undertale Hate Comments
13 Drugs

Drugs are one of the biggest concerns among people, they only hurt their lives by taking drugs, yet drugs are illegal, depending on what type, but many of which we talk about are dangerous. - nelsonerica

Drugs are very harmful to people, so it should not be in videos unless they are like a PSA against drugs or something. - nk_the_epic

Heck yes

14 Minion Haters

If you hate minions don't watch them. I think the language is stupid, but they are the funniest yellow things I've seen - Gusbus

YouTube Please Ban These Bullies And Restore Peace

So to your logic, I Hate Everything is a bully to the minion fans? - TheYoshiPyro64

15 Pewdiepie Pewdiepie Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, better known by his online alias PewDiePie, is a Swedish web-based comedian video producer, and commentary channel. He is best known for his Let's Play commentaries and Vlogs on YouTube. He is known for being the most subscribed-to YouTuber on the website, earning over 60 more.

As much as I don't like his content and I HATE his fanbase with a burning passion, YouTube needs him and other big channels like him to survive.

I don't like his fanbase, even though I don't have anything against him.

I know his YouTube Red show is going to fail miserably.

I'm not a fan but honestly he's not as bad as his haters make him out to be. His fanbase is annoying sure but people honestly overreact to him - Randomator

16 Clickbait

Just make some quality videos and you won't need to clickbait to get views.

I’m looking at you, KidBehindACamera! - railfan99

17 LeafyIsHere LeafyIsHere

All he does is bully kids and add gameplay footage. It's not even funny, and don't even get me started on his fanbase. They are literally spamming "HISS" everywhere! That's not funny either! It's just annoying!

You guys are all nuts. Leafy is not bad. He only has 3% of his videos on kids. And half of them aren't even on YouTube. He deleted half of them because he went to hard on them.

One Of The Most Evil Youtubers Out There

Leafy isn't that bad, it's just oversensitive SJWs that hate him

18 Annoying Comments
19 Charmx

No, charmx is funny, don't ban him


20 Elsagate

These types of videos should definitely get banned, and that's actually one of the things YouTube is currently working on. These videos are targeted at kids, yet they often feature content and situations that are unsuitable for young kids such as violence, kidnapping and abduction, toilet humor, fetishes, and more. - WindWakerFan

Thankfully YouTube has actually been doing something about it lately; they've been deleting horrendous Elsagate channels by the thousands. - Entranced98

Should be number 1 - 445956

Basically, elsagate is the name given to videos with poorly-animated Adobe Flash, claymation or live-action children characters (usually Spiderman or Elsa, latter influencing the name given to this phenomenon.)

The characters usually wind up in vulgar situations involving blood, spiders, syringes, kidnapping, fecal matter, knives, cracking open their skull, etc. - Lunala

21 Trolls

This should be #2. Just right behind porn. Because I heard people badmouth my country my race. by the way I am white. Also I live in Canada. I hate those ignorant American YouTubers that can't take a joke. Instead they post bad stuff about Canada even though they never been to Canada. They also badmouth my country for no reason at all. Their are people saying go kill yourself to other people. I mean that is just wrong and sickening and disgusting.

Trolls = Cancers

While I Do Agree, Saying Cancer Is A Little Offensive To People Who Actually Have Cancer, Not Being Mean, Just Giving Fair Criticism. - JPK

22 Jake Paul Jake Paul Jake Joseph Paul is an American actor and YouTube personality who rose to internet fame on the now-defunct video application Vine. Paul is known for playing the role of Dirk on the Disney Channel series Bizaardvark.
23 Bad Music Videos

This is something that has to do with the music industry itself, not YouTube lol.

Many people are going to hate and disagree with but Justin Beiber is a changed man and his music videos aren't bad...Miley Cyrus changed in a BAD way and NOBODY WATCH WREAKING BALL! - TopTenListmaker

Still caring about Justin Bieber or Miley Cyrus. - GamerBoy

TopTemListmaker Justin Bieber will never be a man.

24 Feminist Frequency

They should add a disclaimer before their videos saying; "The content found in this video is fictional, no actual research was done before the making of this video".

I hate feminists and feminism!

There's a huge misconception about feminism. As Emma Watson said, feminism is NOT synonymous with man-hating. It's great that people are tackling gender issues like this. Please don't hate on feminism.

It's hard for people not to hate on it when the man-haters that consider themselves feminists are the most vocal. - HanSolo69


25 Minecraft Videos

What Minecraft is just another game if your bothered by it then just don't watch or play it

Think about it. Over half of the people on YouTube would lose their jobs, and YouTube would also be impacted (is that a word? )

26 Autism Haters

True, I have autism - Maddox121

Please ban this :( - Gehenna

27 Sam Pepper Sam Pepper

His apology video was a joke and he's a pathetic pile of poop

Just delete his channel already - Th3Zm0nst3r

Seriously? Vloggers? Pewdiepie? I mean, they're not good in any sense of the word, but there are bigger problems out there. You know, like giving your friend PTSD.

He raped so many people, he needs to die.

28 Nightcore

How to make nightcore video:
1) Speed up a song
2) Put it to a higher pitch
3) Slap a picture of an anime girl in the background
Now you have nightcore, enjoy the views, likes, subscriptions and money you got!

See? This is extremely overrated, and mostly nightcore versions of a song gets more attention than their originals. Imagine how their artists feel. Nightcore (aka nightcrap) needs to be banned. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Nightcore has a cool-sounding name, but that’s where the fun ends.

It’s literally sped-up music. I have been able to easily make nightcore in Movie Maker (I tested to see if it works.) Then you slap an anime picture in the background.

ANYONE can make it easily.

This means that any 9 year old kiddie who has the capability of drawing low-quality circle tool Undertale OCs in MS Paint can easily churn out bucketloads of Nightcore music in minutes. - Lunala

29 Bad YouTube Channels

YouTube used to be so great, it was fun and awesome, there were some of the best videos around, Charlie Bit Me, The Sneezing Panda, Chocolate Rain, Numa Numa, Dramatic Chipmunk, Star Wars Kid, and Fred.

Now, it's full of horrible channels that focus primarily on porn, violence and drugs, they aren't even safe to watch.

People are so greedy nowadays and they aren't careful with what they're doing, they don't realize that someday, fans are going to take their money back.

YouTube needs to ban these channels. - nelsonerica

Yeah, YouTube isn't just about funny and wacky videos; they can be about news, blogs, sport, cooking, technology, music and media, making up something known as a GENRE.
Goodness, I don't understand why people are blinded by nostalgia these days. - TheYoshiPyro64

How the hell can you do this? Nothing is 100% good or bad, you can't just ban x and y because they're "bad YouTubers", that's like the admin of this site banning users he doesn't like. - Puga

YouTube was 95% good back then, now, since 2014, it's 95% bad, 10% bad back then and 10% good now.

Full of garbage now. - nelsonerica

Sam pepper anyone?

I agree on banning JCL Kaytwo. He is a troll, he like to call people idiots just because they don't agree with Wikipedia (I am pretty sure we all know that's not a reliable source) or his Stefan-Boltzmann constant calculations when it comes to star figures.

Same thing as copyright paranoia - TopT3ns

By reaction videos, I don't mean the ones such as ones reacting to shock videos and all that. Those are fine. I'm talking about the people like Jinx and Tyrone Magnus who steal other people's content and add nothing to the video that they're "reacting" to. This has been a major problem before the whole Fine Brothers incident.

The Fine Bros really ruined it.

THe Fine Bros's videos were actually in fair use. But yeah, people like Jinx aren't.

What's so wrong about the British? Lots of people in every country is annoying. Plus, lots of the American vloggers are annoying, so if you really aren't keen on a British vlogger, that's fine, but face it dude, YouTube isn't going to be offensive on British and do this.

I'm American, but there's nothing wrong with British vloggers.

What is wrong with British? There just like everyone else! This is just racist, even though I'm Canadian

This is so racist! >:(

39 Prank Channels

Thankfully Youtube has banned the more dangerous types of pranks recently. Along with dangerous challenges too.

95% of "pranks" on YouTube nowadays aren't even pranks! They're just people being dicks! People need to realize that there's a huge difference between a prank and just being a dick. What pains me even more is that most of these "pranks" are staged, but they still feed off of the masses of gullible 12 year olds that flock over to these videos!

MagicofRaht is pretty funny, He's actually a really good guy! He gave money to a homeless guy!

Other than that, Prank Channels are shiet.

99% of prank channels are stupid and/or fake, and run my money hungry douchebags.

45 Finger Family

This song is as annoying as Frozen fandom! This song has been made into THOUSANDS of different versions, such as superheroes, Peppa Pig, Masha the Bear, and of course, Frozen! If you're looking for a channel for kids that doesn't have this so-called "nursery rhyme" uploaded, try out Super Simple Songs. Whenever you can, please flag all of the Finger Family videos out there and block the channels that keep on uploading these stupid videos. They all sing the same lyrics over and over again. But watch out, some of them repeat the song or smash multiple Finger Family videos together into collections! Oh no! This song is instantly becoming the most overrated thing on YouTube for kids aside from toy hunts, toy reviews, surprise egg openings, and toy unboxing videos. I recommend you don't watch any of the Finger Family videos out there now. Why? They're just repetitive and don't ever stop!

This is not what YouTube should be about.

This shows us that YouTube can show unsafe dangerous, and even graphic videos without censorship.
