Top 10 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

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 from America, a good example is the mainstream media's coverage of the current presidential election). They think if a child likes a game with guns in it, that they'll grow up to like shooting people with guns, when there's no data or logic to support this. They may think that if their parent is a power-hungry, abusive ass, then the child will also become a power-hungry, abusive ass, but if the child isn't manipulated and pressured into favoring a specific mindset, the child may just as likely choose that they dislike abuse, or meanness, or violence, or guns.

Manipulating is exactly what happens when people punish children for making their hands into the shape of a gun at school and saying "pew." Manipulating is restricting the use of profanity or the watching of pornography, and, in correspondence, shaming masturbation (wonder why the teenager doesn't feel comfortable about getting caught wacking? ) and the expression of sexual tension.

There is no reason why sex would be disgusting, or why... more

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.

Bullies is not a good thing for it teaches the children the wrong message and the victims usually become suicidal or suffer from PTSD.

3 Clickbait

As a result of monetization, YT videos are no longer expressions of whatever posters wants to show or make, but are designed only to get as many clicks as possible. The sad truth is that the ads on YT do not only spoil the channel but also its content.

Me: ooh! This looks like a pretty interesting video (judging by the thumbnail and title)
Video: *plays Never Gonna Give You Up*
Me: why you little-

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

4 Criminal Activity
5 Idiotic Vloggers

Vloggers are stupid anyway, we don't need to follow people's lives at all. Honestly the only reason I would use Vlog is in a film style to perhaps create a very interesting story. Vlogging is a silly concept because in all truth why do we need to follow someone's life, I don't care if you've gone shopping or what you are eating, I think Vlogs should be for adventure, like being in another country. Do a Vlog of that and it has more appeal than just everyday life.

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

6 Violence

I believe that crimes against animals should be considered an act of terrorism. A lot of people even use live kittens for shark bait, and some use their dogs to kill cats. Some people even film small cats being killed by monkeys, and they could've saved the poor little cats from the brutal deaths. YouTube has the ability to report these videos to the police but they would rather just go ahead and do nothing. YouTube employees should face criminal charges on the videos that they allow to keep, and I believe that they influence the animal abuse and graphic videos of animals being murdered by people. Animals are living beings like humans, and their deaths in the wild should never be recorded. I would rather save a cat or rabbit than a person because people are horrible. YouTube is so evil and I won't stop fighting for the rights of animals. Animals are used as cattle should not be abused too.

7 Advertisements

It'd be a bit harmful to the economy if YouTube completely got rid of ads as ads are how a lot of businesses stay afloat. But we need less ads as YouTube on my school Chromebook is extremely laggy.

In 2120 I hope advertising will be a crime. It is just as unethical and dangerous as political propaganda. I hope for a world where you can ask for information when you want to buy something - and all advertising outside that is considered pollution.

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.

8 Alt-Right

Alt-right has the right to exist like anyone, but YT is actively propagating it and shoving it forwards in the impressions. Disgusting

9 Swearing

Really? It's fine if you don't like swearing, but you have to accept that it's literally everywhere on YouTube. YouTube is meant to be a place where people can see videos, but not just little children. There are many older people who need information and entertainment, too, and it often isn't suitable for children. There is mature content everywhere on YouTube. It's everywhere in the WORLD as well, like on TV, movies, books, and all. There is lots of content for children, too, but still. The responsible thing parents should do for their children is turn on Restricted Mode or keep track of what they're watching.

10 Greedy People

Okay, I'm going to give you an example of a greedy YouTuber. Aparri. I'm sure you don't know who Aparri is and I surely hope you don't. If you watch his videos, you'd think he isn't that much of a greedy guy. But lets point this out for you.

*He is obsessed with a game called ''Animal Jam''
*He will never reply to your comments even if you are crying telling him to
*He hacks and tricks others
*He will not sign your autograph unless you give him stuff
*He doesn't ask you to subscribe, he commands you to. And he doesn't even say thank you.
*He treats his fans like slaves to give him stuff
*All he cares about is money and stuff people give him and if he doesn't like it he will discard it in front of them

I'm not joking. Aparri is one of those YouTubers you can call selfish, and if there is another YouTuber that acts similar to this, they can be called selfish too. But most YouTubers only care about money now which totally sucks I think it needs to be banned

The Contenders
11 Copyright Paranoia

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.

12 Haters

Personally, I think hating something is okay, as long as you don't go around bashing the fans of it.
Unless if it's stuff like murderers, rapists, etc. Those stuff truly deserve to be hated.

Hate leads to suffering. Seriously, they already suffered a lot.

13 Harassment
14 Quantum TV
15 Spambots
16 Conspiracy Theories
17 Spam Comments

^ average intelligence of YouTube comments.

Every time you comment something on YouTube they will comment you

18 Trolls
19 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.

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

20 Children Under 12
21 Pewdiepie Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg (born October 24, 1989), 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... read more

He has more subscribers than YouTube itself and he cannot control his swearing, which is bad for kids ages 8-12 that watch YouTube a lot. Yet, he is enough to get more than 40 million subscribers? Nothing makes sense when it comes to YouTube, but it IS something I watch every day... What I'm TRYING to say is that PewDiePie has too many subscribers and he is too popular.

P.S. His intro is very annoying.

Seriously? I get it, Pewds has annonying fanbase, he's a disease to us all, etc. but banning him? Are we acting like children over a popular YouTuber who has, admittedly, dropped in content quality. Banning him when he has done nothing wrong, his fans maybe, but not him.

22 Annoying Comments

Everyone and everybody has the right to voice their opinion and people should leave at that. Who cares about what they say. We have rights to speak out and be honest and respectful of it.

23 Unfair Copyright Claims

Imagine if an individual user rather than a legit company flagged your video for a DMCA takedown? That's not legal by any means. NintendoGamingHD has done it to VideoGamePhenom multiple times.

I'm tired of uploading a video and getting a copyright notice five minutes later.

This is already on the list, called "Copyright Paranoia".
