By default it'd mean anyone with less than "X" number of views or who refuse ads.

When Youtube got big and started running ads i kind of thought it'd go this way. Television and radio was once a bit more like youtube ...at least at the local level. anyone remember public access TV? But very quickly the large corps took control of all the air space so that "legitimate" news and "programing" were in their hands.

Youtube and is going the same way.
it's gotten to the point now where if i look for a news story ...even while specifically pluging-in the name of an alternative info site... that the 1st page(s) of videos that pop-up are MSM versions of the story.

AD-pocalypse, Banning channels outright, algorithms that block and suppress certain pages and content and now floating new terms about canceling channels because they are not "commercially viable".

It's not YOU-tube at this point, it's THEIR-tube and they are systematically making sure of it.

Yeah, they've made it very difficult to find any subject in a search that isn't from MSM, their algorithms outright delete many comments, but THIS is just over the top. Yeah, they seem to want to turn YouTube into a different version of Netflix or something, which will likely fail on them.

Having said that, I can understand why they're wanting to make changes. Bandwidth and server space can get pretty expensive, and Google is likely still losing a lot of money on YouTube. I guess I wish they wouldn't have gotten people's hopes up all these years.
