Banned From YouTube
« on: February 22, 2018, 03:07:20 AM »
Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that my channel "Edgun West" has been terminated by Youtube because they stated I violated their "Community Guidelines".  They feel airguns are dangerous and I can only guess because I taught people how to modify and work on airguns they deemed this "harmful to minors."  I appealed this decision, but I was unable to get Youtube to change their mind.  I have been banned from emailing them again.  I am not going to let me stop making videos or sharing them.  I started this just having fun, and I was encouraged by Ernest to make DIY videos.  This passion eventually led me to import the gun I love above all others "the EDgun".  If I stop making videos, it will change my whole business model.  I know my videos are wordy and not polished ( I envy Steve's and Matt's professional editing) but I like making no-frills videos.  I hope me going to a new hosting service won't prevent people from seeing my videos, but I am left without another option. 

Here is my replaced video for the R5 .30, and as I stated before, there will be more in the series

Thanks for understanding 
Brian

That is absolutely silly.  With all the blatant harmful content that can be found on youtube, I can't even attempt to follow the logic on that decision. 

A million videos of 18 year old half-wits loading shotgun shells with nails, etc. and shooting cars, and responsible hobbyists and airgun maintenance is where they make a stand?  I'd sign a petition if that would help.

It's PC trolling by social progressives against anything / anyone  they don't like; i.e. conservatives, hunting, airguns, firearms, pest control..  The list is too great to go into here.

It is really a shame for as they lessen our 1st amendment and 2nd amendment rights they are undermining their own.  By the time they wake up it will be too late.

This is quickly becoming a huge issue with anyone that does not agree with the views of the persons that review the videos. I have had several videos removed as of late that have been on there for more than 11 years without issues until the last year. There were no reasons given other than "we have deemed that this video violates our community guidelines", their blanket statement that covers them legally. It is saddening that in order to push their own agenda or ideals they silence others. I will leave it at that so as to not bring up a political conversation.

Disheartened that this is happening to you as well. Time to find another platform I suppose.

The GTA channel is perfect for air gun related videos. However, Most of my videos were taken overseas. Although there is no blood or gore and such, they often get flagged by "yuppies". Seriously thinking about deleting my whole channel.

Probably selective shutting down the little guy. If they shut down the bigger channels it is to noticeable.

Totally in their worldview to shut down speech from the other side- force their version of morality on the other side.

Youtube shut Umarex USA's channel down, and their lawyers had them back up that afternoon.

the real issue is what these"Community Standards" are, and theyve NEVER repsonded to my request for an accurate definition. They blamed the "algorithm" for the shutdown of many channels......

Although it is a privately owned channel, It doesn't make any sense at all for YT to attempt to shoot themselves or others in the foot by trying to take away our rights.  YT is obviously clueless as to what they think they are doing.  There is far more harmful content to society on YT that is uncensored than a fella showing others his pellet gun and how to service it.

I really like this new Vimeo channel.  So far it doesn't have all of the annoying popup ads like YT has.  The last thing I would do is subscribe to the YT  "Red Tube" paid channel.  That would just be supporting the progressives/clueless.

They always blame an "algorithm" for shutting down non-liberal speech. As much as I hate to see the government get involved in anything other than building roads & national defense, these social media companies have had it coming for a long time. They made their beds & totally deserve it.

My channel is back but it never fully recovered from the beating I took from Google.  There was nothing on that channel that was offensive.  At the time I was banned I didn't even have hunting videos.  The problem is we don't own any content.  A big company owns everything on the internet. Also, this website could shut down if that hosts it wanted to kill it.  Google is impressive, it has changed humanity and how we communicate with each other.  The vast amount of information located on the YouTube servers is beyond imagination.  Google has a moral responsibility to keep that information free and open.  They are approaching public utility status, and one day the power for them to decide content may be taken from them.  I know it is their house but the content providers are renters, and we all know evictions have to be fair and equitable for all occupants

There's been talk in Congress about regulating them like a utility, which makes sense.  The internet and companies of this type are a method of communication, just as our electric company is our way to get electricity, and they cannot refuse to service certain customers just because they don't like those customers' political positions, what they're doing with the electricity, etc..

real.video / https://www.brighteon.com/ is very gun-friendly.  If I were starting a video channel, I'd put it there.
