    As many of you have seen YouTube has been deleting a lot of our beloved airgun channels.  What I did is i copied and pasted the video listed below and sent it to Youtube’s Facebook page and Fox News Facebook pages in an effort to bring awareness to what is happening.  I understand that this is just a small gesture but I want to think that if we all do it then it will get some traction.  It would only take a minute to do!!

    It’s funny and I don’t mean in a funny way.  I just went to my YT account and I have many airgun channels and regular powder burner channels that I have subscribed.  What gets me in this not so funny way of funny is that there seems to be no rhyme or reason as to who has been kicked to the curb.  None of my powder burner channels have been eliminated.  None of my “hunting” channels have been deleted, yet some of the most tame airgun channels are gone.  One in particular was about airgun regulators, boom, it’s gone.  Go figure, just funny.  Oh, but I’m not laughing.  My heart goes out to our community and I stand ready to lend my support to get this set right.  Hang in there guys.

    Maybe airgun sounds like AR gun to what ever filter YouTube is using.

    I’ve been noticing this for a while. It started before last valentines day. My issue is very simple. If all the things that I watch are no longer on Youtube, I’ll stop watching it. Not that difficult to do you know. I’d rather not take that step, but it’s definitely headed in that direction. There are a lot of educational and interest things I’ll miss, but oh well.

    I’d send it around to some of the other tech sites & blogs plus maybe CNN and major newspapers. Same places that have covered the Logan Paul issue that started this whole mess. Better chance of getting traction if we send it to more people.

    “baker6483”I’m sorry for asking a dumb and off topic question…  what the hell happened with Logan Paul?

    
He posted a video in a Forrest in Japan (I think?) where people go to kill themselves.  They stumbled across someone who’d done just that and because he had the guy in the background (blurred out) and was shocked but nervously laughing people went off on one and kicked up a stink saying he was laughing at the dead person. Plus how bad it was that the guy was in the vid and barely blocked out.

    The silly thing is you can actually find videos from other people who’ve been there and they have the dead body in clear view, no blurring.  But because they’re not a YouTube ‘sensation’ they are no fun to destroy.

    And fwiw I’m no Logan Paul fan, in fact it was the first thing I’d ever watched but it was clear it was nervous laughter (probably like I’d do if I was there) but what you need to remember is there’s leaches who actually make a living by sensationalising things famous yotubers do.  Put up a video slating Logan Paul if you’re a small timer and you’d probably get 3 times the views (and revenue)

    Makes ‘news’ these days on social media, and other youtubers want to rant about it and then it’s ‘terrible’ when Mrs. Smith hears “Logan Paul was vlogging and laughing at a dead man”. As usual brain dead sheep who are spoon fed half a story and want people or things banned.  Bit like this gun situation on eBay.

    I see…  Yeah I would say that is in poor taste and i can see why that would cause an issue.
