Urbanremo YouTube shutdown

Post by RoMoney »

I saw this covered a bit by some other Cannabis community people on YouTube such as BC Bubbleman and Dr Denz, but I didn't see any coverage in the mainstream cannabis media. Any idea why? Also any idea how they shut him down since he's legit and just sells nutrients?

YouTube are on some kind of cleansing mission it seems. I feel for the content creators they’ve all put a lot of work in and it must really hurt to see tha go down the pan.

I feel especially bad for those just doing ‘community’ vids rather than using YouTube as a platform to launch a product.

But on the flip side of that - I can definitely see why YouTube would want to censor this type of content. There are lots of very young people making a decent amount of money from making videos essentially (sometimes seriously) overindulging in cannabis consumption. While that doesn’t offend me particularly - I can see why some would find it a bit crass.

Cannabis isn’t legal yet and YouTube is a private enterprise. Which is kind of the end of the debate really.

Shame but little surprise imo

Urbanremo, (along with a few others) were sutdown because YT accuse them of spamming.
I think they have looked at what Reddit did with its dark web forums ( delete most of them ) and started to take action before the authorities told them to.
This sucks but not surprising they did it.

Censorship on the interweb in this day and age, it's 2018 FFS

Somewhat off topic, but im Going to miss the crazy Salvia videos too.

Guess we will have to settle for videos of drunks doing drunk things or are they gone too?

I think drunks smashing things up is still considered wholesome entertainment

If you top and tail it with an arrest and smug commentary from a b-list celeb it’s mainstream media ready baby.

Well, youtube&google is the same thing, so is their PC agenda, cleaning the internet and excluding some pages from being searched. Next time on Congress, it's google CEO not zuckerberg;)

Was gutted about Andrew Pyrah, his videos made my first trip, and watching them always brought back that sense of pure excitement and anticipation one feels when planning their first jaunt into town.
