    The tools used to screen such [sexually explicit] comments, volunteer moderators told the BBC, haven’t been working properly for over a year, allowing between 50,000 and 100,000 “predatory” accounts to remain on YouTube.

    That's not disturbing at all. I mean it's not like Youtube is part of one of the biggest companies in the world, and could easily afford to fix an issue like this, right?

    Besides, as highlighted elsewhere, Youtube quickly claimed this was a tiny problem, whereas even just a quick search shows that this is an issue across a ton of accounts, and with a looooot more videos than the 150,000 they've deleted so far. If these accounts are able to programmatically make dozens of new videos a week (or a day), this feels like mopping up the ocean. Of shit.

    Silicon Valley companies: "our product(s) will make the world a better place!"

    IRL: Putinbots spreading lies on social media, companies selling you DRMed juice packs and a rise in teen suicides partly caused by excessive Facebook usage.

      a rise in teen suicides partly caused by excessive Facebook usage.

      I read something along those lines the other day and was surprised, I would have figured depression would cause one to be on social media more, but the relationship seems to go the other way.
