Yaaaaaay the email nazis like me just a little bit more now.

Google Postmaster Tools lit up green "Compliant" for most categories a couple of months ago when I got DKIM working: SPF/DKIM authentication, From: header alignment, DMARC authentication, Encryption, User-reported spam rate, DNS records.

This week, I have discovered that the "one click unsubscribe" category, which was "Coming soon" until now, has changed to "Compliant". That's good news for me and for Citadel site operators everywhere who use it as a listserv.
"Honor unsubscribe" still shows as "coming soon". And I don't see an "Unsubscribe" button in Gmail for messages from the lists, so I wonder whether that will take additional time.

I'd still prefer to see a diaspora from Gmail. Too many people there which gives them too much nazi power.

In a typical display of hypocrisy, Google's greenhouse gas emissions have surged 50% despite their "carbon neutral" pledge.

To combat this, I am doing my part. I always have my ad blockers turned on, so that Google doesn't have to expend all that extra energy serving ads to my computers.

They will just blame AI farms and then government will crack down on non 'authorized' companies running it.

Looks like YT has got to the point of deleting posts with 'words' in them. Even if within context of the actual video posted. 

 

Not that post often, nor do i leave it up long. But it is annoying.

Didn't realize you could do this, but i turned off my view history so it no longer suggests crap.

But, it also logged out my TV and to get back in it gives you a QR code to some 3rd party place to register and login.. no thanks.    *delete*  ill get videos for my cats elsewhere.   commercials were getting unbearable, and cats lose interest and walk away before they ended

And on that TV box, i'm stuck with the app, as have yet to get a browser to install, so no ad block. It used to be just Android, and worked well, then it got 'upgraded' to 'googleTV' and has sucked ever since.  Its about to go into the trash. The only nice thing is it was also a chromecast.. so wife could stream from her phone, painlessly

I wish Instagram would do that.

That, by itself, would go a long way to making the platform usable again.  What started as a nice photo sharing site turned into "Facebook in square boxes of text".  I'd love to see it turn back.

But deleting relevant comments that are within context of the video, and in these cases just due to a word?

 

One example: video of a car thief dropping a baby off in an underpass on the side walk, then speeding away, after mother was hanging on the door for several miles and finally fell into the road.

While it had more text, the comment was similar to " while that does not excuse his actions, he could have just tossed the baby out the window or killed him like will often happen in these cases"   Instant deletion.    Tried it a different way. Again, gone.  Replaced "killed" with "******" and it stayed. 

I have seen other example of non-bad comments, within context, political statements, but if its against the wrong party, its gone faster than you can blink. If its against the correct party, it stays.   Far too fast for people to be reporting and then being deleted. 

"shoot" is another. You can say it totally out of context of firearms, but the word alone can get it gone.  "well shoot, i didn't think of...." poof.   ( and a variety of other words like that, 2A channels struggle not to be demonetized due to 'words', even from comments and not the video )

I realize its a private company, their house thier rules, bla bla, but it can still piss me off that they use free speech laws to their advantage and make tons of cash and influence people, but don't feel like extending same to thier customers.

I think the "private company" ship sailed long ago with just about everyone in the corporate sphere. Let alone El Goog and their fellow Silicon Valleyites Facefuck, who were created and bankrolled by the military-industrial complex (you know, what we used to call the deep state until everyone decided they loved Big Brother).

Actually i think its also targeting individual people.

Had one instantly hidden a bit ago in a gun channel. It had no trigger words ( pun intended ) nor did it qualify for any other 'rule'.  Oh well.  Rarely commented anyway, so whatever, no loss.

Guess im on yet another list.  lol

Interesting. YT recently let trump back on. i re-subscribed. He was posting videos of his campaign stops. They would show up in my subscription feed as they came out. ( I turned off view history, to reduce tracking so 'home' is now blank, and i dont get those stupid suggestions anymore that would fill the page ) I did a refresh a bit ago to see what was new in subscriptions, all of his vanished from the list, tho still in my notices. They are screwing with stuff again. YMMV of course.

Many legitimate non-controversial videos have been culled by automated filters. You know things are going bad when you cannot talk about industrial accidents or workplace safety because the videos get autoremoved for bad words. Some channels outright stopped producing for Youtube because fighing automoderation was not worth the effort.

Twitch also filters comments for bad words, but in theory a human moderator oversees that in close to real time, so if you mention "The AI of this game is stupid" you'll get the message quarantined and then posted.
