YouTube Heroes controversy
YouTube has decided that they will give users points for flagging videos, as well as give users who the ability to "mass flag" videos.

Quote: Earlier this month, YouTube launched its own social network of sorts with the debut of YouTube Community; now it’s enlisting help from viewers to help moderate it, along with other content on the video-sharing site. The company has announcedthe launch of a new, crowdsourced moderation program called “YouTube Heroes,” which asks volunteers to perform tasks like flagging inappropriate content, adding captions and subtitles, and responding to questions on the YouTube Help forum, among other things.

YouTube says that those who participate will be eligible to receive perks, including access to exclusive workshops and sneak preview product launches, for example.

As of right now, the announcement video has over 150k dislikes. Let's see if YouTube gets the message or continues to be clueless.

I'd bet a thousand bucks that this program, if enacted, will be swarmed by censor-happy SJWs in no time at all. Just like reddit, 4chan, Twitter and Wikipedia.

Don't forget religious people who are offended by atheist videos.

Has anybody flagged it?

It might still be possible to lay an algorithm on top of which subgroups flag which kinds of videos, and how reliable a given person's flags are. I'll watch with interest.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Wow. This might be generating an even bigger backlash than when the Fine Bros tried to copyright the concept of reacting.

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

Censor happy anybody, as well and trolls and your run of the mill assholes. Censorship is not an exclusive tool of the regressive left.

I feel like this will be much more likely than 'those darn SJWs'
