    As someone with a kid I find this to be great news.  I can't personally be there to approve every video she watches. So, I'm happy Youtube took a "Better safe then sorry" attitude towards restricted mode.

    I see that there's "a" problem, as youtube acknowledged it as such, but... I don't see why this is something to get all riled up over. We're talking about an OPT-IN service. Think about the kinds of people who would actually opt into a service like that. Would anyone like that actually be a significantly targeted audience of the flagged videos? The majority of RT content should be flagged for language alone, because that's the kind of thing that these highly-sensitive opt-in people would want to avoid (or in the case of parents, want their kids to not hear/see).


    Youtube may have some technicalities to work out with their programming, but the mentality behind this "restrictive" mode's existence makes sense to me. As long as its an opt-in service, it's fine. Calling it "censorship" is ridiculous, and spouting off big numbers of "impacted" users is incredibly misleading to anyone who wouldn't understand how the alternative would pan out.

    Youtube should have a say in the content creators upload however I definitely don't think they should make the videos invisible to viewers. It's ultimately the responsibility of the parents/guardians to monitor what their children watch, limiting the platform will only cause trouble for the whole community.

    I am surprised that Youtube actually said something.  Usually they don't say anything about the issues with the platform.

    Gaming is a big one for restricted mode, news and talking about the things going on in the world got hit hard as well.

    LGBTQXYZ, rape, violence, guns, dirty language, and anything with just somebody somewhere didnt want to here that stuff.... well guns and gays got flagged by crybabies that they were offended.

    If you are offended by gays or guns, then just use restrictive mode to not see that and not be offended


    Achievement Hunters 0 vids available... does that mean Restrictions censor gay stuff?


    Welcome to new world order of restricting stuff that ANYONE complains about.

    Guns, Gays, and Games might get restricted, yet some folks censored didnt mind gun channels getting cut down
