They should have never have uploaded that video about Captain Monochromatic grape flavored tobacco absolutely guaranteeing that it will make you more attractive to the opposite sex! :rofl:

But all the videos showing marijuana smoking and all its iterations are still there. YouTube is also heavily censoring gun channels.

There may be some issue that got adversarial, so we'd have to know more background. However, the various online "providers" like youTube and Facebook have gone in a tailspin about taking some responsibility for their content and, apparently, don't yet know what they're doing, so it is likely to be crazy for some time to come. I believe it is Facebook that has started labeling political messages and is sometimes getting it wrong, reportedly designating a benefit supper at a restaurant that was non-political as a political message. So expect lots of wacky judgement calls all over the place for some time to come. Then the hackers will weigh in and start labeling and/or canceling things, and the fun has just begun. The digital world has reached its adolescence and is in trouble with its IT parents, the police, the government, its consumers, and everyone else.

Another reason to hate Google. The totalitarian censorship of the Big Tech companies...

This thread gives me bruxism, especially since I know I can't say a damned word without it being mislabeled "politics" and being shut down.

Yep, that was the beginning, and now tobacco. Pretty soon, it will be non-conformist opinions. Welcome to 1984.

Agreed. :lol:
I had to maintain my reputation for curmudgeonliness, however.
