RTGame updates on YouTube restricting his channel

As shifty and unethical as YouTube is, it’s still a free platform for creators to use.

If you had to pay to use the service, then I think it’s fair to get pissy about how the content you want to upload is moderated in a hamfisted way.

But as long as it’s free, I argue that YouTube/Alphabet are free to do what they want with the platform. They technically don’t owe us shit.

If your content has legs, it should be able to stand on its own legs. if more creators dumped YT and started hosting their own content again like the early days of the internet, the big monoliths that are currently running the internet could lose a lot of their influence and audience and we could see a far broader internet again.
