    Oh, Gosh. Hayley McQueen was pretty, Mrs Evans looks really good, and Mandy looks like cold zebra. She's not pretty at all, I'm surprised she's still at MUTV.

    Hayley McQueen and Rachel Riley should host it together. It would be marvellous.

    Sure, he's not the first cnut that Youtube has banned. Almost like they're a private organisation.

    I hope the families of Sandy Hook make the fat chap bankrupt for the added hurt he has caused them.

    Yes. His conspiracy theories were crazy and hurtful to those families coming to terms with the loss of their loved ones.

    He received a strike in July for four videos he posted that violated their terms of service with regards to "child endangerment and hate speech". This lead to a 90 day suspension. He tried to get around the suspension by continuing to stream on another channel. Getting around your suspension is a big no no in Youtube world and he was banned. It happens to loads of people. Youtube have a clearly defined set of rules that need to be followed or you risk banning.

    I'm struggling to give a feck. How do you feel about it?

    I'm assuming he broke some of their rules and I heard they took down some of his videos recently so I'm guessing he didn't heed the warmings. It's not like it's going to stop anyone who wants to listen to his feckries... Meh.

    Absolutely yes - that moron can still get his views heard in plenty of other ways if he wants - the guy said Sandy Hook was a hoax ffs so deserves to be totally ignored.

    Absolutely. He's an actor shilling his crap products.

    A despicable human.

    It wasn't just YouTube. Facebook, Apple and Spotify have all simulatbeously banned Alex Jones and Infowars. Although this topic undoubetdly deserves a separate discussion thread.

    I got into a full blown argument with a guy I'd known for years (American) about it and have not spoken to him since. Guy is a Trump supporter and was totally now on board with Alex Jones mainly because he was such a vocal Trump supporter - I put it to him that AJ was an absolute cretin who was cynically making money of the deaths of innocent people including 9/11, Sandy Hook, etc. all whilst rubbing the grieving familes noses in it and was just a vile human being. He said that he agreed that AJ had done some stuff he didn't agree with but he now agreed with lots of stuff he said (due to Trump) and that it was actually me who was the ignorant fool for listening to mainstream media and accepting it as fact and that I needed to do my research on stuff AJ says.

    It made me incredibly pissed off with him as he became impossible to debate with as everybody knows you can't win an argument with an idiot.

    I reckon all his channels were deleted from YouTube, Facebook, Apple Store & Spotify by Alex Jones Himself in some sort of a false flag operation and Alex Jones along with all the people kicking up a fuss about this are merely crisis actors.

    :lol: Classic flat earther/conspiracy ballbag request.

    They don't actually mean do actual research too because anyone with a critical logical mind will debunk them that way, what they mean by do your own research is 'watch conspiracy videos on YouTube'.

    Isn't it? I just told him that I didn't need any research to know that Alex Jones is an absolute ballbag not worth even a second of my time and I would automatically discount anything he said due to the Sandy Hook nonsense alone.

    He didn't like that.

    Doesn't this legitimise him more in the eyes of his fans?

    These kinds of people always claim the mainstream media etc is shutting them down and censoring them because they speak 'the truth'.

    I honestly couldn't give a crap about that - the man is human excrement and so are all his 'fans' as far as I'm concerned.

    They need to be removed from the limelight and out of the mainstream - people who want that sort of crap can still find it and he will have a following where ever he ends up online but people like him should not be given the kind of mainstream exposure that he has been getting.

    How do people like him gain such a following. His views veer between stupid and massively offensive.

    Only reason he has fans is because he’s been given a platform in the first place.

    Anyone who believes anything he spews doesn’t care for the truth anyway

    He probably still end up on these platforms through his fans and gain traction that way.

    He's been around since before YouTube, YT just gave him a bigger platform but he won't be gone completely and neither will those who are influenced by him who can still use the YouTube to spread them same ideas.

    A bigger platform that led to more shithousery. You can't force people's opinions to change, but the people who want to believe this stuff will find it regardless.
    It doesn't mean that a private company like Youtube has to accommodate them though, as stated in T&Cs upon arrival.

    These conspiracy theorist cnuts should serve as a form of natural selection. If you believe the stuff these morons say, you should be somehow disqualified from participating in society. Perhaps dear old Elon can build a space ship and launch them in to the sun.

    You're right but I think people are making this out to be a bigger victory than it is, Alex Jones hasn't stopped making content and that's the biggest problem.

    Nobody can stop him making content, that's what freedom of speech allows all of us. The victory is that he's not being bankrolled by major social media platforms anymore.

    I would prefer it if platforms such as YouTube, which are effectively monopolies, only banned people for actual crimes but I understand why they don't want to be seen as assisting conspiracy theorists and such.

    I think LiveLeak probably have that policy? Maybe they or some other video sharing site will be able to siphon off some of YouTube's control of the market as YouTube begin to clamp down on fringe elements.

    One of the mods clearly had some of the aforementioned women on their mind when they moved the thread.
