YouTube reveals how it will punish creators’ ‘egregious actions’

So, how bad does a stunt have to be to compel YouTube to hand out that kind of punishment? YouTube VP Ariel Bardin said in the post that a “heinous prank where people are traumatized” and anything that “promotes violence or hate toward a group, demonstrates cruelty or sensationalizes the pain of others in an attempt to gain views or subscribers” are good candidates. He admitted that the YouTube team felt they addressed those kinds of videos pretty slowly in the past. These new policies will help them make decisions more quickly and efficiently. – Mariella Moon, Engadget
