First of all, I'm sorry if this has been posted before, or is against the rules, but i just though the rest of the Pit should know about this. What are your pit dweller's opinion's on this? I personally have no set opinion. I do not think this will work, and Youtube/Google will just laugh at everyone who participated.

I don't understand how a boycott would do anything, because they aren't really relying on us to purchase a product or anything like that, and there will still be millions of people viewing it.

I love the fact they posted a video about boycotting YouTube on YouTube. Also, it's stupid, no-one's going to do it. There are plenty of other things out there to boycott that would have more impact than YouTube...

instead of this boycott, lets learn the cause for CANCER DDD

It's the internet. The internet doesn't have to uniformly agree on free speech. Every website has its own rules and regulations, and if you don't like it, go find some other website. I'm still gonna watch YouTube on the 19th. I don't even watch videos with profanity or sexually suggestive themes; I watch how-to's, tutorials and lessons.

They get paid whenever someone clicks on anything, or watches a video or posts a comment. Their money come from advertisers who pay on a per-hit basis. This would effectively lower their revenue (although most likely insignificantly).

Boo hoo, some 15 year olds who can't get porn to whack off in front of their computer other than some images on google/youtube can't get that now. Youtube doesn't care about you. Do whatever you want just don't ruin it for the rest of us.

Erm, who cares?
I don't choose to watch videos that specifically have swearing or sexual content as their main purpose, this effects me in no way what-so-ever. Kids between the ages of 12 and 16 decide it is now their right to complain about censorship, I doubt they'll have the same views 10 years from now.

Fed up with the internet nowadays, too many people complain.

Homooooooooooooo. Other sites like Youtube will pop up, and then when they get gay, others will after them. This is the internet, if you don't like something about a site, you purchase a domain name and make your own with your own rules.

Now losing net neutrality, THAT is a problem. But I don't want to hijack the thread.

I don't like video bloggers who make a boring, dramatic video with crappy music about how they're onto something. The bloggers I've seen who really had important news were pretty matter of fact about it, which is very appreciated.

Personally I don't have a huge problem with it. It's not like they are removing videos with explicit language, you'll still be able to find them. It's not really censorship exactly because we all have alternatives, it's not like YouTube is a totalitarian government trying to limit "dangerous" information. Even if you see this as censorship, there is plenty you can do about it, like using a rival/upstart service or simply not using YouTube.

I think they get money from us trafficking their websites and thats how they pay for ads and stuff. What we need to do is continuously boycott for it to do anything.
