    Exactly. In their zeal to appease the advertisers they will be losing out on "eyeballs" as people who watch the "restricted" category will continue to do so but YouTube will not gain revenue from it either and only incur a cost.

    With people cutting the cord more and more online advertising is becoming more important to advertisers. I don't know if online advertising has surpassed "traditional" advertising but it will at some point. At that point I would think YouTube would be able to dictate to the advertisers and not the other way around.

    And if you look at the bigger picture, gun channels aren't the only ones being demonetized. Right wing/conservative/alternative news are getting the same treatment. Its the start of mass censorship. It goes hand in hand with these new speech laws Canada is trying to implement. Control what you see, what you say, what you do. We live in exciting times.....

    Too bad firearms and equipment manufacturers don't advertise on youtube.. but that would probably give Larry and Sergey nightmares. Imagine the difference if Google had been founded in Texas by Texans..
    I don't have a firearms problem; they all work perfectly well.

    Can't see it being that long till one of the big's like Brownells, Midway, GunBroker, drop dime and buy some server space. That or some smart person with a bit of cash who wants a juicy return.

    AdBlocker doesn't block everything.

    AdBlocker Plus blocks every ad on YouTube, I haven't seen an ad in years.

    Full30.com is an awesome source for most of the well known gun channels, and is a safe space for gun channels. It's not so well known as YouTube of course, but it's awesome.
