    "Algorithms are greedy because people are greedy". Don't know why I found that funny.

    All these critisism of youtube videos do is make youtube make unnecessary rules ti hurt small creators.If there was any justice in this world these corporations would not be allowed to get so big in the first place.

    I can see how this would happen. ONCE I clicked on a 3 min interview with a serial killer's daughter. ONCE. Now they're pushing every serial killer vid on me everyday!

    We need a new site that doesn't have these issues and leave the perverts behind for youtube to work their algorithms, push their ads and demonetize anything they don't like. Same with Facebook and sites for people that really do just want to share their lives with their families and friends; without content being pushed on them that they don't know the source and/or the validity. Also, how about they don't sell our data. It's really gross how greed takes over everything. We need to move on to something new until that becomes corrupt and then we need to do it again. I don't use Facebook or Instagram, but I use youtube quite a bit. Ugh!

    TheXvid is a scam, my channel doesn't have any violations & subscribers are growing; youtube play commercials, but I had not seen a penny split in half in two years; youtuber we need to seek legal advice & suit youtube for this abuse & scam, whose with me.

    The one and only good response to this is to start watching and uploading to *Vimeo. EXCLUSIVELY on Vimeo.*
    No one wants to do it, though.

    Actually fox actor was just overreacting yeah he got insulted but I’m pretty sure calling someone a white supremacists are so insulting but you don’t see the whites premises flagging them

    This isn't even the biggest problem with TheXvid. The biggest problem is that the only way it can effectively moderate its platform is to automate it, but we don't have technology available that can effectively distinguish hateful content from content discussing hate. E.G. *DOZENS* of documentaries and history-focused channels are being hit with hate-speech claims because they depict people being hateful, though not endorsing that hate. Videos in support of LGBT rights are getting inaccurately flagged as hateful because the algorithm isn't advanced enough to tell the difference.

    Even deleting watched , liked and favorite vids doesn't affect the recommended stream. Restarting does nothing either. Not for me anyway.

    I literally spent hours one week going through all of the recommended vids TheXvid has in my feed, and hitting Not Interested, Don't Like Video, and Don't Like Channel . If you do it long enough, you'll actually get good stuff, but who the f#$k wants to do that each day?

      No. The obvious corollary to no "hurtful and negative personal comments/videos" is that it is okay to harshly criticize someone for their words and actions.

    Anytime I watch videos from ANY news channel TheXvid gives me pro-Trump ads. President Clickbait must be cashing in bigly.

    I noticed the demographic algorithm too. Ill watch someone in their thirties then i will get other videos by someone in the thrities. If i watch a female fitness video i get more female fitness videos. Same as when i look up male fitness videos. Fitness videos are very obviously gendered. Thats advertising for you.

    As much as the alt right whines about censorship, they are fed viewers. I dont watch anything right wing and that's all that's ever recommended to me, controversy is clicks and money, the smaller channels slip up and admit it in their non scripted videos. It all starts with anti-SJW content

    Idk, I understand what she is saying, but AI doesn't understand. They can only continue to work on it and make it better. Hiring more people wont solve the problem. But that said I will agree with you on the issue of the hate speech, they did take it down finally but the CEO had to get involved.

    I've got a common sense algorithm for you samantha, quit being such an idiot about Tulsi Gabbert. It shows you are completely ignorant about who she is and what she stands for/her policies. It's a disservice to women that you still badmouth Tulsi and seem to still insanely like Hillary Clinton. It's extremely unfortunate you act progressive and love a moderate Republican(Hillary) and massive corporate schill. But hey ratings and advertising are important to your show aren't they. Too bad those things get in the way of sound judgement on Tulsi.

    One thing that is sort of sad is that TheXvid has never really cared about focused harrassment of creators, look no farther than Anita Sarkeesian than to see that TheXvid doesn't enforce its harrassment policy.

    I think it's weird you didn't cover the demonetization of the lgbt community on TheXvid as a whole. TheXvid is a homophobic/transphobic platform.

    This is so funny.... the lady that has a show about mocking everyone who doesn't agree with her points of view and then uploads it to youtube is now mad cause another host mocked someone who agrees with her points of view on youtube, and wants youtube to deplatform that host.... oh the irony

    You have almost 1 milion subscribers on this channel with several millions of views yet you speak of TheXvid in such a distancing and condescending way as old media usually does. Did you forget you ARE on TheXvid ?

    Sam, I love your content.
    I still can't stop noticing the way you squeeze your knees together and crouch -
    It's as if your camera is way too low and you're trying to adjust for the error.

    If Samantha Bee wants TheXvid to enforce the standards equally, they would remove her channel for targeted harassment as well. Equality, y'all!

    I used to get a lot of prejudice recommendations because I liked classical music (because being fond of Claude Debussy is some how bigoted?) so I fixed it by favouriting a load of awesome 70s funk.
