YouTube is trying to hide extremist videos in a state of limbo


YouTube is still dealing with headaches related to extremist and otherwise hateful videos infesting its site.

Parent company Google’s most recent attempt at a fix addresses content that exists in a sort of gray area — it doesn’t violate the site’s policies per se but it does “contain controversial religious or supremacist content.”

In those cases, the videos will now be relegated to a “limited state,” a purgatory where they’ll be less visible to the casual browser, never appear in automated recommendations, and lose out on features like comments, likes, and suggested videos.
