Yeah, but that video was totally worth them banning him.

that doesn't make sense, it's a reaction video to his getting the boot. Wasn't B referring to a video that caused the banning?

It's not censorship. Companies can make whatever rules they want and boot whomever they want.

I understand that Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are so widely used that it feels like censorship, but it's not.

I think he's saying that the video of Alex Jones freaking out and yelling "GRAWRRRR" makes the entire ordeal worth it

agree 100%, they're a private enterprise and can do as they like. But it's ethically 100% bogus.

Well it is censorship, it's just not government censorship. Certainly within their rights, but Should they censor, though?

I think they are establishing a precedent, and will use it more frequently in the future. It's concerning that this seemed coordinated as well.

All hail our techno overlords.

They have to right to do what they are doing, just like the NFL has the right to do what they are doing with the anthem protests.

It seems like a bunch of people who so dearly love their private ownership rights and free markets would understand this.
