Hello everyone, I am sorry I am straying from my usual route of just playing games or talking about Pokemon. But these things needed to be talked about, whether they came across to you the same way it did for me. Doesn't matter, people need to see what has become of this platform and what it will continue to be if it goes down this route.

Details the affects Coppa will have on content creators worldwide and their freedom to express themselves online

Youtube:
Markiplier - Gaming Youtuber
Explains how upset he is about the fact that the "Machine Learning" algorithm is getting rid of and striking his viewers as they use emotes to vote live on his streams.

The truth of the matter is, even though we are aware Coporate Censorship is here, there is no true way to combat it. At least not without activism and with the best intentions regarding less regluations but rather innovative solutions to companies that suppress this speech every year on a constant basis.

THIS HAS TO END NOW

One way we can do this is by having our constituents in government pass laws that will restrict/boycott these tech giants from lobbying since most of these politicians loyalties relies most heavily on the corporation and their reach to every content creator's news/reviews/commentary

There has to be a law that will not regulate these companies out of business but still retain people's right to freedom of expression online. We must have dialogue and we must combat this flagrant and defamatory practice on both levels
