This is from a chess channel I often view, by agadmator:

it seems that a bot in interpreting the use of the words black and white on a chess channel and coming up with the determinations that "community guidelines" have been broken! The video is there if needed but basically it's because chess game descriptions include phrases when taken out of context could sound derogatory. The example he speculated on was something like this........"If black continues on this attack white will always be better" etc etc.....Must we now abandon completely the use of the words "black" and "white"? How neurotic are we getting when we have Bots summarily censoring? Unbelievable!

He doesn't know why his video was taken down (they never explain) and speculates on 3 possible reasons. He doesn't dismiss any of them nor confirm any of them. Apologise.

More doing it on the cheap than neurotic.

Board games matter.
It would be impossible for the designers of the system to consider every scenario and unfortunately, this got caught in the process.

Yes, these bots have a chequered history.
bots can't get neurotic.

"bots can't get neurotic. " - who said they could?
Question Author
so many believe that driverless cars are possible but we can't even program a bot to enforce "community guidelines"! PMSL!
"How neurotic are we getting when we have Bots summarily censoring?"
maybe I misunderstood your question. Did you mean how neurotic can you get when a bot summariuly censors? If so, clearly a lot
Godwin's law as applied to TTT: the probability that any conversation will eventually arrive at driverless cars increases as the number of posts increases.
ps bots also can't take "context" into account. They see things in black and white (lol)

bednobs, the sentence is quite clear: "How neurotic are we getting when we have Bots summarily censoring? " - Youtube, in this case, have made the determination of what to censor automatically based on no context or evaluation. That is a very flawed approach and they are supposed to be in IT.
Question Author
"ps bots also can't take "context" into account. They see things in black and white (lol) " - well they can apply rules of speech a bit like the grammar checkers do but they are limited. Surely the bots should place the video on a list for a human to check rather than automatically taking it down with a black mark against the poster.
I don't see how you expect an automatic approach to be nuanced and be aware of context?
Question Author
I don't, read my 10:31 post.
sorry cross posted.
I guess the old "if you don't like the way Ytube do it, find another site" works here?
Question Author
it's not about that, it's more creeping dystopia from the LibFacs that's the point here.
Question Author
....and before you say it, youtube are not the Libfacs but they are compelled by the current media fashion of assuming almost everything is offending Liberal sensibilities.
Why don't we just ban the words 'black' and 'white'? That'll sort it.
Question Author
we could use the heraldry tinctures, sable and argent!
my main point is how can this be considered news? 1 video which I can only describe nicely as "minority" gets taken down from a site by an automatic bot. Hold the front page.
Question Author
"my main point is how can this be considered news? "
ah nobs, I wondered when someone was going to play that one! It's news because it's recent and it's on a topic that is in the news a lot recently.
