YouTube makes changes to combat offensive comments

Google has announced that they are making a number of changes to YouTube comments to combat offensive comments and comment spam.

Offensive comments have been a problem on YouTube in the past, and people will now be warned that their comments have been removed for violating YouTube’s policies.

We are launching a new feature that alerts users when we detect and remove some of their comments for violating our Community Guidelines. Also, if a user continues to leave multiple offensive comments, they may receive a timeout and be temporarily unable to leave comments for up to 24 hours. Our testing has shown that these warnings/timeouts make it less likely that users will post offensive comments again.

This notice will only be available for comments in English at this time, but we hope to see it in other languages ​​in the coming months.

Our goal is to protect contributors from users trying to negatively impact the community through comments, as well as provide more transparency to users whose comments may have been removed due to policy violations, and hopefully help them understand our Community Guidelines. . Of course, our systems don’t always get it right, so users who receive these warnings can provide feedback to help us know if we’ve made a mistake.
