    This is similar to what happened on YouTube maybe 8 years ago. There would be a innocuous video with a child in it, then comments about the child’s underwire or skirt, those comment came from accounts that had more inappropriate videos and, as the video maker says, within a few clicks there would be an account with soft CP, and comments on the pages about “share and share alike” or “contact me”. You Tube reported this to the FBI and kept the accounts open for the Investigation.
    Pedophiles share videos and pictures and You Tube is a perfect venue for them.

    But I’m not going to watch 2 hour long videos either.

    After The Discovery Of A Pedophile Ring, YouTube Disabled Comments On Some Videos Featuring Children

    A small number of channels can keep comments enabled, but they must actively moderate them.

    YouTube is disabling comments on some videos featuring young children in response to public and advertiser backlash following the discovery of an organized pedophile ring sharing disturbing content on the platform.

    The video-sharing company, which is owned by Google’s parent company Alphabet, said it will no longer allow users to leave comments on videos featuring children 13 and under. It will also disable comments on videos featuring minors between 13 and 18 that YouTube believes have a risk of attracting predatory behavior.

    YouTube’s decision follows the discovery of a network of pedophiles that were using its platform to share and comment on videos of young children dancing and doing gymnastics. The pedophiles then commented on the videos, leaving timestamps and details noting when children were in states of undress or in suggestive positions.

    “We will begin suspending comments on most videos that feature minors, with the exception of a small number of channels that actively moderate their comments and take additional steps to protect children,” a company spokesperson said in a statement Thursday. “We understand that comments are an important way creators build and connect with their audiences, we also know that this is the right thing to do to protect the YouTube community.”

    Media outlets, including BuzzFeed News, and concerned members of the public have long scrutinized YouTube for hosting harmful and exploitative videos, including content that depicted minors in abusive or violent situations, encouraged self-harm, and attracted pedophiles. While YouTube moved to ban only specific channels and users that were uploading or sharing these videos, Thursday’s decision marks the company’s most comprehensive action to date, one that could significantly impact engagement on kids videos and the revenue they generate.
