I mean, the old Civil War was pretty successful. Not too surprising that they made another one.

Apparently on Youtube you can't put kid's content on your Watch Later list or any other. Why?

Don't know the specifics, but Youtube made some changes to how stuff flagged as kid's content is treated not too long ago. If you watch it on a phone or tablet then it won't play kid's content in the miniplayer mode either.

Might be something to do with the flak they've been getting for letting shitty content keep getting highly recommended by the Youtube Kids algorithm.

The core point is that the entire thing people are asking for isn't viable. We want to upload whatever videos we want, instantly, no restrictions, yet somehow have everything perfectly moderated, for free. And we don't want the channels we like to ever get any content strikes, only the channels we don't like. The concept just doesn't work. It's a crazy thing to expect anything like that to work. Either they're too draconian and people get pissed that their favorite channel or videos got taken down and/or they're too lenient and they should dalek-exterminate all the channels we don't like in a hail of fire. At the same time.

People aren't willing to pay what it would cost for human moderation for Youtube. The same people who generally say "youtube should do something about all this bad content" also tend to go "oh hell no" to the idea that they should, for example, have more adverts to pay for something like that. The reason it works for broadcast TV is that everything is curated and from known sources. Something where people just upload "whatever" can't possible by cleaned up to broadcast TV levels of sanitization without forcing people to pay a lot more for the service, one way or the other. The only way it would be viable is if they end up with only "approved channels" and have a very low bar for striking out and getting your channel canceled.

I hope Youtube does less about 'bad content' because it inevitably means massive overreaching bans and removals of videos.

Yeah, it turns out that companies like Google/Alphabet have political and social beliefs that boil down to "fuck the non-rich, give corporations more money" and letting them choose good and bad content turns out not the way you'd like.

But my child found a video of Dr Robotnik shouting PINGAS over and over!  PINGAS!  Can you imagine! How terrible!

And an MSNBC reporter probably just lost her job because she started to say "Knicks", then corrected herself into "Lakers" at the worst possible moment.

What does this have to do with a Watch Later list, though?

Got a new chair. Cat immediately vomited on it. Looks like it's time to break out the aluminum foil again.

...  Well, I guess you got the cat's opinion on your new chair.
