“Youtube has denied they changed their policy on advertising after the Youtuber Philip De Franco claimed the website was “censoring” Youtubers by not permitting adverts on certain content they deemed inappropriate…”
I’m just finding the noise of this latest YouTube controversy concerning, that’s all.
Despite what was done to my most active YouTube channel …I don’t wish for YouTube to do anything, that would cause it to crash and burn…I still use the website way too much, to ever want to see it go away.

I have a series to highlight atheist media…so, why not one for MAP media?
I’m going to put all media created by MAPs [Massively Awesome People…’wink’ ‘wink’…’nudge’ ‘nudge’…] in this series…and maybe the rare item of interest, which may not have been created by a confirmed MAP.
…But this is going to be for media created [and/or published] by self identified MAPs.
If you know of any active MAP media creators…please do share.
An Incomplete Archive of Previously Posted Content
To get an idea of what I will feature here, most of what is linked below I would find appropriate for this series. I’m not going to re-post, or re-categorize this content already posted…But I will feature future content from Massively Awesome People [MAPs] in this series, from hence forward.

I’m not giving a review to Suicide Squad…I’ll just say here, that I generally liked the movie…
…This is likely because it delivered what it was supposed to deliver, in a reasonably entertaining way…without getting convoluted by three or more distinct stories getting mashed together, while skimping on the movie’s own premise and namesake…
BvS, aside from the massive sin of failing to deliver a substantive, epic clash between Batman and Superman [which could have filled, and made, the entire movie]…the movie gets hijacked by some sloppy story about Lex Luthor and Doomsday…both of which could have been entire movies, in their own right…They did not need to be there…and it felt like a cheap sidestep…and they blew through so much major storyline, like it was nothing.
Man of Steel was not what it should have been…and then they went and pulled this stunt, as a follow up.
Suicide Squad may have it’s problems…It may feel somewhat different, from the two previous movies…But it stayed focused, and told a generally coherent story.
What kind of gets me…is that the dark atmosphere of BvS, was one of the best elements of the movie…It’s one of the things that they got right…But listening to them, it’s like they think that they have to do away with that, and change one of the things this series had going for it.
The dark atmosphere isn’t the problem…It’s the poor storytelling, and lack of believable behavior…[Someone who wants to kill another person, isn’t going to have a change of heart, because their mothers share the same name!…Nor is he going to act as though he lost an old friend, when said target dies by means other than his own hands!]…
The people in charge of this series need to be put out to pasture…and new people need to be brought in…If they still cannot take a franchise this beloved and make a hit movie from it…it’s time for them to go away, and leave it alone.

WTF YOUTUBE!? ADVERTISER FRIENDLY!?
DEMONETIZED!!! – YouTube vs Free Speech
Let’s talk about the Great YouTube Demonetization act of 2016
Youtube is Censoring content?
This is not total censorship…as these channels continue to exist, and have the ability to create and upload videos…They just cant get advertisement revenue on some of their videos.
Does it suck?…I’m sure it does…But it’s a very different thing from what so many MAPs have experienced with YouTube, throughout the existence of YouTube.
This is some degree of censorship, no doubt…but they still get to freely express themselves on YouTube…
It seems…that content creators are now constrained by a vague notion of “Advertiser Friendly”…So, if they value [or need] the income YouTube is allowing them…then they may not be able to create the style of media they prefer.
…They may have to create politically correct [and even mindless] content…and then use all of their common videos, to ask their audience to go watch the monetized videos [“after watching this one”]…Sounds like such a pain.
See…this is amongst the various reasons, why I’ve never even considered trying to make a profit off of anything I do online…Someone will throw a monkey wrench into the setup, eventually…even if you’re being professional.
You cannot honestly talk about the issues which are most important to you…and expect to be financially rewarded for it…In fact, if it’s controversial…you should expect to only lose money…If the social issues are important enough…then it will never be about “this is my job and income”.
As to YouTube…this is one of the dangers of becoming too mainstream, which so many of us hate to see happen…They’re pandering more and more, to the people who put out generic, shallow and politically correct content…while penalizing those who do not [many of whom have something important to say, and an audience that watches]…regardless of the views they are gaining YouTube.
I think this was on the horizon, for quite a while.
…I’m very sad to see it…But being someone who’s been burned by YouTube in the past…I don’t expect anything better out of YouTube…

“All of us have “multiple sexual orientations … across a variety of different dimensions.”
Seto’s research has long focused on sexuality, especially the psychology of sex offenders and of pedophiles. In his latest paper, published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, Seto returns to and expands upon “the idea that pedophilia, a sexual interest in prepubescent children, can be considered a sexual orientation for age, in conjunction with the much more widely acknowledged and discussed sexual orientation for gender.”
