creeping hypocrisy • Youtube bans a video maker because he’s an atheist. Yes, there is more to the story than that, his 67th uploaded video was a slide show containing nothing but sections of the Qu’ran, no commentary. The sections he chose to highlight were shall we say, less then flattering. The video was flagged as inappropriate, which in context is completely ludicrous, (there are FAR more inflammatory items out there to start with) and Youtube retaliated with a scorched earth policy and deleted the videomaker’s account and all his other non-objectionable videos. On the surface this may not seem to be a Biblio related item, but I think it is, the kind of creeping uneven-handed censorship hypocrisy is getting out of hand.
