In fact, Ford Fischer (owner of News2Share) reports that his channel was demonitized almost immediately after the announcement, and one of two of his videos were removed.
Before the news about the Purge came on my cell phone (as I left a movie in Woodbridge), I had (at a Starbucks before a movie) seen an NBC story about the trolls at the Internet Research Agency in Russia. I’ve noticed that three of my 16 Blogger entities (Bill Retires, Bill on Major Issues, and Identity Theft) have much higher per-post access counts than the others, and justified by Analytics.
This is disturbing.
Update: June 6 (on "Voxadpocalypse")
The Verge (a Vox imprint) has an article by Elizabeth Lopatto discussing further actions YouTube could consider.
YouTube has a page on advertiser-friendly policies. YouTube says a content creator should voluntarily flag controversial videos for no-ads to keep his channel monetized. That means that a creator would need to create a lot of non-controversial content and earn ad revenue from that to pay for the controversial content.
Again, some of the important policy or news-based independent channels do this for a living (for their owners). I don't. That creates even another set of problems that I have taken up before and will have to revisit again. "Adsense" sometimes won't display ads on Blogger posts with more sensitive topics.
Here are the hate speech policies with examples. Most of them are straightforward. But there can be nit-picky problems. For example, in a real world, transgender-ism has to be recognized as a medical issue before insurance will pay for treatment and surgery, which is what most liberals want. There are a couple of other logical fallacies there if you look for them.
