The community is concerned that more and more videos containing obscene content will appear on YouTube due to the new policy being introduced.
YouTube can be a little strict when it comes to the type of content it allows on its platform. Over the past few years, the service has banned hundreds of thousands of videos and many creators post content that violates company guidelines. In less severe cases, the company disables video monetization, meaning creators incur financial losses when posting questionable content.

Previously they had to be extremely cautious about YouTube policies, but now they may be a little more breathing knowing that their monetization status will not be in danger due to the relatively minor breaches involved. YouTube guidelines.
However, this policy has caused a lot of controversy from the online community. One said: “So modern that it looks like HBO around the late 1970s. If the video isn’t for kids and their creators and viewers don’t care, then it sounds crazy that YouTube pushes. Using these rules, especially when they focus on America, allows for a lot of swear words just because it is not considered swearing in America ”. And one person said that YouTube should put a warning “This video contains obscene language” as they did with “This video is not for children” so that viewers can avoid it.
