So youtube is cracking down on videos with profanity and sexual content by automatically demoting them. Users are calling for a blackout starting Dec. 19th on youtube and all sites affiliated with youtube.

edit: for a better explaination (I hope)

When you go on youtube and see the 'featured' 'currently watched' or 'promoted video' after December 19th any videos with excessive profanity or sexual content will not show up in these sections. I don't think they will all be removed, but if you want to see them you will have to search for them.

I really don't understand this. Youtube make you sign up and verify your age to watch videos with swearing and adult content in and then they go ahead and say they're going to remove all videos with swearing and adult content? If you ask me, it seems kind of pointless.
