As of this post, monetization SEEMS to be restored on YouTube... but at the cost of a LOT of Foamy episodes.
It doesn't really surprise me, as YouTube has become so much more PC than it was back in 2009 when I started there, so it was basically a situation of cutting off your arm to save the body over there.... at least that's what it felt like.
So for those hangin' in there and supporting... this last 24 hours has been... a bit stressful. Hopefully this is permanent restoration of ad-rev, but it's YouTube. Purple haired goth girls might be next weeks public enemy number 1 .
