I respectfully disagree. YouTube provided an open forum and letting people use that for all but clearly illegal things is a good thing in my estimation. One of the greatest things about genuine free speech is that you can hear from even the nuttiest people and make your own judgements. Rather than hear the claims of what a particular person believes, anyone can find out for themselves. Isolating them also means they can't be confronted with a counter argument.

Most importantly, how do we trust the censors? One problem with YouTube, Twitter and Facebook is that a tiny minority--even one person--can block content based on objectively false and/or misleading accusations. This problem is avoided by not bothering with censorship (which doesn't have clear, mostly legal, boundaries.)
