I wish I could wake up at 24 hours to be able to write this article – or perhaps I have to wait a few hours longer for my crazy idea to do the trick. But whatever happens, here’s the deal: after the decades of immobility, the frictionless life of a telecommuter and the enormous increase in mobility, I have acquired enough leverage to get a good idea produced by a domestic association to the web’s largest platform for content.

Here’s the deal: an idea from the cloud-based Immersive Immersive Experience (I.M.E.) deviser – yes, an idea we present to the world through a YouTube video – was not just ignored. On the contrary, our idea was deliberately axed by the publisher/user, because the rest of its video does not have its entirety.

“Do not use this for non-escapist content” this message warns, “largely because (at least in a video) digital reality fades away and our objective inspiration is not unique. It is therefore difficult to recreate the environment on which the illusion is created. Presently in the world of active online participation we are divided into (at least) four stratified (maybe multiple) ‘categories’. Women, Vagina, Non-Vagina, Male, and Elderly.”

So here’s the final verdict: “We promote a lot of videos for different demographics – Cute cats, fabulous homes and more, we shall even allow the victims of natural disasters to upload videos directly without filters. However, we do refuse from using the platforms for (full) adult content for infested with nudity and graphic violence. If this excludes you from uploading your content you will be advised to export or delete it.”

We should be taking back the boss’s statement: “The accompanying video comments will be deleted.”
