Akshay Gopal, director of Bizotico, on his unforgettable experiences with modified cars and road trips. My first car My first car was a black Maruti Esteem. It was handed down by my father when I turned 16. I had modified the wheels, added an exhaust, a fancy music system, woofers and underglows.

SAN FRANCISCO: YouTube broadened its anti-harassment policies on Wednesday to include a ban on "implied" threats along with insults based on race, gender identity or sexual orientation. "We will no longer allow content that maliciously insults someone based on protected attributes such as their race, gender expression, or sexual orientation," global head of trust and safety Matt Halprin said in an online post. "This applies to everyone, from private individuals, to YouTube creators, to public officials." YouTube already bans explicit threats, but now "veiled or implied" threats will be barred as well, according to Halprin. "This includes content simulating violence toward an individual or language suggesting physical violence may occur," Halprin said.

The changes stem in part from YouTube's July pledge to crack down on "creator-on-creator harassment," the Washington Post reported. The platform was berated … [Read more...] about YouTube no place for harassment: Streaming platform bans implied threats, racist insults
