Not being in YouTue's tech division, I can't copy-paste the code of these algorithms. However, I know that for example Facebook imbues every single photo and video with automatic background tags (that you can see if you pause the pageload or inspect the code) that roughly resemble this:

"Image may contain: 2 people 1 male 20-30 1 female 20-30 sitting nature smiling formal".
(context: this was a photo of me and my wife on our wedding day - quite accurate, isn't it?)

Stuff like this is just the tip of the iceberg that I as a non tech-wiz ordinary used can see - with who knows how many more tags and algorithms deconstructing every single frame in detail - and you're claiming that YouTube can't examine its content in a similar fashion?

According to this agency, a customer support/call center in a developing country containing almost 1000 agents can be had for as little as $10 million per year (compare: Youtube has a revenue of about $10 billion per year. Surely those 1000 agents could take a look at a hundred thousand videos per day, especially videos that have already been examined and tagged by algorithms.

I agree that it's probably not a deliberate plot, but to claim that it's impossible or couldn't be done with even the tiniest bit of effort is simply absurd.
