It looks as though Kane Slater, noted paedophile (alleged) and drugs afficionado (confirmed) has returned from a 30-day Facebook ban:
Oddly, we didn’t miss him during his absence.
You might recall that back in January we managed to get his YouTube account pulled down, and we wondered at that time whether he’d attempt to resurrect it on another platform.
Sure enough, he’s now moved all his child-abusing, defamatory videos over to Vid.me—all 88 of them.
While most of us are familiar with the complaints process on YouTube, Vid.me is a bit less obvious, so we thought we’d offer some tips and instructions for anyone who’d like to join in reporting Kane Slater’s channel.
Vid.me rules and regs
If one looks hard enough, one will eventually stumble across a page on which Vid.me lists its various no-nos:
From the above, we can see that Vid.me prohibits content which
- “involves children…in a sexually suggestive, violent, or pornographic manner”: We believe that when two small children are forced to recount detailed allegations of alleged sexual abuse, including “licking privates”, “plastic willies”, and anal sex, this constitutes a form of child pornography.
- “promotes information that is false or misleading or promotes…conduct that is threatening, intimidating, obscene, abusive, defamatory, or libelous”: Kane Slater promotes information which has been found by a High Court to be false and misleading. His videos are obscene, defamatory, and libellous toward RD, his children, and the parents, children, teachers, and clergy of Hampstead.
- “poses or creates a privacy or security risk to any person”: Kane Slater’s videos routinely violate the privacy of RD, his children, and the parents, children, teachers, and clergy of Hampstead.
- “harasses or advocates harassment of another person”: Kane Slater’s videos harass multiple individuals, and in many cases he urges others to join him in harassing RD, his children, and the parents, children, teachers, and clergy of Hampstead.
- “violates the privacy rights…of any person or entity”: Kane Slater’s videos routinely violate the privacy rights of RD, his children, and the parents, children, teachers, and clergy of Hampstead.
In addition to Vid.me’s “Prohibited Content”, we also found a list of “Prohibited Activities”:
While we saw fewer definite violations on this list, we believe an argument could be made that Kane Slater is not only violating privacy and anti-harassment laws, but he is also encouraging others to share the videos, thus encouraging them to break the same laws. As well, we think it’s pretty obvious that his videos harm minors.
What to do with all this?
We will be writing Vid.me this weekend, citing the violations given above, and including examples from Kane Slater’s Vid.me channel. We’ll be emphasising that his video channel on YouTube was removed for violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines, and that he has deliberately re-uploaded the same videos onto the Vid.me platform, in the full knowledge that they are illegal and defamatory.
If any of our readers would like to help out, we invite you to use as much (or as little) of the above information as you wish; it’s best to use your own wording, if possible.
It took us a while to find the appropriate contact information, but it by process of elimination, the best email contact address appears to be firstname.lastname@example.org.
All right, you intrepid Hoaxtead Researchers…you know what to do.
