Continuing its efforts to battle cyber bullying, rude comments, and hate speech, YouTube has announced that it will be taking extra steps, in the form of a new feature.

The new feature, as outlined in YouTube’s blog post, prompts commenters to reconsider their choice of words before publishing them, suggesting its users to “keep comments respectful.” It also directs users to the video platform’s Community Guidelines for a better understanding of what’s considered appropriate. Next, users will be encouraged to “edit” their comments, but they’ll still be able to proceed if they really wish.

Besides this feature, YouTube is also adding a new filter that aims to give creators the option of avoiding hateful comments: creators can hide, approve or report comments without having to read all of the content.
