Hold on a second there, professor. Force?
Yup. FORCE. My Youtube is no politics, news, or sports. Youtube has done everything short of send a suit to my house to *make* me watch that crap. My
feed is scrambled, if I look at one, ONE random vid which might pique my interest, I am suddenly inundated with everything even vaguely related to
that vid. And when I say vaguely... oh... boy. If a title has 'the' in it, I am swamped with every last video with 'the' in the title. I watched some
random thing, and I suddenly had CNN, CSPAN, ABC, and FOX feeds dumped into my feed- mostly because I was going to 'see every view, and every
opinion', whether I wanted to or not.
Forced is when what you have put together by deleting out a wide range of garbage, and get some nice quality stuff so you can sit down with a snack,
flick down a tad, and find something fun to watch- only to have years of work go right down the turlet with a loud FLUSH. When a random video about a
cell phone review becomes a political slugfest because you happened to click on it, because you're curious about the *phone*, and the next 5 slots are
filled with news, political discourse, financial briefs, and bullshplip. Hell- some of this stuff has me squinting at the screen and wondering *what*
I watched to even get whatever really weird, random thing that Youtube has shoved on there. I have spent the last few days actually saying "How the
hell did I end up with THIS???" after seeing the drek youtube has spat me.
So yeah. Forced. Instead of letting me have the nice, slightly bland Youtube feed I have had for the past 5 years, I am now presented with a backed up
sewer of political nonsense, random stuff you couldn't pay me to watch, just... utter crap, weird conspiracy stuff that makes the shadowy corners of
this site look like Mr. Roger's Neighborhood, and other slop I now have to bail out on a regular basis.
BTW- call me professor, get a lecture. So nyah.
