If you don’t want a man unhappy politically, don’t give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. --Fahrenheit 451
Tacitus tilts at the algorithmic windmill and seems to be making some headway getting the oddball suggestions turned off.
Tacitus, a grateful Internet thanks you.
Yes, yes I do...
Depends on what you call strange. I watch a lot of strange stuff. Buy yeah it goes fool sometimes & I have to clean out the suggestions just like that guy does.
Deleted all of my videos (cept'n one) Jan 10 2021They hate us.Why let them make money from you ?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hh7PKx5VasDon't say anything about the irony of me posting a Y*utube link.......RumbleRumbleRumble

I avoid YT like the plague..Whenever possible I read instead of watch; I don't like having to sit through insane mutterings, and I read faster than someone can talk.
Weird recommendations. yessir. YT for a while seemed to think I ought to be watching evangelical deconversion vids. "Uhhh, no."Call me paranoid, but it strikes me that control of someone's Youtube feed would be a good way to mess with someone's head. Froth and propaganda for the mass of proles, programming and triggers for the Manchurian Candidate/MKUltra types.Just a thought.
My suggestions have been getting less and less helpful: recent content from my subscriptions gets increasingly crowded out by tangentially-related stuff from random channels, some of which are obvious clickfarms. Then there are recently-watched vids that get repeatedly re-suggested, which kinda points to the algorithm being b0rked.(Watch one chicken-related vid, and the next refresh is 20% chickens. Methinks a flywheel is needed.)
I wish I could blanket remove anything to do with music videos, games, and sports. That would go a long way.
Youtube either thinks I want to continue to watch the same videos over and over again, but this time out of order, or thinks I want to watch the type of videos that the women in this house watch...and I don't. I think their recommendation engine is borked.
