    YouTube should stop recommending garbage videos to users

    https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy...ld-stop-recommending-garbage-videos-to-users/

    Politics ( of course :rolleyes: )
    But also topics like health:
    Want junk? Try Egyptian pyramids or free energy/perpetual motion engines :D

    I've watched auto racing clips and some 'how to' tech videos.
