Tank destroyer and a god
Hahahaha meanwhile I watch Fortnite videos and only get a few recommendations to watch other Fortnite related videos... amongst a list of... irrelevant and annoying videos I have no interest in whatsoever.Same. Half of my recommended videos are Fornite videos because my nephew watched a few videos on my PC like a month ago
Does History affect recommendations? I actually have my turned off. Though, I still get garbage recommendations.Check history and remove them.
When I started to have far too many recomendations, i usually follow the culprit in my history.
I've found it has an effect, but it's slight. When I do it, the videos that are recommended to me and/or appear in my home page are still largely "me", but with some exceptions.Does History affect recommendations? I actually have my turned off. Though, I still get garbage recommendations.
Sometines I click on something out of curiosity and more than a half of my recommendations in YT are about that topic. If that happens I go back and remove those videos from youtube history and everything is OK.Does History affect recommendations? I actually have my turned off.

This is exactly how I see it as well. If the content is not explicitly inappropriate I don't see what Youtube can do about it? You can't control how someone views the content, you can only control the content itself.They should be more concerned with identifying actual child predators instead of hunting down "possible child predators", whatever that's supposed to mean.
There are a lot of words being thrown around that are typically used to describe crimes but there doesn't appear to have been any crimes committed. The exploitation of kids in this manner (by YouTube) is no different that what Disney and Nickelodeon have been doing for decades. Just think about all the "possible child predators" who have watched the mickey mouse club while thinking very inappropriate things, only to have their thoughts interrupted by commercials from major corporations. So corporate funding of child exploitation has been around far longer than YouTube has and if you factor in PBS (here in the states) then public funding of child exploitation has existed for longer than YouTube. Big Bird has been teaching predators how to gain the trust and affection of children for generations.
The thought crime debate rages on.
I did an experiment once involving pornsites in the early 2000s (where I'd be watching such content).Yeah pretty much. The fault isn't really with youtube, but the pedos in the comment section. I don't think it's abnormal to create a brand new google account with no history, watch and click on only one category of videos, and only get recs for what you click/watch. If it's only one subject, then you're not giving the algos much to work with.
You see these videos have 40k+ views, and its likely the majority of those views are from pedos who watch the same content. Therefore, the recs will be more focused than usual. Well, that's my theory. In short, pedos will be pedos.
If this guy thinks this is bad, then he's in for a rude awakening. This is the tip of the tip of the iceberg. The internet is home to some really disturbing stuff.
No kidding, I hate how the recommended videos shown on the right side have nothing to do with that I'm looking at. I'm searching for car related videos and tutorials and such and I get recommendation for the most unrelated things that I don't care about and it really bugs me because I wish it would show some related videos to what I actually watch, which would actually help me. I don't want to see top 10 celebrity awkward moments (or whatever) when I'm looking at turbo shaft play videos.I can't say I've had any of these sorts of videos but I do get wacky recommendations. I miss the old days when it actually gave me good suggestions based on the video I was currently watching.
Now my list of related or recommended videos is full of a garbage.
