Curse YouTube recommendations

Now they're recommending me clips from overrated cartoons and emo songs. Whoever wrote the YouTube recommendations algorithm should have been fired instead of being given a promotion for his work.

Mine is giving me mostly stuff from people I've subscribed to, which shouldn't be the case since there's a page already dedicated to that

I do occasionally get Pokemon comic dubs from whom I presume was either a troll or a pedophile seeing how the thumbnails were of known underage girls pleading not to [REDACTED] in them

At least they don't keep recommending you rants from thinly-disguised fascist fedora-tippers :| (Blank Stare)

the fedora is a meme, but my complaint about my YouTube recommendations list remains.

Mine are usually full of stuff that's at least somewhat related to what I've recently watched. Of course, I do get a few oddballs in there every now and then, but that's the exception, not the rule.

Maybe try clearing your cache/cookies every now and then? :shrug:

I haven't had any issues. It shows me exactly what I expect it to show me.

I have just looked at mine and even though the recommended for you page is alright the rest of the tags up there aren't. For instance I have a tag on mine for biomedical research! WTF! I have never ever in my life looked at videos on whetever biomedical research is.

It seems to me all sites are as bad as each other as on here on my recommended for you I get shown pics of naked men! Now why the hell would a hetrosexual man who's favourites are full of women be getting recommendations for naked men! DA's need to be fixed just as badly as youtubes.

that site is horrible for picking up on tags, cache, etc from other sites.  I am not cursed with the stupid algorithm of YouTube, but I'm not on there long enough to fall prey.  I've found out that logged out actually triggers less of their stupidity, don't understand that concept but that's google for you.
