Top 10 Reasons to Leave YouTube

We all loved YouTube, it has given us so many awesome videos and shows for us, there were people who made funny videos that made us all laugh.

But it seems that we don't have any good videos anymore, and instead they're being filled in with a bunch of crappy garbage videos that don't mean anything other than shock value and laziness.

It's a horrible evolution for YouTube and much of the Internet.

Here's a list of the reasons why we should all leave YouTube.

As far as this list was made, it is flawless and has no mistakes, it deserves approvement for what it is.

The Top Ten

1 It's Not Good Anymore

YouTube needs to be back to this fun site it used to be, not this trashy money-making site that hurts our heads, I hardly see any good videos anymore, yet I keep going on many different channels to see if there are any good videos, and so far, very few, once they get removed, then YouTube is dead.

It's the Worst site now, I used to go on it, I loved it for so long, but now it's not good anymore, I can't watch anything on it anymore, all the videos I love are destroyed and replaced with horrible videos.

YouTube's mainstream is horrible now, back then it was good, but now it's all crap, what happened to the good days of YouTube?

YouTube still is good right now, even if we have people like LeafyisHere, Durv, elisocray etc. People are just overreacting. - TheYoshiPyro64

2 YouTubers Have Become Bad People

YouTube used to have awesome people you would want to watch their videos of and subscribe to, they were so funny.

But nowadays, that isn't the case anymore, now we're seeing even the best YouTubers in history become bad people, they are doing bad things like making fun of people, swearing, not listening to fans, and showing off their body parts for more viewers and money, it's serious, they've turned to the dark side.

It just shows you that YouTube and its people have lost their charm and can't be good anymore, they choose to be bad and not realize what happens when they do that. - nelsonerica

Yeah, I tend to avoid people like that.

Look who is talking - Nateawesomeness

I so agree on this one. Nathaniel Bandy, SMG4, Chuggaaconroy, bill wurtz, I Hate Everything etc. did get worse over the years. - TheYoshiPyro64

3 The Comedy Is Gone

Remember when YouTube used to have all these funny videos from people, they made us laugh so hard we would get the hiccups.

But that's hardly happening anymore, and even the funniest people we once had on YouTube, have gone downhill to extremes, and with that, it has been connected to us that YouTube cannot be funny anymore, but instead have gross videos treated as comedy. - nelsonerica

Actuallyi he comedy has grown - Nateawesomeness

Sam Pepper pranks are comedy for me LMAO

He touched girls in their butts and pretended to kill a best friend, he got reported multiple times, because he's the biggest demon on YouTube, it's his fault for making those videos. - nelsonerica

Actually, we have SMG4, bill wurtz, Nathaniel Bandy, Memeulous and more! - TheYoshiPyro64

4 YouTube Doesn't Respect Smaller Channels

They kick off the smaller channels that aren't making enough money for the company. As if Google doesn't have enough money!

Actually, we have PewDiePie; hate him all you want, but he actually does donate to charities and has appeared on smaller gaming channels. - TheYoshiPyro64

Give them a chance.

5 Reliance on Shock Value

YouTube used to be the best site ever to go on, but lately, people have been doing weird things like this, such as talking about and doing weird things, like joke about certain subjects/objects like certain body areas, and often, they even flash certain parts onto the cameras for shock value, more viewers and money.

It's just such a shame that people do that very often nowadays on YouTube, and it's just one of the most desperate attempts at gaining more viewers, subscribers and making more money, it just ruins their reputations and pollutes our entertainment and minds, how can anyone watch a good video with all this garbage around? - nelsonerica

6 Harsh Comments

When people went on YouTube, they posted comments about the videos.

But then, like we didn't hope, people started posting comments that were wither rude, insulting, negative, or just annoying.

Some people made fun of others, and there are even people who are bullied by others when they're just trying to let others know, and there are also comments of people not liking certain sexual orientations.

We know things like this happen on social sites, but on YouTube, it has gone too far. - nelsonerica

Then leave YouTube. I personally find it to be good site; just avoid the bad users. - SwagFlicks

I Hate the comments people post on YouTube, most of them are to bully others, they hurt people, and some of that is going on here too, but nowhere near as much, Plus, this site is still good compared to the now crappy old YouTube.

Harsh? More like someone can't take negativity. "Bullying" has turned into a word used by people who overreact over criticism. Not everyone would like you and you can't please everyone. And I acknowledge that not everyone would like this comment, too.

It goes with it, harsh can describe as either too strong and/or bullying, it falls within that, and there really are people fighting a lot there. - nelsonerica

Yes, I tend to stay away from the harsh side of websites because of this.

7 Swearing

It's actually true, people swear because they want to and because they want more viewers, they don't realize that it's not a way to get viewers, and they're being horrible, people just like to mess their minds with idiotic psychopaths that pollute our internet, at least this site is cleaner and better.

I feel like I am the only adult on the whole 'net who doesn't swear. I wish more people didn't swear as it can be unpleasant and there are many words you can use as an alternative.

Swearing is a big problem, we know lots of people on Earth swear, even your parents or siblings can swear, but on YouTube, which was once a place for just about everyone to go on, it has gained in swearing to levels we've never measured before, and even some of the most iconic people who didn't swear back then are swearing now, it shows you more proof that YouTube is going downhill. - nelsonerica

Oh, boo hoo! Let me play a sad song for ya on the world's smallest violin. - Mr. Krabs - TheYoshiPyro64

8 Copyright Strikes

YouTube used to accept people uploading videos, including clips from shows/movies as well as full shows/movies, for free, but then one day, someone complained about copyright and reported to YouTube about it, then YouTube was hypnotized and removed the videos, and then, they have grown so much that they complained to the point of taking down even edited videos, YouTube isn't even good anymore. - nelsonerica

This is a major peeve of mine. I wish it didn't happen.

9 Bad Videos are "Recommended for You"

I hate "recommended for you". It is so annoying.

All the time, it made me hate YouTube so much.

10 8-year-olds are Having YouTube Accounts


Not all 8-year-olds are terrible, but they should not be having accounts. Especially on popular YouTube videos, those "children" says things like "ime onlee 7 but hadd secks with 10 gurlz," or "Ime 8 yeerz ol buut alreedee 9'10" tawl," and many other unrealistic comments. Not all children with YouTube accounts do that, but most do. It's annoying to many adults skimming through the comments. I apologize if this is a stupid comment. - anonygirl

The Contenders

11 Plagiarism

YouTubers used to make videos with their own original ideas, but they aren't doing that anymore, instead, they are being like everyone else, of course when you get older you want to move on, but what they're doing is plagiarizing each other with their not-so-random videos and many people and I can't even go onto YouTube anymore with all those copycat videos being made, they either ran out of ideas or just don't want to make good videos, they lost their effort and talent. - nelsonerica

It's called a SCHTICK. A few YouTubers would copy one another but that's called INSPIRATION. - TheYoshiPyro64

Agreed so much. Ripoffs and stealing both suck.

12 Google+

YouTube used to be great and free, and back then, people would upload any video for free without signing in, but then Google+ decided to take over YouTube, and that was when it first went downhill.

Ever since then, people had to sign in to Google+ and get an account from them in order to upload videos, like/dislike them, subscribe to the YouTubers, post comments, etc.

Google+ is a big corporation made by Google, but Google+ did not help YouTube at all, it was originally supposed to be a social sharing site, but instead, it ended up being a marketing place that forced people for money, YouTube didn't really even need Google+. - nelsonerica

True, Google+ was what ruined YouTube in the first place, people have to sign in to Google+ in order to upload videos, subscribe to others or post comments, Google cares too much about money and they don't give a thing to people because they beg too much for money, yet I agree it was supposed to be a social sharing site, when it instead became a greedy marketing site.

Google+ sucks, they are AWFUL and they ruined YouTube, now you have to sign in to Google+ in order to have a YouTube account.

13 Too Many Advertisements
14 The Channels Aren't Good Anymore

Remember back when you go on YouTube, you saw these amazing channels, but now, even if/though they're still there, they aren't good anymore, and it shows you that they have evolved into awful channels with little to no entertaining videos and and the people making the videos aren't good anymore. - nelsonerica

I can't STAND the channels YouTube has now, it used to have awesome channels to go on and watch videos on, but not anymore, they're just creepy and disgusting, who would pay people to watch them?

The good days are over.
