Top Ten Ways YouTube Sucks Nownelsonerica YouTube was once so great to go on back in the day.
But recently, it has become a piece of bullcr@p like nothing else.
Some might agree or disagree with what's said on here, but it's the truth, no harm done.
Here are the reasons why YouTube sucks nowadays.
The Top Ten
YouTube, what are you doing? The copyright is bullcrap, it's even going to lose you money. The copyright system is flawed to the point were it's just so easy to falsely claim copyright, the claimer when they are caught doesn't even get into terrible for it. It just takes 3 flawed claims to ruin a entire channel, or life depending on what channel is deleted. Do you even know what the word "fair use" even means? Legit parodies are getting taken down, PARODIES, are you kidding me? Well, YouTube probably won't see this, but whatever. - PinataonSugar
YouTube used to be a place where you can watch videos, shows and movies for free or even download them for free without being illegal or containing viruses.
But then complaints about them being copyright took place and YouTube removed those videos because of that, yet it's going out of control, even edited videos get removed for those reasons - nelsonerica
This is actually why I'm the angriest at youtube I've ever been. It used to allow parody channels to exist, but they figured they may as well delete them because of "copyright" even though it was perfectly legal. Frankly, I may just start using another video uploading site, I'm not sure if I can deal with youtube anymore after it deleted one of my favorite channels
I heard that once someone one got a copyright notice just for singing the lyrics to a song. No music. No nothing, just the person's voice. This by far deserves to be the #1 reason. Do people who work at YouTube's headquarters even know what the word copyright even means?V 19 Comments
YouTube used to be a completely original place to go on, and it was the best as well, but now it's gone.
No more originality (other than those memory videos from you know who) and that's a major reason why YouTube sucks now.
When you went on YouTube back in the past, you were spellbound by all the awesomeness and especially originality it had.
There were videos of people doing original things, think about Numa Numa, Charlie Bit My Finger, Chocolate Rain, The Sneezing Panda, Star Wars Kid, Dramatic Chipmunk, and don't forget Fred.
But if you go on now, and ever since 2014, you are looking at nothing but pure lack of originality and those people are making videos about almost nothing but unoriginal and even gross stuff and showing off their parts to get more views and make more money, yet doing any sexual stuff for money is prostitution and that's illegal, those people are going to get sued one day, maybe sooner than we think/know.
And there are people ...more - nelsonerica
Talking about the same things to stay relevant
"No more originality"
So basically you guys are joining the YouTube Heroes fascist clan? - Mcgillacuddy
Three words: Clash Royale YouTubers. Honestly they have the easiest job in the world: 1. Wake up 2. Go on Twitter 3. Find "good" challenge to do that is 100% no sarcasm *cough* "unoriginal" 3. Post video with facecam of you getting super excited that your Goblins beat a Prince or something 4. Don't reply to comments because that's for "causal youtubers" 5. Go to bed 6.Repeat
Thumbs up if you agree
YouTube was once entertaining to go on, but then very recently, it has started to change like nothing else.
Many users have either gone crazy or YouTube gained crazy users, they aren't even funny at all, they just do stupid and random things that rely too much on shock value and junk, like worse than vomit.
They just want to discuss the worst parts of their personal lives to others, and yet the people also use bad words and talk too much about certain things, like when was the last time someone lost his/her virginity? It's just stupid that people on YouTube these days are especially taking it the wrong way.
And not only that, they do that stuff because they're too desperate for money and yet since YouTube has paid them to do things, they're especially nowadays going way too overboard on it.
Yet even the best YouTube channels are either gone or messed up by idiots, again, because of money.
Now we don't have anything entertaining nor original on YouTube ...more - nelsonerica
Very true, it was once great, but took the DeviantArt path and became a horrible site.
People are fighting and making some of the worst videos about some of the worst parts about their personal lives and letting others invade their privacy.
And the reactions don't make any sense and the anime fans are just going out of control.
It used to be great, but now it sucks.
True, YouTube sucks now, the entertainment is gone, people are just posting stupid videos about their bodies and poop, they even make fun of others and themselves, and they like to talk about having sex.
I hate memes like 10hours of lelelele they just want money, also Spongebob in other languages is overrated, I feel like unsubscibing on those channelsV 9 Comments
One of my biggest pet peeves. I'm sick of seeing video thumbnails with exposed body parts (yes if you use the view source feature and search for og:image youll see the full size image) flung all over YouTube. There are so many videos with this that I am sure children are seeing because I don't sign into YouTube. Thus proving that there is no maturity filter present. Thanks click bait... Because idiots click that crap in the hopes of actually seeing what is depicted in the picture more and more crapbait exists.
Clickbait is all over the Internet now!
Clickbait basically runs the site now. Every "popular" video uses it to draw in viewers who then point out that it's a clickbait video and yet Youtube themselves continues to promotes this junk.
Clickbaits are wasting my time, dislike should not count as a view.V 4 Comments
YouTube used to keep good videos, but now, since its evolution and that of its people, YouTube won't keep many of the good videos anymore, they delete them soon after they're uploaded, while the bad ones, on the other hand, stay for as long as possible.
YouTube sucks man.
Channels that helps to improve people's life are being deleted such as the Subliminal Music channels, the advices and even animal rescues being deleted lately, YouTube remains Logan Paul like channels
Yeah... The youtube kids cartoons...
Yeah! - OutcastV 1 Comment
YouTube used to have awesome and funny jokes that made us laugh, now it has nothing but disgusting jokes from people who have no life or talent, and they like to joke about gross foods as well as poop and their own body parts.
It's just so awful that people are doing that stuff for fame and money, yet they don't even care about their fans and they want to do everything negative they can to get as much as they want.
YouTube sucks now. - nelsonerica
Also the reaction channel's are so bad I can't believe people actually call that talent and call themeselfs You tubing people. Silly as jokes is annoying and doing anything to get attention I miss eating people making stories.
I used to like 7-Secound Riddles. Until all he did was make jokes about body parts. - SilverstreamSucks
Yeah, it's true, sometimes the only reason make more videos on YouTube is to get the money they provide when they get verified. Like Pewdiepie, I have no idea why he is popular, but he just screams, cusses, and plays games to make them popular. That's all he does, it takes no effort what-so-ever to do that. So this what's popular today? Well, I'm not shocked since VINE is popular. - PinataonSugar
That's exactly what YouTube's about theses days, people are so greedy that they just want to do whatever they can to make money, like take pictures of their bodies and/or talk about sexual related stuff/jokes and even swear and play with/eat poop or vomit.
It's just horrible that people choose to do that stuff because they want money so bad and they're trying so hard to make money, and while YouTube pays them, they're going too far. - nelsonerica
Almost every channels these days:
1. Sell merch (especially when they are not popular)
2. Are going to sell merch
3. Have a sponsor for every video
4. Talk about subscribing in the first 10 seconds of each video
5. Make a movie for the fan profit and then quit their channel to buy a mansion
6. Claim to do YouTube solely to appease the fans but instead get popular and make a movie, game, etc that just flops
YouTube was full of entertainment, but soon it got invaded with too many ads that interrupted our favorite videos.
Yet some advertisements could even have violence, sex or drugs, and that's a big problem with us. - nelsonerica
YouTube wants/needs Ad Revenue. Rather than ban controversial videos because they aren't Disney clean, why not acquire advertisers more congenial to the content? Lingerie and singles resorts advertise somewhere, don't they? And they pay premium bucks. To restate myself: Why not sort out the advertisers rather than censor the content?
Now I have some hacked ads every time when I rather watch YouTube I go on YouTube and I wait 10 seconds and some ads show up and they automatically take me to websites that don't have anything but only viruses.
Not only ads will not help, but it interrupts 1000000x more than I doV 13 Comments
What happened to the commentary? I agree, I found this site because I was unable to find a way to increase the buffer size in video downloads. I have a slow connection and use to buffer a video while I did something else. Now I have to watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a ...more
It takes forever to run a video. I have lost my patience numerous times. You Tube/Google sucks.
I was happy but then YouTube had an update and now the videos can't load anymore
My computer is pretty good, but I've noticed an influx of buffering in the past month...is it just me? - JustAnAccountV 2 Comments
This happened to me last August 2016. it's not fair! does it take so long because google is reviewing it? I am not violating one of YouTube's comment rules and my comments are not meant to be a spam! why other users can do it (even with swear words and spamming) and not me (or anybody else)? - Lucy1402
YouTube is also known as "one of the worst places on the internet." Bullying is the main reason behind it. YouTubers nowadays are so arrogant and full of themselves. That mostly applies to anime reviewers. - ToukaKirishima
When you see a video, you comment on it, but then not long afterwards, there were people posting mean comments about the videos and other people, some even said they want to f others off or even kill them.
Many even made fun of other people and/or their bodies/body parts and used the wrong words.
And some even said "kill it with fire" and that isn't even the worst, the worst is "if you don't like them, don't watch them", it's so mean because they're telling the others to go away/to h just because they don't like the videos/people.
Opinions exist, but mean comments are unnecessary and only hurt other people's feelings, and can even cause fights, which would ruin their lives, yet that's bullying and that's one of the worst things in the world.
It's one of the main things that ruined YouTube. - nelsonerica
Does anyone agree with me that Anime America Podcast should have its channel deleted by YouTube? Bullies like them shouldn't be allowed to make videos on YouTube if they can't respect people's opinions. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
YouTube comments only have one thing they look up to nowadays; which is hate. They like to twist peoples words around, make them seem like an idiot. Hate on YouTube feels like a cartoon.V 13 Comments
Why isn't this number 1? I hate it in the comments when old people are like "Our generation was better! " Then cherry-pick information about what kids today do. I'm a kid and I don't go drinking and twerking at parties. I bet 99.9% of what they think about kids is what they see on those "shocking" news channels where the kid(s) get kidnapped by a pedo for posting some nudes on Instagram or whatever. And then those, "Kids these days lie, cheat, and steal." Like yeah, you've never lied to your mom to get a candy bar, never looked over someone's shoulder on a test, never took something without asking in your ENTIRE LIFE.
It's even more annoying when teenagers try to copy those old people by trying to be "edgy" by hating on popular things for no reason. Just because someone shakes their butt ONCE then they hate the song/video and then they try to say that ALL videos are like that. There WERE songs and video like that back in the "good old days" except they were mostly hidden due to ...more
Old YouTube, you click the quality you want, you play it, and you can skip back forward with minimal buffering. Current YouTube, you click the quality you want, click play,wait 20 minutes to buffer, hope that your quality doesn't drop to 144p, and maybe, if you're lucky after 5 refreshes, your video plays.
YouTube was so good back then, but one of the things that ruined it was that Google+ bought it.
Ever since Google+ bought it, people had to sign in to Google+ to watch videos or even post comments.
YouTube lost its free magic, but at least that's over. - nelsonerica
Technically Google itself as a company bought YouTube, but I get what you mean. Google+ did not help YouTube at all.
Google and YouTube sensor anything that doesn't agree with their agenda.
Youtube was great, till Google+ bought it. Now I can't comment, and I not getting a dum Google+ account.V 1 Comment
It is a rip off and a way of getting money. You get no ads and extra videos, it is injustice just like how the world is now, Africa starving while celebrities are getting loads of money from showing a nipple in a scene of a 2 second movie. Well done
Honestly...who's ever gonna buy this? - ClicheUsername69
Youtubers get money from ad revenue...if you're going to have Red not have any ads then where is your compensation?

The YouTube layout USED to be a great, fresh-looking style until YouTube ruined it.
It's so plain and boring. - wrests
The layout was so organized, and was full of videos released from similar channels, as well as videos from that channel. Now, it's overfilled with just trending videos, recommended bullsh! t and barely any videos from the creator. - naFrovivuS
What does this even mean
Not the biggest thing but god will they ever shut up about disproved "theories? " Do they even know what theory means?
Game Theroy is awful, and his fan base is full of rabbid six year olds. - DatBoiOnTheRun
Does this mean I make you tube suck? because I'm a game theorist fan? - DragonFire1o
I asked a person to please stop with that comment and they said no - Gehenna
Me:On YouTube watching smosh food battle 2010 in 2018
Me:Going through comments
Me:Who wow this guy post a comments saying 2018 Anybody
It’s so annoying and they just get it for likes. Anyway, they will not get famous!
Only idiots types this! - Ghalia14
The YouTube algorithm is no friend to the content creator(s) or viewer(s). It buries individuals who put time and dedication into making videos and rewards those who post long (10+ minute videos) 1-2 times per day. This not only discourages a vast majority of people who do not know about the flawed algorithm but also hides great content from most people, recommending the videos and channels with the most watchtime. Watchtime is the average amount of time users watch a video before clicking away. The longer a video is, the more likely someone is to stay. Also, a video that spans he length of ten minutes can have up to FOUR advertisements, whereas videos under ten, can contain only one ad.
The worst algorithm I have ever seen. As simple as that. Million + lines of un-useful.
It's become so flawed that it seems only beneficial to the Paul brothers. Even PewDiePie is getting affected by this. - naFrovivuS
I used to have a YouTube channel where I'd upload memes and make videos about games and computers, as well as animations and logos for other users. Around August of 2017, I decided to stop making offensive memes and start focusing on more serious content due to backlash from viewers on the latest of these memes.
The same day, I had received my first Guidelines strike for an Emoji Movie 9/11 meme that had garnered about 15, 000 views and tons of negative comments, then another one the next day for another 9/11 meme, which was a Neon Evangelion opening parody. My ability to upload was taken for two weeks, so I tried to alert the fans through the comments section about what was going on. I also set every video I made tagged "9/11" private so no one could flag them, and made a backup account on Vidme in case my YT channel was taken down. Eventually, the worst that could happen did, and on August 12, my channel was terminated and my Google account was disabled. The ...more - SGWaS
As a small channel I have to agree with that one. Youtube does nothing to help small channels to gain some exposure out there.
YouTube has a clear agenda in regards to who they promote and who they don't. They like liberal channels and dislike conservative channels. They also make it more difficult to find conservative channels.
It's really easy to claim the liberals are removing the conservatives. But the burden of proof is on you - Frouze
This in my opinion is the worst, back when Youtube was good it forced you to explore other creators, instead of spoon feeding the content. Now all the normies don't care what they watch and would rather have everything the easier way.V 7 Comments
Why are they hated so much? They're normal people who are doing their best to make videos on YouTube - PeeledBanana
It's their audience that's annoying - JustAnAccount
I love minecraft. LOL!
Yep. Now don't get me the 'Hi guys! I'm a 6 year old Minecraft player that likes to annoy my older sibling. Yaaay.' Shut up kid!V 1 Comment
Remember when YouTube used to have videos with background music that sounded funny and entertaining?
Sometimes you even hear that music in kids comedy T.V. shows.
Now we barely have any of that, where did it all go? the music on the videos we watch today sounds pointless.
Who would want to listen to music like Jenna Marbles's "Fireside"? It sounds erotic, it's an example.
Which shows you that YouTube's quality is totally deteriorating and losing originality, same thing with its background stock music. - nelsonerica
Everyone uses the same music nowadays. Probably afraid of copyright - JustAnAccount
YouTube used to allow people to customize their channels, but that can't happen anymore, YouTube has changed so much lately, it sucks. - nelsonerica
YT channels now look... so plain. Nothing stands out. - wrests
The one that's right next to the THUMBS-UP button on someone's comment. They're making us think the opinion counts but they don't actually show how many dislikes a comment has...
It should subtract the number of likes it has...I'd like to see comments with - 596 likes - JustAnAccount
What fake dislike? - Frouze
Why can't they make it like reddit where it actually decreases the upvote count.
No wonder YouTube has gained so much drama lately these days, people are fighting and making stupid videos and comments, it's just like DeviantArt, that site was once good, but then people started fighting and drawing some of the most disgusting pictures in the world.
More good videos, less crap talking. Causing drama attracts the audience attention by cliffhangers, it will force the audience to wait for the next video and watch it. This is 95% of the to fake and if it isn't it will influence the people watching it and they will cause drama in real life. Trump won and look at the protestors, all stupid kids that watch YouTube everyday.
YouTube used to be so creative back then, there were cool videos, some were funny, some even helped you learn things.
But sadly, this isn't the case with YouTube nowadays, the videos you're seeing now are nothing but a bunch of crap done for nothing but attention and views, those people don't even know how to make good videos or be creative, even the DIY projects aren't creative, they're more like poop builds rather than actual DIY projects, the results are garbage.
Nobody is good at them anymore, and I agree with that guy who brought our "favorite character" back for a sequel, but still, we've lost the wide range of creativity we used to have on YouTube.
Of course I don't want to annoy you, but much of this comment is true, YouTube was good back then, but it isn't good anymore, and not to have one person in the way, but the point is that YouTube isn't even good anymore because all the people who used to make entertaining videos are now making stupid garbage videos that negatively influence others including me. - nelsonerica
Yup, true. Now youtube is filled with talking, vlogging, and the same repeated content like bottle flip challenges and we see a lot of bottle flip challenges and the same game people are playing! And videos these days are sharing their personal lives about their boyfriend, girlfriend, and others. The videos these days are mostly people talking
Believe it, the greatest YouTube channel of all time, FRED, has been sold by the person who created it, Lucas Cruikshank, because he wanted money, and he spent that money on a dumb useless vehicle.
And the people he sold it to have left 10 months ago, so therefore nobody's running it anymore.
It's the most horrible thing ever to happen to YouTube, You guys hated Fred so much because his voice was so annoying? He was supposed to be annoying, that was the thing about it, and he was creative, his story lines and characters were complete originality, and YouTube is garbage without Fred.
The Sneezing Panda, Charlie Bit My Finger, Numa Numa, Chocolate Rain and others were great, but Fred has influenced YouTube in ways that nothing else will ever do.
There will never EVER be a worse or sadder moment than this on YouTube, this has hit every record of it.
At least he made a few new Fred videos on his barely popular vlog channel to bring memories to his current ...more - nelsonerica
I TOTALLY agree with this, Nelsonerica was SO right, Fred was so annoying, but he was original, his lines were original, and especially his catchphrase "HEY IT'S FRED! ".
He sold his FRED Channel because he wanted money, he was going to Korea to save Fred from that new idiot as a way to bring Fred back, but instead afterwards, he just sold his channel to make more money, and he wasted it on some dumb car.
by the way, I saw that new Fred video, and I trust you, he admitted it at the same time and brought Fred back, and it was 2 days after Christmas in 2015, he did it.
Selling the FRED channel was the worst thing that has ever happened to and on YouTube.
The channel was kinda good. Why did they do that? - Neonco31
It’s more annoying then BEFORE! And they haven’t post a video In two years since they bought the channel!V 1 Comment
YouTube sucks now.
I still like youtube and I don't like reading too much but really did google really buy it ok whatever
Well, back then until...2011 I'ma say, YouTube was just so you could upload short little videos. Watch the first few videos ever uploaded and compare it to all the trending channels. You'll see how some YouTubers have lost their sense of creativity. - naFrovivuS
I agree. Little kids aren't being banned for being under 13 when they should be banned.
I don't think 8 year olds should have youtube because they might use their parents number and when that person gets money off youtube they will ring the kids parents
All they do is curse with emojis, spell things horribly wrong, use all those "cool" trends, and act like they're fans of someone when really they're stupid little kids who want to be those douches on the internet. Who even buys them all this equipment?
My 9 YEAR OLD cousin has a YouTube account
His video's actually aren't kid friendly.
Why isn't this higher? Some Youtubers are starting to cater to 8 year olds so they don't lose money from swearing. - aieesa
This sucks! SML(supermariologan) is getting demonetized even though he's been making kid friendly videos! #savesml
Youtube should know by now that there are a bunch of knuckleheads on it's sites and will only use this to screw every single youtuber over. What is wrong with you, Youtube? - UltraGamer
Worst crap ever
Youtube : I'm d.ying...
Ughh Youtube heroes
It must be a complete coincidence that YouTube blocked comments after Trump won the election. What delicate snowflakes they are.
Youtube sucks cause of disike buttons but dislike buttons used to be good sometimes to TAKE DOWN THE BAD VIDEOS
I actually found the dislike button useful. - wrests
Vegans, feminists, religion, homos, supremacists, you name it, YouTube has it
Their are too many stupid retards in comments section

The only reason Weird Part of Youtube exists. It's gross. - MChkflaguard_Yt
These Are Seriously Cyber Bullying
I see these everywhere and it not even funny because everyone can be everything these are just bullying people - TinyToonsGirl45
Just let other people be themselves. Youtube should ban these videos.
Cringe Compilations are designed to Cyberbullying others.
Back then, there was no Sub4sub. Then nowadays, so many stupid kids are using Sub4sub and all it does is sub back to other random multiple channels. Wow, they have 5000 subs and they have like 50 to 100 views. - Ghalia14
I agree, it sucks and I know stupid idiotic 7-10 year olds are using this!
YA IKR, I donno why they use it
What’s the point in subscribing to random people just because they’re supposedly going to subscribe back if you’re not even going to watch their videos? - 3DG20
My son is now going through this. Unable to communicate with anyone from YouTube to discuss the issue. Seems YouTube is untouchable.
Yes I know! I appealed many times but it takes long time for them to reply!

YouTube used to be very funny to go on, now it's not anymore.

YouTube is dead. - nelsonerica
THERE IS FUNNY VIDEOS there is guy call explodingTNT and he do funny minecraft videos lol
Well, most YouTubers are still funny, at least who I watch. I'm sure that there's a bunch of YouTubers that aren't funny, but whatever. - funnyuser
I've searched for videos I KNOW exist, but couldn't get a result because of the dreadful search algorithm. And the recommended videos have little to do with the bulk of videos I actually watch.
I wish youtube added the disable recommendations button. - SlavicViking
I wish I was on YouTube when they had the 5 stars. That is much better than the like/dislike button. - 3DG20
I loved the star ratings, especially learning what each star meant - wrests
Why can't there be star ratings anymore? I loved giving ol' mike mozart a golden ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
And furbyhaters a golden " "
And now... Furbyhaters get ONE 👎🏼 and mike mozart gets a 👍🏼? WHY?!?
Can these lifeless people start doing something else that is more meaningful? Not even 1 hour music videos are that bad! - MChkflaguard_Yt
I think these are pointless! Most of them are minecrafters who won't stop complaining about who's more "mlg"!
YouTube used to be full of awesome people, but it seems it took the Disney Channel route, with good people becoming bad people, we've seen original people, like Smosh, Miranda Sings, Fred, Jennxpenn, and NigaHiga.
These are the most famous originals, now they're all bad people because they made bad choices such as posting videos about garbage and sexual content uncensored, yet they even swear.
It just ruins us that many of the YouTubers that got millions of views would do that later on in their life, and as Disney Channel took that path, YouTube took it too.
Miranda Sings today does not swear. She's a good Christian girl and GETS MAD at people once they curse. - NocchiCheese
Youtuber now is EVIL? at least I have fun watching these videos :P whatever
They used to do videos for their fans, they loved doing what their fans loved, they were even complimented by their fans.
Now that can't happen anymore, now they're too focused on making money, and they're trying too hard by making some of the laziest and pointless videos on the planet, and they aren't even good to watch, they used to make awesome videos, but now, they can't anymore. - nelsonerica
