Worst Things About YouTube

The Top Ten
1 Advertisements

One of the worst ads I have ever seen is the anti-smoking ad that features annoying and trashy music and somebody singing about "butts" over and over again. What is worse is I could not skip it. In addition, there were some racy ads I could not skip and had to back off for awhile (the videos I usually watch are clean).

I absolutely HATE these stupid ads! They're just a waste of my time. For the hundredth time, I do NOT want Progressive Insurance, I do NOT want to buy a Google Pixel, and I do NOT want a Cheverlot!

All advertisements ever do is make me cringe. Especially the unskippable ones!

OK so, let me get this. One time I saw a 45min AD about "Top 40 SpongeBob Season 1 Episodes" and they said "Season 1-3 was good, Season 4 was OK, and Season 5-present was TERRIBLE! " Do you really think this will cause 3-6yr olds to stop watching the show?

I absolutely HATE advertisements! They're just a waste of time and it bothers me a-lot that I have to see those! Can't I just enjoy some videos in peace?!

2 Copyright Strikes

I wanted to watch manklor's modding video mario kart tour whale simulator gold edition, and it said deleted video in the playlist whale simulator mario kart tour, it said this video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by nintendo of america inc.. now he got a copyright strike I hope Nintendo won't give him 3 copyright strikes then he could get terminated

Terminating an account over copyright is a little bit too far for me.

Okay, ads I can handle but this crosses the line!

3 Clickbait

Don't forget the clickbait video titles! That's just a waste of time. You see a certain title of a video, you click on it and the whole video is not related to the title like what

I want to punch whoever uses clickbait in the face.

I'm looking at you Michael Green.

4 The COPPA Update

Yeah, why disable comments on every video when people don't want to.

This is the worst update on YouTube, they mark dumb things for kids.

5 Buffering
6 9-12 Year Olds Having Accounts

Not actually bad, but some of them don't respect opinions what ruins the comments sections quickly.

Let me tell you about things you can get now, and things you have to wait for
this is one of those things you have to wait for, just use it anonymously

They are too young

7 YouTubers Becoming Bad People

Normally I'd just say the old talent is departing and new talent is stepping in but that's not the case here, the old talent is departing but I'm not seeing any new talent

So many of the big name channels that we all loved like Smosh have just fallen from grace and turned into garbage, there's almost no good channels anymore

Pewdiepie doesn't deserve subs. He is racist.

16 "First" Comments

Wow! You're first! You earn nothing at all!
What's that? You tapped on a notification and sent a comment faster? You deserve my children!
Woah bro! Did you just comment FIRST one second after the video got released? HOLY NUTSACKS! Take my money! All of it!
Or, you could just comment something related to the video. Which is more tolerable.

That is true. How the heck is first a real comment. Your wasting 1 second of your Life looking at first.

Congratulations to the ten people who were first on the most recent video on YouTube!

So annoying. People think they're cool when they do this.

17 Misleading Thumbnails

No joke, I literally saw one video that which it's thumbnail was a picture of SpongeBob having anal sex with Princess Mindy. I clicked on it (I was just curious what the video was about. I'm not a pervert) and it had absolutely no sex in it at all.

18 Plagiarism

This have plagiarism because different language top channels copy english channels by translating

19 Comments Keep Getting Randomly Disabled

I hate they did it On family videos it not the same without the comments and can't see people comments, not everyone going to put bad comments on family videos I don't know they wanted to disable comments on videos with kids, babies and teens

They disabled comments on kid videos and family videos it sucks, it not the same

20 "Fake and Gay" Comments

Illogical 12 year olds.

21 Screamers
22 Google Buying YouTube in 2006

YouTube is dead. Letting Google buy it was a mistake.

23 The Channels Aren't Good Anymore

Smosh is a good example of a good channel gone bad.

24 YouTube Kids Cartoons

There are videos of living bugs/worms inside people's stomachs (along with a disturbing thumbnail) and blood (not just a tiny amount of blood as in when you scrape yourself, full on blood) in these videos. Whoever thought this was "kid friendly" has had a pretty messed up childhood.

They are just inappropriate.

25 AutoPlay

Turn it off then.
