Youtube does it again?

Postby aardvark_admin » Fri Dec 14, 2018 12:20 pm

YouTube has announced that it is now removing "spam" subscriptions from YouTube channels.

Apparently they have "secret squirrel technology" that allows them to tell a genuine sub from a spam sub and this (AI?) stuff will be deciding whether those who have subscribed to a channel are really subscribers or not.

Pause for dramatic effect...

You just KNOW this is going to turn into a fiasco.

Apparently people have already started bitching that they've been "automatically" unsubscribed from some of their favourite channels -- probably because this AI decided on their behalf that they weren't geniune.

I will just sit back and watch this roll out.
