owing 40 million > owing 40 million and being in prison

i assume thats the calculus, maybe the fines go away if you are in prison but i doubt it

i once got recommended a video with an odd thumbnail and an even weirder title which i moused over to see the preview for like 10 seconds before going "what the gently caress" and moving to something else. youtube somehow figured i loved that poo poo and spent the next 5 days or so recommending me similar extremely hosed up fetish stuff a lot of which i assumed wasn't even allowed. a good chunk of them had literally millions of views so they've probably been reported before, but i guess they're pretty profitable so lol if you think youtube's going to enforce anything

idk why people feel the need to defend youtube's algorithm like this whenever it comes up ...

that person didn't "defend" anything though - they just reported that their experience was different to what the other poster was complaining about

my experience fwiw is that the recommendations column is full of 80s and EDM music tracks because that's all i ever watch on youtube.

"maybe stop watching weird conservative videos and this won't happen to you" sure sounds like they're saying it must be your fault you're seeing poo poo, which is the response people seem to have whenever this comes up and if it's not defending the algorithm it sure comes off like it is

it could also be due to any other (faulty) data google might have on you that is not the youtube view history. hell it might be someone else from the household who shares the ip or god knows what

he was also charged with “ASSAULT CAUSES BODILY INJURY FAMILY VIOLENCE”, and has a ton of civil stuff going on. Amazingly his wife didn’t leave him until last year.

I did some work at a toy auction house last year and the world of “graded” toys (ie assessed for how good the condition is and then sealed in an airtight box) is loving insane. Star Wars figures going for 5 figures.
