This is a clusterfuck to end all clusterfucks. I rarely use Youtube anymore for the simple fact that it's pretty much unusable. Youtube is too drunk on their own (as yet) unchallenged popularity to actually bother with listening to THE USER but I'm throwing my two cents in here as well. I DO NOT WANT, NEED OR CARE to know what my 'friends' on here thought was worthy of a thumb up or a comment. The only reason I come to youtube is to see what my subscriptions have uploaded. Is this too much to ask?
We screamed and shouted with YT over the (2.0) page layouts, we griped and petitioned about the full-on website overhaul last year--which, many thought was a freaking early April Fools prank! that's how bad it was--and we nearly lost it when our inboxes starred disappearing from the homepage and yet, for some reason, the idiots over at YT think that somehow, if the people are complaining about something they've redesigned, rather than address these complaints or even give us the option to revert back to whatever function they removed, the simply change it again. How the hell is that even logical? That's like going to a restaurant and telling the waiter the food is too salty and the chef ADDS MORE SALT.
Is this your way of punishing us for ever falling out of line by disliking what you've done with the place? Redesign us to death?
