Two days ago I deleted all my subscriptions, favorites and videos, and the beginning of my shunning YouTube for other video services. I signed out when I left to emphasize my being upset, only for my benefit than for anyone else's.
Today hen I got to the home page *boom* the old layout was back. I was delighted. I thought someone finally came to their senses. It was laid out exactly the way I had arranged it before the switchover. All I had to do was sign in, which I was eager to do because the many complaints finally made a difference.
With a Halleluia and Amen, I signed in...
The layout instantly changed back to the new layout.
Looks like YouTube is sufficiently concerned about our complaints to pull a bait and switch on their home page to get people to sign-in. But not concerned enough to admit defeat and return to the old layout.
