This is "progress" in Google's so-called "mind"
I have posted many contributions to YouTube Forum in the last 4 years, that I had spent time to research, think, write very carefully. Not only did YouTube never take anything in account (neither from me nor from the many others who also contributed same way), but they removed the involved Forum pages from the web (or moved them under other URLs, same result).

Now I am just another desperate impotent witness of Google rednecks endlessly fiddling with their own assets without realizing what they are CONSISTENTLY DESTROYING. YouTube was obviously very carefully thought and designed in the 1st place; Google after buying it, is making tons of changes, a few good (e.g. taking in account the progress in available bandwidth), a lot awful, because they suddenly recklessly change this or that detail just for a tiny superficial benefit or even only for the please of changing, meanwhile inadvertently destroying big chunks of the existing careful optimizations. And still never listening at users. Too sad when you know what marvel YouTube has been.

One single tiny last example (sorry, I stopped spending time on feedback to YouTube): on my channel page, I can no more Right-Click an user and open his channel in another tab or window: I have now to Left-Click, copy its URL, turn the mother tab Back, manually open a new tab, paste the URL and hit Enter. This is "progress" in Google's so-called "mind".
