Default Youtube is dying...

No more Dr. Rabbit....

No more Walrusguy poop....

No more Running in the 90's with LEGO Mario!!!

NO MORE GAMING HISTORIAN!!!

MAYBE EVEN NO MORE YOUTUBE SOON!!!

thanks to overprotective-copyright freaks, hackers, and increasing amount of ads, youtube poop is starting to die, along with other series I've come to love. It's been a while since I've been on youtube, and it has changed. A lot. And not for the better, like Newgrounds has ( at least fulp uses common sense).

Ever since youtube started showing more ads, things have gone down hill, with corporations making the decisions, taking down videos, and over all clogging the website with their ads and videos designed to make you want to by their product. Well, I'm sick of it. So, I am making a coalition. Simply put, I will not watch youtube until the corporate crap is removed. If you want youtube back, join me. Reply and sign the petition.

Without the corporate advertising Youtube wouldn't exist. It would either have gone bankrupt a loooong time ago or become a paysite, which would make it inherently different. Ergo, ignore the ads and videos designed to make you want to buy the product, click on the link and then close the tab/window when it opens so that the ad gets traffic and therefore Youtube gets paid, and suck it up, because unless you're willing to pay for it, that's how it has to be.

Youtube has to use adds. When they let companies post their adds they get cash which you can get with a Youtube partnership. My friend has one and he makes almost 50 dollars a week with only a few hundred views. That can pile up you know. However, I do not think you should rely on Youtube as funding.

Youtube is not dying. It was just a fad a few years ago and now that fad has past. You can say the same with Myspace and Facebook. However, a fad never dies, it just goes out of style for a year. Then, it comes back and passes again. It is like global warming, it is cyclical.

It is like T.V stations. The shows have to have commercials in between them so they can run! Honestly...

Youtube is perfectly fine. It's just being corporatized.

I don't think there's anything wrong with Youtube. Sure the ads are an inconvenience, but they are minor.

So long as I see my vids and stuff like that, I'm happy. *shooting the X with my cursor on certain ads and not bothering with the intervening kind*

I never really cared for youtube poop. I actually found it to be annoying.

But yeah, youtube was IMHO, at it's best back in 2006. I know I shouldn't be saying this, but girly videos back then actually had hot and cute girls instead of girls who simply think they're hot.

And ads are a GOOD thing. I'd rather go to a site with annoying advertisements than have to pay a hefty monthly fee just to watch videos or youtube videos. I'm a college student/grocery bagger...I can't afford paysites!

Honestly the ads dont bother me as much as some videos being muted because of a copyrighted song or something like that. I think all that copyright crap is really annoying.
The ads are a bit annoying too but I can live with them.
And I also think youtube was better before but its still ok.
