It’s a lot harder than that, unfortunately. Just look at the gamergate bullshit as an example. They rope you in with a single grievance then you’re in the algorithm and can’t get out.
Here’s an example. I went to college with someone who went on to marry a former Blizzard exec. A video popped up on my youtube sidebar, something like “Former blizzard exec trashes new pay structure.” and it was the guy my friend had married. He was in her Twitch stream ranting about Blizzard cutting bonuses while she sat next to him trying to get him to stop talking.
I watched that video because my old friend was in it. Now, the algorithm thinks I should watch more videos from this Youtuber. His next video is some discussion about the Captain Marvel trailer. Surprise surprise, he doesn’t like it because “femenissssmm!!!” but he phrases it in such a way like “Captain Marvel is clearly OP and that’s not an interesting character, I feel like Marvel is trying to cater to the crowd that was attracted to Wonder Woman or Black Panther…” coded anti-SJW bullshit. I realized this Youtuber was a piece of shit at that point, but I’m a 40 year old man with some worldly experience.
I’m a 10 or 12 year old kid watching this and I don’t get the dog whistling. Now the algorithm is showing me more extreme youtubers, guys that speak more plainly about their racist or misogynist agenda. In the scope of games of course. Wow it sure is funny Battlefield V is selling poorly, clearly it’s because they put women in it! I watch that video, now I’m getting videos from Jordan Peterson. If I click into those, now I’m seeing Infowars in the sidebar. And on and on it goes.
It’s horrible and I hate it, but Youtube is such an excellent platform with real quality content. But, they need to ban these alt right scumbags. Just 1 or 2 bans will do it, the rest of them will fall in line real quick because Youtube is their livelihood. That Google can remove their income in an instant will scare the fuck out of them and they’ll stick to straight commentary.
