It was awesome.
Now, I go on YouTube to watch videos that are only a minute long, and I am subjected to commercials. 30-second commercials. 15 second commercials. Commercials I can skip. Commercials I canâ€™t skip.
What the fuck?
I get that YouTube needs to make money. It takes a shit ton of electricity and energy to run all the servers to deliver all that HD Â goodness quickly around the world. That stuff doesnâ€™t pay for itself.
But where is the line between convenience and profit? Why am I forced to pay attention to a boring commercial that is almost as long as the video? And why can I skip some commercials, but Iâ€™m forced to watch other commercials entirely?
Just make up your damn mind already YouTube. Either make us watch these crappy commercials, or donâ€™t. And whatever you choose, be clear about it to us, the users.
For the love of God, just let us watch our cat videos in peace.
