i use youtube a lot. i watch all kinds of different vids. lectures, music, foodie stuff, science/math, tutorials, unboxings, nature, vidgames, etc.

i haven't been recommended anything extremist or terribly shitty. ever. and it's obviously a problem others are experiencing, which makes me wonder why im not getting it personally.

is my profile so refined from using google products over the years? is it because my interests are so varied there's plenty of non-extremist stuff to choose from? is it my aggressive adblocking?

wish i knew how it worked. i've never attempted to train their algorithms manually. i don't really use the thumbs up or down. don't tell them when something disinterests me, just ignore it.

or maybe I actually have been shown shitty content and my brain filtered it out. guess that's always a possibility.
