when will the algorithms learn the difference between "thing about <topic i like>" and "thing about <topic i like> being presented in an extremely annoying way, treating the person reading or watching it like they're stupid, made extremely quickly by someone who injects bizarrely regressive jokes in for no obvious reason, specifically designed to make me no longer like <topic i like>"
