ProTip: Remember to check your URLs for "utm_*" parameters

E.G. If I see:
"?utm_source=reddit.com" at the end of the URL you shared, I know you got it from Reddit

Or "utm_campaign=newsletter0120" tells me you probably copied it from an email sent in January of last year

These are never needed to actually reach the page you're sharing. They're just for analytics (UTM tracking modules) and will reveal where you get your information (to us and the site), which may cause privacy issues

@cypnk Alongside your recommendation I cannot stress enough how far, for the better, this plugin for Firefox has changed my experience watching YouTube: addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

- No cluttered interface
- No ridiculous recommendations
- No more ridiculous comment section
and above all, NO COOKIE OR FUCKING "PLEASE LOG IN" BANNERS ANYMORE

Simple, clean video playback, and it doesn't set a large amount of cookies, which you can easily block because they're all first-party
