A video hosting website.
It used to be great, but Google took it over, removed video responses, fucked up comments and left the service in shambles.
/tag/youtube has a lot of stuff
- YouTube comments don't have line breaks
- YouTube RSS feeds
- 2019-02-17 -- I have YouTube comments emailed to my Gmail account. Today I found one put into my spam folder. It was not spam. It wasn't anything even close to spam.
- 2009-07-15 -- The quicklist has a limit of 100, at least when not logged-in. When you add additional videos, they silently knock videos off of that stack.
(date not recorded) -- If you change the top-left country code thing, make damned sure you close out of any other youtube tab. Funny things will happen if you don't. For example, uploaded videos will fail.
