as if censoring people as an arm of the biden administration in exchange for major tax breaks wasn't enough

Open two tabs.

Sign in to one.

Refresh the other tab.

Sign out of the first tab.

The content you want to see should still be there on the other tab.

Click on what you want to see and it's lets you as a guest.

Doesn't viewing as a guest limit your access to "mature" content?

What browser and ad blocker are you using?
Were you signed into YouTube when it happened?
I've never seen anything like that.

I'm always signed in.
Browser: Firefox Developer Edition
Ad blocker: AdblockPlus
Also: Ghostery

No ads. No popups. No TOS messages from YouTube.

I think they just hate you?

Okay... Now firefox + ublock works again.

I'm not getting any warnings.

Ok quick update.

Your set up works fine for me.Videos run with me signed in and no ads but.......

If I open a second tab with youtube it then blocks me.

Weird but it does seem to work with just one tab.

Many thanks for offering your set up,

Odinson

Still no issues with firefox desktop youtube..

Maybe youtube backed down...

That's still odd; I quite often have more than one YouTube tab open (I'll go through the recommends and open the ones I want to watch in their own tabs, then close the initial tab and watch the clips I picked one after another).

Aside from comparing our FF Settings to identify any differences I don't know what else would do that.

Only Reaps could apparently piss off either an entire video sharing site or team of browser developers.

While the temptation to defeat YouTurd's increasingly onerous requirements does give one a certain smug satisfaction, I also kind of realise that the best way forward is to simply not watch it at all, getting my daily content from other sites.

I barely use YouTurd these days, unless it is to dig out something for the "what are you rocking out to" kind of threads. And very VERY infrequently, to watch some content creator that still hasn't got the memo and decamped to somewhere like Locals, Rumble or Bitchute.

YouTurd signed their death warrant when they partnered with the Lamestream media in preference to independent commentators. Fuck 'em.
Her fucking fupa looked like a pair of ass cheeks... like someone naked ran into her head first and got stuck. She was like "come eat me out" and I was like "nah I think I'll go snort some anthrax and light myself on fire instead"

I would love to put YouTube in my "Stuff I Used To Do" bin and I've felt that way since Google absorbed them into its blob of subsidiaries and cutouts.

To that end I've already mirrored my Misc.Derbis videos to Rumble and will continue to do so. I've even considered starting to post them only on Rumble but the sad truth is they don't (yet) have the reach that YouTube does, nor as wide a variety of content when I have the time to watch clips.

Here's to the day YouTube deservedly becomes superfluous.

Whatever complaint people have about YT, it does offer variety.
