Bots/Aggregators/Etc. Discussion On YouTube

The “non-human” website account stuff has gone to YouTube.

Since discussing this problem on here and posting this video on YouTube, I’ve pruned numerous inactive, organizational, spammer, sub-for-sub, and other accounts that do not correspond to actual human beings who actually give a crap about what I do on that site.  There’ll probably be more later on.  If I can figure out how to do that on here I could take a look as well, but I imagine on WordPress the bigger problem here would be aggregators where “re-bloggers” whose entire blog consists of re-blogs from someone else subscribe to everything in sight just to have material to re-blog, but I think YouTube’s probably the bigger problem right now with the massive and widening gap between subscribers and video views on most channels, and YouTube completely dodging this problem in their press releases and instead engineering things on that site to make the problem worse.  😛
