YouTube Follies

Has anybody noticed that YouTube has removed "sort by rating" and "sort by views" functionality? They've kept "date" (i.e. "sort from most recent") searching, but YouTube seems to be bucking for their own destruction. What are they gonna do next? Start filtering copyrighted content?

I think at that point we can all expect YouTube stock to start diving, unless YouTube doesn't have its own stock, in which case we all expect our brokers to start handing us null point exception errors.

When I start doing stuff like this, I know that it's time for bed.


  1. Found this post after googleing for a workaround for this problem. Without sort by views, youtube is basically useless. What the heck were they thinking?

  2. I've heard since that it may be related to an FBI investigation regarding children uploading fighting videos.

    I can't for the life of me figure out how the two things could be connected, though I don't have the technical training to guess either way. If this continues, the world will move onto something else. It may take a couple of years, but it'll happen.
