As a lot of YouTube's recent controversies, match up to the once popular MySpace site & within four years they had lost the majority of original users.
If you happen to look at the examples listed in that link there. Which is getting me and prob many others thinking, that YT will end up like MySpace in time.
Due to them being seemly unable to deal with this, if $ wasn't involved & having Google in their corner, YT would off lost out to Twitch long ago. Since that was one of many reasons, may MySpace became a ghost town.
Not to mention the unnecessary censorship, top stars leaving, promoting offensive groups as well as illegal actives.
