While watching some video on youtube today I noticed on my youtube home page there were several suggested diaper-related videos. That by itself wasn't directly bothering me because they're easy to explain off usually since it's a machine trying to pick something for you.
BUT it also says by the video, "Because you watched" and a link to the video that inspired the suggestion. OK those need to go away. So I go to my account and video history and clear it. Shows 0 now. Back to home page. Still full of suggestions and "Because you watched".
So some googling for the problem. Yep, known issue. 1/3 of them are suggesting going to the main page and disabling modules. These are all old posts, guessing that's been removed. I can't find it anymore.
1/3 of them are saying to clear cookies. That logged me out of youtube, but as soon as I logged back in, the suggestions were back with links from history. Other threads suggest that the video history is stored in the google account anyway so that was a waste of time, it would show them up on any computer I logged into youtube on.
The last 1/3 of the threads told me I'm just screwed and the only way to make them go away is to delete my account. Lovely.
So, anyone have any other suggestions? I thought turning on Private Browsing was sufficient, I do that for here, but it'll be hard for me to get into a habit of logging out of google all the time too. And that's not going to fix the mess that's already present. I watched a lot of videos today and it didn't flush the videos off my main page. Anyone have any ideas?
