Watching a video on YouTube for the first time in a while, a Skyrim playthrough.

YouTube suggests I watch a few videos with Pepe the Frog on the thumbnail next.

It didn't used to be like this. 😥

I am not signed in to Google, and I use Cookie AutoDelete for Firefox to clear my cookies whenever I leave a tab. I navigated to this YouTuber (a political lefty) via a bookmark. I always use a VPN, etc.

In other words, this is what YT recommends independently of my user profile or the specific orientation of the content creator.

I know everybody knows this stuff already. But I use YT so seldom that I don’t recall the alt-right being recommended before. I feel drained. I loved to watch let’s plays back in the day.
