I’m just glad the commercials don’t interrupt when I’m watching pornhub!

I really hate it when Youtube injects two ads into the middle of an embedded disc golf ad. I wanna hear what Danny/Uli/Kona, etc. is telling me to buy.

The reason for the increase in ads is to get subscribers:

I hate the ads, too.

...but it the amount of content that we can access 24/7 without additional money out of pocket is unbelievable. I've saved so much money learning to fix things. I've probably make tens of thousands of dollars from what I've learned watching excel and project management software tutorials, etc, etc, etc.

Pay for premium or hit skip ads every couple minutes.

Yep. Hitting skip ads has become 2nd nature to me.

...but every so often, they force a some ads down your throat where skipping them's not even an option.

I mean it's not any worse than TV networks.


That said, I've ve become so used to watching stuff from my DVR and feeding through commercials, that's it's kinda painful to actually have to sit through ads when I'm watching live TV.

I remember waiting for ads to take a leak.
Those days are gone.

I must agree with the above. I will accept the commercials for the tutorials I occasionally watch. I just won't be viewing Youtube for pleasure.
