Youtube "recommended video" crap...

I watched a video on Youtube regarding a news broadcast in my old neighborhood regarding an MVA and now my Youtube homepage if filled with "recommended videos" regarding MVAs, people getting run over, motorcycle wrecks, plane crashes, etc. and now I can't get rid of that crap. Anyone? Thanks. HH

clearing your youtube viewing history might do it?

That's the boat I'm in. I Youtube searched on the Youtube searchbar, "kid hit by truck in...." and now have nothing but videos of people getting splattered on my Youtube homepage under "recommended videos." As far as I can tell, clearing the history doesn't do it...you need to delete your Youtube account. This is something I cannot do because I have horses for sale whose videos are on Youtube. HH

Did you try deleting your cookies and youtube history and see if that helps after you tell it to not remember your history?
