(no subject)

A story I don't particularly care about, but still find mildly amusing. Youtube announces it will hide the count of dislikes a video has received. I won't even pretend to understand the sentence "smaller creators, and those just getting started with their YouTube channel ... are unfairly targeted by dislike attacks".

From the technical perspective, it's interesting that they are rolling out this change "gradually". Not sure whether this "gradually" means at different times on different platforms, or at different times for different users of the same platform. Understandable if the former; but if the latter, then I wonder why.
