Pet Peeve... If you are a creator, you are largely doing technical content, and the channel is not about your personality. Then I don't want to see your stupid face. I want to see technical info like text, graphics and block diagrams. I don't exactly know why this bothers me, but it does.

    They’re just playing the game of getting views to get more money. If monkeh did not click on YouTube thumbnails with dumb O faces, people would stop using them. Same for seeing a human on the screen.

    I wonder which channels triggered this rant

    @electrineer it was a Godot video. But the angst has been building for a while.

    @jestdotty it mostly depends on how viewers engage with the content, i.e. if users click the stupid face in thumbnail and watch the whole video, it will get boosted.
