But it's not Colbert's video mocking the "walkaway" thing, which goes against your argument that they are pushing Colbert's video.
Why is it always necessary to explain your own posts to you three times over before you even get the foggiest idea of what you just posted?
You said that you went to YouTube and searched for a walkaway video and Stephen Colbert's video making fun of it was the first one that came up. That sent you into accusations of YouTube fixing things, even though Stephen Colbert is a lot more popular than this walkaway phenomenon.
I said I searched YouTube for "walkaway" and did not get Stephen Colbert's video, and showed a screenshot proving it.
Then you said:
I did a search for "mocking #walkaway" and another for "#walkaway myth" and on neither of those searches, did the Colbert video show up.
. Okay, that's three different search terms for the walkaway thing, my "walkaway", and your "mocking #walkaway" and "#walkaway myth", where Colbert's video did NOT appear. If YouTube is trying to fix it so that Colbert's video appears when you want a video about walkaway, they sure seem to be doing a lousy job of it. Most search terms don't show the Colbert video.
Only then did you say,
It helps if you actually do the proper search: #walkaway
I respond that if YouTube was fixing the search so that if you want to see a video about "walkaway" you get Colbert's video pushed on you, then they would make their algorithm so that Stephen Colbert's video would come up first on all or most search terms. Instead, even you admit that Colbert's video didn't come up on most search terms you tried, only under one
search term, #walkaway, does Colbert's video appear.
As a computer expert, I'm sure you will agree that YouTube has the expertise to fix it so that any video that YouTube might favor will appear under an infinite variety of search terms. Therefore, the fact that the popular Colbert video on the subject, using only one specific search term, (but no others), clearly indicates that YouTube is not fixing it for Colbert's video to appear at all. You are trying to play "victim" with absolutely no evidence to back you up.
The video just came up first on your one specific search term because Colbert is a hell of a lot more popular than this "walkaway" thing, that's all.
