YouTube blames ad blockers for slow load times, and it has nothing to do with your browser | The delay is intentional, but targeting users who continue using ad blockers, and not tied to any browse…::YouTube has clarified in a statement that users who use ad blockers will have a suboptimal experience regardless of their browser.

        Well, I have quite strong “anti spam filters” IRL. I often don’t even notice there are adverts around me or commercials in radio/television running somewhere in background. But youtube? Holy hell that’s another story. I just hate it when there are 5 unskippable 1+ minute ads in 10 minute video. It’s retarded and the only effect it has on me is I start to boycot the product/brand/service I see there.
