Youtube is testing the removal of visibility of the dislike number on a video (Conspiracy / Strange)

So you can still thumbs down a video but ONLY the uploader of that video can see the number of people that have disliked it :-justno

The only number you'll be able to see is how many people liked the video.

And this is done supposedly to protect the uploader :-roll even though the uploader has the ability to disable comments and the like/dislike buttons. It just doesn't make sense.

You don't even have to disable the ratings you have the option to make the ratings numbers not visible yet people can still thumbs up and down and the uploader can see the numbers.

This change is being pushed in the background by the big corporations like Disney because they can't take people down voting the shit they make.

How is it protecting the weak mind of the uploader if the uploader can still see the total number of down votes?

And if it's done to stop mass coordinated down voting campaigns then the thumbs up rating should also be invisible because it has already been proven that mass coordinated paid-for up voting from farms in India and bots is also a thing. So if Youtube are doing this due to manipulation of the thumbs down button they also should be doing it to the thumbs up button, just get rid of the rating system completely if that's the case.

Why bother having a rating system at all if peoples fragile minds can't take it. What is the point in seeing the up vote tally if you can't judge it against the down vote tally. They may as well just scrap the whole of it.
