All five silent, motion video ads are identical [not clicking learn more].

I think they're onto me. Speedway ads are following me to Youtube.


edit:
Further to emojis. There's a major scandal on Youtube with scammers taking over Youtube accounts, destroying the backcatalog and subscriber lists, and then harvesting some ad revenue and abandoning it.

I'd always wondered if you could pick your advertisers on Youtube. It turns out that's a vector for [a fatal] infection.

Anyway, it turns out the creators try to fight back by voting with emojis (green paddle/red paddle) in the comments. Youtube is banning people for voting and locking them out of the gMail accounts.

If I'm reading this wrong let me know.

Can we add a Pepe/Clownface emoji to the vBulletin set?
