What were some things that were recommended to you by a website that didn't suit your taste or was the complete opposite of what you were interested in?

I get recommend to j-vloggers....like constantly
though it's more of the people that I find annoying rather than the theme of their content

Videos on unexplained deaths on YouTube...
I watched a few them though so that it will stop harassing me every time I log on.

Pro tip: Do not watch at 3:00 a.m.

Ah. I remember a while back, when I was still a teenager, I had some friends who absolutely loved
that guy. I watched some of his stuff when he was on That Guy With the Glasses. I never understood his appeal,
he just seemed like a jerk, but I suppose as a Christian I'm probably outside his demographic.

If you're into games, I have a let's play channel I could recommend.
https://www.youtube.com/user/ManyATrueNerd

I know, I know. Another LP channel. But I do like this one.
The LPer in question has a decent number of self imposed challenge LPs.
Right now, I believe he is playing through Fallout 3. The rule for this playthrough
is that if his 'true life' (His max HP minus all damage he takes through the game) reaches 0, then it's over.
He has already done a run through New Vegas with this rule set.

Edit: Wait, wait... I misunderstood the purpose of the thread... whoops...
I'll leave the above recommendation as a monument to my stupidity.

I get recommended a lot of fanservice click bait on youtube because I follow some LPers who play animesque games. It's very annoying.

Suck it up buttercup

Yeah YouTube recommendations algorithm can be less than perfect. Just because I watched a video on a lock, doesn't mean I want to subscribe to a channel all about lockpicking.

I was told I was good at League of Legends so I should do ranked and so in season 5 (last year) I tried it and absolutely hated it. I'll keep to my unranked games which don't usually have the sweatiest tryhards possible.

you shut you're Fu&%$ng mouth. a group of anything don't all act the same.

I went through a "deep web/dark web" obsession for a few months and then ALL my recommended stuff on youtube was just dead people sites, and serial killer/ghost stuff.

Youtube's recommendations are often terrible. I tend to watch a lot of NASA and space-related stuff, and then it thinks I want to see UFO/conspiracy/Area 51 crap. Ugh, not interested.
