Some MAGA asshole built a website dedicated solely to tracking the removal of dislikes on Biden White House YouTube videos

The about page of 81m.org says “Such a popular president should have some truly epic YouTube numbers. Let’s keep track. I’m sure we won’t see anything weird happening, such as dislikes being thrown out in the wee hours of the morning” and what’s interesting is that a development hobbyist with the skill necessary to configure such a website and an active listener also lacks the imagination to conceive of how and why a platform owned and operated by the most powerful tech company in the world removes these downvotes.

That they wouldn’t, for example, be able to loop through the accounts of users who clicked dislike and use their own criteria to determine whether or not the user actually watched the video, or even physically clicked “dislike” with a human hand, rather than coded a bot to run something like, say,$(document).ready(function(){$("#channelURL").href.split("/")[-1] === "White-House-Official" ? $(".dislike").click() : ""})from 4,000 different accounts simultaneously.

That tech companies aren’t going to use their talent and resources to make an effort – albeit a scattershot one – to beat back the proliferation of the said actors and propagandists exploiting weaknesses to assert undue influence over political discourse and cause chaos by – for example – making it appear as if a lot more Americans hate Joe Biden than actually do.

That taking too much Adderall causes manic, all-consuming tunnel vision rendering one incapable of conceiving of any other motivation of other actors than the one first ascribed when this obsessive quest to “expose” the alleged perfidy of YouTube, Google, Biden, Democrats, etc began.

None of that crossed the unnamed 81m.org developer’s mind, because Trump fanboys see every attempt by “the establishment” to combat bad faith as bad faith in and of itself. This site here is actually about as pure-cut of an example as you can find of that phenomena. Hats off to you, the fucking weirdo who built this site, whoever you are.
