Some reporting from Variety on YouTube starting to hide dislike counts. They’re citing creator harassment as a key reason. Do you think this will curb some of those things? What’s your take on things like this and Instagram hiding “like” counts?

I don’t really see how this decision changes anything. People can still like or dislike things and the creator can still see those counts. If people are spam disliking a piece of content I think it would be fairly obvious that is what is happening. Personally I find comments are more detrimental than like counts.
