Hot take (privacy) 

It's nice to occasionally have the "bad" (YouTube) algorithms serve me with interesting content to explore outside of my comfort zone, especially when the algorithms contain inaccurate information about my interests.

Well, many (privacy-conscious) humans will argue that this is bad. It is refreshing to be exposed to this. Personally, this helps to stay away from a semi-repetitive lifestyle.

Collecting data is still bad. The algorithms using those data is good.

@Gusted Even collecting is okay, if it is going to be useful to ME. collect-to-sell to others, or collect-to-sell-me-inferior-things, that's the part that sucks.
