* CreatorBacklash: The uploader of the first video on Youtube, jawed, didn't seem happy with Google Plus' integration into Youtube, with comments such as "why the [[PrecisionFStrike fuck]] do i need a google+ account to comment on a video?" and "I can't comment here anymore, since I don't want a google+ account.".
* WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings: The founders [[WordOfGod reportedly said]] in several interviews that they sold the website off because of hordes of teenagers[[note]]the aforementioned users[[/note]] uploading copyrighted material on it (instead of making their own videos) and ignoring its rules, thus destroying their dream for a ''you''tube.
** This came to bite them in the ass all those years later, when Google+ became mandatory and they asked why the hell they were being forced into this.
