Google is currently on witchhunt for alternative #YouTube frontends: They target the services as well as their users.

In the last week, #Invidious instances first got IP banned, and once that was circumvented stopped via heavy rate limits.

Now they manage to associate #NewPipe users with google accounts somehow, and suspend these accounts:

Now that these frontends got #Google's attention, I don't think we can sustain this cat & mouse game for long. 😔

i think they know that if they fought them too hard, people would eventually leave youtube.

No they don't, "people" don't care.
