    It's the middle of 2020. Can we get videos to process a bit faster than a 1:10 ratio? And maybe a **** progress bar? Come on.

    Even better, create your own in-house CAPTCHA. It prevents a third party from tracking or identifying the user in any way and can be fairly simple to implement. For example, a CAPTCHA can generate two analog clocks and request the user to enter the time shown on each. Or "enter the time that is displayed on the analog clock which is the latest".J

    This is what other secure/private services do, to eliminate Google (and Google dependence) from the equation.

    The inability to limit account creation and spam is the price of existing on the internet. It's just the way things work. It isn't much more difficult to create infinite phone numbers that can be checked for SMS than it is to generate infinite email addresses. There are literally free services where you can get a phone number in any state in the country and use it for SMS authentication. Preventing multiple accounts for one phone number would negatively impact people who have reasonable purposes for doing so while not actually preventing untoward people from doing anything.

    We’re reviewing this. Curious how long you think would be ok.

    I created an account many years ago using my real name. A first name that literally only about 36 people on the planet have. Damned if I can figure out my credentials or the address that was used. It'd be wonderful to have that account recycled so I can pick it back up.

    That said, it should be a very generous time period and a notification should be sent to the address on the account something like 90, 60, 30, 7, and 1 day before killing the account. There should also be an option to mark an account as "deceased" or something, so that the account can't just be recycled if the person has passed away (imagine if your entire identity online is usurped by someone some day, simply because you passed). It'd also be great to designate a backup emergency person who can be notified after a lot of inactivity that can be granted a method to access the account on behalf of the user (just like Google and other services do).
