>>3863>A lot of people were complaining about youtube embeds tracking IPs.
1. "Lazy loading" youtube embeds should not track any IP address unless one voluntarily clicks the thumbnail to load the video.
2. Why not let board owners decide whether this option of lazy loading youtube embeds should be allowed as a toggleable option in account.js? If a board owner wants his board on your website to have youtube embeds (that can only "track" if voluntarily clicked on), why should his board community be denied this option just because of a paranoid vocal minority screeching about the CIA and illuminati spying on those who click on Youtube embeds? Here's an idea: if you don't like google tracking you from youtube, don't click the youtube thumbnail.
