Has anyone else gotten a YT poll, asking your age range? I'm talking about those "You can help YouTube" polls that sometimes get inserted before videos.

I've gotten that poll twice, about a month apart. Declined to answer both times.

Apparently my viewing tastes are wide enough to confuse YT, and they need help targeting ads my way. Heh heh.

Either that, or they are so telltale and specific that they want to use your profile to target ads at others.

Probably a mix of both.
