25 Perfectly Good Things That Just Aren’t What They Used To Be

The key thing in this list is not whether or not the item in question is still messed up. It’s that at some point in the past it got messed up. It may still be messed up, but it may also be fixed. The idea is that it was fine just the way it was and then something happened that made it worse. Of course, this tends to happen with most perfectly good things.

While some of the changes were and are objectively bad, others are more subjective. For example, from a user’s perspective, youtube ads are a bad thing. They get in the way of what we want to see, and they are annoying. From a content producers perspective, youtube ads are a great thing. They generate income and allow people to make a living just creating youtube videos. Of course, in the end, the youtube ads lead to more and better content so they actually help the users as well, but we aren’t considering such indirect and long term effects in our list (as valid as they may be). Without a doubt this means that this list contains a strong element of subjectivity, but c’est la via. These are 25 Perfectly Good Things That Just Aren’t What They Used To Be!
