Yeah, the view counter is a clear case where they've gone too far. People care about view counts and it seems like every other video I watch has people complaining in the comments about the view count being obviously wrong.

The only time I notice this is when the view counts freeze at 300-ish for a few hours. That's because they're checking if the views are legit or from a bot, IIRC.
