When you visit Redbox, do you expect it to show you only DVDs you like?
Lol. Still COULD be an option for those who will NEVER watch that junk.

These are not hard and fast rules.

If the Netflix 'program' or 'application' can decide what kind of movies people like by shows watched or/ratings then I don't know what the problem is.

Its 2017. Its about choice.

Dude...are you like 100? Seriously, just search for stuff you like and Netflix will start suggesting things similar to it and before you know all of the "junk" you don't want to see won't be there.

Reading this thread is like hitting your head against a brick wall. Over and over.

Some people will never get it.

Just like how I can delete programs and files on a computer.
Again, Netflix has over 100,000 titles. Assuming that you had no interest in half those titles (which is probably a vast underestimate) and assuming it takes you 10 seconds on average of considering each title to determine whether or not you like it (given load times, really no more time than scanning the title and looking at the title-image - again, probably a serious underestimate of the time actually required), then it would take you an entire month of 12-hour days working seven-days/week to delete those titles.

Netflix probably assumes that no one is insane enough to want to do that. Besides that, as a business model it would make zero sense for Netflix to allow users to permanently disable their ability to see certain titles.

What part of THIS IS HOW THE NORMAL WORLD FUNCTIONS do you not understand?
