    What is this shit?!? According to the Wiki:

    I've emailed him to see what's going on. The only link I could see on what's left of his page was to this video, so it looks like some sort of feud between content creators and You Tube.

    i didnt know he was putting vids up on youtube.
    most of his hosting was by screwattack.
    i think now like many others "banned" from youtube, theyre hosting vids from their own websites now.

    theres far worse shit on youtube than avgn and similar trash talking ppl.
    has to be about money, its always about money.

    RedLetterMedia and CraigTube have had similar problems with YouTube. Between this and all the blocking they're doing with content on TV devices, it just seems like they're going out of their way to piss people off.

    Money and liability. Win or lose, the lawyers always walk away with all the money. Most companies settle claims just to stop losing money to the lawyers.

    What is this guy bitching about? He lost subscribers that no longer use youtube. Why is that a bad thing, I don't get it....

    I don't use youtube nearly as much as I used to. Mainly because it just plain sucks now. Navigation and searches are a pain in the ass and the
    amount of commercials are unbearable.

    i remember when "suggestions" to the right actually had SOME relevancy to the video youre currently watching.

    youtube is garbage and ive been saying it forever.
    i understand times change, but c'mon

    I agree. When I search for a vid, I want a list of what I want to see, not what they want me to see. This is an integral part of what I was refering to when I said: "amount of commercials are unbearable". Forcing the promoted vids is the same as an ad imho.

    Google is starting to come unraveled. I pretty much saw this starting, when they started cancelling all those "unnecessary" projects, which meant the engineers lost control of the company to the manager types.

    As soon as this guy shows up, the things that made companies like Google and Hewlet Packard great go out the window, as folks with Harvard Business Degrees, which taught them how to speak "business speak" and pretty much nothing else, manage to "manage" these companies into the ground.

    So, are we all ready to head back to Yahoo or Bing, and stick our videos someplace like Vimeo yet? :D

    I am. I just now deleted my Youtube/google accounts. Why you ask?
    I just got an email saying that there was a comment on one of my vids. It was a lure, the comment was 6 months old. Instead, I was redirected to a notice that my account with youtube and
    Gmail/google was going to be displayed as my real whole first and last name. WTF!!!??? If I'd have wanted to display my whole real name to the world, I'd have taken the account(s) in my real name. Anonymity is totally gone.
    I'm done with google. Fuckem in the ass running sideways.

    There was no option to not display whole name, that's what I'm getting at dudes.
    I opted out 6 months ago and now I'm not given a choice in the matter?
    Therefore....no more youtube/google for me.

    Same here, and I'm on the membership tier that allows for monetization.
