    Everyone's getting offended and butthurt. This guy probably lost his google check too.

    No other company scares me more than Google. They've become evil mofos... much more evil than MS ever was.

    When a corporation's motto is "Don't be evil" you can be pretty damn sure that they are evil.

    Anyone that depends entirely on another entity (YouTube, eBay) for their living are idiots.

    True… and I bet this guy was getting at least $2-3k / month from YT. YT is serious business for a lot of people. Once you go over 30,000 subs, you can make some serious money.

    Guy makes some good points. If I 'subscribed' to anything, I'd probably add him, too.

    well, you said anyone who depends on another entity to make a living is an idiot, so someone who depends on GE for their paycheck is an idiot--no?

    That really is bullshit, everything he said in this video was spot on. I used to check his channel out every so often. He was pretty funny and had over 100k subscribers.

    Fucking amen. I suspect I'm not the only one whose YouTube viewing experience went to shit shortly after Google made their purchase. You could see the writing on the wall as soon as they started forcing everyone to tie in their YouTube user profile with a Google account. What utter bullshit.

    First of all, that guy is a tool. I hate all this retarded "vlog" shit on youtube. No one gives a fuck. Shut the fuck up.

    That guy should host his own videos if he wants to broadcast unregulated content. If you rely on advertisers, of course they will the ones setting the rules.

    God, your personality is repellent. Every time I see one of your posts it's you fighting with someone like a lightweight drunk who barges into a conversation after two mimosas.

    Actually, you remind me of mother. I don't like mother very much...

    Well, someone must give a fuck. Apparently he has more viewers than Howard has listeners.

    No doubt - Howard will probably want a cut of any dough that Sal and Richard may make if their cooking videos get some traffic.

    Between the Google ad money as well as cuts from the 'discount codes' from sponsors that provide free products for review, it can be a decent source of money for some.

    Still, that shit is annoying.

    Retarded shit like this gets over 15 million views... I just don't get it.
