I had a rather peculiar response from a YouTube user called; “Cebeach”. I was surprised that someone whose intellect I normally respect could make errors of such magnitude.
He did a response to my mention of a YouTube user who had (openly) called my producer at the time a; “nigger-servant”. As this user’s material was on AVFM I felt it would be a good opportunity for AVFM staff & followers to comment on this blatant racism and help establish that they are anti-racist (the MRA in general has an image problem when it comes to the race issue).
Dean Esmay, managing editor for AVFM offered an excellent response to the issue and expressed a professional level of concern that was heartening.
But then there were some of the others, like Beach.
The biggest flaw (of the many) in your post is that Google does not own wordpress.
“… to play off of that to get the controversy going for some of that sweet, sweet, Google lucre. ”
Is demonstrably wrong. Please, don’t take my word for it, check the records of ownership for WordPress yourself. It’s owned by Automattic, inc.
So accusing me of attempting to get “Google Lucre” for a 7 second mention of my blog halfway into an 8 minute video is just strange, even for you.
Especially since my blog isn’t set up for any sort of revenue sharing at all.
Considering that a brief look at analytics (which is easily accessible to all who want to bother to do the simplest of research with a click of the mouse) shows that viewership on videos I do in that style drop off 90% within the first 15 seconds of viewing, your accusation is not only in error but also bizarre.
Logically, if I had wanted to earn “Google lucre” from this issue I’d at the least have made mention of it in that first 15 seconds, at most done a video on it because I could then earn “google lucre” by doing that thing known as “revenue sharing on Google’s YouTube”.
This is some pretty weak sauce and a horrifyingly embarrassing response from you.
