I have over 26000 subscribers and 18 million views on just one of my YouTube channels, I also have other channels that I was forced to set up due to YouTube disabling features like uploading long videos on my main channel. I have over 200 video and the vast majority are made by me. I have put years of work in to building up a following and adding new original material.
Then Google come along like a giant Pacman and attempt to eat me and my work up along with many others. They replace the YOU in YouTube with corporate made junk not realizing the lack of corporate made junk is what attracted people to YouTube in the first place. I have lost about 30 subscribers this week, that is what happens my subs go up and up and then suddenly I lose loads in one day. My subscriber count has not changed for about two years. Its like Google thought “fuck him, he ain’t having anymore subscribers.”
My earnings are pathetic but simply pissing Google off is a good enough reward, I suppose. Is this how Google treat all their creators? I can’t wait for the day that Google the giant greedy parasite of the Internet choke on their own greed.
Who the fuck are Google, Facebook, the government or anybody for that matter to chose what we can read and watch. YouTube has been censored for years, every year censorship on the Internet is increased and every year we lose a little more freedom. It is surely time to reverse the tide.
