The problem is that he’s so fully stocked his audience with loud far-right madmen that the challenge of moving on from them may be insurmountableunprofitable.

Fixed.

I find it shocking that the printer hacker. Giraffe was lumped in with the New Zealand shooter. Here is a cast on the whole incident. well worth the listen https://darknetdiaries.com/episode/31/

All of the garbage going on all around the world with, on, and because of Youtube, Facebook, and other sharing/streaming operations should surprise no one who understands engineering. Youtube algorithms and policies reward click counts without regard to the nature of the content that draws the clicks. That encourages the makers to keep pushing more and more. It’s positive feedback. And any engineer can tell you that you can’t control a system with positive feedback. Such feedback will cause any system to oscillate wildly out of control and eventually self-destruct.

It works the same way in the minds of weak-minded jerks who sell themselves for attention. This “PewDiePie” clod didn’t give a rat who gave him praise and clicks as long as he got them. He knew his garbage fuels the fires of racism and hatred, and he didn’t care because having people - even worthless people - pay attention to him gave him an ego-hard. If the theory of karma is correct and he gets what he deserves, he’ll spend eternity as a roll of paper in the toilet of Hell.

There’s a word for people who espouse racist beliefs ironically, even if they don’t believe in them. It’s :“fvcking racist.”

cause you can say “fucking” here if it is appropriate and if referring to the asshole in question of this topic it is appropriate.

I’ve gotten used to typing it that way, because there are a lot of sites with word filters or prudish mods.
