Alec in WILDerland talks about the YouTube comments ban…

01) This Hurts More than a Stupid Comment


“YouTube recently banned all comments on over 200 of our videos. This is my take on the matter and my apology to you guys. We will have more to say on the matter in the coming days.”

I feel really bad for Alec…

…I’m conflicted, on who to hold responsible…

…I mean…I’ve been to various channels, where I’ve seen the exact sorts of comments which YouTube is currently losing it’s mind over…and it’s always left a bit of exasperation in the back of my mind, because…it’s like…”you guys know, this can only serve to cause trouble”…trouble for us MAPs…and you don’t even know, who all that trouble will spread to…

Some of those comments are bound to be plants…from people who’ve wanted to impose their will over YouTube, and it’s users…the busybody zealot sorts, who’ve wanted to force YouTube’s hand, to shut down comments on the accounts of kids [and kid related channels]…And I’ll bet their quite giddy and proud of themselves, right now…

…But, realistically…it cannot be known, how many of these comments were being left, by MAPs who were just being crass and careless.

And, yes…if you have been on YouTube for as long as I have, as a MAP…you know there are insanely paranoid people, absolutely obsessed over getting the comments on these types of channels turned off…It’s been a goal that’s out there, for a number of years…And they’ve managed to find an exploitative way, to push it through.

For the very small “problem” that this is [and who knows how much of it is fake]…they’ve really managed to screw over a large chunk of the YouTube community…and nobody is happy over what has been done to them.

I’ve known about Alec in WILDerland for years…but I’ve never shared his videos on any of my blogs before [and I’ve only rarely watched them]…In fact, as a matter of normal course…I avoid sharing anything from a channel, run by anyone under 18…It’s not that I’m concerned about MAPs who visit this blog…I just know from experience, the kind of crap you run into…whenever you are a MAP who starts taking a positive, constructive interest in a “child” media creator…

I don’t even use my YouTube accounts, to leave comments on YouTube videos, anymore…because the problem is so bad, you cannot even leave the most mundane and innocent of comments, without some devious shit going behind the scenes, to spook people into blocking you…which you might discover a year or two later, when you contemplate checking to see if a young creator is up to anything new…

Yes…there are people on YouTube, who are absolutely pathetic enough to spend their lives doing this…I speak from experience.

If I happen to watch “a kid’s video”…I do so silently…And it’s impossible to do that, if you blog about the video…It’s frustrating, especially when you come across a really great channel like Alec in WILDerland…A lot of their videos would fit perfectly, in a few of my “Frontier” series…Now that he’s an adult…maybe I’ll reconsider, with his channel…Nobody can accuse me of anything, now.
