An Open Letter to YouTube from JJ McCartney:
An open letter to YouTube:
To whom it may concern,
In the past three weeks, I have been under persistent attacks from a hostile and obscene Youtube user who has been flagrantly violating YouTube's policies by setting up numerous dummy accounts and launching foul-mouthed tirades in my live chat room during my daily show.
This same individual has been launching repeated attacks by using those dummy accounts to thumbs-down my videos and to lodge bogus complaints about the content of my shows, which has on numerous occasions resulted in my videos being labeled as not advertiser-friendly.
I have asked for, on each occasion I have tried to send feedback, at least an acknowledgement that you are receiving my messages, as yet to no avail whatsoever.
I am not a crazed lunatic, and I do not want to give you the impression that I am a squeaky wheel...but I would greatly appreciate it if you spent as much time chasing down these kinds of issues with people who flagrantly violate your rules and conditions, and less time trying to find reasons to nullify monetization of my videos. I have been working very hard to build audience and to deliver compelling programs, and when monetization decisions seem to be based on little more than capricious arbitrary coin-flips, it defeats the purpose.
My last four videos have been flagged as not advert. friendly, and that is absolute bogus baloney!!
I do not earn much money from my videos, not nearly enough to meet my monthly expenses, but when you make these kinds of determinations, without any kind of explanation at all, it leaves me seriously contemplating shifting to other platforms and ceasing to be a patron of your services.
There was a time when all viewpoints were welcome, and even the more looney people could at least get a fair shake.
But what you have chosen to do with monetization is absolutely unfair, unAmerican, and malevolent toward people with legitimate points of view.
I know this is happening rampantly across YouTube, to conservative programs. Political correctness has become the tool of the modern-day version of Caesar, King George III and Genghis Khan. The righteous peasants stand no chance in this insane culture.
OK...END OF YOUTUBE COMMUNIQUE.
Just one note for all of you who listen to conservative talk radio on the Internet on any platform: It would be a very good idea for all of you to purchase a good short wave radio soon. Soon, we may have to revert to the days when patriots got their news from a Philco or a Zenith or a Westinghouse tube radio.
Should events unfold that make conventional communication impossible, it will be up to a few of us to keep the truth streaming into the open airwaves.
I pledge to do whatever I can to keep that pipeline open and should that day arrive sooner than we think, then please keep scanning the short wave frequencies. They may be our last line of communication.
God be with you all.
