Another thing I hate, is this: I know tons of people who have smaller scale YouTube channels, but they are still people that speak the so-called truth, their opinions, or whatever you prefer to brand it as. But if you post their videos to any dope forum full of elitists, they then act as if a YouTuber with less than 100 subs has no "credibility" to speak of. They talk about all the big YouTubers like they are the gods of everything online. Yet I'm quite sure they're likely just paid shills, who are granted early access copies to plug stuff.
On forums, it's largely the same song and dance. People kiss up to a higher power. I do consider YouTube to be a kind of forum like any other public BBS anyway. After all, you're just expressing your views, and you may post comments underneath the darn video.
I got banned on Silent Hill Heaven about 2 years ago, because I talked about how RE7 was disappointing, and I said the RE Engine wasn't that great. One guy was getting stroppy with me. At the time, I told him to drop it. Then I got banned. That forum is run by somebody who is herself a shill. She blogs for some garbage gaming sites, and I'm sure she writes for NeoGAF as well or maybe GameSpot, so of course they're not gonna appreciate any honesty.
