I have already published an article a while back about how YouTube’s practices are terrible in terms of content creators with the classical slogan of “Where’s the fair use?” Now for those who care you can check out that article before this one. But normally a company that does something inherently flawed and against its content creator base would attempt to fix the problem they started. At least I thought that was happening due to the last copyright claim that we fought (and won) on YouTube. But YouTube has decided instead of cooling down the situation that instead they’re going to add some gasoline to the mix!
This time around we are going to be plugin reviewing; The very force that drives every WordPress site out on the internet. Instead of URL pointing you over to WordPress to show you each and every one of my entries thus-far. We have taken all of the reviews and slammed them all in this posting. Understand the reviews stated here are only a reflection of the people that run this site and do not reflection the opinions of everyone in the entire WordPress community.
Read on if you want see the ranting diatribe that we call our opinion.
Lets go into further Detail as to why we “walked away” from YouTube.
YouTube at the time of this posting is the number 1 video service that the entire internet goes to for all of it’s user created content media needs. There was a time where even I used it. I have now host almost all of my video blogs locally. This decision was mostly for a different problem dealing with links dying/moving around. But lately another problem has come up dealing with a tactic known as “Content Citation.” YouTube even hit me over a demonstration video we wanted to show to people who responded to this blog. That one of my hacks indeed does work.
Your thought is public domain the moment it comes from your mouth!
I would like to say one very short message about thought control. In many fandom’s a message that seems to cause a bit of drama in the artistic community and to me is the biggest level of lazy “Henny Penny” entitlement mentality and it’s vastly disturbing. The sentiment is as follows:
Hello denizens of the internet! You are probably wondering why are you seeing this page instead of that magical download file button aren’t you? You have receiving this page instead of the binary because external web-sites, forums and YouTube content creators are trying to hot-link to files on my site while taking credit for hosting them. If you are the 3rd party which made the link. Here is what you can do to correct the problem:
You could link to the blog containing my binary in an effort to give bloggers like us credit for hosting the file. If you link to the blog and your readers click on the download in that blog. They will receive the file!
You can download and host the binaries themselves through whatever freeware mal-ware infested pay-per-click based hosting service there is.
If you DO care about your readers/subscribers like we do; You could host your own binaries by paying for a hosting service. Many of the binaries i mention in blog articles are not owned by us. They exist simply as a convenience for others who visit my blog articles.
To any readers seeing this page we apologize for not giving you the binary but these actions are necessary as we are blog. Not a file distribution service.
NOTE: In the event you are seeing this page even after visiting one of our articles containing binary files. Contact us! as it may be a security error with the site.
