- Man this took
forever because I didn't care. LOL.
- So back in, wow -
November of 2019? Lemme get the link...
- Oh, yeah, of
course it's locked. My stalker got my YouTube channel
removed. The irony however, is that in
DOING that, it forced me to monetize (more on
that in a second) and when he also then erased me from
wikipedia, that actually pushed me to find the
Guinness Book of World Records entry and is the only
reason I have that plaque in my office. Crazy, right?
His two attempts at hurting me just made good shit
happen. Way to go, Karma. But still, fuck that guy.
Can't wait to hear that he has died. Like seriously,
will do a joyful entry and if he is actually murdered
I will be OFFENDED if the police don't question me.
Granted, it's a long list, but I had BETTER be
UP THERE. Heh.
- So, yes this
happened a long time ago and what I realized as I went
through all my contacts (some of whom even work at
Google/YouTube) is that if you're not a monetized
channel they have no fucks to give you when this
happens. Yup, anyone can claim a copyright issue, get
your channel REMOVED and it's all done by computer
with no human involvement. Which meant this stalker
could claim his harassing phone call to me was
something he wrote, therefore I'm stealing
- I'll say this -
- In the end, it was
just a week or so and it was cleared up, but it made
me realize that I can't put everything in the hands of
- Now, the question
has to be - why on earth are you not monetized? Well,
because I don't want to be. I don't want to care about
that. This isn't a job for me, it's therapy. And the
moment I do ANY videos for profit? I've lost the whole
point of this site. It simply isn't how
I operate. I've avoided if for 15 years because
of that. But after being ignored while getting
railroaded by a stalker, it's clear I do at least
have to play the game and turn on that
- So I went through
everything and then never received the physical mail
to my address that's supposed to come. I waited for a
year. Nada. I also couldn't find anyone to talk to
about it not arriving. Granted, didn't push it much,
but two FULL YEARS passed and I thought of it
again (probably thanks to the Guinness stuff) and I
found a page that would resend the mailed
verification. This time it arrived super fast and I
finally got it all set up this week. So now, every
video is at least monetized. It will mean absolutely
no money for me, but when I find the time to actually
push The Journey and being the first vlogger... at
least the foundation is there.
- Goddamn I need
someone to manage all this shit.
- Anyway, the studio
is comin' along and I recorded this...
- Heh. Don's coming
over this week so I'll get to try out my camera
set-ups. Trying to make it so the whole room is
covered when people come by to jam, whatnot - so I
don't have to really thing about it. Easier said than
done of course.
- Anyway, that's why
I'm monetized even though I don't really want to and
haven't pushed for subscribers or views.
