Now on to another topic. I am kind of bummed out today and this time it is something other than my ever-growing disenchantment toward my job at Wally World. Today, I found out that one of my most loyal subscribers on YouTube decided to delete her account on account of being harrassed by “haters.” This is nothing new to YouTubers and it doesn’t seem likely to end anytime soon. I have seen videos from users saying that they were leaving because of comments left by haters.
As a person gets more popular on YouTube, the more likely they are to encounter haters. They are usually people who don’t have videos up but exist only to harrass others who are being creative and contributing to the Internet. In fact, the very definition of a hater is that a hater is a person who tries to bring down a person because they are jealous of another person’s success in terms of creativity. I have encountered a few myself on YouTube and got one hateful comment during my first outing on BlogTV back in July. The thing is that it is easier to deal with haters online than it is off. All you need to do is first block the user who sent it and then delete the comment. Other people use the haters as fuel to keep going and some even abuse the hater right back.
While I am sorry to see my friend leave YouTube, I am going to continue making videos. I’m on YouTube to stay and I ain’t never leaving.
And on a lighter note, hope you like the new pic I took yesterday. I was just showing off my new hat. I think the skull and crossbones thing suits my character.
