Recently a lot of YouTube Partners have been complaining about a drop in views and a drop in subscribers. To hear YouTube's explanation of the subscriber drop click here. http://youtubecreator.blogspot.com/2012/05/update-on-subscriber-counts.html Now I support this decision by YouTube, however I have been hearing about some active accounts being unsubscribed. A video about that will be out later this week.

Some people are even posting that this will somehow cause them to stop making videos. Sorry, but I have to call bullwinkle on that. If you won't post videos unless you are popular then perhaps you need to step aside for those of us who realize that life isn't fair and sometimes it takes hard work to get ahead. However I don't intend to claim that everything is perfect and the purpose of this blog is to highlight what I think is not working and what steps YouTube should make to make things better for those of us who post videos.

AsheIsTheRaven doesn't want me talking to people he doesn't like

11 days ago a user known as AsheIsTheRaven began following me on twitter and has been hounding me ever since. Here is the screen shot of his following me date.

He began following me after I uploaded a video of a peaceful skype conversation with Brett Keane, a person who previously had claimed he was doing everything he could to get me kicked off of YouTube and have my AdSense disabled. Here is where I see a sense of Hypocrisy on AsheIsTheRaven's part. One simple glance at his channel, and you will see that he has no problem posting videos about Brett Keane. However his grief is that I had a peaceful skype conversation.

Now in case you are claiming that this was in the past and that AsheIsTheRaven is no longer posting videos about Brett Keane, then why was this video posted 38 minutes ago

Furthermore when you search the words Brett Keane on his channel, 7 videos pop up. Some of these may be due to having Brett Keane in the tags though but it is clear that AsheIsTheRaven has no problem discussing Brett Keane.

So why is AsheIsTheRaven, now known as FatalError404TV promoting Brett Keane and giving him recognition. Why is it that FatalError404TV can make about Brett Keane but I can not have a skype conversation. Furthermore, where was FatalError404TV last month when I was making several videos towards Brett Keane asking him questions. Why did he only get upset when I had a civil discussion with Brett Keane that he all of a sudden go on a tizzyfit.

I later had a discussion with him on BlogTV about this and sadly he was not able to make a valid point other than claim that it was NOT about the skype conversation but yet he was not able to explain why he only got upset when the skype conversation was posted.

Then out of the blue AsheIsTheRaven started tweeting at me again and I eventually logged on to skype attempting to figure out what I had done this time to upset him. Here is our exchange

[11:18:18 PM] Happy Cabbie: I am online if you want to call me
[11:21:04 PM] AsheIsTheRaven: I do not want totalk anymore. Not to you especially. There is no point. You and brett seem to be getting on just dandy, I nearly lost my kid becasue of those two, had you left it alone and IGNORED HIM, a lotof this might hve been avided, inseatd you validated him now leave me alone. Rith is pissed for the right reason, napalm, everyone else. No more games cabbie, real people here, real fucking people and you just cared about bad videos about you. good bye

Where here is my question to you then AsheIsTheRaven, where where you when Brett Keane was threatening my AdSense. Where where you when Brett Keane was threatening to try and flag me down. I will tell you where you were, nowhere. Why should you be. The issue was between Brett Keane and myself and did not concern you. I am not subscribed to you or Brett Keane so obviously I would not be aware of anything going on between you. Brett Keane should not have tried to take your children away from you, I agree, however I don't know the facts on that case. Obviously I wouldn't get involved.

Now when Brett Keane did accuse someone else of child abuse see the blog post here I did know the facts and I called him out on it. As far as me ignoring him I have done nothing more than you or anyone else had been doing at that time. Brett Keane was NOT being ignored as you previously claim on twitter. If you don't believe me all you have to do is ask Napalm and he will tell you that he was making videos almost every day about Brett right up until he closed his channel. Furthermore you posted a video 38 minutes ago.

So if you want to have a peaceful discussion I am more than welcome to speak to you but your childish and selfish behavior is that of a 10 year old who just can't get his way. Rather than conduct yourself as an adult you seem to be content to shout and throw tantrums like a child.

Helping Brett Keane with his image?

Almost everyday I search YouTube for my name to see if any new videos are made. Lo and behold Brett Keane made one to me, basically a follow up from our BlogTV discussion. I can honestly say that Brett Keane is a mystery to me. It is either he completely does not understand why so many people don't like him, or that he chooses to ignore those reasons. Irregardless here is his video and my response

Google+ Hangouts On Air: broadcast your conversation to the world

Today Google announced on their blog http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2012/05/google-hangouts-on-air-broadcast-your.html that users with Google Plus accounts can now begin Livestreaming and even have this stream on their YouTube channel.

This is some good news for those who do not yet have LIVE streaming on their YouTube channel. Previously Google Hangouts were limited to about 10 users but now you can pretty much do a whole show.

Corky Asks a Copyright Question

Well today Corky posted a video addressing the points I made in this blog post. http://happycabbie.blogspot.com/2012/05/alex-jones-and-copyright.html

The original video had embedding turned off. So I had to replace it. If he were to enable embedding I would be more than happy to post his video here. With his videos earning money he is only shooting himself in the foot by disabling embeds. You will find no ads on my copy here.

Well let me answer the questions that Corky asked. Based upon the questions that Corky asked, it is clear to me that he did not read the blog nor did he watch the two videos embedded on there. Irregardless, I have no problem answering questions that I already answered.

Alex Jones and Copyright

My good friend MyRealityBytes alerted me to this video. While I normally take issue with the wild accusations Alex Jones is famous for, much of what he says in this video is accurate. The one thing that is NOT accurate is his claim that he is in danger of losing his account. This is because there is a difference between Copyright and Content ID which I will explain below.
