A funny thing happened to me today. I had been waiting by the inbox for my invitation to the new crowd-funding site, Hatreon. After feeling the all-powerful hands of YouTube squeeze a little too tightly around my neck, I was seeking out a new home for my video content which, by all accounts, is mostly comedic with some political lecturing thrown in for fun. My YouTube channel also contains a historical record of all the rabble rousing I’ve done over the years in various suburbs in opposition to various elected bad actors. It’s not as shocking or groundbreaking as I’d like to believe it is. It’s pretty tame. But according to YouTube, it’s becoming advertiser unfriendly. This is the death knell for any YouTube channel — demonetization.
