User generated cheater detectives

See, this is why your so-called “user generated content” rules. I love YTwatchdog’s policing job of “cheaters” on YouTube. Every online community has them – trolls, haters, cheaters, griefers…

YTwatchdog, who counts “Your dad” as one of his influences, shows how some are spamming the system with fake accounts – surprise surprise – to appear popular, pushing them up the “most viewed” page. Same old practice for a digital world, but I love the entertainment value like this which spins out of it. Call me simple, but this makes me giggle. You’ll get used to the voice. Reminds me of the early Bluggcast days.
