Comments

pool tells his audience what they want to hear using sensationalist language whilst "bending" the truth and sometimes lying, simple as that.

Dude's a skateboarder from Chicago with no formal education and a staff of himself. Why are you two ragging on him so much? Why do you feel so threatened by him?

I neither feel threatened by him nor am I "ragging". I just say it as it is, every single statement of his needs to be checked for accuracy, more than 50% of what he says is either inaccurate or outright wrong (probably all intentionally) hence I don't recommend him as a reliable source of information. Oh and I like to call those that do pooltards.....

most of his vids that i watch he's talking about news posted online by legit journalists. what does it matter who a person is if the information they're referring to is properly sourced? nobody is saying he's a reliable source of information, the people writing the articles he shows in the video are.

you understand the logical fallacy you're making, right? if i talk about einstein's theory of relativity you can't just say it's all innaccurate because i'm not a physicist.

 

you mention "inaccurate or outright wrong", such as what?

That would make you incompetent for broadcasting a blog on the topic. 

 

Same as pool.

Sato, you are the most cowardly, absolving -conservative-types I have ever virtually met.

Coward and contempoary conservative are both shitty positions to be -  by the way

At least stokkebye is obviously retarded or Skeptoid is right-wing delusional level insane. You have that sleazy smell.

You remind me of one Rudy Giuliani.

You are out there a little bit, huh? Who has ever felt "embolden" by Pool? When has Pool ever said anything that "emboldened" anyone? Have you ever even listened to anything of his?

When you combine an attitude of holier than thou syndrome with the likes of dumb and dumber and they form a cult, this is what happens!

It ain't about trolls or cults, they're just part of the internet on a baseline level. It's about this site having the wrong algos for front page promotion and zero effort to fix the issues.
Without a working front page this site will never retain visitors or ever come close to rebuilding its old community. I don't know who pays to keep this site functional or why.

It is voter based and there are a group of 6-7 that will always downvote and/or upvote based on who uploads or whether or not it is Orangemanbad. Boldfart, daftcunt, sal9000, and a few others. Since I am not part of their cult, nor am I part of their dumb and dumber groupthink and I oppose them, any video or comment I make gets at least 3-4 downvotes automatically, even when it has nothign to do with politics or Trump. 

As for who pays, I donated when this site first came on and a few times here or there afterwards to kepp the servers going, as I am sure alot of others did as well. Its  community funded site, but yes, alot of the original members left, I think when people became more and more tribalistic in their video postings and comments. Now it just seems there are people just trolling for negative attention and care not about anything substantial.

Hmm. Well, I guess that's the destiny of any internet community that used to be cool. I should probably let it go.
But then with Trump gone, surely this shit will be a little less constant? Idk mang I just liked this site because it was Youtube with better comment sections and a higher standard of content. I wish there was a way to get back to that basic idea.

Thinking in terms of one source with a dedicated audience - a monolithic, 1-1 relationship. Why? Because that's how the people in this comment section and the poster criticizing Tim Pool roll. They are projecting their own problem onto a diverse and transitory audience of one particular source. They think the relationship between Tim Pool and his audience is the same dynamic as the relationship between themselves and, for example, a Rachel Maddow. The dynamic is completely different, but because they are ideologically possessed they cannot or will not permit themselves to see it.
