Hey everyone,
I am making this thread to get your opinion on something that I have been encountering on YouTube. I am not looking for a "flame-war" of any sort or sympathy just so you know. Anyway, on YouTube I gets hundreds of trolls and people saying that I am greedy just because I own a store and am a YouTube partner. Just so you guys know, I use majority of my money for gas, insurance, car, friends/family gifts, dates, taco bell stops, and the occasional "OOO I want that." Do you guys think I am honestly greedy? If so, please post why.


My Love to you all~ (except Calvin :p)
*LOL this thread fails already and it's not even posted xD

See that's what i'm saying. Idc much though it's just trolls who rub peanut butter on themselves all day.
Random phrase of the day ^. Would put in sig if I had room hmm..

I don't think your greedy at all. That's like getting pissy at people who work at fast food places because they spent their paychecks on whatever they want <_<.

How exactly can earning money by selling a product, especially when you have a ton of competition for customers, possibly be interpreted as a bad thing?

All you're doing is running a small business. Making money isn't greedy (in fact, it's necessary, and the only reason the noob youtube commenters don't know this is because they're still young enough that their families are paying for everything they need). It would be greedy if you were making far more money than you needed and you still wanted more, but that is obviously not the case here. Just ignore the people who have no clue how the world works.

You put in work and you get money back? I'm surprised nobody has called the police.

Seriously though don't worry about it. Trolls are just looking for attention and if you get a lot of hits, you get a lot of trolls.

If they insist on calling you greedy, tell them you will give all your cubes for free (1 to each single address submitted) if one of them shows enough disregard for money (and kindness for all cubers) as to send you a $350 check so you can pay for all the mailing. No one will do so, and you can tell them to shut up.

But then, you run the risk of receiving the check from a competing store...

I get the same exact criticism that you do! It seemed to happen the exact moment I got partnership on YT. The trolls rise in numbers as you get more popular. They troll simply because they can. I had one of my supervisors from when I was in the Navy come to my Channel and tell me to "get a real job" and "grow up".

I operate an online and physical puzzle store and I can tell you I get trolls at the physical store too, face to face. There are so many jealous people and they don't realize the tremendous amount of stress of having a small business.

It's one of my life's biggest goals and accomplishments to open a store like I have, and it's hard work.



Here's what you do with your trolls... reply to their comments so that they stick at the top of the page. After that let your loyal viewers take care of them. For example look at the comments on my video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a7RqIAlY3vQ this guy is a hilarious troll.

Just because you own your own business instead of working at McDonalds? Do you honestly feel you have to apologize for this?!

There is a whole world of anonymous trolls out there that don't think before they spew...you cannot possibly take it all personally.
