It’s no different than a movie or TV star. Just a different platform. It’s all based on advertising revenue just like TV. 

jeeez ,I've never paid a dime or purchased anything from an ad on YouTube

All you need to do is watch them for them to make money.

There are some really well made outdoor and travel shows on YouTube. Shows like Expedition Overland are as good if not better than most Discovery Channel shows.  A lot of the fishing shows are better than whats on TV too.

I will not, ever, recognize someone as a "youtube star". 

The internet is not real life, nor are the personas of actual people on the internet. 

 

I do not, and will not, have internet/cable available in my home with my 9yr old boy. 

The internet is not real life. 

He and I exist without even a passing thought of the home-internet (despite having it at his mother's house) because real life has too much to offer than "reality tv" could ever offer. 

 

... Sorry for the tangent. Schools are suddenly asking our kids to be "wired in" and I won"t stand for it. 

 

You're posting on the internet right now. Is your persona real? Is your posting real life?

No, no it is not. I am a different person online versus real life.

 

I post in two places...my hobby is model airplanes and the internet has lots of info sharing. I joined SOL hoping for info, and have gotten pretty close to nothing....why am I here anyway? I dunno. I guess i should cancel myself.

TimS... I messaged you earlier to delete my account here... I dunno how to do so otherwise. 

 

It's a weird draw, to look ahead to a nothingness one knows is there, yet keeps clicking on it. 

 

I no longer want to be associated with the online part of SOL...

No... I've perused this site enough. 

I am a humble guy whom simply tosses a hook once in awhile, and feel that "here" is way too different from the communities of which I am used to. 

 

There is way more vitriol here in SOL in one day than an entire year in my other hobby.... So I'd like to exit, stage right.
