    I agree with MaskedOne on this. You're going to get in trouble if you get in fights over things with people and YouTube will evict you. They only take so much. Also cursing people will come back to you if you are not careful.

The best case scenario is that you both waste a lot of time and energy on nothing of value. The mid case is that you waste time, your opposition gets ad revenue from people who look up his channel to see who the hell you're talking about. The worst case is that the two of you stumble over Youtube's TOS in the wrong time and place and Youtube evicts both of you for being more hassle than Youtube can be bothered with. Do not engage in pissing matches that don't accomplish anything useful.
    You're right. He's not worth my time anyway.

    YouTube is very incompetent when it comes to enforcing its own rules on its site. Other YouTubers violate Youtube Rules & Guidelines far worse things on their sites such as violence and nudity. And yet Youtube doesn't do anything about it at all. So I'm not even worried about it at all.

    Re: The Rant Thread (v1.3)

    Well I got fired today. That's a first. To be honest I've been looking for literally anything else cause I hated it so much. I've not had any grievances with my work brought up, I do what I'm supposed to. Except, as I told my boss in my job interview, I have back issues and I can't do heavy lifting. Turned out there was a lot more lifting involved than she initially told me, and she acted equally surprised every tine i said I couldn't do that. The job title is receptionist, but 99% of my work has been heavy cleaning and dealing with the shops stock. I answer like 1 phone call a day, if any.
    But AFTER having me crawl around on the floor cleaning the drains under the tubs, the job nobody wants to do, and generally letting me do all the hard work (we were 3 at work and the boss and my coworker have just been sitting out back talking about tv shows), she pulled me aside for a chat 5 minutes before I got off, to let me know my 3 month trial is up and she's really given me a chance but I just don't seem to fit in.
    I've had my resignation typed out and ready to send for weeks, as soon as I found something else. But I'm still a little upset. Mostly cause I need to scramble to find something else now, I enjoy paying rent. Well. I don't but ya know. Maybe a little cause I wanted to quit, not be fired. But if they'd kept me on another week they couldn't legally fire me without good reason without me being able to sue them for it.
    And it's true. I fulfil my contract, above and beyond. I barely ever get the 30 minute break I'm entitled to, I just swallow my food in 2 minutes when I get a chance. But I don't do the things I'm just expected to, like cancel my weekend plans to take other people's shifts because they can't find more employees (the pay is terrible. They somehow managed to avoid talking pay til I got my contract. One of the others told me 4 other people have been offered the job before me and refused.). And I probably don't act as excited as I'm expected to about being paid minimum wage and hurting my back every day. I put an effort into being nice and polite and chatty with customers, and I make a lot of extra sales from it and generally enjoy it. But I am autistic, and I'm not terribly chatty with my colleagues when I'm out back.
    I've been sick for a few days and came back today. That might have had some thing to do with it, but everyone's sick right now. My boss was off work last week. And I had 3 days off last month cause I got an insect bite AT WORK that had my neck so swollen i could barely move it and needed antibiotics...
    Anyway.
    Maybe it's just the fact that I couldn't stand my boss. I tried so hard to hide it but dear lord she got on my nerves. She calls me a girl. I am almost 30, I'm also older than her. She's in charge of social media. I've seen her spend an entire day whining about having to write 1 line on a Facebook post. She takes personal calls constantly, and if I'm quiet walking out back she doesn't notice me and keeps playing games on her phone. I've gone on Facebook to see a post on the business page that still had her notes for herself in it ("hey sweetie may be if people ask this you can answer like this"... Yes she calls herself sweetie). Honestly think the feeling was mutual... We just didn't get along.
    Also she got mad at me like 2 weeks ago for not knowing how to do something she'd neglected to show me how to do, and told me I lied when I said she hadn't. I didn't. I know cause i'd asked her to show me several times and she kept putting it off...

    Any way... That's a ramble.

    That just sucks!

    It's hard finding a good job...
    Every moment of a life is a horrible tragedy, a slapstick comedy, dark nihilism, golden illumination, or nothing at all; depending on how we write the story we tell ourselves.

    it is..I actually really enjoyed working in the covid response, I like lab work. I'm technically still employed by them but there just aren't any shifts anymore. The pandemic situation has been pretty chill for a while here, so they there's 2 people at work in my centre where we used to be about 20.

    Someone on Facebook Messenger ask me out of the blue to help him because he lived in Uganda that his life is in danger. After all, he's gay and his country is homophobic. Then he said that he wants me to send one thousand dollars to him which I knew was a scam. So I block him.

    I'm just so upset tonight. Earlier tonight, I found out that one of my favorite tarot Youtuber, The KnightReader Tarot was terminated on Youtube for the second time. Youtube is greedy and corrupted in how its website operated. They have been doing this crap for so many years.

    Was he doing anything inappropriate? YouTube is cracking down on a lot of negative YouTubers. So if he has been doing something inappropriate then they could have had a reason to remove him. Not to say he did something, but they might have thought that.

    He didn't do anything inappropriate. His channel is mostly on tarot Livestream. I talk to him on Facebook Messenger about it and he doesn't know why Youtube did him dirty to banned him unfairly.
