Yes I know, I used the workaround (and it's a video I've watched before, which is what initially prompted me to post).ScaredyCat":2of72h4o said:This video is "Third Coast Craftsman"...
Do you really think it's odd that someone wouldn't want to give even a tiny financial boost to someone they don't care for? It's not at all an unusual thing I assure you.ScaredyCat":2of72h4o said:...but I do find it a bit weird that you dislike some youtube channels so much that you wouldn't even click a link. What did they do to you?
Apologies, didn't know it was a problem, have edited my post to include what the link is.ED65":z7aw8mlf said:Doug, I don't know if I'm speaking only for myself but I don't like to follow blind YouTube links. There are any number of reasons for this (possibly the main one being if you've seen the video previously) but I know I'm not the only one who doesn't want to give certain channels even one extra view, so I appreciate it if the channel name is given so I can be selective.
Before someone says it: yes I do know there's a way around this issue but it's a hassle; so much simpler if we're just told up front.
Cosman used to get on my nerves chronically, I think he's mellowed out a bit now and doesn't seem so pushy on the whole salesman pitching constantly as he once was. Another one was "The Samurai Carpenter" who was a bit like marmite, some people liked him and some people absolutely despised him, he thinks wood movement is a myth so that pretty much cemented my feelings in the latter camp! :lol:ED65":10pkuglq said:Ones that get mentioned a lot are Cosman and Sellers but there are plenty of others.
Oh, I know the ones! Like this?ED65":10pkuglq said:In my case to give one example I won't watch vids from female woodworkers who gain extra views the wrong way – just a glance at the thumbnails of their vids will tell you what I'm getting at if you haven't noticed already!
There are far bigger issues with that video other than the clothing she's wearing. Overly brash music that's so loud she has to shout is just one of them. I wouldn't watch it out of preference, but not, I suspect, for the same reason you find it unappealing. But then I wouldn't have an issue clicking a link that led to it, thinking, "Naa no thanks". I'd just hit space to stop it* and close it.Trevanion":dnpxdgwn said:youtube-video

That not just disliking something and moving on, that's actively going out of your way to not do something that has little to no impact on you.ED65":1gz3cjoc said:wouldn't want to give even a tiny financial boost to someone they don't care for?
It's the right target market, just look at the comments.Steve Maskery":11v2u6t0 said:That the embodiment of everything that is wrong with YT woodwork. But look at the numbers. Unbelievable.

That's the thing though, even if the contents not quite as good but they come across as being a happy likeable character people will warm to them. I enjoy Peter Millards channel because his content is good but more importantly to me he comes across as genuinely excitable about his videos/woodworking.Steve Maskery":44gr6v3u said:
