Probably spam on the "Now The Real Work Begins" video

I did, probably as many have done, commented, "F for Dan" on the recent video and got a reply from "Text on Telegram -> LinusTechTips8" saying I'd won a prize. Well, I don't have telegram, so that's stuffed for a start, 🙂 but I was wondering about the fastest way to let LMG know of that comment and that the LTT logo is being used. I mean, I've already e-mailed the generic info@ e-mail address, but... is there any other way that could get this in front of someone eyes at LMG quicker?

Just don't take the bait and report the comment, there's not much to do besides that.

It just felt a bit odder than usual, because I seem to be the only one to have received that reply. Well, I looked through a fair chunk of comments, although obviously not all of them. I would have expected a spammer/scammer to have hit more than one person who commiserated for Dan getting the blame!

Standard operating procedure for YouTube at this point. Tis what happens when a platform focuses on profit driving features instead of ensuring they have an effective way of enforcing their own community guidelines and Terms of Service. Report the comments and move on, or simply pretend the comments don't exist since they're mostly full of garbage these days anyway.

Surely not! Dan must be made aware of the strong feeling of support for him 😄
