Youtuber smearing lawsuit?

Apparently another Youtuber named Sai has accused several prominent Youtubers of charging companies to visit their booths at events. Is LTT also seeking legal action against this Sai Kumar fellow.

 

I don't believe the accusation is true, I think it's just an aspiring Youtuber that's bitter because he's not as popular.

 

Edit: The video below is JayzTwoCents, one of the people being slandered, explaining the situation.

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

I'm not sure if you misunderstood or not, I apologize if I am wrong. It's not jay making the accusation, it's the other gentleman. Jay made the video to address the accusations made by the individual.

 

@Professor Dingledore just a heads up you might add quotes, or risk the thread being moved or possibly locked.

Oh... The video doesn't suffice as a quote? I'm not sure what else to add, Sai's twitter is hidden from non-followers so I can't copy paste from it.

Is there even a lawsuit? How would that one dumb guy sue so many bigger channels?

And are the accused going to counter using the American way? I hope not because its gonna be a shitshow when peaceful youtubers start swinging lawyers around like big bully corporations.

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

You can use the headphones of your phone and plug it in unless your IT disabled audio drivers then that will suck.

Saw this on JayzTwoCents' twitter thread. Looks like the guy was acknowledging the possible repercussions from alleged oral defamation

hey umm small PSA: don't brigade on twitter (or anywhere for the matter). let them sort this out among themselves.

 

mild example, but don't do this

 

That tweet made me lose the little respect I might have had left for Barnacules. 

The "I have more subscribers that you" argument is ad hominem and extremely immature. 

It's like telling someone that they are poor and therefore wrong and unimportant. 

 

I don't even care about this YouTube drama. But fuck you Barns. 

 

Edit: hehe, I looked at barns twitter and it's a goldmine for stupid fallacies, hypocrites and projections. 

For what I can tell barns was never mentioned as one of accused people. Yet he is posting a ton about this, and accuses whoever this nobody is from trying to get fame from YouTube drama.

Dude, he is a nobody. Why are you sicking your hundreds of thousands of fans on someone who hasn't even done you anything? 

 

Also, reposting tweets he has since deleted does nothing but keep the drama alive. You're clearly demonstrating that you want this to blow up rather than blow over.

This bloke sounds as bad as adordedtv,  shit on you first for the views then hang the consequences later. evidence? who needs it?

QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.

Sometimes I miss contractions like n't on the end of words like wouldn't, couldn't and shouldn't.    Please don't be a dick,  make allowances when reading my posts.

That tweet from Barnacules was probably a joke.

These people that make baseless accusations with no evidence to get attention then make their whole twitter page private are the ones that shouldn't be getting any respect.

Charging a company to visit their booth? That doesn't even make any sense.

I've been watching Jay's streams with Barnacules for a while. I noticed that he always tries to defend or show Jay in good light. He occasionally tries to "criticize" Jay, but only to the extent of seeming "independent" from him. It's getting rather pathetic at this point, but I can't feel pity for guys like him anymore.

Huh, I saw part of this before it blew up into a "thing". That doesn't happen often.

 

Directly sponsored pieces have to be disclosed in the video. A company won't last long when they don't, as it opens them up to being exposed later. There's a reason Linus went for the "Top Gear of Tech" route, as it allows for access to all of the cool stuff, good money, and he can be up-front with what is going on.  (We also get some hilarious industry information, as Intel REALLY, REALLY wants you to know about Optane.)

Because Barnacules is living vicariously through other youtubers :D (Jayz in particular since they are close friends). He posts like 1 video/month (or per 2 months) so he is not the most relevant YTber of them all even if he somehow managed to keep his 900k subscribers.

GN are also lawyering up according to a tweet I cant find right now.

 

Wonder if anything will happen with the lawsuit or if it will be thrown out. IMO these accusations seems equally lame as the random "Linus is a Nvidia-shill" comments on youtube..

LTT and other channels like Jayz2cents have never made it a secret when they had been sponsored to produce a given piece of content, I find it very hard to believe that they'd try to pass something like this under the radar if it were true. Furthermore it's not like LMG is having a hard time making a profit (at least as far as I can tell, considering their channels' growth and the fact that they are constantly hiring more people) so I don't see the point in risking their reputation in exchange for some sketchy money.

 

I also don't see why they would sue, maybe they'll address it in the WAN show just to set the record straight but taking it to court would probably just give it more weight than it deserves. On top of that the guy would get to play the martyr card, claiming he couldn't win a court case because he's not as rich or whatever. In the end, winning a lawsuit wouldn't erase any potential bad press and it would only give this more attention.

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please 🤨

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

If it actually does go to court we likely won't know anything until after it's been resolved. Talking about specifics of the case outside the courtroom can get you into some pretty hefty trouble of it's own in some jurisdictions.

 

And I mean we really know nothing at this point. We don't know which side filed the lawsuit, we don't know why they filed the lawsuit, I mean for all we know the lawsuit could be from Videocardz or could be an antitrust thing files by one of the companies who are victims. We really know nothing at this point.

Its very easy to sue people.

Anyone can sue anyone, its pretty simple.

Anyone can sue based on meaningless, baseless accusations.

 

Think about it, channels that put out video's to make a profit would indeed visit booths for money.

 

Common sense really.

 

Channels have said they are sellouts by putting up silly childish thumbnail videos to gain more viewers and more money. And the channels create drama by putting out drama videos. And channels put out "filler" video's. You guys do not have to look far at all! It is literally right in front of you, right now!
