I guess i can see the argument about needing to make money but most people i see doing this are terrible and don’t deserve to make money
Like as a counter example, zero punctuation videos are pretty good because the guy who makes those
1. talks quick
2. has enjoyable well-enunciated delivery
3. has cute stick figure drawings instead of sticking his stupid face into the camera
so those are actually enjoyable videos to watch
i just hate the specific genre of
"shove face into camera, drone on and on with long pauses and big "uhhhs" that make it seem like you probably didn’t bother writing any of this down before hand or rehearse it or anything, do nothing that makes any of this a better experience than if you’d just written down words that I could have then read"
