Is all this a sly dig at TTL ?
"Hey guyyyys, Tiny Tom Logan here back with another video for you..."
Yeah, JackFrags on YouTube says that. It makes sense to me. It's not pandering in my eyes; it's encouraged a simple form of feedback. Only saying "Like the video" would be pandering as you're habitually requesting commendation for the sake of it, without accepting a critical eye. Much of YouTube's content seems exempt from criticism because of blind loyalty from diehard fans. That's how misogynistic twits manage to make a new for themselves and earn tons of money for 'pranking' people. Or how incredibly dull people living normally dull lives earn a living vlogging.
