I only watch his stuff to get a good view of products. Same with Hardware Canucks. They got epic camera setups but know f-all about reviewing.

Just went on patreon to update some pledges to some projects I like.

I decided to give channel slush fund a look and found that they make over $100 per patron, with 294 people giving Linus 0ver $34,000.

Just looking at their tier rewards just looks so exploitative, with $50 or more getting you name in a video and other such rewards that are designed to exploit people for money.

Personally I am disgusted by this.

I remember when we were discouraged from talking crap about other channels but I'm guessing that has now changed?

Channel super fun isn't a hardware channel, though I do see your point.

I'm all for supporting content creators, but I can't help but feel that something is wrong here.

Still its a site ran by another tech channel and in the past (at least) Tom discouraged people talking crap because as a forum we 'don't stoop that low' (it was a couple of years ago so I don't remember the exact words).

I do see what you mean, though my statement does not belittle their technical content in any way, nor does it attack a person. All I am saying is that their parteon looks fishy.

looking at a recent video only 8 people are at $50+ on patreon, which does not add up to an over $100 average....

The existence of this thread belittles their technical ability, bumping it and furthering the argument of the OP is an attack.

I'd feel attacked if I was Linus. I also would not care if people sent me $420'000 a year for my business to mess around with.
