Tom discusses VH and attacks

Today, Tom (tlg847) did a 10 minute video about why VH was created and how some are threatening to attack the site. Tom starts by saying that VH was created by the people who have been planning TheTropolis, but that they didn't really have a detailed plan to start VH. He goes on to say that there are some people who are against the site and they have threatened an attack on Monday night. Tom says he will not "lose" because, to paraphrase, "we will continue to say what we want to say and express oursevlves the way we want to express ourselves." Tom invites anyone interested in joining VH to email him, see the description in Tom's video, below.

Meanwhile, VH has about 520 members now and over 1200 videos. People are having good conversations with others and the site is working very well. A person was on the site earlier tonight who claimed that they were "handed this channel by a fellow warrior of the lulz." They posted a video which was quickly removed and their account was closed. It is unrealistic to expect VH to be able to keep out any and all troublemakers, but they have said they intend to remove people who do not follow the rules, and this seems to be happening.

Here is Tom's video from today, but you'll have to watch it on YT because he has Disabled Embedding.

I never claimed that I "hacked" my way in. What I said was, someone gave me the account.

Holy fucking shit you middle aged morons are stupid.


And Renetto has yet to answer my question: Why allow in sexual predators such as Gimmeabreakman and Jipsi K, who have been caught preying on others time and time again, but keep out "trolls" such as me and Mike skehan, who do nothing other than pull pranks and mock people? Seems like the former would be more destructive to a "community" than the latter.

Besides, gimmeabreakman IS a troll. he just does it behind the scenes. So what's up with the hippocrates?

I have been informed that you are correct. I have been given a quote from the video: "We weren't given this channel by invite. We were handed this channel by a fellow warrior of the lulz" Thanks for the pointing this out and thanks for the comment!

I'd still like a REAL answer from Renetto as to why Jipsi K, Gimmeabreakman, and theredskull were allowed onto the site. Jipsi has been exposed numerous times as a predator who uses stickam and youtube to find, befriend, and entice young women into dangerous relationships with him. Victor (GBM) does similar things, plus he is a troll who tries to muckrake behind the scenes, and theredskull was caught ON TAPE recently telling someone that he's going to "remove them from the earth."

All three of them were/are vloggerheads and were allowed to come, but Michael Skehan, who has NEVER once done any harm was kept off. Are vloggerheads so ultra sensitive they can't similar tune someone out or put them on ignore if they get offended, and if so, who would want to vlog on such a site to begin with?

I don't know why certain individuals are allowed on the site while others are denied access. I am not an admin or in any way an insider at VH. I'm just observing the "experiment" and attempting to comment objectively about it on this blog. I am a member at VH but haven't been very active. I'm waiting to see how the site develops. I see some good things there, but there are some serious issues that need to be addressed.

Renetto said in a VH video last night that the invite process is imperfect and subjective to some degree. Have you tried contacting Paul directly to ask him your question?

As for the people you mentioned in your comments, I don't know any of them. I haven't seen videos by any of them except Michael Skehan. I watched a few of his vids after I heard his name being discussed on VH. He seems passionate about whatever he makes a video about. I saw one in which he tenderly professes his love for SarryCrey. In another, he emphatically states his thoughts about VH. From the few vids I've seen, he appears to be an interesting person with strong opinions.

Paul is the most patronizing ass I've ever had the dishonor of talking to. The man is so full of himself he won't even answer the questions I posed. Of course I posed them in troll fashion, but I point blank asked him like three times via email WHY those people I mentioned were let in, and why Skehan was not. His response was something about how I'm butthurt and how I should spread his video and make it viral. The man is a joke and an asshole, so I'm hoping against hope this ends up costing him tons of money and failing miserably.
