Re: Relocated Off-Topic User Discussion

Not everything is about your view of appropriateness and why did you ask those questions anyway? You don't start an earnest attempt at communicating by trying to ask "yes or no" questions in order to lay down some some kind of judgment you made beforehand. I don't need your self-righteous moral cond...

Re: Relocated Off-Topic User Discussion

You know what, at this point, I don't feel like I have enough freedom to even answer those question in a thoughtful and mature way. Because I'm being "scrutinized" and "closely monitored" for any "patterns of behavior". After this whole nasty experience, I did reflect on theses issues myself and con...

I am on the way to work and don't have a chance to give a detailled point by point response. I don't even know if I want to dignify your slander with a response, but you leave me little choice as your personal vendetta is trying to harm my reputation on this public forum, which I don't consider a jo...

Re: PewDiePie

Pewdiepie just posted a short, strong video where he talks about his own motivations and reasons to not respond directly after the Christchurch shootings and gives some context for the "subsrcibe to pewdiepie" meme. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ah5MYGQBYRo I think's it's very commendable of him t...

So we've established that your experience is not universal I have never claimed that. In fact i say exactly the opposite in my post: "But you have a different experience.

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

No, it's just people knowing the common meaning of bb as short for baby, as used everywhere in the online speaking community. The fact that Dan used it to mean bye bye, which is mostly used in the gaming community only and not even that much, created a great confusion. It's just one of the main pri...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

I would call it more of a collective delusion. "ty ly bb" is a great example of people trying to create their own myth about Dan and Phil. It almost certainly meant "bye bye" and not "baby", but some people just like the idea better that it was some grand romantic gesture Dan was making to Phil. Tha...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

And i know people are disillusioned with Dan coming back to youtube, i'm not usually optimistic, but i don't think he would be going through such creative torment if he wouldn't at least give it a good old college try. In hindsight i think his hiatus was a long time coming, i'm remembering one old ...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

Lol, well not to make an argument out of it but it's rather ironic to see people debate if commenting on a skincare routine can be interpreted as offensive (literally anything can I since offense can be taken for all kinds of reasons) while at the same time saying how they hate men. Maybe not all, b...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

There is no universe that is going to happen. Maybe, in a distant future they thought they might sell it again once the...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

The Q&A turned out great. I feel like Phil put more personality in this video than he has done with the last 50 combined. He still checked off all the boxes though. Plants. Dogs. Skincare routine. But there were also some interesting questions he picked that I didn't expect and went a little deeper....

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

In any case, you don't just stop a series like PINOF, the quintessential symbol of "Dan and Phil", if you're still feeling into the sort of content you make. The way they communicated about it reveals a lot too. No state funeral was given, no they thought it 'obvious' that we would catch on that it...

"Giving the people what they want" was linked to the show being about audience participation . It ain't that deep. Can y'all stop pretending like they hate their own content and their show when they have expressed nothing but joy and pride for what they have created with II? I'm not saying they sti...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

Exactly what I hope he does. He’s spent years giving the people what they want (I mean he flat out went on a world tour warning people about this) and now he needs to shift. I strongly doubt he wants to keep on telling 12-year-olds how to handle relationships, or that he finds any pleasure in Dil p...

I hope that's where he's headed. I also hope that when talks about issues like society and politics, he proves to be someone who's thoughtful and doesn't apply a dogmatic approach to complex questions. However I do think talking about political and social issues opens you up to more criticism. I'm n...

^ Got to second that. The live shows were really unique in that they showed a side of Dan and Phil as people that you just don't really get in more polished vids of 10 or so mins. Even in gaming streams, you don't have that more laid-back, unfocused conversation that makes it feel like you're really...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

Yes best of luck with your launch and merch! I'm guessing you haven't got a net worth well into the millions of pounds so it's a totally different situation and i hope a enough people will support you, in all kinds of ways, so you're able to do the things you do.

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

I agree it's not on Phil to explain anything about Dan, Dan's absence is for Dan to answer and if he doesn't want to, that fine too (though regrettable as I would like to know him better). I've never seen them as an inseparable brand or considered them 'joined at the hip'. For me the hiatus started ...

Hi, i liked reading your contribution and would like to say that a critical opinion is not the same as "negativity" for me at all. One man's positive conviction is another man's lie anyway.

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

Naive or not, it's a principle I measure them by and I bet there's others in the fandom who think similarly. (Not that the strength of an argument is measured by it's popularity).
