YouTube is aggressively demonetizing my videos. At this point my videos get demonetized, and their views get locked and reduced. My “likes” get removed and the videos get de-ranked. Subscribers report their subscriptions get removed, and there is no sign of change.
What am I saying that is so controversial? Will I be allowed to continue? This is the page to fight back.
Team Hotpot is currently only two people – Nathan Rich 火锅大王, and SerenaHottie, who helps me. In addition to paying for everything out of my own pocket, I do all the work. I have no backers and am totally independent.
As I am a Chief Technology Officer here in China, I don’t have much free time to do anything else. Indeed, I work all day and night nearly every day and night. Have you noticed my eyes are always black? I rarely sleep. I have been relatively successful in my life, but that’s no reason to continue to lose money by making these videos. So, if you’d like to support the effort, please do.
Many people write me asking how they can help. There are many things needed, so there is a way to help no matter who you are. If you have money, you can support financially. If you have time, you can help that way too. If you have not much of anything, you can still support the cause!
