    Fun fact: Tanooki is also called a racoon dog. Dodon Pa is a Tanooki. Granted, they aren't dogs in the normal sense and they are more closely related to a fox.

    An algorithm isn't exactly numbers, but rather an instruction set that defines a set of rules for a computer, system, or piece of software to follow. Sometimes, it can be for numbers, and calculations and the like, but can be used for problem-solving tasks too.
    So basically an algorithm defines the rules that YouTube's site and operations follow. When people talk about the infamous YT algorithm, it's because the standard for YouTube's algorithm is awful, always aiming to prop up those who are already famous, and gives incentive for uploading multiple videos a day. It causes a lot of channels to end up dead because of it (especially animation channels) and allows a lot of low-effort channels to make multiple videos today, for example - see Vailskibum94's videos.
    This is the same for their copyright bot. The algorithm for that is beyond fucked and allows for a lot of abuse of the system to steal profits from content makers on false charges, with a lot of people claiming they own copyrighted material when they don't.
    It's largely a massive issue with how automated YT is in general. Computers are defined by their algorithms, and very rarely is an algorithm air-tight. It allows for a lot of exploiting and abuse of the system.

    DanJ86 reacted to KHCast in This Etika news sucks I just really wished that it didn't have to end like this.   
    You know what’s shit? Im already seeing the Internet be the Internet, and people get annoyed at the large focus on Etika today. Some even meme shit posting in response to the news. Probably the same fucks that did the clown emoji spam shit. (Which btw, people are being defensive about and trying to justify. It’s disgusting.)

    DanJ86 reacted to Ryannumber1gamer in Personally I can’t separate art from the artist in most cases as I don’t want my mone   
    It depends on the situation. Especially in the case of a TV show or movie. Like, take for example - Ren and Stimpy, or Danny Phantom. We know now that the creators behind both are fucking shady scumbags, but I don't think it's fair to hate the art because of them, because those shows are the byproducts of multiple creative people putting their hearts and souls into the end goal of making a final product.
    My biggest example is John Lasseter's scandal at Pixar awhile ago, especially with Toy Story 2. It came out that John was sexually harassing people at work. If you want to devalue the art because of John's heavily role in the likes of the original Toy Story - or hell - the fact that he had to come in to save Toy Story 2, you also devalue and scrap the insane levels of work that went into making it by many many, many other people. 
    Here's a great video that looks into how it wasn't just John who made TS2 what it is, but rather, tons of Pixar employees, many the best of the best in their field putting their hearts and souls into fixing something that was utterly broken, and trying to make a great movie within the remaining 8 months they had left: 
    Tons of Pixar employees had to work overtime and endlessly in order to get this movie revamped and ready after setback after setback, and if what the video says is true - quite a few of them did it because they didn't want to let John down either, meaning he was a motivator for the animators to keep going. Situations like these, I find it very difficult to just hate the art because one bad egg was apart of the creation.

    It’s really subjective for me. Some people, I can look past. Others, I just really cannot, and will drop their product on the spot.
    I don’t know, it’s an odd subject for me.

    Most of the time, I don't keep up with the news and know nothing about the person/company I'm supporting. But if something big is going on, I might learn about it and it'd make me think twice about supporting them.

    @SupahBerry Um, are you actually aware of what I'm talking about? Netflix is an American media service provider and Neon Genesis Evangelion is a 20 year old anime that had been previously dubbed by a company that no longer exists.
    The anime had a male character openly say he loved another male character in the original dub and the new Netflix dub had changed it to "like" as well as failing the show in other aspects. Japan has done nothing wrong in this instance....well, to my knowledge anyway.

    No need to apologize @DanJ86. I seem to be heading into that time of the month when I go through a depressive episode anyway and was already being set off by a lot of things from home to work and everything in between. I won't dwell on it too much right now though because I don't want you feeling worse about this than you already do. I just wanted to help and made a legitimate mess so you have my apologies for that.
    And @tailsBOOM! I appreciate your concern, but mods can't do anything about in person encounters.

    @DanJ86you couldn't have seen it coming.  You don't really seemed to get exposed to that kind of stuff, so I think that it's understandable for you to make this mistake one time.  Knowing you, you won't do it again because you're a very kind and caring person.

    If Sega had given Sumo more money to work with, the game could've been a much better rival.
