That's the eloquent comment I wanted to leave a doofus on youtube today. I get a constant trickle of comments and messages each week regarding my videos. 99% of the time they are positive and polymer clay oriented. When I do get a comment from some dumbbutt troll I just delete it and roll my eyes.
But the past few days I've gotten 3 back-to-back comments from different people commenting on the long length of the videos. I know they are long videos. Hell, before days of editing them they were twice as long! They are a lesson. An entire lesson, I hope. I want a newbie to be able to watch those videos and feel like, "Hey...I can do that. Right now!" So I make no apologies for rambling on like I do. :)
Anyway, back to the comment. This morning I check my emails and find a new video comment. I check them out immediately b/c I want to reply quickly if someone has a legit question. This morning's comment simply read, "Tooooooooo loooooooong".
My first reaction was to reply "Biiiiiiite meeeeeeee!" :) My second thought was to delete it. But I finally decided to comment back. I basically told the person to shut up and go away. **big sigh**
Just this past week I started working on notes for 2 new videos. A youtuber requested some info that should make a fairly short, informative video. And I have a personal tool tip I've been wanting to share that will make another fairly short video. Even before the Time Police Posters annoyed me I was trying to keep "short and sweet" in mind. I know that I talk very slowly AND I ramble on a lot. It's something I don't like about the old videos, but it's WAY too much work to remake them. So I'm trying to learn from past mistakes and improve on future videos. But dang it!!! Those ninnies totally pissed me off. Talk about taking the fun out of something. Big dumb dummyheads! My Mom always taught me to take the high road and be the better person and all that crap. But today I just needed to complain. So....thanks for listening.
