I'm subscribed to Elric (motherboards.org) for just about a year, and I made a comment on one of his videos that I might have typed incorrectly because I didn't think it twice, and I didn't expect that kind of an answer.

All I wanted to say, was just some constructive criticism, but he got me all wrong. All wanted to point out, is that it would be better if he got a proper place to unbox stuff and do videos and I made that comment because I have seen so many YouTubers and videos, that i have some experience, but he must have misunderstood my comment, my intentions, or because my English is not that great, I might have typed things that are meant to be really offending, but I didn't know how to properly type them, Rodney i need your help to clear out this misunderstanding.

This what he replied to me by a PM:
"You are a total ******* I would ******* love to find you and put a bullet in your head, no one cares for your ********* comment *********** and if you dont like it go somewhere else. You make me sick you ******** worm, STAY AWAY FROM MY CHANNELS ********."

I got really offended, without any to intention too. I'm really sorry, and if you do take the time and talk to him, I would love it if you could say to him I'm really sorry and that i would like him to forgive me because all I did was with good intentions, and I take every think that might have offended him back.

Thanks Rodney, i hope I'm not asking much.

Sorry about the edit, but due to the family friendly nature of these forums you were in violation of the membership rules, even just in quoting. I opted to NOT delete this message or take other actions as it is intended for our all-mighty leader, Rodney, and I will allow the edit to remain so he may choose to do with it as he wants.

As far as it goes, sounds to me like this other fella doesn't need subscribers or viewers and should be ignored if that is how he treats those who comment. IMHO.

Thanks for not deleting my post. I really wanted to show exactly what he told. The way he spoke to me, really upset me and I don't want to leave that misunderstanding going. I will reconsider my subscription very carefully.

Thanks again.

*I really don't think I could be able to watch his videos, after what he has told me. It's all just a matter of pride. I'm serious about YouTube and I enjoy commenting, even If i sometimes might offend (even slightly)
someone, I'm doing it because i want to point out something to him he won't understand in another way.

I don't know him or watch his videos, so I'm afraid I can't help you on this matter. If he indeed said this I can understand why you'd be offended.

Thanks Rodney,

I was really surprised you don't know him, he have mentioned you several times on his videos, like he knew you. ( maybe cause you are the best..., well )

Thanks everyone that replied, especially you Rodney, I hope YouTubers like him come to justice.

Nope, no idea who he is, aside from some guy from motherboards site and a video I watched once. Only reason I watched it is because someone brought it to my attention. It was the one about me going crazy or something. LOL.

I should mention... I don't watch much of anything on YouTube, I just don't have the time :( Wish I did though.

Back in the Pentium 4 / Athlon XP days, I was looking for a motherboard, and I remember I crossed with this site while researching. I got the idea that they spent a LOT of time on their website, and not so much scripting the videos (lots of detail, not much "what does this mean to the user"). However, I remember that they mentioned 3dGameMan.

If that says anything, I'm now assisting as a moderator at 3dGameMan.

I'm sorry, if you have a net brand, you CANNOT talk to your "customers" in such a tone, ever. It is too easy for a pissed off customer to simply copy the email or response and blast the web with it. Something that will NEVER EVER be seen from this site. Thanks, Rod, for keeping a sense of reality (and a family friendly tone), that's why a lot of us will never leave!

Thanks. I have a thick skin, but even so, I'm only human and some things still bother me. I try and remain clam and not go completely off my head. LOL

Yeah it's a absolute need to preserve the "good look" of your company cause 1 person will talk to 2 that will talk to 4 more and etc... By the way, there's always a method to speak to people... it's a civism essential, like Rodney say: "I try to remain calm and not to go completly off my head !!"

I think I sent u that link once..
but im sure I wasnt the only one.

I think it wasnt really cool using your name to gain suscribers
but im sure that worked...

anyway about elric, that was the first time i saw him
and of course i hated it... I felt like betraying 3dgameman
and I even made a comment on his site.

after a while i started to watch more of his videos, it kinda grew on me
cause he is a musician, and im kinda a headbanger, guitar playing geek.
but he is not a great musician either, more like a metal wannabe jack black style

now doing reviews about phones and stuff...
I dont completely understand why his videos cant really convince me

I miss your polls man...
and really loved that time when u actually went crazy or changing ur style
