Naomi SexyCyborg Wu's Patreon Shut Down by VICE
« on: April 04, 2018, 12:10:04 am »
(If you are confused about the title, pay a little more attention to the ending of most AvE videos.)

Meanwhile, hydrogen chooches in a fusion reactor 93 million miles away to get the pixies dancing in some intricate silicon mazes at the NiHaoMike Blockchain Research Center, trying to wrangle some zeros and ones into relief packages.

Cryptocurrency has taught me to love math and at the same time be baffled by it.

Cryptocurrency lesson 0: Altcoins and Bitcoin are not the same thing.

While I'm not a religious watcher of AvE, I'm confused as to what his endings have to do with this, as most of them are about keeping animal tendrils in compression apparatuses. I might be the stupid one here, but could someone explain this to me?

I think I'm starting to get what he may be on about, but my issue is probably lack of context on Naomi. I'm not entirely sure what is going on with that.

I'm assuming something like "VICE has her in squeeze lock," (since it would be somewhat difficult to put her dick in a vice.)

I mean I guess I get that, but what confused me is that as far as I am aware, she doesn't have a dick.

I've changed this thread title as it has nothing to do with AvE and it's important.

NEVER, EVER believe what a person from the media says to you.  Their job is to sell information, not to protect you.

Today, only 26,000 remain.

Words to live by that so many people so sadly ignore.

When money is involved, there is little that is ever off the table.

EDIT: So as I understand it, VICE, which is one of the worst publications on the internet, even before this, I guess posted information on an article they did that they were asked not to, and after an email feud with them, they decided to attack Naomi by destroying her livelyhood? Correct me if I'm wrong, but if they did this, I think some kneecaps are about to get bashed in.

Same here. What is going on and how can a third party shut down something like Patreon?
There are small lies, big lies and then there is what is on the screen of your oscilloscope.

Well, that probably wasn't a good idea.    :(

Ahh, fame and fortune on the internet, same as it ever was.

It seems fair they suspend her account. If she had a personal dispute she should not use her channel to disclose sensitive data for the other party.

It also could be illegal in many countries.

The story just highlights the importance of having a real job, not rely on this shaky type of income.

If she posted the video on the Patreon platform, and it's true, then yes.

A very good video! Louis gets to the point near the end of the video. Oh and the part at 30:50 did make me laugh out loud.

Two wrongs don't make a right and it seems her response cost her her livelihood, while Vice lost little to nothing. If and when true, the usual disclaimers.

Unfortunately, the video didn't give a lot of information about the how and why. That may of course be intentional.

Couldn't you get that in a written contract/NDA before agreeing to the interview?
Sure, if your dealing with a respectful journalist it might not be necessary, but VICE is known to expose what they can.
