I knew I’d be making this put up someday, and I figured it will make me unhappy, I used to be incorrect concerning the latter. The final 24 hours have been a few of the most horrible hours of my life.
This has form of been within the works for concerning the final 12 months or so. I haven’t had a lot enjoyable with this web site over the past 2 or 3 years, a brand new demographic of individuals have exhausted me. I believe a whole lot of this alteration began with the proliferation of YouTube personalities over the past 5 years.
Nothing is about info anymore, it’s solely about whose saying it. That is true for all types of media and I actually don’t need to be part of it.
So, these final 24 hours?
I don’t care if anybody comes at me, I’m a giant boy and only a few of you’d ever say it to my face, so I typically don’t care concerning the cowards and fanboys.
Nevertheless, yesterday they got here at my kids and my spouse. They got here at my household….. little fanboys of sure YouTubers which have clearly been raised horribly. What was in my inbox I gained’t even present my spouse. I’m tearing up scripting this with absolute disgust for a way horrible persons are turning into. All of that is created by the personalities (I refuse to name them creators), they feed off of it, they revenue off of it they usually don’t care.
I’ve through the years needed to take care of blowback from issues mentioned on OTHER web sites and on YouTube channels. Yesterday was the tipping level. There are such a lot of liars, grifters, and usually terrible folks polluting this area of interest little trade.
I bear in mind the times when it was simply 3 or 4 of us, all of us talked and supported one another. Then the copycats got here, then social media, then YouTube, I’m terrified about what comes subsequent. These unique people I nonetheless discuss to, to at the present time. They’re real and great folks. You recognize who you’re and I’ll clearly attain out in particular person.
Not everyone seems to be unhealthy, but it surely was a tiny minority, however that minority is rising manner too quick for me to maintain up, and I’m exhausted.
For these offended by my colourful language on social media yesterday, I’m unapologetic. I put on my coronary heart on my sleeve for higher or worse.
What’s subsequent for Canon Rumors?
Canon Rumors will stay on with new possession, I’ve two consumers and a most popular purchaser. We’ll work out the main points and switch of possession over the subsequent month or two. It’s a much bigger enterprise than one would possibly suppose and I’m positive there are issues I haven’t even thought of but.
This can be my final put up on this web site. There can be two new writers taking up subsequent week doing the day by day posts and updates. I’ll simply be forwarding the data to them.
As soon as the possession change is accomplished, the brand new proprietor could maintain issues the identical or change it up.
I’ve accomplished this for 14 years and had so many enjoyable instances and met so many superb folks. That simply doesn’t occur as ceaselessly anymore and that actually does make me unhappy.
Nicely, I’ve nothing profound to say… so I’ll simply log out.
