…Aaaaaaand we’re back! All right, we’ll be honest: our original plan was to slack off for the entire week between Christmas Eve and New Years Day, but then a juicy bit of news fell out of the sky, and next thing you know there we were, pounding away at the keyboard again.
What news? you ask.
Following a month-long campaign by several of our team members, the YouTube channel belonging to Aaron Dover the psychopathic flat-urfer is gone. Not just suspended, but 100% kaput.
As expected, Aaron is having his usual hissy fit…on Vimeo, where he’s still allowed to post, for now at least. (Apparently Vimeo has also shut down his account there in the past, which does speak well for them.)
According to Aaron’s Vimeo, his channel was the “most controversial” on YouTube…but now he can’t even log into YouTube. “I think they’ve just killed my channel”, he whines. “I built that channel over 18 months…some of my videos have had a quarter of a million views apiece…so it’ll be noticed by a very large number of people”.
Sure, we noticed…but that’s because we were making daily treks over to YouTube to report his channel for child abuse and pandering to paedophiles. But will the Great YouTube-Watching Public at Large even know Aaron’s gone off the air?
We fully expect that Aaron will try to deluge us with histrionic death threats once this post goes live, but we’re used to that—his messages go straight to spam, and every now and then we read them for a chuckle right before we consign them to the great void that lies beyond the spam filter.
So. What’ve you all been up to over the holiday?
El Coyote had been been running controlled experiments involving exactly how much brandy is the optimal amount to pour over a plum pudding for maximum ignition capability…but he’s feeling quite relaxed and refreshed at this point, and ready for the New Year and all it’ll bring.
¡Que viva la huelga! Onward and upward! En avant! And so on.
We have a feeling that 2017 will be a banner year for Hoaxtead Research, and we’re excited to get started.
