First I added a new blog post be sure to check it out http://happycabbie.blogspot.com/

There are two videos that started this whole anti-reply channel sentiment which of course has been brewing for the past year.

The first was DireBoris aka Every Faking Veedyo
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QyPRTb...
Which was pretty much directed at TheReplyGirl who then responded with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_lIps...

The second is by ChAinHanGlOw69
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJHzbX...

Then the Yogscast went to their forum and posted this thread
https://yogscast.com/showthread.php?5...

MeganSpeaks made a reply to this
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XzIfCK...
At seven minutes into the video she claims the arrow is pointing at her

At three minutes into the video she accuses others of retagging old videos to leech views off of viral videos. She denies that she does this. I am curious to know her explanation for this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbWgYE...

The comment highlighted from MeganSpeaks comes from a video by ChristopherMast http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYd8qL...

Here is part of the thread from The Yogscast forum https://yogscast.com/showthread.php?5...

The comments from KmartinTV (Formerly known as WeatherManKevin) are from this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXPQhJ...

Be sure to ask him why he is spam tagging in a video that criticises spam tagging.

For the ultimate lulz you should check out MeganSpeaks video where she asks TheReplyGirl to stop doing video responses to Yogscast because doing so is disrespectful.

TheReplyGirl responded

Now I guess I should cover this point of obvious bullwinkle. MeganSpeaks has claimed repeatedly over and over that SHE is the original reply channel and everyone else is copying her. Here are the facts. Her channel was created on August 9th 2011. TheReplyGirl started her channel on July 18th, 2011 a few weeks before. However even if we included Megan's former closed and terminated accounts she is still way late to the game compared to TheRapperWhoEats (now closed) and TheVideoResponseHero which was started on September 26th 2008.

Furthermore she is not even the most subscribed video review channel. CraftNation has 90,000 subscribers and TaniaUncensored has about 60,000.

Now to the Reply Channels who may find this video offensive. I consider some of you my friends. However, I am still entitled to my opinion. You are entitled to do any video you want. However you should be willing to withstand the open forum of YouTube and the free exchange of ideas and opinions. I don't hate any of you. I am merely stating my opinion on the videos you produce. Likewise many people have criticised me for the videos I have produced. When you put forth your ideas you should be willing to accept feedback.

Now some people might think that I am attacking people that I have defended in the past. Let me make this clear. What I was defending was their right to post videos and was standing up to a bully. Nobody should be bullied into leaving YouTube.
