    The problem is, you presume that we can watch YouTube. As I've mentioned to Poncho several times, I live in a rural area, and thus relegated to satellite internet. Due to data caps and low speeds, I cannot watch YouTube videos.

    If it's important enough to make a video, then it's important enough to have a secondary source (such as written transcript) for those that can't access the video source.

    I have satellite internet. It seems fine if you don't go crazy. Just go to a café and download the videos to your computer. I use this site.

    I believe you misunderstood: I said "rural." We don't have cafes, unless I want to spend the gas and time to drive to a place that does.

    Glad your satellite internet works. Seems like I hit my data cap 10 days into the cycle each month. Then I get throttled.

    Not likely anyone lives in a more rural area than me. But you are telling me there's not a café of doughnut shop 30-45 minutes from you?

    Do you live West of the Mississippi or better yet West of Omaha? In the rural west, yes, it is possible especially at this time of year.

    I live in the middle of a very large national forest. I understand that many people live further out than me but most do not.

    Donut shops all over the place. Owned by locals. Donut shops with free wireless? Gotta travel at least 30-45 minutes to get to a town that has that kind of perk. Shucks, even the town 20 minutes from me has cable--but apparently those that have it complain about it being slightly better than dial-up....

    Tried to get on a different satellite system; they said I was in a low area with too many trees. Best they would estimate was 5Mbps download/upload speed, but they wouldn't guarantee it. I allegedly have 10Mbps at the moment; but my speed tests are much, much lower. When I have work or important stuff to do, I have to wait until I get to work, which is 30 miles away (one way).

    So again, if it's important enough to have a video--shouldn't it be important enough to make sure you have multiple ways for people to get the information? Because if you say anything other than "yes," then I guess you're indicating it's not really that important, aren't you?

    I drive 55 miles one way to work. When something is important to me, I download it to my computer and listen to it on my drive. There are many good videos that do not have a paper equivalent. Sorry about that.

    It's an old method of conspiracy theorists to try to give their garbage information some immediency. As in, "this information is so damaging the Feds will be forcing YouTube to remove it."

    It's clickbait.

    Reminds me of the YouTube videos still out there made when Alex Jones's hair was a bit thicker. *laugh*
