Why I will no longer post to the internet, and open letter to my hacker

Yesterday I announced via twitter that I will no longer be posting online, I wanted to take this time to further explain myself.  However first I would like to address the person who hacked my HappyCabbie YouTube Account.

 

I don’t care.

 

I don’t, more than likely you hacked into my account to attempt to find out where I worked.  The timing of the hacking makes no sense otherwise.  You can go through my account all you like, you will not find anything connecting me to my job.

 

It is no secret that I found my new job shortly after the Google Summit in San Jose this past September.   I have also tweeted that my job involves some travel and that there have been frequent issues regarding me not getting paid and expenses not being reimbursed.  As much as my job frustrates me, I still need it.  I also draw some satisfaction from the work I do, although it is demoralizing that much of it is without compensation.  I can name off far too many people who have lost their jobs due to what they posted online.  However when I saw two people I respect and admire right in a row lose their jobs I knew it was time to hang it up.

 

Some of you may ask, why I don’t just post non-offensive content.  That isn’t me.  I have opinions and I enjoy sharing them.  Opinions are dangerous when you work in a setting that demands you to conform.  Opinions are like buttholes, everybody has at least one and at least someone else will be offended if they see it.  There is no just thing as a non-offensive opinion.  I currently do not have screw you money.  I need my job, even though many times I go without a paycheck.  If the time comes that I have screw you money perhaps I will return, but not until then.

 

What I need to focus on now is saving up my money and investing it when I can to ensure that I one day have screw you money.  So to the person who hacked my YouTube account, remember this.  I can undo any damage you do to my account, in the end I just don’t care any more.

 

To those who I became friends with, I thank you.  It pains me to have to walk away from all this but look on the bright side.  I lived full time as a YouTuber for 2 years.  Very few people can say that.  Ive been featured on national television.  Not many can say that.  I’ve been on the YouTube home page, in their spotlight.  Almost nobody gets that honor, yet I have had all these.  And most importantly I have gotten to know many of you.  You are not just names on a screen, you were real people.  I thank you.

 

Yours always,

 

HappyCabbie

Why I have changed my mind about helping Corky

About a month ago, I was on a Google Hangout hosted by TheBrainEnema.  She thought it was a good idea to invite Corky into the room.  The purpose of this blog starts at the 3 hour mark of the video.

 

 

Corky has been going through a rough patch.  He has blown through $100,000 in about a year and is now back to where he was.  Living in a motor home.  Gone is his new corvette, his rented house, pretty much everything else went to yard sales.  He is either moved out completely or is in the process of doing so.

 

About two months ago, someone posted a couple of videos driving by Corky’s house.  I can certainly sympathise.  I remember when my address got leaked out to the internet and a video of my place showed up.  I quickly got it taken down.  I guess out of pity, I told Corky I would try and see if I could get the videos removed.  The very next day I realized what a foolish mistake this was.  However now is the first time I can put my words to text and explain why I should not help Corky.

 

First, let’s not forget who was responsible for the entire internet having my home address.  While I can not prove that it was Corky who found it first (I honestly don’t think he is smart enough to know how) he WAS responsible for giving out my address to every person he could find.  I had several people inform me that they got messages from him.  So basically, Corky made his bed, he should sleep in it.

 

The second reason that it is wrong to help Corky is because of Corky’s track record for biting the hand that feeds him.  Anyone remember when he posted a video asking for a notebook so he could continue and I bought him a brand new laptop with a two year warranty.  Only to have two months later see him accuse me of putting keyloggers on the computer to hack into his facebook.  Anyone remember when he was facing eviction in 2011 and I offered him a home, then he posted several videos attacking me and how long I had to defend myself against those.

 

He has accused me of being a terrorist, a pedophile, a murderer and anything else he thinks people will believe.  He actually has people convinced that I posted videos attacking him on my channel.  Seriously, people blindly think this.  Not many but there are some.  Of course the truth is out there for anyone to see, all I have is videos rebutting his crazy and baseless accusations against me with hard factual evidence.  

 

While I lament the fact that Corky has someone posting videos of his house, the fact remains that if videos still existed of my place, Corky would see to it that they were shared across the internet.  One thing that history has taught me is that it is dangerous to help Corky.  

 

Now to the person doing this.  It is an ethical taboo to post someone’s personal information on the internet.  That is all I will say on the matter.  

Is MeganSpeaks exploiting tragedy for money?

I would like to put forward the following pieces of information.

“Can someone tell me a summary of Kony 2012 video” From MyLifeInATent on twitter

At the time of this post it was 23 hours ago.  Then just 2 hours later a video is posted by http://www.youtube.com/followyourdamnleader  I am not going to embed the video but I will embed MeganSpeaks’ response to it.

Now in this video, particualy at 0:54 she says she found this video by searching on YouTube for Joseph Kony.  Well I searched for Joseph Kony and Kony 2012 videos and as you can see below it is very hard to find.  I searched page after page and still I found nothing.  So how exactly did she find this video?

So how did she “find” this video when at the time of this blog post the ONLY way to find it is to search out the exact video title.

In fact when she filmed her video the video in question had less than 1000 views and by the time of this screen cap from a user in Sweeden the video had already been approved as a video response.

Another question I would like to ask, is why this “troll” is linking back to her video thus giving her more views and thus more money?  The answer is obvious.  We all know who is behind that mask.  This is nothing more than their latest attempt to cash in, only this time they are cashing in on the exploitation of children.

At the time of this post you will notice that Megan and some other kid are the only two video responses.

At 1:23 of Megan’s video she says when she “found” the video it already had over 1000 dislikes so she knew it would get a ton of hate (Views=Money)

So she created her video not to show support for the Kony 2012 documentary but rather to cash in on this hater video that she “found” by searching for it on YouTube. Furthermore she even monetized the video. Way to cash in on the exploitation of innocent children there. I think we all know who is really behind that mask.

I actually did make a video of my own for the Kony 2012 video. It was a 30 second promo. If anyone wants to see it you can search for HappyCabbie Kony2012 on YouTube. I did however take my video down due to the totally unexpected backlash I got from my subscribers for supporting a documentary that seeks to end forced child slavery and violence. Oh well.

Another gripe is that she monetized the video.  So instead of using her subscriber base to promote a well done documentary, she decides to promote a troll video instead and then manages to get her video response approved so all the haters can find her channel and thus more views and money for her.

I thought about doing this in video form but I am currently working on a much larger project.  For those who wish to see the documentary it is embedded here.

I posted this on WordPress because this blog is NOT monetized.  While I did receive quite a negative backlash for promoting this documentary, I still think it is worth watching.  I do not wish to profit from it so I posted the blog here.

 

UPDATE 4:18 P.M. March 8th 2012

KmartinTV has just posted this video here.

As you can see from the time of this post the video has less than 300 views.  It is monetized and a new annotation has popped up on the troll video linking back to this video.

 

You will also notice the other video response from 2slick902 was removed.  The video is still up at the time of this post.  So now we have concrete proof that MeganSpeaks knowingly set out to promote a troll so she and KmartinTV could both profit from it.  It is clear in my opinion that MeganSpeaks and KmartinTV have no regard for anyone else other than themselves.  Although I will admit I did expect this troll to be LifeInATent and not his twin brother.

 

My conversation with MeganLeeHeart

MeganLeeHeart's First message to me from her gaming channel

This is the first half of her long message to me, I will embed the videos below

This is the second half of her message

So then I replied

Well this is my reply to MeganLeeHeart

So this is her pretty much telling me that she will not leave her alone

I respond

My reply was based on two twitter messages sent to me from her boyfriend

LifeInATent's tweet about reporting me to Machinima

LifeInATent tries to pretend that MeganLeeHeart is in a different network

LifeInATent deleted this tweet but someone grabbed it just in time

This was the final message she sent me before I blocked her.

Well as I have already documented she is not copying your videos.  Both of you simply did a video on a news story and MeganLeeHeart simply uploaded hers first.  MeganLeeHeart is not the only source of news on the internet.  There is of course Google News and when all else fails there is always television.  If MeganLeeHeart truly believes that people are going to her channel for the news of the day, well I got some ocean front property in Arizona I would like to sell her.

This is not just some petty fight that sprang up out of nowhere.  In fact this is not a fight.  A fight involves two parties.  A fight does not even require two consenting parties.  One can simply be the aggressor and the other can be defending themselves.  This is not a fight.  This is one lady who has been harassed on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook for several months now.  Despite her repeated requests to be left alone they have not done so.  Her only crime, she sometimes gets more views than MeganLeeHeart and therefore must be destroyed.

Now here is where it gets funny.  MeganLeeHeart apparently is afraid for her life because of  TheReplyGirl

Forward to 4:35 seconds into the video for that screen shot.

MeganLeeHeart there is a reason you have the reputation you do on YouTube.  You have the reputation you do because of your behavior both past and present.   You and your boyfriend attack anyone who dares to speak out and criticise you.  You first threaten them with physical violence and when that doesn’t work you threaten to report them to YouTube.  How is that working out for you two?

For someone who claims to have direct access with youtube and the ability to shut down anyone’s channel via a phone call, why is it that your past channels have not been restored?
