Our critically acclaimed, 90-minute YouTube Lecture, The French Revolution - Good Thing, Bad Thing, has now been viewed over 3,200 times. It has received near universal praise, we're very proud of it and we're VERY appreciative that many of you have done us the honor of giving it a watch.
Still, it was inevitable that SOMEONE was NOT going to like the video we spent over 150 hours putting together.
AND, as expected, it appears that ONE of our 3,200+ viewers enjoyed the video so little that they decided to share their displeasure via a "dislike" our video's page:
It was bound to happen and it's OK that someone took the time out of their day to "dislike" something we made, for free, solely to entertain and inform our community and the world writ large.
Hey, no big deal.
People are allowed to NOT like something and we WILL NOT take this as a personal insult and repudiation of the project as a whole.
In fact, we're going to take that dislike as constructive criticism and use it to fuel ourselves to do better next time. Yeah, that's it - this is a good thing.
I mean, it's ONLY one dislike, we have 190 LIKES. 190:1 is a pretty damn good ratio, if you ask me.
It's possible, even, that the disliker clicked the thumbs down button by accident; meaning to become our 191st liker but instead becoming our 1st disliker. I mean, 190 other people did, in fact, like the video.
We won't assume that, though. No, we're going to use this as motivation. It's good that someone knocked us off our high horse. We gotta remember that Success Is Never Owned, It’s Rented, and The Rent is Due Every Day!
We do wonder, however, what this disliker DIDN'T like about our video. I mean, he or she didn't say, they just hit dislike and went on with their life, leaving us to wonder, for eternity, what EXACTLY led them to dislike our cherished endeavor.
For contrast, many of the people who LIKED the video left us with a lot of positive comments like:
This...is the greatest thing ever....
Absolutely brilliant work. Definitely checking out the rest of the series, and can't wait for more.
Wow, just wow. . . I mean that is HIGH praise.
The disliker, however, left us nothing! Which, you know, is OK! I mean, it's not like we're focusing on the ONE dislike over the 190 Likes.
It's not like were sitting here thinking about what must've gone through the mind of that piece of shit person who clicked dislike and ruined our entire fucking week.
Aheh. . . sorry about that. We didn't mean that at all, what we meant to say was that it WOULD'VE BEEN NICE if the disliker told us WHY they didn't like our video.
You know, some actual feedback, rather than just a blemish on an otherwise PERFECT like:dislike ratio would've been helpful. Instead the disliker pulled down his/her pants and took a large stinky dump all over our psyche.
Seriously, WHO THE FUCK DOES THIS DISLIKER THINK THEY ARE?!
OUR VIDEO WAS REALLY FUCKING GOOD, WE SPENT A LOT OF FUCKING TIME ON IT, WE RELEASED IT FOR FREE AND THIS MALIGNANT COCKSUCKER JUST WALTZES IN AND DROPS A DISLIKE?
HEY, DISLIKER, IF YOU'RE READING THIS, FUCK YOU!
IF WE EVER FIND OUT WHO YOU ARE WE'RE GOING TO SHI. . .
Aheh . . . oopsie doodle.
We TOTALLY did not mean to say all that and what we just said does not repudiate everything that came before it - we're totally going to use this as constructive criticism and not dwell on a single, solitary, dislike.
It's NOT going to ruin us. We promise. We get it, everyone has a right to an opinion.
Even malignant cocksuckers, who can't keep their trash fucking dislikes to themselves.
No problem, we're all good.
If you haven't already, maybe go check out our video - and if you don't like it, please judge us fairly.
We WILL NOT take it personally.
Happy Friday and God Bless America.
