Hello Zen Archer Fans, Foes, and Guests!

If you have watch my videos you know I am one of the most even tempered, calm, and helpful people around.  Recently, just as MadV was leaving YouTube, He messaged me and asked that I join a new forum that was supposed to be about YouTube called YouTubeTalk.  I did as he requested since he and I were pretty good friends.

My 1st reaction to the site was that it was a FAN CLUB for A YouTube woman known as FilthyWhore.  MadV was also a Highlighted member and they had a section for EMOKid21Ohio ( although I could not find his name or any posts from him on the forum.

I didn't post much and was an observer most of the time.  There was a difference of opinion about a slang word used by FilthyWhore between some members there.  I gave my opinion in support of her use of the word ( the other guy felt it was a negative word ). Other Members also gave their views and things got heated.  But when someone put a poll up asking should the other user be removed or banned, I voted NO ACTION be taken.  He had an opinion and defended it.. I believed that was a good thing.  He thanked me for being tolerance.

Later someone asked.. WHO runs this forum as well as responding to my "suggestion" which was posted in the Suggestion Area about Highlighting more popular YOUTUBE people since the forum was supposed to be about YOUTUBE.  The Nameless Admin said "Oh its just a bunch of youtube users who thought a place like this was needed" & that the popular YouTube people were highlighted in the "more known users" area… I am paraphrasing here.


In an effort to be helpful as well as because I was also interested in the questions asked, I posted the following.. this is an exact copy.


For what it's worth..

I think I have been a positive influence here on YouTubeTalk.  The Administrators are doing the best job they can, I am sure.  However,  I do Not find this a reflection of the YouTube community. Nor do I find any good reason for it to exist as it currently is.

The People on YouTube who ARE indeed Popular there, and with good reason, are pushed to the "OH AND the Other Guys You may know of" Section.

I find that approxamitely 70% of the posts are arguing and back biting.  Unless I am ready to either bash someone or "go along" bashing someone.. there is little or no place to post.

People tend to use this as a CHAT rather than a message board.

When the admin here are asked who they are, their response is just Oh we are just a bunch of guys.  I think the Wizard of OZ also hid behind a curtain.  I have to wonder about the agendas of people afraid to stand in the open.

All I realy see is a lot of wheel spinning and no movement.  I wish the admin all the luck in the world and I will leave my userid here to check back and watch to see if things change. (if I am allowed to by the admin ) But at this point I don't realy see any honest attempt to make that happen.

and… so…  Posts from me here will be rare, if at all.  I will no longer mention YTT in my vlogs nor point others to the site.  I simply don't feel comfortible recommending the site since  my feelings about it are what they are.  I will try to check back.

For those who are friends of mine here, I will be on YouTube and you are welcome to post a message to me there if you like.

I wish you all Positive Karma, Peace, and Enlightenment.. Be Well!  ~ Zen Archer


I was worried that maybe I had "written them off" too soon and did check back for a response.  The Admin did reply saying, this was about my LACK of Fame on YouTube or YouTube Chat.  That the POPULAR YouTubers were Highlighted ( they were in the "More Well Known" Topic along with ME (duh!).  They also challenged me to name who runs Google or Yahoo or AOL..

I replied that since those were Big Companies, I had no Idea, but I also knew that they made the info available for anyone looking for it.  AND that I did know that YOUTUBE was created by the people who created PALTALK and the way I knew was because the were Above Board Enough to PUT UP A VIDEO all about it.  I then wished them the best.. ( as I always do ) and logged off.

I checked back to see a response only to find.. this message…

"Sorry ZenArcher, you are banned from using this forum!

Reason: You are suspended indefinitely for being disruptive to this forum. In its critical infancy, you are being destructive to the creative and growth process, with continuous misrepresentative information and erroneous assumptions. "

I later found at least 2 other members who were banned at the same time.  I know that One was the person who asked about who they were.

In conclusion.. I am not a person who goes looking for trouble or a battle.  As a Rule I do not get involved in squabbles.  But if you are going to choose to become a member of this FAN CLUB FORUM.. be careful.. and Don't Rock the BOAT if you intend to be there long.

In an Attempt to make ME and the Questions go away, the Admin of YouTubeTalk have removed the messages that were there.  So you will be INFORMED what you are dealing with there, I have retold the story here where it won't be deleted.

This Post will also be available on my Blog at WordPress..
when I can get it posted.. under.. THE WINDING ROAD category.

As Always, I wish you.. Positive Karma & Be Well!  ~ Zen Archer

  1. I understand where you are coming from here. I was asked to join that YTT site also but when I went to it to me it looked like the only reason it was set up was to get donations for certin users. There is a better site set up now that actually looks like a forum it is

  2. Thanks for your Comment…

    Yes I am aware of the new site and infact a member. I don’t get there or to any of the forums as often as I like.. I am pretty busy with life outside the box & usualy busy with youtube projects when on. sigh.. all work and no play!

    Be Well! ~ Zen Archer
