I mean, it's pretty well known there are some paypigs that donate just to "spite" detractors. We've documented such events in the past, with people specifically saying in their messages that it's to spite the haters/saying similar things in chat. And Phil himself has encouraged it, whether it's to spite us specifically or Tevin's crowd or YouTube policies or Machinima or whatever. That's why he tries to paint himself as the struggling hard working average Joe underdog constantly being pushed around by everyone else.This isn't the first time Goutsyde has called out @SoapQueen1 and I don't really get it. Being on the top ten for bits isn't even hard, people have been on there for under $10. Even if they were #1 who cares. The idea that people may give Phil money to get a reaction from detractors isn't absurd. There are people who get angry when Phil gets money so it isn't hard to watch a few ads and get a reaction.
Maybe we need a thread to discuss/debate people who don't want Phil to get 1 cent vs those who don't care/have donated themselves.
We have a thread discussing the merits of throwing pennies at Phil, but I don't think it needs to really be discussed. The conversation basically boils down to "you're dumb." "I think it's funny and it cost me less than a dollar/I just watched ads/my pennies aren't going to make a difference" "giving Phil any money is stupid, you can just troll him for free by saying something in chat" and then repeated variations of that over and over. People who want to do it are going to do it, and the people who are against it aren't going to suddenly change their mind hearing the same repeated argument. IMO, people who want to do it, go nuts, but don't come here bragging about it. If it is something legitimately funny or a good troll, someone else will watch it and mention it on here. It's a good rule of thumb whether you throw money at him or not actually.
