How much of that is social media and how much of that is simply raised expectations from the extra hype? I mean, I've been left scratching my head wondering why a tournament was getting lots of word-of-mouth praise, none of which I heard from social media (some such instances pre-dated social media in general). On the other hand, I've been pleasantly surprised and impressed by events that were rather low key on promotion and word-of-mouth reputation. Events that I wouldn't say were actually great, but far exceeded my admittedly low expectations and allowed me to leave with a great impression of the day.

Just speaking for myself:

I want to clarify that I'm not opposed to DD because of their social media presence specifically. I don't do much social media at all (except for DGCR, of course!) And also I'm a big fan of Jomez. They make good frolf videos; that's kinda my jam.

Get paid by views? Page hits?

Out of curiosity, how long do I have to watch a video for it to be considered a 'view'?

I believe that people can like what you like, dislike what you dislike. That is all fine. Just try not to be a dickbag about things. Let other people enjoy things in peace.
Some of us can also dislike DD that do not have social media. That naming schema alone is enough to run me away. Add on that the antics of certain employees both here and on youtube....... there be your dickbags.

The whole "bad press is still good press" keeps me from making more snarky comments than I do. I do not want to help DD by saying bad things about them. Perhaps we can just be silent and they will just go away?

Thread drift on the thread drift. I really like DD's naming scheme. At least they have a theme that they are sticking to.*

***Except for the Raider. I am not sure on that one.

Nikko's contract is apparently a 2 year thing...so I stand by my earlier statement that he will be a free agent next year.
