If you are upset why not vote the video down - he will get the message a little eventually. Better yet, let him know - politely. If you just rage-view it you are giving him views, and so may be inadvertently giving net encouragement.
I know getting rage-view hits is sometimes an actual tactic, but this one has so few likes you could do some serious counter “messaging”. Just saying! >
There is always a chance you will actually make the world a tiny bit better - someone may hear you besides the usual suspects.
How does one do that(those) thing(s). I certainly will send a message.
Edit: I figured out that by going directly to youtube I could give a thumbs down to the video and leave a comment. What is saddening is all the comments about what a great video/fisherman, etc. he/it is. Unsettling. I have said many times I will be glad that I'll be dead when folks of his ilk and age come to power.
Th worst part is, he won't care one bit what we think. I can hear the ridicule of us coming out of his face as I type this. How did people become so self-centered and clueless? I guess it doesn't matter; they just are.
P.S. He doesn't look that big. Some of my younger salmon fishing friends in New Brunswick would definately show him the error of his ways should he attempt to "surround them."
With the crowd I have been running with for the past 30+ years dirtbag is actually a compliment (Fred Beckey?). We prefer to use the terms douchebag and a$$h0LE. The difference between the two is a douchebag knows he's doing it.I did what I said I was going to do...posted a comment on what I thought of these guys and added a dislike as well. Dirtbags......
It might be the only outdoor recreation they have and the only way to get out and cool down and enjoy the river. Id chalk it up to ignorance and move on as you did.Yesterday I was practicing my two handed casts on a Ohio trib when a family of five set up a camp chair fifty yards up river and proceeded to yell and splash all the way down to my spot. I quietly reeled up and walked away to jeers of "look at all of these fish here!." I don't know if it was ignorance or intentional rudeness. I felt sorry for the kids whose father is a jerk. They don't have a chance of learning manners. I found another quiet place to cast. River karma will find them to their disadvantage. I found my solitude elsewhere. There's a peaceful place within walking distance. It's best to move on and find it.
