We don't live in the era of content-scarcity any more, where any content is always better than no content, and more content is always better than less content.

If worse content gets in the way or distracts from better content, the worse content *makes the product worse*.

If your bad video clutters up Youtube searches and makes good ones harder to find, your bad content *made the world worse.*

@mogwai_poet This means I need to spam more bad videos both as passive aggression to the world and, more importantly, to help decrease YouTube's profitability. Anything you can do to reduce the financial stability of large companies is a good thing.
