I remember. But it's not that way these days. The internet was a mistake but monetising the internet was worse.Idk how much this applies here, but some of us are old enough to remember when YouTube was something people did because they wanted to. There was no ads, no creator program, no merch, no superchats, and no Patreon.
Every "innovation" in the history of YouTubers has been incrementally making the platform more expensive for viewers, either in time or cash, for very little obvious benefit to them.
