Man I'm more sick of people whining about "this gives our sport a bad image" than I am of the actual video. It's a stupid video that will not change anyone's view of anything. Stop being so silly

Oh, because I am being silly.

I love how this thread made a complete 180°. I pointed out a video that is clearly unsafe, not to mention stupid and somehow I became the bad guy in this whole thing.

Bah, what do I care. It's St-Paddy's day, time for some good Irish beer.

Unfortunately, thats not how youtube, the internet, or freedom works.
Their freedom/right to post dumb stupid stuff trumps whatever negative view it may impose on paintball. If it makes you feel any better, a fews years back when the original vid was posted on youtube, we gave em a lot of hell for it.

People voicing their opinion and asking youbtube to take a video down is not cencorship. That is an ignorant stance.
They are free to put the video up, and those who care about the public perception of paintball are free to pursue avenues to have it removed. Freedom goes both ways.

This is not a response to any particular post, just the thread in general.

True- Youtube is unconcerned about a video's impact on the reputation of a niche hobby with a checkered history of legality.

They are, however, concerned with ensuring that their content adheres to their user guidelines, which means that videos of paintball "violence" or "dangerous acts" that violate their terms of service can and will be pulled if they are brought to administrative attention. Where they would draw the line is a matter of subjective judgment, but if they wanted to pull the video, they would...

...and of course the content uploaders would be free to take their video to worldstarhiphop or wherever, because that's how Worldstar, the internet, and freedom works.

And all of that is ignoring the fact that the video Hook posted was stolen to begin with.

Ill throw in my 2¢. Bad press is way more harmful than good press will help our sport. Things like this should be flagged for removal by anyone who cares about our game growing. lets say this video did work to help paintball grow. Is that the sort of people you want? I do a much as I can to portray this sport in a good way. Talking to parents at the field and answering any questions they might have. I take that upon myself because its what I want. I want te see ppl come back and have a good time. To say that hurting our image is a silly thing, is ridiculous. Gainman has moments you have to ignore. Very few ppl play this game long term. We stay alive with the blood of young children muhaha. No but kids, its all about kids and making pb grow.
