Okay. I'm not familiar with any of these folks (don't watch Youtube for much more than football highlights), but if they are getting some backing via Patreon, et al, that's much closer to what's happening on STEEM than basically getting entertained for free while volunteering to be a target for YouTube ads.
Maybe there is leftist or similar ideology involved in all of this. Kind of hard to tell which way the philosophical winds are blowing at any given time. Seems like "what benefits me the most" is more the ideology, with a heaping side of intolerance for anything "I don't like, or doesn't benefit me." :)
