To EBW. If It Isn't Broke, Don't Fix It!!

I have been on this web site for a little over a year now and I've had fun for the most part. I've seen lots of cool videos & pictures and have met some cool people too. When the site changed its format a few months back it was a little weird at first, but I think we all got used to it pretty quickly. However, there have been a few things that have come up as time has gone on that have been a little awkward, annoying, and somewhat disturbing.

Well I have to say that the first thing that was annoying to me was the advertising videos that would come on while you were trying to watch an EBW video and you'd have to stop, find it on the upper right side top or the very right side bottom and mute it, but then one minute would go by then another one came on anyway. Boy a lot of people complained! The ones who didn't found a way around it like using Firefox to access EBW and the ads didn't work anymore. Well I think they learned that it's not a good Idea to do that.

The thing that is awkward is that when you view a video to the end and you start to make a comment the screen goes blank and then another video starts that was in line and it erases the comment you started, then you have to hit the "back" arrow to go back to the video you just got done watching and then hit "pause" to stop the video and type your comment again without being bothered.

The somewhat disturbing thing is the editing that goes on when you get a video featured. It doesn't happen to everyone but it does happen. For example: I posted a video a few weeks back about 2 13 year olds who plotted and succeeded in killing their grandmother. Well in the subtitle I wrote " these sick f**ks need to hung by their toenails and be tortured" or something to that effect. Well when it got featured it got changed completely. It said " 13 year olds plot to kill grandma. HORRIBLE!" . Well my question is : Who were we going to offend? I wrote the F word with the stars in the missing letters to censor it so why change it? What I wrote showed more outrage, I thought.

Look, I like this site, but from what I'm seeing EBW is starting to be more like the new YouTube. Ads popping in while you're trying to watch a video, yet there are ads all over the place flooding the rest of the page. If you're gonna edit then please don't completely change the title or subtitle. If you don't like "Sick F**Ks maybe "Sick Kids" would be better without throwing out the rest.

Am I the only one that feels this way?

Now racism. I don't like racism and I think if every Black, Hispanic, Asian, or Indian was always made to feel inferior then that to me is crossing the line, but if it was put into a joking format would that be ok? My favorite comedian is Richard Pryor cause I think he had the greatest white man jokes! I didn't get offended, and if you watch one of his old videos, you'll see a half white and half black audience. Why is that? Maybe it was because the people there were secure with themselves and understood that it was a joke. What happened? Why are we so afraid of stepping on egg shells? I thought EBW didn't follow the norm. To me there are two kinds of people. Decent humans that make mistakes but learn from them or just plain outright trashy a**holes who will do anything to make you feel inferior!! Please EBW don't worry about what every other site does and if someone offends me, I'm a big boy, I can defend myself without crying to the mods or going up to the chief. Please, if it isn't broke, don't fix it!!

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to hear what the owners have to say. Maybe it'll clear things up cause I really would like to continue having fun and relaxing here. This place is my release as I'm sure it's a lot of other peoples as well.

Best Regards,
