YouTube personality MundaneMatt (government name Matt Jarbo) is in hot water with other YouTube personalities for committing one of the greatest crimes a YouTube personality can commit: flagging videos critical of him as falsely containing inappropriate content.
Personally, I don’t see how this is a big deal. Not really. I assumed most if not all YouTube content creators did this. Where MundaneMatt screwed up is appearing on TheRalphRetort’s #Killstream YouTube channel and then showing a screenshot of his YouTube flagging history. That, and flagging other YouTubers with his main YouTube account. I assume when other YouTubers do this, they either have a friend do it, or they use one of their alt accounts.
Is flagging other YouTube creators a dirty thing to do?
If this seems like a scumball thing to do, remember, he did this to other YouTube creators. Most of them refuse to show their face and insist on using a fake name when making content. At least MundaneMatt shows his face and doesn’t shield his real name as though it’s the equivalent to the nuclear launch codes.
Showing his face is actually a detriment for Matt. He has a face more suited for an old-school audio-only podcast. As far as voices go, he has one of the best on YouTube. The problem is, he looks like a pretentious Kevin Smith without the hockey jersey and trenchcoat.
When I go to YouTube and do a search for MundaneMatt, I find a multitude of videos created within the last 48 hours by all sorts of anonymous edgelords condemning him for flagging other YouTubers and then lying about it. These people need to slow their roll. People who lie about their identity should not be lecturing anyone else about lying.
These people all have garbage people for an audience. If you don’t believe me, go to their comment sections and get a good whiff of the scum populating it.
You should never take advice from anonymous edgelords
Most of these fake people are jumping up and down demanding MundaneMatt address this matter on his channel. For his sake and for the sake of his audience, I hope he doesn’t do that. Much like going on TheRalphRetort’s #Killstream, nothing good can come out of it. MundaneMatt has a responsibility to his audience, not TheRalphRetort, Keemstar, Declan Black, or any of the other cringy edgelords demanding blood and other various bodily fluids.
I’ve criticized Matt in the past. I refuse to criticize him for this non-crime.
Mister Metokur posted his video on MundaneMatt. After watching it, I now legally, morally, and spiritually rescind everything I posted above. I learned Matt’s channel became popular way back when after Zoë Quinn abused the flagging system on YouTube and flagged one of his videos for copyright infringement. He made a video about that and after five years of YouTube obscurity, became an overnight sensation.
I didn’t know this history.
I realize now what MundaneMatt did goes well beyond the normal YouTube creator unethical sketchiness. He went so far past the line of normal professional YouTube creator behavior, he can’t even see Boogie2988 or Jeremy Hambly with a high-powered telescope.
I think MundaneMatt is done being a professional YouTuber. He needs to look into truck driver school. You’ve got to admit he looks like someone hauling cheaply made Chinese goods from one location to another. He looks the type of would enjoy peeing in an empy Gatorade bottle.
