Although that's a fact, I don't actually care about that, but my colleagues (including from headquarters) kept praising me for it. The years…

How to NOT be well known

From what I have discovered as I wonder around, here are some things that publishers/broadcasters do to indirectly say that they do not want to be well known or make more money. That is, assuming that the subject in question has nothing wrong with it.

Use "copyright infringement" as an excuse to remove free promotion by others.With these videos removed, fewer people would know about it, and popularity droppedPeople who have heard about the takedown might have lost interest about the subject that has been removed and would boycott any future releases of the subject concerned, or even the party that has requested the removalIf (1) doesn't happen, they might just block it, place ads, or mute the audio.Limit viewing to only certain countries and a few others. People from countries outside the allowed places can't view them, even if the person viewing it is form the allowed country, but on a holiday or working/studying overseas.Munchy CrumbsiCylinderKoro (葫蘆)Smiling Moving…
