I'm not familiar with secure team 10. Why are they automatic hoax?
We (ATS Staffers) have been struggling with the "YouTube hoax channels set up as click bait for ad revenue" issue for years...
I'd love to expose them all in a huge way but the old saying "there is no bad PR" keeps popping into my mind when I consider how to go about doing that.
When we find or are made aware of a thread on ATS that has one of these hoaxer's videos as the main topic we send them to the HOAX Forum. We publicly announce, from time to time, which channels have been proven themselves worthy of this distinction as a heads up to our membership.
The kind of people who create hoax UFO videos for no other purpose than to rake in some easy YT ad revenue are going to continue to do so as long as YT makes it a viable business. I'm happy to see our members don't want to help them.
ETA: It occurs to me that these hoaxers aren't just making money from lying and cheating, they're doing the dirty work for any organization that may want to make sure the topic never gets taken too seriously. edit on 1-10-2015 by Springer because: (no reason given)
