Only got half way through and had enough of how many different ways the term "idiots" was used.
How 'bout a video about how to best create a video knife review, and why your way is the best way?

Have to agree with Steve. OK you have some pet peeves. Tell everyone
how to make sure your knife review is excellent quality. Tell us the
pitfalls that make a review subpar.

I don't watch or read to many knife reviews but it's not rocket science :D

I hate people who post a link to youtube instead of explaining their thoughts in plain text.

I was asked by a magazine that I have written a few articles for, to do a knife review.
I found the knife to be way overpriced and not all that comfortable for use in the way that I work.
I gave an honest review, which was heavily edited. I was told that the producer of the knife was a major advertiser for the publication, and therefore reviews for their products should be positive.
This experience confirms my suspicions concerning reviews in magazines: DO NOT TRUST THEM! They are just a form of advertising.

Mel, not sure if you're aware but that link is to his actual YouTube channel. He's explaining his thoughts in the spoken word :D

Hey Steve
I didn’t use the term “idiots” anywhere in the video.
The video wasn’t designed to point out the best way to create a knife review, rather the point of the video was to highlight the fact that some knife reviewers have no knowledge of either the knife they are reviewing or even knives in general

Although the term "idiots" wasn't used directly, I felt it was implied in various (I used the word "different") ways throughout the portion I watched.
And even now you state the purpose of your video was to point out idiots.

See? That right there proves you're not an idiot. What makes an idiot an idiot is they don't know they're idiots! ::super_happy::

Hey - you actually made your point in plain text! Much better than a link to some place we might not want to visit.

Not a good reason to hate someone. This place should be for love of knives, not spreading hate for certain people.
