YouTube Channel to be Demonetised…

SilentMode.tv was hit with some bad news (at least for me!) over the Christmas period. The site is still under attack from feminist-hired hackers, but to make things a little worse… I got an email from YouTube, saying that the SilentMode.tv channel would be demonetised from the 20th February.

I thought I’d hop on to give a few thoughts about all the goings on in 2017, to air everything out for a fresh start. Semi-retirement.
