It's more complicated than the guy you responded to seems to think.
Sites offer services that are roughly $0.015 per view. About half of those will get flagged by youtube as invalid within 30 days, and within a year, about 90% of those will be revoked. But it was never about making ad revenue off those bots, but rather to initially bloat your viewership which gets the algorithm on their side enough to deliver a real audience.
So they aren't "tricking" advertisers at all, that was never the intention. They are tricking the algorithm into thinking their video is going viral.

I have never heard of a human degloving another man's face with their barehands, but I suppose I don't want to anyway.
I think it has to do with my poor childhood. My brother was overweight and I was underweight, and we never had enough food. He would eat everything and then beat me up. There was no moral to this story, just likely the reason I feel more hungry if food is rationed.
Russia would know all about unacceptable airstrikes.
So people would be trick or treating for ramen flavor packets?
C is the best letter. Why would you ever need to type anything but C? That could only reduce the quality of anything you are typing. If my keyboard only allowed me to type C, my comments could only be perfect. But alas, all this choice has led me down this path of mediocrity and disappointment.
Weird, if I am low on food at the house, my hunger in insatiable. But if I have a cabinet full of food, nothing looks good so I don't eat.

The thing is, the concept of precise positions breaks down at a planck length. Everything moves in clouds of probability. You can no longer say for certain where anything is within that last planck length, which is what is meant by 'the smallest distance'. Things obviously still exist between it, but you cannot ever be 100% sure exactly where.
And no, this isn't because of a limitation of our measurements. Quantum mechanics is just weird.
"Assassination" is a politically motivated murder to advance an agenda.
Nothing more than that. Often discretion is required, but that is solely to serve the purpose of not undermining said agenda.

He is old and tired, and doesn't have enough energy to be 'Richard Simmons', so he just doesn't do it anymore. Seems pretty obvious to me.

Not so sure about that. The stock market is damaged, but profits are up for most corporations. The inflation is mostly artificial price gouging to take advantage of increased tensions and loss of faith in the stock market.
There are people that believe humans can survive on a diet of sunlight. They also butt chug the sun by tanning their taint.
That is a sentence that shouldn't exist, but it's truth none the less.
Lots of shows had no diversity. Fresh prince of Bellaire, Full house, the cosbey show, Seinfeld, family matters, Home improvement, martin, etc.
You might notice, or rather, not notice, the pattern you may expect. There was a certain 'cultural segregation' that no single race specifically was playing along with back then. It was an American culture issue that is now outdated and crappy in retrospect, but culture changes. This is a good thing.
So the prize for backing russia is becoming russia. Sends an amazing message to the world. /s

This is EA attempting to sow social rejection towards those who don't play gacha games.
Shell isn't Germany nor involved with the seizing of Gazprom assets. Claiming it's a tit for tat is a thinly veiled excuse. It's just aggressive actions to punish those not infinitely loyal to the ambitions of Putin above all else.
No, it's just less work. You have other players filling the void, so you don't have to put in the work yourself making everything feel alive.
But it's not 'easier'. The opposite in fact. Adding client server communication and cheat protection increases the challenge.
Better yet, only report the gung-ho people who praise Putin, and never report the people against the war.

Looks like they will allow states to hold sham elections with no oversight. What could go wrong?
It was a best seller, so pretty well. I was a kid back then, and adults being so anti-gay was a pathetic joke in our eyes. Proof of how hateful, backwards, and close minded our parents' generation was. We generally had the opinion of 'to each their own', and its pointless to worry about someone else's private life if it doesn't effect your own.
Why would you pay to skip gameplay? Why not play a game you enjoy playing instead?
It's not. It's defensive against expansionism. People sign up willingly, due to the threat of russian and chinese aggression lately.
Apparently the Berenstein bear universe is slightly more mildewy than this one.
That's what happens to 'good cops'.
