by his logic HLTV Forum users should get a big percentage of HLTV Ad revenue as we are the onces producing traffic to the site @Jonathan E - PM me, I give you my paypal

well, isn't this what happend to youtube, instagram and twitch?

2020-08-04 16:05
But I'd say thats bc that is their buisness modell - Share their revenues accordingly so people spend more time streaming/creating videos and bring more traffic to their side

Jez, only content creators get paid, not the ones who watch it. What he meant was the audiences should get paid since they were the ones who generated the traffic.

no need to be a dick, mate. specially if this isn't your conversation :) i understood what he meant, but we are NOT producing traffic to the site, we are the traffic and this is different from creating content, thus, generating traffic. edit: thanks for removing the unpolite part.

No offense, Just a harmless joke, but I figured this was not my thread. And people tend to be sensitive these days.

yes, commenting something based on your misunderstanding and still be condencending implying that others have no brain is totally fine and those who don't like it are too sensitive.
2020-08-04 16:34
There is a difference between a government and people
2020-08-04 16:04
He struggles to get out of bed and dress himself, he’s definitely brain deficient, when you cannot reason with a person because they cannot grasp simple logic and factual information you know they’re uneducated clowns, sorry Jonathan but you’re stupid!

He is still furious that TikTok users took the piss on him with his Tulsa rally? "Oh Tjai-nah is spying on our kids via TikTok. Check out my new Huawei phone btw"
2020-08-04 16:05
Dude some of TikToks management has CCP people in it.
2020-08-04 16:08
That really goes without saying, it is a Chinese company after all. And I understand why Trump would want to force ByteDance to sell TikTok, but why is he asking for the US treasury to get a part of the deal? And Microsoft and ByteDance are somehow supposed to figure out the legal precedent for paying the US treasury for the deal.
2020-08-04 16:11
Nobody is paying the us treasury. There is no legal base. If he forces it, he and the us government will be sued. He is just saying it to win support from conservatives. This is a smart move for trump. Tiktok users are not gonna vote him anyway. Trump also pusnished the Wall Street for giving him a hard time, which happens to invest heavily on tiktok. More importantly, he screwed a chinese company. One stone three birds. Btw, China has immediately launched a lawsuit against apple in china. It’s getting interesting.
2020-08-04 16:26
"He is just saying it to win support from conservatives" He's trying to win support he already has? No dude he needs to be winning over independents, they're the ones that swing elections. And strange statements like this one aren't gonna do that.
2020-08-04 16:31
Conservatives are questioning him not going hard enough towards china. He is losing ground in Texas. Can u believe it? Btw, there is no way on earth that he is gonna win over independents right now, thanks to the pandemic and He is falling behind big margins over all the swing states. He needs a miracle to win the election.
2020-08-04 16:39
Most conservatives are definitely not gonna vote for Joe Biden over him lmao. And Texas is in contention because the state has relatively conservative independents that aren't gonna vote for Trump, even though they usually vote Republican. The conservative vote is already guaranteed, but he's continuing to lose support among conservative leaning independents.
2020-08-04 16:42
Dude... most chinese corporations only work as long as they allow government control and interference. You can't trade with a chinese corporation without the CCP giving it clearence. So? America doesn't have a problem importing all sort of chinese products well knowing they are ultimately controlled by the CCP. Do you have a problem using Google when you are well aware that American Intelligence agencies can ask for (and do) all your info if they find you a person of interest? The best tools for surveillance comes from the US Intelligence Agencies (like Snowden revealed). The Equation Group are responsible for far more damaging things, like exploits eventually leaked and used by hackers as we saw with WannaCry (that used an exploit the Americans already knew about but refused to tell anyone so it could be patched). I'm sorry I ain't afraid of China as much as I'm afraid of American and Russian Intelligence agencies.
2020-08-04 16:14
"I'm sorry I ain't afraid of China as much as I'm afraid of American and Russian Intelligence agencies." Well then youre just plain stupid.

2020-08-04 16:56
Well I'd argue that if you don't wanna learn from history, you're stupid. So please remind me again which large nation has been exposed in spying on foreign and domestic people of interest via a comprehensive cyber-program?

I'm sorry but your answer missed the mark by 7200 miles.
2020-08-04 19:13
No im correct.
2020-08-04 19:27
I don't know if the word correct is the one I'd use but you're definitely something, that's for sure.
2020-08-04 19:30
No im correct.
2020-08-04 19:41
And obv the CCP wants to spy on the US
2020-08-04 16:09
The CCP wants to spy on 14 year old american kids on TikTok? GTFOH! China probably want to spy on industrial manufacturers, R&D projects and the US administration. But your average TikTok user? Probably not.
2020-08-04 16:16
Listen dumbass people who work high up in the government have tik tok and so does their kids.
2020-08-04 16:34
Chances are it's easier to program things into firmware (which china produces and exports quite a bit of) than use freaking TikTok to spy on people. The major hacks we've seen often come from phishing emails and social engineering. TikTok is the least likely attack vector and doesn't have a high chance of success (and the problem with large quantity intelligence gathering is you have to sort all that info afterwards, determine who is a person of interest and who isn't. It's not easy at all).
2020-08-04 17:16
Imagine being TikTok and Microsoft. You have a couple of weeks to make a deal. And Trump, who's obviously just mad about TikTok users ruining his Tulsa rally, is throwing in bizarre, nonsensical conditions like they somehow need to pay off the US treasury for the deal.
2020-08-04 16:06
trump what?

banning an app and then getting money on it for the government? high iq move to get easy money
2020-08-04 17:04
Under which law would the treasury get a portion of the deal? Lmao. And TikTok is chump change in the grand scheme of things, he could focus his energy on saving money in larger ways.
