    If you YouTube a lot, you probably have noticed that there are kids that have been hosting these "contests" where you spam a bunch of comments on there videos and subscribe to them for free MacBooks, iPods, 360s, etc.

    1. How can you give away hundreds to thousands of dollars of equipment, especially at that age? I can barely afford such luxuries, much less give it away. So maybe their parents make bank, but if they were my child I would be the automatic winner of the contest.

    2. There are many ways to cheat to get yourself high ranked on YouTube and this is just another cheap trick for that 5 minutes of fame.

    3. These contest should be regarded as spam and removed accordingly.

    And no I didn't enter in a contest and not win and feel like I should lash out, because of that. :p

    Do you think I'm out of line?

    As answer to your first question, perhaps they don't? As in those gadgets don't actually exist. Or if they do, the pre-pubescents don't actually plan to part with them.

    I've seen these and they are sometimes funny to watch. I like it best when they are trying to hate on each other buy saying the other one is a loser so comment about me and you will win. :cool:
