My 17 year old son showed me a trick that does not involve adblocker.

When the video opens quickly scroll forward just past each ad mark in succession then scroll back to the beginning and no ads should play as breaks in the video.
It's funny I have tried this and on some videos it works and some it doesn't.

Haha, maybe that's why I don't get views - I'm almost always smokin' a stogie in my vids.

I don't point it out, or highlight it, or suggest anyone else do it. It's just there, 'cause that's who I am.

Yeah, it seems unfair, but at the end of the day YouTube is a website owned by a company with a TOS, that favors their advertisers. So if they are anti-Tabacco the algorithm may penalize us at the end of the day. Doh!

I know it not a popular opinion - but I hate adds and the obsesion to monitizen channels , I think YT was a better place when people did it for the love of doing it and not as a job . I have an add blocker and I suport channels by purchasing merch and giving patreon . I move my patreon cash around every now and then to support new channels .
True, but they (YouTube) need to pay the bills somehow. : )

I will say that since my Bagger Showdown video was posted, my views are up many hundreds of percents. I'm not sure of the exact numbers, but I've seen at least a doubling of views, along with almost 10 new subs in the last week or 2.

I'm not gonna change who I am - that's against the point of my channel anyway. If it never pans out, oh well.
