Educate and Eradicate. Making sure that this NEVER happens again.

Ever since Sam Pepper uploaded the "Fake Hand Ass Grab Prank" video many top YouTubers have been outed for abusive behaviour towards their fans and subscribers, including but not limited to sexual assault, sexual harassment, manipulation of minors, grooming, and even statutory rape and rape.

During the weeks which have followed Sam Peppers video a post appeared on Tumblr listing all of the YouTubers who have been found to be active in one or more of the above as well as proof of their actions.

The reason I am posting this is mainly for my own reference, but I believe it may be of use to others. I am not claiming to be the author of this list, I am just another blogger who is reblogging it.
I have linked the source below which I assume will be updated as more abusive YouTubers are found.

Alex Day defending himself.
"I don’t know about anyone else but when I read Alex’s post it seemed (as Marina would say) hella manipulative. From what I’ve gathered he knows what to say and when to say it which is how all of this started." (x)
YouTube: Alex uploaded an unlisted video in May. Read what it’s about here.
ED BLANN / eddplant
YouTube: Ed uploaded a new video on the 6th of June 2014, singing a song called “Inhuman Nature”. I am not going to link the video since I DO NOT encourage you to watch it. Don’t show your support for him in anyway.
TOM McLEAN / frezned
He hasn’t acknowledged the accusations against him.

To end, this post, this is the video that I (iJim) uploaded, voicing my opinions on the subject.
As a side note, at the time of writing this I am unsure as to what to do next, part of me feels like cutting myself off from YouTube as a whole, I don't what to be associated in any way with these types of monster, the words Guilty by association keep pushing its way to the front of my mind, even though I don't know any of these people past the point of being subscribed to a few of their channels, the association is YouTube.
Seeing how the YouTube community has pulled together to purge this poison from our network has inspired me so much you would not believe it, not only pulling together to cut these deviants off from the YouTube community as a whole, but to offer support and advise to those who have suffered at the hands of these deviants,  as well as offering advice and education to all of YouTubes fans.
