    The Verge is ensuring that no one ever forgets its PC build by taking aggressive action against content creators who criticized its mistakes, after admitting issues with the video and pulling it entirely. We had all walked away from this but, months later, The Verge has brought the issue back and is abusing the copyright claim system in the process.

    Links to Amazon and Newegg are typically monetized on our channel (affiliate links) and may return a commission of sales to us from the retailer. This is unrelated to the product manufacturer. Any advertisements or sponsorships are disclosed within the video ("this video is brought to you by") and above the fold in the description. We do not ever produce paid content or "sponsored content" (meaning that the content is our idea and is not funded externally aside from whatever ad placement is in the beginning) and we do not ever charge manufacturers for coverage.
