Recently, a channel on Youtube, h3h3Productions, did a reaction video to one of E.A. Koetting’s older videos about reversing a curse. It has garnered over 100,000 views and has had many people flooding E.A.'s videos with comments and spam.
Here is thie video:
When I saw this, and the comments, it was easy to realize that this was just going to lead to trolling. And it did. Nothing exactly new here. If anything it is bringing more attention to E.A.'s work and that of black magick in general, but it is in a widely negative manner. So while more people will become aware of it none will go at it without a trolling mindset and, instead, will attack based on clothing, hair gel, Christian themes etc. Basically Ad Hominem arguments left and right.
So, what do you make of this? Do you think that the attention is good regardless of it being negative, or is all publicity good publicity? Will this further tarnish the reputation of what we and others do? Will this prevent others who may have been interested in exploring this, trying it for themselves, from taking that first step of at least giving a new experience an honest shot?
