    But some of the people he's worked with have gotten attacked over this, and he has been dropping bits of his product on social media for a while now, getting the Snyder Cut movement even more hyped up. Which is good for the people who are reasonable, but also hypes up the lunatics. He's involved, it wouldn't hurt to throw out the occasional "hey guys, cut out the death threats" comment.
    You're assuming that he's even aware that people have made death threats. This is first I've heard about it as I don't have any interest in wasting my time on the worst parts of online fandom. Snyder seems pretty happy limiting his social media stuff to his account on Vero where he can answer questions from his fans and that's about it as far as I know. Frankly, I don't blame him, or any other celebrity, for not wanting to wade through the sewer of Twitter, Facebook or YouTube comments. That's enough to drive a man to depression and, after a losing a daughter to suicide, I totally understand his desire to stick to the positive side of fandom.

But the toxic elements were by far the most visible, so there is the nagging suspicion that that is what drew their attention.
    If that was what drew their attention to the movement, they'd have done what any other PR-sensitive company would have done and ignored them which was what they were doing for three years.

    But this isn't an appreciation thread. If people are barging in there and talking crap, then they are jerks. I don't know if that's the case currently on here, but it's very wrong for them to do that if so.

    This isn't set up as a "positive only" thread though. It's open and there are gonna be a wider array of opinions.
    Totally agreed. Nothing wrong with healthy debate as long as everyone is being respectful towards each other and willing to change their mind.

    It probably has more to do with the lack of content for the streaming. Somewhere, somebody did a cost / benefit study that say it would profitable, if these people are willing to donate money, they will probably would pay for the channel.
