Hey Phil hope all is well. You being a target of social media/internet hate harassment what do you think more should be done by these social media platforms like YouTube and Twitter to prevent harassment and hate speech? I feel like the internet has grown exponentially with most users having a cell phone or other media devices but regulations are almost non existent. Also when in your view do you believe you cross the line with freedom of speech? Sorry not trying to be political, this is not a political question just trying to understand you as a daily user of one of the biggest platforms what should be done to not allow hate or harassment, specially in a platform that kids like my sons under age might come across and think it’s funny. Thanks Phill and wish you the best, been a viewer since 2014 and absolutely love your perseverance and dedication towards your goal.

Just a few stupid questions related to Windows. What do you consider to be your favorite Windows version? What is your least favorite version of Windows? What do you think of Internet Explorer 4.0 (this version, specifically)? Which is the first version of Windows you consider "modern"? And lastly, do you consider the Mega Man Battle Network series to be versions of Windows?

It's been along time since I been on your content so I hope all is well and nice to see you're going Strong. My Question is what do think about Sony making video games movies? Sony is banking on it being the next MCU & they wanna be pioneer's in that market. While Uncharted did well, A big part of that was talent like Tom Holland and the movie coming out after Spider-Man No way Home. But given Sony Previous Video Games movies with the Capcom properties I remain skeptical until shown otherwise. Also I heard there's a Day's Gone movie being made. Hope it does well but I know it'll be a hit to gamer's if there's Day's Gone 2 with no Source Material.

Hello Phil. First time using the forums and asking a question here on Ask The King. Kinda gonna write a long one here, but I felt it important to get this across, as I have a point I wanna make, to you and to everyone who may listen.

I wanted to first express to you that over the last couple of weeks I’ve really found myself enjoying your content more and more, and I think you’ve done a good job not only entertaining us viewers, but mixing things up. I appreciate how you’ve not been afraid to react to more controversial videos or subjects about yourself, such as the DownTheRabbitHole video and other reactions, and how you have chosen to confront these things head on and openly talk about some issues. I especially thought your reactions and honestly in regards to the whole John Rambo situation was especially eye-opening. Not to say you were some awful person beforehand, make no mistake, but I do believe that you have changed for the better as a person, and I’m glad to see you have grown wiser over the years.

As I expressed to you in email a few days ago, at the time I’m writing this post, I fell down into the DSP hate bandwagon because of the TIHYDP series. Sure, watching you fail at games like Metal Gear Solid 3 or Dark Souls may be funny, but it never should have gotten to the levels it was even just a few years ago into today. It’s only now that I’ve come to realize how the internet can lead impressionable young men and women down into dark territories, all for the idea of an easy laugh or cheap entertainment. A lot of people got caught up in the hate towards you that it became so vile and personal. We often forget that the people on the screen are human beings with feelings. I can never make up for falling down that pipeline, but I hope now that I’m older and wiser, as someone about to begin their work career as I end college, that I can educate people on the dangers of internet pipelines and help people avoid falling down these traps. You see it all the time in the entertainment space especially, but I won’t get into that since it could get political!

Not that I want you to get put on a soapbox or anything, but I genuinely would like to know your thoughts on internet pipelines and how people can turn so twisted. Can people truly change? Have you noticed more people coming around and supporting you lately who used to be haters? Do you ever worry about people who watch now being secret trolls? You’ve already been dealing with these false copyright strikes, which impacts you as a content creator. It’s crazy to think that at the drop of a hat, your livelihood could be threatened. As someone who suffered a panic attack in 2019 and has dealt with newfound issues of anxiety for the last 3 years, I can’t imagine the toll all of this has taken on your mental health. I have immense sympathy for the situation you’ve been in as of late. What impact has the last decade plus of content creation had on you, and what advice can you give to young people such as myself in regards to being up and coming content creators, and to those are dealing with issues of anxiety more and more everyday? Has harassment on the internet gotten worse, or have things turned around for the better? I know these are quite personal things to ask, but I do feel like your experiences can truly help educate others.

Thank you for taking the time to read through this essay of sorts. I greatly appreciate you giving me your time as someone who used to be a hater, allowing me to have a clean slate with you, and I’m thankful for the entertainment you’ve brought over the years. Stay strong, and I hope you can continue to do what you do for many more years to come. You certainly have someone who will now be a frequent viewer and supporter going forward.

Why haven't you renewed your DarksydePhil trademark registration?

When you pay for a trademark they have to confirm that you are the owner and that it's not being actively used. People have tried to buy his trademark in the past, and ultimately wasted their money once the agency sees that it exists.

So if "McDonalds" wasn't trademarked you still couldn't buy it.

Heyo Big Phil! I've been a long time fan of yours and your content since 2014/2015-ish, and I vividly remember you answering a question from me years ago about your own approach about reviewing games. Now, I wanna ask you something pertinent: Ever since you abandoned streaming again on Twitch since last year and you now streaming on Youtube since the transition, what is the feeling like? What I mean by that is how are things different from what they were back on Twitch, and if so, what are the positives and negatives of streaming and creating content on Youtube as opposed to the old methods over on Twitch? Thank you in advance and may the Heavens above bless you more, dude!
