They have approximately now lost over 5000 subscribers which equates to about $25000 per month or $300000 per year in lost revenue.

Maybe that extra $400 time investment wouldn't have been such a bad idea after all

This is the issue every first world manager makes time and time again. They make greedy little shyster decisions to save a penny here or save face there and then it ends up costing them hundreds of times what it would have cost to just be ethical and decent in the beginning. It's incredible really what letting the entire world be run by business degree graduates will create in terms of the corporate landscape.

Stepping over dollars to pick up pennies.

Honestly, that bit now seems kinda small compared to what’s happened with the sexual harassment allegations.

It’s gone from YouTube drama because the channel’s a mess, to an actual scandal which paints the entire company as toxic.

Whoa, I haven't heard about the sexual harassment. Got a link?

OK, wow.

The gamers nexus stuff was merely incompetence, this is something else entirely.

It's all related. When you run a company at such a ridiculous pace, everything that gets in the way has to be ignored, downplayed, or mitigated. Instead of taking the time to train, or help the employee do her job, they made it her fault. On top of it all not taking complaints and accusations seriously may be for lack of time. Don't get me wrong, they fucked up. But these aren't isolated incidents.

True. Though in that case, too, it seems like Linus had more than enough warning to have fixed it proactively if he wanted to
