The stupidity that is Revver – Cartoon labelled as racist!
Today I chose to submit Mine! to Revver. I’ve had one film there for about a year but frankly didn’t feel it was worthwhile uploading any others. I don’t think much of their revenue model nor the number of hits they were generating. So what’s the point? But, on a whim, I thought what the hell and uploaded my 20-second action film anyway. Foolish me.
Of course after you’ve uploaded your film it goes to a ‘so-called’ human reviewer. This is different from when I last used Revver. There was no reviewer. It was like Youtube or Blip.tv. You uploaded and once the conversion was completed the vid was live. But, oh how things have changed.
I’d been warned that the review could take up to 24 hours, so I went and did other stuff before returning to discover this in my inbox:

Now, I’ve tried thinking of ways that Mine! could be hateful, and the only thing I could come up with is that it casts emo boys in a bad light. After all, the boy needs to be rescued by his girlfriend.
