Collin, I had the same problem when his first video came out and it is doing the same thing with this one. Dunno if it's because I use Linux.

I'm looking at that video and I'm thinking that somebody spent about $30,000 to create that one 38 minute video. So I kinda feel like it is a step up over youtube. Therefore forking over an email is a tiny price to pay.
As for different ways to do this stuff: I get hundreds/thousands of people telling me that about my stuff and my default answer is that the folks seeking change should create the superior video. We could use more good permaculture videos!

You may want to do some research into paper pushers in the area and what they have a track record of doing to people on their land.

You can append a "+Keyword" to your account name in your email and it will still be valid. For instance, if my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, I can submit my email as email@example.com. Then I can set up a "Lawton" folder and filter any emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org into that folder. That way if anyone ever sells your email address to someone else, and they start sending you spam, you can easily see who sold your address and then start filtering all emails from that source directly into your spam folder.
