    Invariably they want to sell me stuff, which makes me immediately dislike them.

    So, no.

    I guess if it helps people, then it doesn't matter to me. I understand it can be a dangerous situation for people who are trusting, but life is dangerous that way. But, what I am is annoyed with seeing a lot of that spilling over here on to the forums. I'm here to chat and exchange ideas, and there are so many people trying to launch their little self-help empires, and occasionally some minions trail along. It's kind of like having a conversation with a billboard.

    Yes, some videos help, but they're designed for profit motives (obviously), so it's up to the viewer to take control of their own lives and implement what they learn at their own discretion. In my experience, they're very surface level. If you're more knowledgeable about the topics they talk about, then the videos come off as very basic. But, there's always something to learn.

    The more obscure the topic, the more likely the videos will be helpful. Obscure topics ensure the creator isn't trying to make a profit off a trend, and therefore they're more likely to be sincere.

    When there's a problematic, obscure topic, ANY advice on it becomes useful because there's often very, very little advice regarding the problem since not many people are aware it exists.

    Things like body image, relationship problems, social skills etc. are all areas people commonly have issues in. Therefore, it is more likely that profiteers will try to utilize these problems in order to make a profit off of them. Other topics like having a rare, chronic disease profiteers will less likely know about and therefore won't think to create a dumb self-help book for money.
