In "YouTubers Who Don’t Suck", Malinda addresses the opinions of some people in early 2018 saying comments which demean the people who upload content currently on the site such as that they prefer the "old YouTube", how YouTubers are losing the original goals for their channel for money or popularity and how in mainstream media are criticizing the creators for being talentless and stupid. She does this in what she calls a "compliment track" or "reverse diss track" for all of the YouTubers that she, and many others, think shouldn’t be put in a group of people that they consider bad influences to the site, more namely Logan Paul and an incident that happened also in early 2018 where he uploaded a video that has now been taken down that showed a person that had committed suicide.
