    Notch's tweets:
    • We also learned who not to work with at Minecon. Shame.. :/
    • Other than that, Minecon was perfect! :D
    • I'm very sorry about the behavior of the people we won't work with any more. Celebrity or not, you don't f-bomb kids
    • [Five hours of fans speculating and spamming @notch]
    • Yes, Yogscast.
    Uh oh.. xD This is going to cause some big Dramas

    going to hurt notch much more than the yogscast.

    Basically, IGN had a stall with the yogs, they made an intro video cut from yogs videos with tons of swearing in it.
    Simon and Lewis did not swear during the panel and actually stopped themselves a couple of times.

    Notch did not screen the IGN video and then cry like a bitch when it has swearing in it and then trys to black mark Yogscast. Fucking pathetic by Notch tbh.

    Ah, Fizzee delivers as usual.

    I kind of agree that it will hurt Notch more than the Yogs.

    Yea PM me the full version Fizzee, interested to keep up with this as I met them all IRL and they are fantastic people and it sounds like they are being blamed for something which is not their fault.

    TB's post is legend, as most of TB's posts usually are.

    Done, and yeah, sounds like it was a shambles of a minecon and yogs are getting some blame put on them to escape all blame on mojang.

    I'd like a pm too. I find it sad that notch has this approach, because of the nature of language, but keeping minecraft "kids-safe" in parents eyes is probably in his interest, since it is such a good game for them.

    This is the panel which has caused the problems.

    Honesty.... I see no problem with it. If you watch this and take offense to it, then you obviously are a very sheltered person and I really feel sorry for you as your life will be a pathetic disappointment.

    With the huge following the Yogscast have, I fail to see how this will affect them.

    I for one will keep on watching the yogscast and listening to the yogpod.

    Notch hosts convention at a CASINO in LAS VEGAS, in an interview with the yogs talks about wanking and fucking simons mum, gives no guidelines to the yogs about the intro video so have a mish mash of their own footage on a screen, don't swear during the interview (Unlike jeb btw who repeatedly said shit) and then slanders yogcast in a public tweet.

    Notch is frequently unprofessional but when it makes the yogcast look bad (when they have been one of the largest causes of minecrafts success) is very irresponsible. He asked them to come knowing their style
    He gave an interview before the show with all sorts of vulgar comments
    He didn't vett the video before the show.
    He should shoulder the blame not offload onto people who where the highligh of minecon for many of the attendees.

    Know what your going to see is my argument.

    Don't take your children to a panel where the presenters were made famous by doing an online show in which they tell it like it is and swear a lot.

    In fairness though, if you watch it, the whole stage performance is 100% clean and they hold themselves back at many times from saying what they want to. This much fuss over a couple of videos where "fuck" was said twice seems a bit of a joke.

    All I have taken from Minecon, is that it seems a lot of over sensitive people went.

    I am looking forward to Lewis's v-log when they get back from the states.

    Well even though they are famous, im sure at least 50% of the attenders didnt know who they were. I for one didnt know about them until someone linked them on the homepage.

    My argument is: not everyone has the same internet knowledge that we have :p

    I didnt see the video and in all fairness i dont care much about who's right or who's wrong, but i understand notch's position as game maker and lead persona and representative.
    He probably got a lot of angry mails/phonecalls from dumb american christian parents and after all the stress of these days he decided to just vent on twitter. 90% he didnt even see the panel himself before the first tweet.

    Well balls, its like soccer moms found out about youtube.
    @F U R I E
    Sometimes I want to have these kind of parents call me just to ask them:"umad?" and tell them to go fuck themselves. Immature but they are always so annoying with their first world problems of "media corrupting our children" and "i am so offended" shit.

    • Wow. Hate, insults and threats are flooding in from Yogscast fans. I'll stop biting my tongue now.
    • Yogscast repeatedly insulted people, talked behind their backs, refused to cooperate, and acted like total spoiled divas nonstop.
    • They called us "a bunch of nerds who don't know how to run a company", demanded that we pay them to come here (nobody else got paid).
    • And they claim they're the reason minecraft is big and that we should thank them more than anyone else in the community. They're total dicks
    • A kid wanted them to sign something I had signed, and they said they'd cross it out and put "fuck you" there instead.
    • Everyone else in the Minecraft community is all about respecting and caring. They're not. They're an isolated island of egos.
    • All this said, I'm very tired at the moment, and this will probably pass. I do like the work they do, very much.
    Auch.. I do understand where he's coming from now.
