I'm actually kind of sick of all these Kony things getting spammed.

Yes I agree that he needs to be stopped, but I wouldn't just blindley follow this movement.

Invisible Children Inc., who seeded this video, are really shady. The short of it: They don’t allow their financials to be audited, they’re rated poorly by some major charity watchdog groups, and only 31% of their money actually goes to helping people according to one financial statement they did release. And Kony himself hasn’t been seen or active in any guerrilla organizations since 2006.  Heck Kony hasn't even been in Uganda for years.

Not to mention the money from this group is sent to help militarized groups in Uganda who are quite violent themselves (it is a dictatorship style of country after all).  There is more than just this Kony guy running rampant and causing mayhem around that place.

Point being, don’t just fall for for a well-produced video out of pure guilt.

Its spread not spared (I'm guessing autocorrect.)  Please don't make an irrrelevan thread like this on a game forum. Good cause, but spam youtube comments and facebook.  Flagged for removal

Thanks for trying to spread the word.

However, this is not the space to do so since this is dedicated to Uncharted 3 Multiplayer game-play.

I have moved this post to the Off-Topic discussion area, which is a better place to discuss non-game related topics.

Thanks,

Thank you CD for not blindly following them and actually spending a moment looking at their credentials. More people ought to do that, and not just jump the gun because it's the "right thing" to do.

And why can I still reply on this thread if it was moved?

Thank you for this, I read Kony 2012 twice before but didn't bother, this time I went on YT just to check out the fuss and I am amazed.

Thanks again for posting it up, despite this not being the most appropriate place!
