It's similar to several stretches of road in your state.

Uh, that's still an opinion, and I don't really care that it belongs to Teddy Roosevelt, because that makes it no more valid.

You keep missing that I have never said Minnesota is scenic. You keep coming with this attitude that I'm saying "Illinois bad, Minnesota good" because it's how you approach your own arguments. Minnesota is boring. It has two or three drives I actually enjoy, and the rest is boring. Most people would think MN 61 is boring compared to other stuff in the country.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.  Illinois' most beautiful drive? Maybe.  But I can be on 30 more beautiful drives within an hour of my house.

To be fair, there's a lot more scenic drives today than there were in 1910 when Teddy Roosevelt made that comment.

Especially considering how much Teddy Roosevelt enjoyed hanging out in what is now National Park lands out west.  I would assume those park road networks would be high on his list for scenery.

Psst.  This is Crash_It.  Some form of this complaint has been made over and over again and he doesn't care. 

Better to ignore his videos altogether.

--- End quote ---

Or give it a quick thumbs down, many do.

From what I've heard about the latest episode the video is taken basically at sundown and has a heavy amount of glare.  The huge ball of ionized gas coupled with massive windshield glare can be seen in the thumbnail for the video beforehand.  Clearly we are not dealing with the elite of driving tour videos.

Ah, so Crash_It is the reason YouTube is hiding dislikes!

Emphasis mine.

--- End quote ---

To cut down on dislike attacks. My videos are no different from others in this field.

--- End quote ---

Could it not be you just dug yourself an insurmountable hole in terms of having no credibility in the road world?  You brought all this negative attention onto yourself by your actions and attitude towards anyone who questions the things you do.

--- End quote ---

We can all agree to disagree. Just because I explain and defend my actions doesn't make it a crime. I get falsely accused of things all the time. I mistook this forum as one where all dashcam videos can be shared and that was my mistake.

--- End quote ---

You didn't mistake it. AFAIK you are free to share any videos you like. But if you are showing videos criticizing the actions of others, it's reasonable to expect criticism of your own statements and actions.

Unless the moderators have contacted you privately and asked/told you not to share your "bad driving" videos; which, if so, is information to which the rest of us aren't privy.

Also, having a clear illogical disdain for out of state drivers (particularly Wisconsin) doesn’t exactly lend itself well towards having people take the OP seriously.  Example; your latest video title clearly shows a dislike for Michigan drivers.
