Damian Demento closed his YouTube account about two weeks ago because his page was consistently being spammed by bots leaving pornographics advertisements and/or messages on his user page. However, he has since opened up a new account at www.youtube.com/profile?user=aDementedOne. He later did a video rant on the spam infiltrating his old page, thinking they were coming from actual people, but they’re actually coming from spambots. He closed the comments function on his new account and is posting videos again. He has posted about 10 videos on his new account, which you can check out at this link. Among the subjects he’s ranting on in his new videos are people preserving his content from his old account, “perverts” spamming his old account, why Steroids are good for you, Bin Laden, and of course, Vince McMahon. His latest video, which was posted earlier today, is aimed at Vince McMahon. It’s called, “VINCE, WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO PULL?” He’s still upset over WWE posting his picture up on their official website. He’s also upset that WWE is going to be airing the first episode of Raw in January 1993 on WWE 24/7, which featured him in the main event with the Undertaker. He then rants on YouTube users defending him and people vandalizing his page on Wikipedia. Demento closes his video by vowing to McMahon that “this is going to be the year of revenge.”

American Gladiators will air again tonight in its regular timeslot at 8PM.
