I noticed recently that a YouTube user is scraping Ask Ubuntu (and possibly other stackexchange sites) and posting videos with the questions and answers. A few examples:

My wireless is hard-blocked

Ask Ubuntu question - My wireless is hard-blocked

Scraped video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIhq2kJKp1M

How to avoid "Assuming drive cache: write through" message during restart?

Ask Ubuntu question - How to avoid "Assuming drive cache: write through" message during restart?

I don't know if content on this website is licenced under Creative Commons, but I think this action is worrying as he's also linking to a Patreon to get money out of people. Should this behaviour be stopped? Can it be stopped?

    I reported him to Patreon but he doesn't make any money anyway and I doubt anyone is going to support such half-arsed content as that. – Mark Kirby Sep 9 '19 at 13:12

    A video of a text based question? Sigh. The world has gone mad. – terdon Sep 9 '19 at 14:45

    Be aware, that content on this site is CC-BY-SA 4.0 - in the Video's description they cite the sources. There isn't really a conflict of license here (in this case) – Marco Ceppi Sep 10 '19 at 13:18
