They didn't get the channel. They just got the shorthand URL - still goes to his channel, he still has all his followers, etc. This is just redirection of the shorthand URL to Lush Cosmetic's channel.

Probably their algorithm, like most of Google's stuff, is based on usage - they saw that people frequently visited /lush/; then went to the channel for Lush Cosmetics afterwards.

It's the best solution, but in today's political climate and for the forseeable future, it's a total non-starter.

(Also, the FCC isn't really the agency that's able to give poor people cash directly).

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
