Greg uses his fans as a Personal Army to either defend him, attack people he does not like, and to water out definitions/reviews/wiki articles.
Earlier in his YouTube career, it is speculated Greg would be subtle when directing his fans to attack or defend. For example, he would talk about how a specific person was hurting or attacking him, allegedly knowing fans would find that person to attack them and defend Greg. When this would be brought up to him, he would say something along the lines of "I don't control my fans."

Greg made an attempt to stop his fans from sending her rape threats with a Facebook status. (Source)
