Default YouTube Comments

Yesterday, 17:26
Good LORD, man, YT comments are simply horrible. I never noticed it all that much as I rarely read more than one section of comments on a video, but now that I make videos myself (and a few recent videos of mine have reached 10k+ views), I read every comment, and MAN, just atrocious stuff, honestly.

I don't really take them to heart or whatever, it's just insane to read them. I know there are some good people out there who leave thoughtful comments, but let me tell you, those people are few and far between!

It's mostly a lot of "this sucks"…"lol your mom"…"go %&*)# a %#)"…"this game looks like garbage" and so many more great treats that I read in my inbox each day.

So, moral of the story? Maybe we should all try to leave thoughtful comments on YT videos. Maybe you will inspire someone else to do the same!

Welcome to my world as we even get some of those comments on this website. I watch few different Lets Play channels, and some have disabled comments permanently.

Rule #1, never read YouTube or news website comments. It's best for everyone that way.

I may disable comments for the Raven's Cry videos I made. They are the worst offenders. I hate doing that, though, for the one-in-a-million chance someone actually wants to leave a good or interesting comment.

You have to remember that a lot of those comments are probably from teenagers, kids, etc. I generally agree with Menigal about not even reading them though.

I guess it would be hard not to read comments about your own video though.

Well, my experience with comments on my own videos has been good so far, BUT, I'm talking about my little Let's Play videos which don't get many views. Usually people post thoughtful, nice comments on those, although comments are generally rare since they don't get many views.

The problem happened once a few of my videos started getting a lot of views. All of the sudden, the comments are rampant and most of them are negative. I still read them but it's mostly just to get a kick out of how crazy people act on the internet!

I noticed your comments skyrocketed after we posted your Raven's Cry Preview last week, and after a few threads on Steam shared links to your videos.

I think this quote is perfect.

Yes. My faith in humanity is on an all time low. I hope they are just kids.

Is there a captcha to block teenagers (= -25 years) ?

What do you think of A
1. Nah. Sux0rs. Lulz
2. Dlc infested piece of crap
3. Sane answer

But we might block joxer too then

PS. I suck at this kind of language

Yeah, I also joined my YouTube account to Steam, and those videos of mine were posted on the Raven's Cry community videos page, so lots of people saw them. Needless to say I got many colorful responses after that.
