    There are comments on Youtube Videos? Never scrolled that far down. Just watch the content. I can care a F@#$ less what trolls think.

    It's about time! Some of the stuff on youtube (most of it) is pretty far out and unweilding. Not done good at all.

    What's with all the comment hate! Comments are awesome! I always look forward to reading the comments after finishing a video!
    That's how I find new videos, by looking at comments and profiles.

    I admit the only comments I enjoy reading are on dubstep video's but they do that stuff on purpose as it's just part of the dubstep scene to be "filthy". Then very rarely people who are new to the scene would come in and comment something like "why do people say such dirty things?" and it just gets more hilarious.

    I'm not saying comments should be all hidden/disabled from the start. It's just like how downrated comments are hidden and you have to click on Show. It should be like that for the entire comments section so that if you are interested in seeing comments, you still can with just a click.

    Youtube just gets more annoying to me every time and if I can just remove all that crap from view, that would make it tolerable. Instead companies are taking videos down just as fast, so I guess it doesn't matter.

    Although this kind of contradicts my statement about comments, but its stuff like that that annoys me.

    YouTube has gradually gotten worst around the time of the U.S presidental election.

    -Political BS being forced on the YT community
    -Forced to watch watch commercials before videos
    -Horrible new layout design
    -Promoting unfunny/untalented dimwits (i.e sxephil)
    -CNN making internet trolls (i.e chriscrocket) famous.

    They need to shut down all their servers and start from scratch as it's getting way out of hand.

    -You're not being forced to watch the political BS! Subscribe to the channels you like and just watch whatever you want.
    -You can either block ads or press F5 to skip them, besides only some youtube partners have ads before videos, like CBS. How do you expect youtube to be able to afford all the videos they host for free? You should stop complaining, would you rather pay for youtube?
    -The layout is not that bad, I liked the old comments layout better but it is not as bad as the new Kotau layout :puke2:
    -I agree ppl like RWJ and sxephil don't deserve all the attention they get, no one is forcing you to watch them though.
    -Youtube has no control over CNN!

    I don't know why you guys hate youtube, I don't watch TV anymore cuz of youtube! Posting and reading comments is great :D There will always be idiots, just ignore them and move on.

    Youtube really has gone down a lot in the last couple of years. Mainly to do with the layout that is confusing as it is unintuitive. I don't really have a problem with the comments section, I just wish that they had some way of filtering comments that were obviously fishing for those stupid thumbs up things.. the classic "1000 people are cool, 1 person was retarded" crap.

    Furthermore they need to remove ads before videos, if necessary have more around the screen. But if there are ads before I will simply move on to another website/video without ads. Youtube has plenty of revenue to support the servers without ads, people use youtube because of the vast majority of videos with no ads - so why start adding them to some?

    Instead of hiding children from things they will eventually experience in real life shouldn't parents be giving their children the tools to interpret things correctly aka MORAL GUIDANCE.

    At what point did common sense abandon the 'parenting' curriculum.

    Eg.

    Parent hides all sexual knowledge from a child in the hope that the child will remain 'pure' under the foolish belief that abstinence is some kind of inherent instinct within people.

    Child then knocks up his 15 year old girlfriend....Hmm I wonder if sex education might have helped...nah, blocking the porn channel was clearly a much safer solution :S

    They should just lower the porn age to like 13 because people below 18 just watch porn anyways.

    Pressing F5 doesn't skip ad's anymore, it just starts the ad over again.
