Google’s plan to fix the YouTube comment system was a tacit admission that it has the worst comments in the world
It was about time.
Did you ever scroll down and read the comments of any YouTube video, any at all? They are the most inane, idiotic, imbecile and sometimes outright insulting comments ever. No site, blog, forum, magazine or review site even comes close. Are all YouTube all viewers illiterate thirteen-year-olds? It sure seems so. I am usually embarrassed for the comments, and I don’t even have anything to do with them. If I could turn off comments in YouTube altogether, so I don’t have to see them, even by accident, I would.
Whatever Google can do to clean up this problem is welcome by me.
