I seen some spammy stuff on the videos my brother watches but all the coments on stuff I was has normal to more mature comments. And once you're connected to Google+, you don't have to deal with it unless you want to. And all the new stuff youtube creators have control of is great. Plus I actually can tell right away when someone replies to my comment.

YouTube in itself is ****ed, before the change in late-201, it was great, no problems at all... Since Google came along and started their ******** and now their Google+ ********, I cannot stand YouTube anymore...

I still question why I still use YouTube. I really do. They just want to use YouTube, a proven to be successful business model to kick out Facebook. Sorry, it ain't happening. Nobody really wants Google+ since they don't see what it can do what Facebook cannot. Either leave YouTube alone or just freaking merge the two already.

Well, I realised I make less Comments, since this change, and so others do on my Channels.

Well more and more I keep seeing spam comment , not sure what videos you're watching. Particularly the good old guy named Bob.

Spoiler:


Proof http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlcIKh6sBtc
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-gyZ35074k http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCdwKhTtNNw http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpOSxM0rNPM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGyH195RZM4&feature=c4-overview&list=UUGCPAOQDZa_TTTXDr5byjww http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sutgWjz10sM

People used to spam this guy all the time several years back. I thought he died off for sure, but nope. It's so funny how people think that by spamming YouTube videos with "BOB" and other copy/paste spam comments will make Google change the comment layout back. They'll just find their way around it.

OMG How many times i have seen this stupid spam. It is so annoying that people like Totalbiscuit and others just turned their comments off. Seeing as more people are doing this, YT comments will die soon or late cause of them.

Youtubers now have full control of what can be commented. If they don't want F**k, then ban it. If they don't want check out my channel, ban it. If they don't want bob, ban the stuff that makes up those comments. They have the control to make the comment enviroment that they want, but they wont.

Well, I've set a small word list to test it, but nobody used any of these words yet.
And you won't Ban them, you have to manually approve Comments, if one of the words match.

I really question why people think spamming Bob would make Google bring back the old system, but that's not me so I don't care. I do report them when I see them, although I don't think that would make such a big difference in the long run.

As for my personal opinion, until they 1) ask for my credit card or Social Security numbers, and/or 2) more than 50% ads/BS, I don't give a crap what they do with Youtube, Facebook, whatever goes on these days. They could put flying dildos on the homepage and I wouldn't care one bit, because they're giving me this great way to watch videos for free. I think the least I could do is give them the 4¢ I already give them by putting up with the ads (although they are annoying lol), and let them experiment with whatever.

However, I do think that pushing a failed/failing service on a successful service is probably not the publicity you want to give either product (you know, via your main company).

Google should just accept that Facebook with all its faults is better than Google+ and give up. It happened with the Betamax, it happened with the HD-DVD, it happened with the Dreamcast. Google only has to lose by forcefeeding Google+ into people, although there are the sheep who will still go to YouTube despite the link to Google+ simply because the competitors like Dailymotion and Vimeo aren't very popular.

And this isn't happening only with Google+. A friend of mine wanted to show the advantages of Hangouts over other instant messaging services such as Skype, but it seems Google fails spectacularly at advertising all of their products that aren't their search engine or Android, since people will still rather go to Skype, because, well, Skype is already established in the market. People won't change their service just because the new one is made by Google.

When I saw YT earlier today: what the obtuse utter fudge.

I don't even want to associate my G+ with Youtube, but apparently that's inevitable now.
Same with me, I think the way they put G+ in their was pretty sneaky. Google's got its grimy little hands all over its other sites with G+ and I don't like it.
