Do any of you ever wonder how certain companies allow no filter whatsoever seemingly on the comments posted on their videos? Here's just one example from ESPN:

 

_https://www.youtube....h?v=1TF69tL-Sy0

 

Go to it & just watch some of the video and what's being discussed and all you see in the comments pretty much have nothing to do with it at all except for one or so. It's not just about the comments being irrelevant to the topic though, it's about how vulgar they are.

 

Like you don't think people who work at ESPN see this sometime or the person in the video themself Hannah Storm? Do they find this flattering? Why would they allow it up?

Too many videos to filter stuff like that out.

Sometimes, the comments are more entertaining than the video (sadly).

Regarding females specifically, you see a lot of videos around YouTube of people or fans who post videos of weather babes, reporter babes, etc. in sexualized manners full with sexualized comments. Do you think any of these females actually like the attention at all or are most probably offended, disturbed, and creeped out?

 

I've always wondered that cause I'm sure a lot of them have seen them out of curiosity typing themselves up & what not.

 

I have this observation that at least a few of them I feel like I've noticed probably have not liked it all that much. For instance, I've seen some cases where a female on tv is newly discovered and suddenly people start posting videos of them on YouTube for like the first time ever and as time goes by, it's noticeable how much more conservative that particular female will start to dress. It's almost as if they discover how much they're being viewed, the comments they read, and say that's enough for me, I'm gonna' cover up a little more and then not surprisingly, the videos being posted/uploaded start to diminish dramatically and a lot of comments sound frustrated & disappointed.

 

Again, this isn't for all, just a few cases I've observed and I don't think it's exactly a coincidence.

Some of the most racism can be found in YouTube comments at any random moment, even probably videos so far away from the topic like innocent children/kids videos. There's a lot of anti-homosexual comments as well.

Some of those random comments that try to provoke people by saying racist thing and etc are made by federal agents.

^ That was pretty interesting. Thanks for sharing.

 

Not purely YouTube here, but still somewhat related.

Anyone else here not happy with the new YouTube comment system?

A lot of people seem to be unhappy with it including myself. Why are changes constantly being forced upon us? The Yahoo Sports page change was trash as well. Smh.

Google is forcing every You Tuber to Google +

I appreciate threaded comments and nesting, as I browse reddit and enjoy that formatting (so it is a personal preference). I think forcing people to link in to another social network is kind of garbage. If Google really wants to start connecting all of their products together, they may as well just create one steamlined portal with Youtube, Google+, Search, Gmail, etc. all in one accessible area, rather than various URLs with random updates across the services. Google may already be working toward something like that and are slowly pushing users into it, but I doubt it. Maybe something like this?

To me, Google has kind of ruined YouTube rather than improved it. I don't deny that they have kept up with the latest demands by implementing HTML5 and voting systems for comments, but it seems like they re-do the interface once per month. Maybe they should concentrate on one larger idea and spend years working on it in an isolated environment, rather than using the public server as a playground based on the feedback they are receiving. They are, in large, mixing proprietary code with opensource philosophy, which is sort of ironic.

YouTube co-founder wonders 'why the [expletive]' comments require a Google+ account

 

YouTube may have overhauled its much-maligned comments this week, but the service's co-founder is just not feeling it. Jawed Karim, one of YouTube's original creators, took to the comments for the first time in eight years and asked, "Why the [expletive] do I need a Google+ account to comment on a video?"

^ Saw that. There's been a petition made already with almost 50,000 signatures & counting...

 

Sadly though, I'll be shocked if they change anything. Changes from big companies tend to be forced upon people and even the negative feedback won't be enough. They usually tend to figure the outrage will die off with time & people will basically be forced to adjust like it or not.
