The YouTube comment system has got to be one of the worst forms of expressions that I’ve seen in a long time. YouTube has become a dumping ground for spammers and people who say just about anything and everything, regardless of whether it applies to the video’s topic.
YouTube tried to curb the irrelevant commenting and the spammers by implementing a voting system a little while ago so that users could try to "bury" certain comments. As it turns out the YouTube crowd barely uses the system, but that’s no surprise since some of the videos can reach upwards of 15,000 to 20,000 new comments each day.
This post, however, isn’t just about criticizing the lack of control over the comments placed on YouTube. Instead I’ve been trying to ease you into a hilarious video that demonstrates what some YouTube comments would be like in the real world. I don’t recommend watching the video at work because there are a lot of off-color "comments" being made. Honestly though, this ranks high up there as one of the funniest YouTube videos I’ve seen.
***WARNING: THERE IS A LOT OF VULGAR LANGUAGE IN THE VIDEO***
