    Am I the only one who thinks that the YouTube comment section harbours some of the most retarded things in the universe?
    I genuinely think that YouTube should either manage those comments a little bit better, or report the abusers to the authorities. Seriously some of the comments are just godawful. For now I will be disabling it on Google Chrome, but I hope YouTube ever decides to do something about it.

    I lost it when I was watching an intellectual video on thermal physics and the laws of thermodynamics and some 12 year old troll asked

    To be fair, I find quite a few TSR threads total cesspits too. One of the bigger downsides of the internet - every angry autistic teenager with a keyboard gets to have their say.

    It's usually full of prepubescent kids trying to be edgy. It is awful.

    What's wrong with being autistic?

    They didn't choose to have it?

    I very much doubt that YouTube has the slightest interest in spending resources to manage the comments but yes, it really is a cesspit. I'd even go as far as saying that its worse than the Daily Mail's comments section and that is an insult.

    Basically what people said above - just full of 12 year olds fishing for thumbs up on their comments. It's gotten worse recently too imo, due to the uprise of certain YouTubers. I rarely see any actual discussion which is really sad.

    That probably wasn't a 12 year old kid but it was something called a joke.

    Welcome to the internet, sadly where idiots are rife.

    It'll never change.

    It's hideous, even worse than what TSR is at its worst.

    There is something about below the linne sections that attracts a certain type of bitter, angry, hateful person. Maybe the Internet turns does this to people, maybe they really feel that way and are too cowardly to express their views offline. Websites are starting to move away from comments sections. The Guardian had cut back and The Telegraph has ditched them altogether, but I doubt YouTube's will go soon.

    Although they can be frustrating sometimes, I feel Youtube comment sections along with Facebook articles etc are the best way to have your views and opinions seen by the highest number of people.
    Probably why they're sometimes so messy :')
