So you like leaving stupid, off topic, bashful, hurtful, idiotic, crazy comments on YouTube. Well, shame on you! "Only drunk people, underage fags, bored preteens, and stupid frats with no life linger around here to look for videos to laugh at." ~Spoken by a perfectly sane human (soma150 of YouTube).

Pfft... The only reason you disabled comments is you want to get more visitors to your site so you can get more money from ads. Don't lie.

I love all your videos Rodney, many of them have helped me decide purchases, recommendations to friends, and just general information on new technology my wallet cannot afford to experience. I've dealt with many a troll in my day, whether it be on youtube, on a game, or on a forum. They're everywhere. But as long as you just ignore them and do what you do regardless of what they say, you'll have my respect. Keep on keepin on man.

It certainly is very unfortunate that YouTube is a troll magnet.

Folks, don't read to much into this video, it was a rant. And I believe I'm entitled to a rant from time to time ;)

Rodney I'm going to ignore this video(being about you if you know what I mean) because your only human and we all get angry and annoyed at times(even Monks and Priests can get angry, yep it's true =P).

But you REALLY shouldn't care about those dumb comments, you think your videos are the only ones that get those ridiculous comments? I DARE you to have a look at IGN's YouTube videos hahaha =/

And your an adult, a cool one =)

Keep making your videos and of course letting people comment on your YouTube ones aswell, just IGNORE or block the ones who do that, seriously, take care buddy.

Last I heard Google was pumping millions of dollars into a YouTube overhaul. Maybe they can figure out away that makes their website click for them just by thinking about posting a ridiculously stupid comment? I'm going to patented this idea and call it..

Tivon,

It's because a YouTube troll's clicker-finger is very weak. It takes them an enormous amount of energy to click on a link that takes them away from YouTube ;)

U didn't mention people who think they know stuff better then everyone, for instance if you make a video telling people what kind of CPU cooler thats good or something like that, and then they'll do everything in their power to look pro and disprove you... thats annoying!

Couldn't agree more, i wish you could only allow subscribers to comment, it would cut down the spam loads

I was half expecting to log into 3dgameman today and spend hours banning trolls.

Those comments are left by people who are somehow a worse person and they just need to get others to feel bad - like them! And there are many people like that...so I would say not to allow comments on Youtube.

Have a nice day, Rodney.

I actually read a lot of youtube comments, and also reply to them. I comment on youtube because it is so easy to keep track of my comments and the replies. I can leave a comment here but tomorrow I will no longer think about it. Maybe you should change your comment system to Disqus. Normally I don't bother registering to leave a comment on blogs and other websites, but if they use Disqus I'm most of the time already signed in + I can see all the replies to my comment on my Disqus dashboard. It also allows community rating so the trolls will get voted down and the useful ones get voted up. People comment on youtube videos because it is just so easy and familiar: scroll down and say what's on your mind.

I fully agree with you Rodney and now I understand why you decided to disallow comments on your videos. I do think though that youtube should give all of its users an option to ban certain words or sentences in its videos (such as first, second, third etc.)

I was under the impression that comments on Youtube were disabled so all of the comments could be left using the system on this website, as a way to stop duplicate content and also drive more traffic to the site, which is fair enough. I wish there was a way to embed Youtube comments onto the site, there may be an API for this?

Hey Rodney, I have a question for you. Why has your website been under construction for almost 2 years? You're practically begging people to go to your forum and leave a comment in this rant video but the thing is fucking broken!! HELLO?!?! Are you not cluing in yet?? I have been a long time member and and still do enjoy your videos. USED to enjoy your perfect forum. It was definitely my favorite one to go to. You said it had bugs and whatnot but whatever. Your forum finally does look good a year and a half after your site went down. You used to have a ton of contributing members but have all since left.

By the way, my post might not sound too intelligent and whatnot and you may not agree with it but i will tell you this. You stoop to the level of those people who leave those comments and it makes you look like a tool. Seriously, Who the fuck is going to go to your website now after seeing that video? Are you for real? Why do people's comments anger you that much? You are a grown man, let it go. You showcase yourself on the internet. Most computer enthusiasts are a younger generation. So you are catering to them. Lead by example dude and hire a full timer to work on your forum.

Its the internet. I can rant too. Get real!!!

Lol nice rant. Certainly those youtube comments are annoying, i think most of us prefer to read on-topic related comments rather than some random stuff left by some bored guy, anyways it was a funny vid.

youtube comments are kind of like real life. Not everyone is sane, or have useful or relevant things to say. Disabling them however is... I think, a sign of insecurity, only done by someone unable to take criticism (both good and bad).

Seco.. wait, no, those people are part of the group that I think shouldn't be allowed to use the internet..
Though it is a good thing you can't control who can and can't get on it.

Anyways I think this system is fine, only thing I see is maybe just not wanting to go through this site, or being lazy and wanting to stay within youtube..

Youtube comments is what makes people trying to be attentive but I know they're real losers when they make a typical comment ever posted on most to all popular videos and not trying hard to make better videos.

To add something else I have the feeling to start a campaign to mark all of the common comments you ever see every day on YT as spam, although making a thumbs down on that comment is a good idea. I know it isn't going to work but this is quite fun for me, heh.

Modern YT comment box is now just hell compared to the early days where people leaves necessary messages.

PS. I like the idea of you bringing this topic up Rod, lol
