I thought they made that thing to get rid of Spam? It's just awful, and DO NOT CLICK ANY LINKS PEOPLE PUT ON IT! It nearly killed my headphones with one of the links.

Nothing like seeing penis spam in comments. I'm glad I just went ahead and used that comment blocker add-on for firefox.

The comment section is better now, but the users are killing it, now youtube lets you use links, and the users are abusing it...

Indeed, in theory it's not bad & the layout doesn't bother me but the community is just too childish for it. I don't mind the Google+ integration but yea the users just kills it. I don't mind the old or the new layout personally.

Youtube comments were terrible before the change, and they will always be terrible. I don't understand why anyone would not be using an extension that gets rid of them by now. Here's a good one for Chrome:

Really? That's Youtube's biggest problem right now, ever since the previous update half of my screen is filled with a whole lot of nothingness. :/

It's not my favorite, but it's not deal breaking to me.

The only thing worth looking into the youtube comments before this was to see the two most upvoted comments (at least recently, I'm not sure what the cut off is for them removing older comments that have more likes/thumb ups), but now I don't think that is even there any more, unless I am mistaken.

I like the layout better than I do the old one, but the comments themselves are exactly the same so it's just easier to read the stupid conversations.

The forced Google+ stuff is pathetic, but not really that big of a deal to sign up for one more site just to comment on it. It's more effort than I should have to put, but not so much that people should whine about it like they do.

Some pro-tips for surviving the new YouTube comment section:

1. Never click a link with 'Anne' or 'Anna' in it.
2. NEVER click a link with 'Anne' or 'Anna' in it.
