Youtube comments have always been awful. But starting today, they are a new kind of awful.
Gone are the anti-Justin Beiber trolls and the spam about MILFs making $8k a week from home; from now on, the Youtube comments shown will be those with the highest scores based on upvotes and downvotes.
Anyone who has visited the Reddit mainpage can tell you this leads to bandwagon-ing like you've never seen anywhere else. All the favorite topics of wussy middle school students and dimwitted college students naturally rise to the top, with such classics as: rants about Christianity, kittens doing nothing of interest, feel-good stories that are blatantly fake, and screaming at no one in particular to legalize marijuana.
But I don't want to be overly pessimistic, and considering the previous state of the comments section, it couldn't really get much worse. So what do you think guys? Is it better or worse than before?
