Yes, Phinn, the reply trace doesn`t work anymore. Not even in Chrome. It`s not the first time they`ve broken it.
Now, we know how/why they broke it last year.

The thing about this is, they broke 50% of what made the site usable and fun and it doesn`t currently retain whatever latest selections a person made.
I`ve tried using it since but, right now, it forces the use of G+ which is not the non-evil thing to do.

anyone else have the problem on youtube when you click the "in reply to" on a comment? all it does is reload the video in a new tab, doesn`t even show the other comment

I agree completely.

Also, why the hell can`t I hide annotations anymore?

Thinking about it, Youtube has been going downhill. Its harder to use, harder to navigate and now its throwing all this Google+ stuff at me. Im not sure If I can be arsed. Ive stopped watching a lot of channels because I just cant be arsed to navigate by the new system. Commenting is just getting worse and worse as well. Why remove the `See Previous Comment` functioin? And the other videos from channel. Those were good. They worked.

"Comments you care about..."
How the HECK do we know which ones we "care about" before we`ve read them? If all you ever see is comments from your own circle of friends, isn`t that what FaceBook and Twitter and all those others IS FOR? Why make YET ANOTHER circle-jerk website?

@Mr_Ike: You are correct! We are the `product` :-)

And WHY does YouTube keep telling me that "We`ve set English as your language"? For OVER an month it`s been doing this! I click & click to try to get rid of it! NOPE!

The way they`ve got comments arranged now is HORRIFIC! If I had to design the WORST WY to do it? It would look a lot like that.

>>>Oh, how about a "Mild Swearing" warning for the video? @Fancy? @Mods? Just to be polite, eh?

I wonder what this site would look like if we had to show our real names?

We`d probably find out Crakr is really a 13 year old girl, 5cats is ACTUALLY named "Phive Kats", and Kitteh is really Angelina Jolie.

It`s google. You`re the product, not the customer!

Oh dear.
Looks like YouTube is fast becoming OldTube. Perhaps it is time for another independent non-corporate start-up.
NewTube perhaps?
I don`t do any of the facebook, arsebook, twitter, twatter, or whatever social sites; I do not want them foisted upon me, or have any connection with them.
Grrr.

Agree with the stoner dude. Hey, don`t you think it kinda reflects the way society is going?

Hmm, I haven`t seen most of these things this guy is complaining about. Perhaps it`s because I`ve had my own Youtube channel for awhile now, not sure.

I`m not doubting this is happening though, Youtube has been acting like a damn dick lately, with most things.
