    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    "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?

    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.

    I agree completely.

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

    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

    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.

    They are using the Obama care tactic.
