    We all are well aware of the riots going on around because of the new comment system. You probably have seen one or more of the graphic image spam going through out YouTube. Well it may all be just in vain, as the Google staff have confirmed that they are sticking to their decision and will not revert back to the old system and will be introducing new methods to automatically identify any spam comment. We all know that the new change allows us to post links and all but the spam has gotten way out of hand. Google better get their shit together and revert back to the old system or they are going to lose a big deal. Many popular uploaders have disabled the Google+ integrated comment system as a direct result of not being able to handle the overwhelming spam. And then some just because they don't like G+. One such channel is PewDiePie (aka Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg) who as of November 28th is the second most subscribed channel on YouTube with nearly 17m subscribers. And YouTube's first video uploader (Jawed) also expresses his criticism of the new system. These were his very words after a period of 8 years - "why the fuck do i need a google+ account to comment on a video?". These are just among the wave of users that are unsatisfied with the new system. Google seems pretty much broken into their decision but is it only a matter of time before they revert back or is this going to be the new era?

    The point is so you can post and I can do this

    SkyrocketSEO has now been successfully added to your ignore list. You will now be returned to where you were.

    Sayonara. I'll post whatever I want wherever I want. Go back to the lounge and try to get thanks by doing what you do the best.

    @Leanlow, I agree. In an effort to reduce the graphic spam, they are tightening up which is making it harder for us legit (well I guess you could say that) marketers.
