    When you have a million views video and there are some rotten apples that are trying to get your video down by manipulating users to flag the video, what are you going to do?

    I got a million views video and I've noticed there are some users (of course with an aged youtube account and no video uploads, favorites and stuff in their channel) that starts a comment with something like: "don't click the link in the description people! This is a virus and will destroy your computer!!! Flag this video PLS!!" And by voting up the comment through several accounts the comment will appear at the top at the "highest voted comments". So this is shit for me since people won't click the link anymore AND people will follow the rotten apple and flag the video too.

    What to do against this? Anybody experienced the same thing?

    It's part of the game!

    Start making your own comments to insure you keep the bad ones down out of the spotlight. or keep making new vid accounts.

    if its just the comments just delete them and problem solved and about flagging i don't think YT takes videos off for no reason only because it has many flags otherwise so many would abuse this method.

    Use many YT accounts and flag this user as spam. Then block this user and delete his comments.

    Delete the comment. You can still do that with the new YT updates right? If you can, than I don't see it being that big of a deal

    This is why i have the "Allow all comments with approval only" option ticked on all my videos to prevent this kind of shet and i advice you do the same.
