    This looks like comments in general...not just comment rating.

    If they bring improvements to the comment system I expect some variables to be changed. If they radically change their anti-spam algo with new updates things will might not work as they used to.

    I honestly can't think of any more improvements they can make to the current comment anti-spam system, they basically threw in everything they could to fight comment spam. If they expect to have zero spam on weight loss videos, well, they better disable comments all together.

    Actually their anti-spam filter on commenting beat the shit out of me the last night, when I didn't managed to place a top rated comment regardless of how well I managed to make all things unique, and keeping them separated altogether.

    And I'm not one of those who blast the same things on open proxies, with the same browser/user-agent and all alike.

    Heck, I even changed screen resolution to every virtual machine, and in case of pva accounts, did 1 unique number per account.

    So comment rating doesn't work for you right now? Because it has also stopped working for me, even when using web browser-based bots like Zenno / UBot.

    It's really hard to do now, and will be harder and harder within the time and updates

    Yeah :(. I used to make $300-$600/day with comments+voting. These days, the detection is a lot more strict. Even normal comments by normal users can get marked as spam. That's why they introduced the ghost banning thing, where your comments appear fine to you, but for everyone else they appear as spam...so normal users wouldn't complain that their comments were being marked as spam, or they weren't reaching the top comment section even when they had the most thumbs up.

    They are not fighting with the comment spam, but with regular people that write nasty comments

    YT fighting with those gets us in trouble too, since they change the backend comment filter. Anyways, around 16 hours ago I managed to bring 1 out of 6 comments in top section. They are still hard to move up.
