Annoying flamers on Youtube

  1. I was having a delightful day, as it was quite sunny and warm today in my town. I finally got home from school, so I booted up my PC to check my mail. Thunderbird announced "So-and-So has replied to your comment."

    So I scroll down the page to read it. The comment was on a Windows Movie Maker XP hot fix to stop it from freezing when saving. I am delighted that it worked so I commented and said "Thank you, WMM was acting so erratically, I'm glad it's working now."

    This (insert vulgarity) person replied to me (keep in mind this is just some random person I don't know.) "Well, maybe WMM would have worked better if you didn't suck so much with computers." Trust me, there were a lot of needless swear words that had to be pulled from this sentence.

    Has anyone else had a delightful experience with "naive" flamers? :haha:

    Yes. Open forums get these things all the time, but they are edited or removed promptly (except in YouTube it seems)
    YouTube requires better Moderating

    If you see a post that should be Moderated, you can click this button [​IMG]
    In top right hand corner of any post.

    By the way don't click the button unless it's for a valid reason, otherwise you will be looked at !

    Regarding emails. Always scan with a good updated Antivirus

    I find it hilarious. Some of the comments people post on Youtube are so lame it is so funny. I wouldn't take it to heart if I were you,

    While there still are ***** flamers out there, my impression is that the overall numbers of flamers and flaming messages are way down from what they used to be 5-10 years ago. Of course, participation in forums has changed in that there are many more specialized forums out there. It could be that Youtube, being completely unspecialized, has drawn more of the ***** flamers.

    I have had people flame me, and I have only commented on two videos......kind of sad, actually.

    I don't really see the point in commenting on YouTube videos anyways, I rarely visit the site unless I really want to see gameplay videos. YouTube is filled with *****s and obnoxious people to begin with so if you get mad over a comment then you're just feeding the troll.

    I'll correct you TimeParadoX, the INTERNET is filled with *****s and obnoxious people, not just YouTube.

    And of course, if all sites had /ignore functions....

    Hello Obi-Wan Jerkobi,

    Don't worry about it, They just do it to make them popular and make you feel bad and one handy picture:

    I absolutely hate the users who post these things on YouTube :/ . I especially hate the ones who are against all Americans, and the Americans who hate anyone that isn't American. It's really annoying lol.

    A Friend of a Friend Says.................

    My therapist says her therapist, (a PHD in Psyc from Harvard), says; "9 out of 10 people are a*******s! I think it's more like 99 out of a 100, but since I'm not a PHD, I can't be certain, can I?............... (Cue demonic laughter)!

    It anything these people are most entertaining if you get them in a thread together.:haha:

    Update to evil flamer:

    The guy has been giving all of my videos 1's, (Magnificent AMV's if I say so myself), so I just disabled ratings for a couple of days, then re-enabled it. Instant "no-rating", problem solved! :rolleyes:

    I don't hate "America" in general, I just hate the few ignorant people that ruin it for everyone else by what you say "Hate everyone and everything non-american". Although it is fun to spam the Team America song in CSS to annoy everyone on Euro servers.

    People spam the "Kyles Mom is a Big Fat B****" song in the TF2 servers.

    That only works when the people in the server are too young to understand what the words mean and their parents beat them for listening to bad words on the interbutts.

    Oh, trust me, I do hear lots of whiney 8-year-olds in my favorite servers, especially the modded ones.
