I don’t really watch many videos on YouTube anymore, because i’m always put off my the comments left by other people. So many popular videos just become playing fields for racial insults and arguments!
I watched a video recently that had one member called ‘deathtomuslims’ arguing about Japanese/Chinese relations with another use (well…more slagging each other off). I wrote to YouTube about it because i think it is shocking that such a prolific site allows this type of thing to happen. Obviously controlling every comment is no easy task…but allowing a user to call him/herself ‘deathtomuslims’ is absolutely shocking!
Thankfully Flickr doesn’t get this type of problem!
