Not has such an uprising of racism, hatred, stupidity, misspellings, and other such reprehensible behaviors been seen since the founding of 4chan
in 2003. Allegedly a mini-forum, so to say, to give video watchers a place to criticize, discuss, and comment. What can effectively be called the "comment section" on YouTube is truly devoid of anything redeemable in nature, where commentators seemingly try their damnedest to do anything but comment, criticize, or discuss. Reading YouTube comments on a video relating to politics, religion, stereotypes, and the like, will often compel those curious enough to let their eyes dangle at the mosh pit of insanity to wonder what has driven most of these people to achieve such great failure.
The comment section on YouTube is truly despicable, mainly due to a lack of moderation by the staff, video owners, and etcetera. True, the occasional intelligent person will seemingly slip through the waves of unintelligible jargon that YouTube renders endlessly, but they are often rare, like finding a lonely message in a bottle, floating among the waves in a sea of urine.
YouTube comments are vile in nature because, naturally, if you give man a mask of anonymity, he will show more of himself than he would anywhere else.
