Yet another way to waste time at work.
My boss walked into my office and almost caught me on YouTube.

YouTube is a website that allows users to upload and share videos worldwide. Launched in Febuary 2005 by three former members of paypal, YouTube has seen immense success, and as of March 2006 roughly 20,000 videos are uploaded daily.

-YouTube, "Broadcast Yourself."
I made a video blog on YouTube.

I found Audioslave concert videos on YouTube.

Parents should be aware of what their children post on YouTube, as there are many perverts and perverted comments.

The most popular video-hosting site. Millions of users upload their videos on virtually any subject out there (although nudity is not allowed).

Each video can be rated and commented on, which is not a good idea at all. Most of the comments in almost ANY video consists of 12-year old kids with no spelling or grammar skills; 30+ year old pseudo-intellectuals who try to tell everyone else how they're right and the others are wrong; racists; or people who just like to pick fights for no reason. If for whatever reason you feel like losing a few brain cells and want to look at the comments, be prepared to see a lot of "noob", "faggot", "gay", "Republican/Democrat", or "nigger" being used.

Aside from the comments, Youtube used to be a decent place, until the following started happening:

1. WMG started deleting music videos and muting videos with ANY piece of audio by any of the music artists under their labels
2. Viacom sued Google, which Youtube is owned by, having them delete many videos of TV shows
3. The majority of the user base became 14-year old tween girls obsessed with Twilight and the Jonas Brothers
4. Fred became the most popular user. Seriously, that alone is reason to avoid this place like the black plague.

Now, there is almost nothing left worth watching on Youtube, except for maybe some Failblog videos, Youtube Poops, or music videos of bands NOT owned by WMG. And even these can be ruined just by looking at the comments. It can be the most non-provoking, non-violent, socially-acceptable video ever, and you'll still see someone flaming the holy hell out of someone, whether it be the author, or another commenter.
"Hmm... I want to go on Youtube. What's new?"

*sees lots of Twilight and Jonas Brothers videos*

"Whoa, not cool. Ok... I'll see the POPULAR videos!"

*sees whole lot of Fred and High School Musical videos*

"Uhh... ok... lemme just do a search for a band I like"

*sees a video, clicks it, finds out it was deleted by WMG*

"Aw fuck! ... well it's ok... I'll just search for some funny stuff now... maybe someone slipping off a diving board?"

*finds video, reads comments*

"Geez... can I find some peace ANYwhere?? Ah, I know!! I'll look at a video of a cute puppy! Surely no one will have anything bad to say there!"

*finds video, reads comments*

"WHAT??? He said he wants to kick the shit out of that dog??? How dare he?!? And then he called the author a faggot?!? That's it... I'm DONE with Youtube!! DONE!!!"

A website that is renovated every other day.
Josh: Hey man, have you ever been on YouTube?
Louis: Yeah, isn't that the website that changes itself every fucking day and forces you to sign up for Google+?

The world's largest video website, infested by 13 year old girls who are obsessed with Edward Cullen and the Jonas Brothers, random racists and people who have nothing better to do other than post offensive comments to piss people off, and religious fanatics who are convinced that they can convert the aforementioned adolescent fangirls and morons. A minority among the Youtube community is the normal honest people who just want to listen to music and see some funny videos without seeing a bunch of morons arguing about Twilight and Christianity.
I went on Youtube to listen to music. In the middle of the song, I checked out the comments and found a bunch of illiterate morons arguing about nothing in particular.

A website that encourages its users to "Broadcast Yourself," and allows people to upload videos of nearly anything. Though it was announced in October 2006 that the site was going to be taken over by Google, the REAL takeover is already occuring, under the radar, by the following groups:
1.) Overcaffeinated fifteen-year-olds with camcorders, Windows Movie Maker, and way, way too much free time.
2.) Anime fanatics who believe that virtually every song sounds better when remixed with completely random clips from their favorite episode of Naruto.
Omigod! So, like, Ashley and I uploaded the sweetest video of ourselves dancing to the latest Fergie song onto Youtube!!

A site that was once good, full of artists who liked to have a place to express their work and get useful and constructive criticism. This was when it first started.

Now it is home to:

-Stupid wannabe hackers trying to post tutorials.

-5 year old children who claim they are 26.

-People who spam the comments section with webcam links.

-People who constantly ask, "what song is that?".

-Annoying people who keep asking how to do something despite it clearly being explained.

-People who give every video they encounter the lowest rating possible (1 star).

-People who continuously post "please subscribe to my channel" on every video description.

-People who use the new video annotation function to post "subscribe!" all over the place.

-Angry people ranting about why they hate parking spaces and everything in between.

-People who try to make funny or amusing videos involving a "mash-up" of video clips.

-People who do product reviews who have absolutely no idea what they are talking about.

-Idiots trying to do stunts that fail horribly.

-People who use "U" and "UR" in tutorial videos.

-People who use Windows Movie Maker and don't even change the colors.

-People who post videos with excessively loud music that takes your focus off the video.

-A code that everyone uses on their site to embed videos because nobody has ever heard the concept of embedding their own videos.

-People who use the crappiest encoding formats that sound like crap.

-Failed comedians who try to copy off of Saturday Night Live and Mad TV.

-People who like to quote movies or re-make them.

-Some of the most foul mouthed little children who like to abuse the word "fuck" in every comment and/or video title.

In other words, YouTube used to be fairly decent, but then little idiots took over and now the rest of us are thrown into this swirl of atrocity they call videos.
Person 1: Hey man lets make a YouTube video we think is going to be funny, and then we will get angry when someone tries to comment against it!

Person 2: Yea! Then we can put loads of video annotations all over our video that tell people to subscribe!
