    Justin Bieber. 9/11 was an inside job. Atheism.  Obama.

    Also, there, their, they’re, your, you’re. Immigrants.

  4. Guess it depends on what you watch. For me, YT is mainly a source of classical music vids (if you like that stuff, YT can be amazing). So I guess my derp-factor is less than XJ’s. It’s musicians having conversations about composers and performers, and the occasional doofus is voted down into invisibility. Even for home-grown performances, criticism is often constructive (“try a slower tempo in that passage after it modulates to minor to bring the harmonic out a little better”). I learned a fair bit from YT comments as I was preparing my own essay on Chopin.

       Chopins dum. Huurr.

      I agree, YT is a great source of a variety of entertainment

      Take this for example:

      Mostly present comments. It’s not all derp and herp.

         I was pleasantly surprised, I thought you were going to trick us with “sudden attack of diarrhea in the hot tub” or some such.  But I’m glad I could not have been more wrong!

        • BombBlastLightingWaltz says:

          It is so awesomeness. The point is though, not the music but the level of maturity in the comment section which only compliments the endeavour. 

    • err… “Volodos plays this concerto in the true spirit of Rachmaninov, Kemp could not come close, you are obsessed with Kemp to cloud your judgement ( I doubt you have much) onn all other. You openly show bias to all Russian pianists which just shows how stupid and biggoted you are.”

    That’s cute, but it should be made to exclude obviously brilliant comments like the ones I make.  I mean, I’m not like all those other losers.  My thoughts are unique and insightful, and everyone should have the benefit of reading them.

    Where’s the version of this for bb comments? *ducks*

  7. Mark Ballinger says:

    This is an immediate install on my teacher display computer. Now I can safely plug in youtube videos and not hear about the “hilarious” comments they spot before I hit fullscreen.

  8. Danger Saurus says:

    I use Comment Snob, which nukes them completely so I don’t see *anything* below the description. Makes it a lot safer to watch with the kids, as sometimes even commenter names are racist/misogynistic/misanthropic/antagonistic in general.

    My fave is the one that changes you tube comments to Richard Feynman quotes

     It’s a plug-in of beauty! Thanks, Xeni!

  11. Labbit says:

    Now we need one that changes all of Tara Carreon’s forum posts into same.

  12. How stupid are things going to get? It’s nowhere near amusing!

    my only problem with this is that not ALL youtube comments are herpa-derpable. get me an extension that can learn the difference, and THEN you’ve got me.

    • Spieguh says:

      I’m using one Youtube Comment Snob that I can set to filter out certain criteria: excessive punctuation, all uppercase, vulgarity, etc. makes YouTube so much quieter.

    • Cyran0 says:

      Being all serious-like for a minute here: there’s probably a way to count syllables, and then simply filter by threshold.
      It would take only one marginally (or more, per preference) sophisticated word per comment to break out of the crap filter.

  15. Cowicide says:

    Now ruffians can commence “operations hidden-tube” and communicate plots with each other without being detected by people with fragile sensibilities.

    Why do you waste your time on fuckin youtube anyway? And waste more time doing this ?

      herp herp herp derp herp herp herp herp herp herp derp derp derp derp derp derp derp herp derp

    Wow. Since installing the HerpDerp extension, YouTube comments are now 400% more intelligent. Thanks, Tanner Stokes.

    I’m very selective about where I allow comments. I even turn them off occasionally for BB. Nothing gets me so angry or is as much of a waste of my time as fuming at web commenters. I use Shut Up: It was originally a user style sheet, but it now works as a browser plug in. I highly recommend it.

    Not supported for IE, I noted very recently.
