#12 - Hunting For YouTube's Saddest Comments

Friday, January 24, 2014 - 02:24 PM


YouTube's infamous for having one of the worst comment sections on the internet. There's no reason to ever read them. Unless you’re writer & filmmaker Mark Slutsky. Mark spends hours scouring the comments section on YouTube, and occasionally, scattered in the dross, he finds small poignant stories for his site Sad Youtube.

I think not, and I don't in any way agree with that characterization of YouTube comments in general, but you guys feel free to define it the way you want so you can help shift the zeitgeist toward the ever increasing and overwhelming political correctness that's sucking the life out of our culture.
