Ohh...me not familiar with all lingo!

I have done myself...but only only music things.. often to agree with what people say about my favourite bands from bygone years...I like to see all points of view..be open minded..
I have seen responses to the racist comments(which started this thread) .and there are also refreshing comments made too..so it isnt all bad..~~~~

I also use it to watch things but I dont leave comments on there

Im with Jax on this. Youtube is full of bored kids and the mentally disturbed leaving unnessessary comments just to annoy other people.

I was refering to the people that make the racist comments. I thought that was what this thread was about. I wasnt refering to the people who watch youtube, if you had read the now deleted post I would have thought that was clear.

I personally dont like racism. I hate and detest it.

Oh Dear.

I thought we were talking about the people who post racist comments........I mistakenly thought that was what this thread was about, not the people who watch the clips on youtube or the merits of posting clips.

I dont want to start a row on someone elses thread.....so I will do the honourable thing :-)

Joking apart, places like youtube are the natural haunt of mentally disturbed and psychotic individuals, who like to gain a reaction from this sort of thing.

Are ya trying to tell me summat Eldrick?

I use youtube lol

*Ophelia.taking a break..*

*Ophelia.taking a break..* Report 20 Jun 2008 09:46

There are a lot of positive clips on youtube...a vast majority quite innocent..Its a place people can put up their favourite clips..of bands..lost pets..funny moments...and for people to comment on..
you saying they are psychotic individuals? ; )
I look up clips mostly..but on occasions do read comments to get an overall opinion...

That is just my opinion of course....

I am beginning to think programmes like Big Brother are creating more problems and conflict...BB was a novelty at first..its just become a circus/zoo...

I was specifically referring to the blatant. crude..racism on the boards of youtube...Elderick..

Well obviously I don't ever watch it myself *cough* just occassionally caught snippets here and there *ahem*.
Do the people posting those comments on youtube not realise that it makes them just as vile as her?
