Is Google really doing this? Killing themselves? Hashtags? No reply button? Forcing me to connect to G+ and use my real name? This can't be happening!

For those of you who don't know, Youtube comments now require a Google Plus account. On the surface it looks like some external force is compelling users to join a social network against their will. But, if you ignore the fact that Google Plus exists (and I pretty much do), it's not so bad. The new comment system is actually pretty cool in that when people you know comment on something, you'll see that before everyone else's stuff in addition to highly rated comments (sort of like Reddit), and some other neat features. It's not half bad, actually.

New comment system sucks, or at least what people do with it.

See, it's not that bad, but almost every freaking video I go to has ASCII art that isn't appropriate, and on top of that, THE LINKS, THE LINKS, don't click them!

Ha, I still remember when my pastor's speech about youtube. He was like THIS IS A SITE WHERE KIDS CAN SEARCH FOR "ANYTHING". lol

As for the comment section, my only complaint is that they shouldn't show some of the replies to a popular comment, it should by optional like the rest.

I don't care much for the comment system, old or new. I'm just on YT for the videos.

That being said, they really need to get rid of commercials in play lists.

Yes.

No.

Hashtags?
YouTube and Google are two of the biggest sites on the Internet. It's only natural that they use things like Twitter, as much of their sites' demographic uses it.

No reply button?
That's only for comments that were made before the change, as since the whole system was being completely redone, somethings couldn't be coded with a grandfather clause.

Forcing me to connect to G+
So? It's a free service. What's so bad?

and use my real name?
Only if you give your real name.

This can't be happening!
Oh, stop whining. Everything is much more organized, and you don't even need to check your e-mail to see if someone replied to a comment. It's the best thing that happened to YouTube since the site started.

It's time-consuming, not money.

If you used google+ before, and still wanted the anonymity of youtube, you couldn't have both.

In Useless arguments in YouTube comments, which are prone to happen, the # symbol is used to go point by point to people's objections. This really does screw with it.

No, you just log in once when you get on the site, and that's assuming that you aren't getting auto-logged in already (like I am).

I don't recall any other updates overhauling the system this much.

I get an email, "Someone has commented on your video."
Ok, I go to the YouTube inbox to reply. Great, that's not working.
I have to go through the 100's of G+ notifications to find that one, then click it to go to the video.
Then, the comment is not there. I have to do Newest first to see it. Ok.
Then, when I finally find it, there's no reply button. Now what?!

Where the heck did the reply buttons go?
Why are irrelevant, 6 month old comments with no thumbs up "top comments"!?

WTF?
