Google ruining YouTube with Google+ integration

    So I'm pissed off because Google is fucking up YouTube hard. I've been on YT since 2006 and have worked hard on 50+ videos, but I'm about ready to delete my account and be done with it.

    A while back they fucked up my channel design and forced everybody into a cookie cutter mould. I was just getting my channel to look awesome and organize it the way I wanted, and then boom it looked the same as everyone else's.

    Today I log on and get a notification that I can no longer see the comments people make on my videos on YouTube, but will instead have to look at them on Google+, my e-mail, or my phone? What the fuck? Why the hell shouldn't I be able to see the comments on the site that they're made on?

    Not to mention that every few days they try to force me to connect my account to G+, and even though they're still letting me decline I'm sure that there will be no option eventually. That's prolly when I'll go ahead and get rid of the account altogether.

    This whole G+ integration is horse shit and they're just trying to get their lame ass Facebook competitor to be successful by fucking over all these YouTube users.

    I've had about enough of Google lately.

        Google now has majority market share in just about everything, which could be good or bad.

        I'm not really a fan of G+, but yeah this is stupid.

        Haha Dillinger, I know exactly what you mean

        Not only that, I never used Google plus so far and yes I did see the notice, it's horrible. But, did you ever mention the annotations updates as well? Every time annotations got updated, it was for the worse. Not long ago I was very satisfied with the options and the limits of the sizes of annotations that somewhat gave a good consistent structure. What does Google? It updates annotation and now all sorts of sizes and ridicilous size adaptations are being implemented as well.

        HORRIBLE

        I just can't believe it, they're changing policy, annotations, channel design, Google+ integration, and it's all for the worse. The only very positive thing Google ever did was monetization though, I give them the credit, but their updates are, no offence, HORRIBLE.

        Also, on their own Google page, instead of having everything nice and easy on one bar, they changed it to a stupid app button where I have to fucking scroll down for translator, and name whatnot they changed for the worse...

        To add, I literally stopped using annotations for the last 30 videos or so, and my uploads have gone downhill considerably hard, just as an example of how much I dislike their changes. It literally discourages me

          There was a post on reddit a while back using adblock to fix this problem, or maybe it was something else. Either way I will delve into the tubes and if I find anything, i'll edit this post.

          EDIT: Might want to go here and see what you can do: http://www.youtube.com/account

          EDIT2: Apparently there's really no fix, and if you DO decide to link accounts and then temporarily disable it, you can fuck up your youtube log-in. I'd rather stick with saying "fuck off" each time it pops up instead of chancing a lock-out.

          Sorry chaps.

                  The old, old YT layout was the fucking best!!! background image, banner image and comments all on the same screen! I loved it and had a partner page back then with a fucking ton of subs! the new youtube is lame! and I simply can't stress enough how it makes videos and channels so generic....

                  Lately I'v been thinking of hitting youtube hard with a video a week and re-grow my killers and company channel and stop working for other people but I just hate the layout and the big push for G+!! Stop trying to push goole down our throats!!

                    I've already found many amusing things from the comments by now.
                    The comments don't seem to have any limits, so I've found:

                    Goatse ASCII
                    Dickbutt ASCII
                    An entire long ass clopfic. (Yeah, it's a term, and wasn't even a pony related video to begin with.)
                    The same line posted about a thousand times.

                    Oh, and i think it's possible to play scripts through that shit as well.
