I don't trust videos that have comments disabled, they're usually shills or BS.
Depends on the content
If it's a product or service, then I'll find other sources before buying
If it's an ~~academic source~~ lecture recording or news story, then I prefer comments to be disabled. Shows me that the channel cares enough about it
if academic or news source is scared of being called out, i don't trust them. yes, i do understand that with worthy comments there is a lot of garbage, but that is cost of doing business.
I meant lecture recordings that are only meant for the students in the class
Sure we can invite external opinions but it's not worth the trouble. People can call out the stuff elsewhere
you can have them unlisted, so only people with the link have access. once you make them public and disable comments, it is just suspicious.
That’s good so when someone releases a 4 hour video about me I can just pause my comments.
lol that was my thought too.
This is going to be great for people distributing misinformation.
Good work google, making sure people have an even HARDER time distinguishing reality on your platform.
Dude this is only like 10 years too late. Youtubers deserve comorehensive moderation and curstion tools. Youtube comments should be at the forefront of video discussion.
This is a most excellent place for technology news and articles.
