Let's admit it, sometimes we like reading comments that make us laugh, or smile, or RAGE WITH FURY (I'm looking at you, Bieber attacking metal heads). So when do you usually read them? I personally read them while the video is playing, and I scroll up and down between the video and the comments.

I usually read them when the video is loading and some comments make me mad. Why talk negative about a band when you are going to or already watched the video? Makes no sense to me, also the stupidity amazes me.

While it's playing. Most videos I watch are mainly for the sound. ex. songs

I read them while listening sometimes. I usually find that people who post hate comments either a) have no idea what they're talking about OR b) just wanna whine and moan.

Edit: Btw, I am a Bieber attacking Metalhead. *ahem* Where do I sign up to attack Justin Bieber?

I was referencing those guys that post comments like

Attention metal lovers! On Halloween we are all going to go to Justin Bieber's "Baby" music video! Everyone "dislike" it and post hateful comments! Metal rules the world!


Now I consider myself a metalhead, and guys like these make me cringe so badly because they make us all look like douchebags. If you're one of those people then I don't have much respect for you as a person. But if not, you're cool

They're called Democrats.


ZING!

On topic, I always scroll down when I'm watching a video, but usually regret it.
PRO TIP: Comments=Spoilers for everything you can imagine.
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and class less and free
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see

I usually only read comments commenting on teh funniness of a funny video after the video is done.

...modes and scales are still useless.

I read them twice, while the video is loading and after I'm done watching it. I get a different perspective on the comments after I've watched the video. Of course this is only for videos that I care about, if it's just out of boredom then I only read the comments once.

I ALWAYS copypasta the...

"if you don't copy and paste this in fifty bazillionz videos you will die...FOR GOOD...there is no respawn."

the "omg i can't believe 50 ppl hit the 'don't like' button wtf!" comments make me cringe.
yo.

Usually while it's loading, but if the video is just of a screenshot or just a person talking in the same location with nothing interesting happening int he background, I read during.
The content of this signature is pretty much irrelevant
#16
Most of those Justin Bieber attacking guys are just fucking losers, I personally don't give a damn what he does with himself, he isn't bothering me so Most of those guys aren't legit metalheads, they're just frustrated teens looking to fit in by hating this guy, they pervert the image of a true metalhead.

i strongly dislike these comments:


LISTEN UP EVERYONE VERY IMPORTANT

The Metal Militia will be attacking Justin Biebers BABY video

on September 1st onward,Remember to dislike, put a comment and flag on the baby vid on sep 1

We need your help to destroy this modern autotune music that

has ruled the world. Copy paste this comment on every good music

video such as: Metallica, Pink Floyd, Dio, AC/DC, led zep, the doors, Beatles,Rolling Stones, Iron Maiden, hendrix,Guns n' Roses etc

thumbs up

While watching. Though it was MUCH better when they scrolled sideways, and not down. Then you could read while watching.

Those 'I liked the 0.01 - 4.45 part the best' comments really piss me off
#22
When it's playing. I only use youtube for music really.
I don't mind silly comments usually, everyone's entitles to a measure of stupidity.

What pisses me off, is that I can't go on a single video without at least one comment comparing the artist/genre to bloody Justin Bieber or Lady Gaga or someone.
Come on people, use the comments to praise the artist/song, not bitch and moan about someone else!

I usually listen to the song and read the comments at the same time. It peeves me off big-time when I listen to Buddy Rich videos only to find asshats saying Travis Barker is a better drummer than Buddy Rich.
#24
I dont read them, I got tired of the stupid comments and got a script for greasemonkey to remove them.
#26
Another thing which is annoying is each time you go on Metallica video, there is always comments like Megadeth are so much better, Dave Mustaine is a better guitarist then Kirk/ he wrote most of Kill 'Em All and Ride The Lightning/ Kirk only uses wah and pentatonic while Dave Mustaine is the faster and better. Dave mustaine only co-wrotted: Metal Militia, Phantom Lord, Jump in the Fire, The 4 Horsemen, Ride the Lightning and Call Of Ktulu.

Whilst in Megadeth video's you always get comments like Metallica is better and so forth.

both bands are good!

I also dislike Ah im so annoyed that bands such as *insert band here* is better than Beiber or any pop group.

I also dislike: ewwww Pop sucks. etc...........

is there any music-related video that doesn't have a comment about Justin Beiber?

I saw one on a Gorguts vid today, lol.

Not on Rush videos you don't see Bieber comments. Or most prog videos for that matter.

Kind of off-topic, but I'd like to take any commenter who does the bullshit elitist "*number of people who disliked video* need to get their heads examined lolzorz" and trample them under the hooves of a medieval Mongolian army.

I don't read the comments any more because youtube's terrible comment system makes it impossible to tell what going on.

I like to read the comments because it makes me feel smart.


This. Occasionally, I'll post a comment I know will cause a shit storm just to see what funny shit people say when they're angry.

When I only need my ears for the video, I usually read comments while it's playing. But sometimes, when I'm watching a cover or some song performed live, I keep my eyes on the video and read comments later.
I hate those " xxx people missed the like button " comments too, in some cases they're completely right, and those dislike button guys are just being jerks, but generally everyone has its own opinion, I mean for god sakes they don't like the video ... they don't have to justify their selves, move on !

I do that too occasionally

Usually I read once during the video, then once later if I found it interesting.

You say Dizzee Rascal, I say 30 Seconds to Mars!
You say rap, I say METAL!!!
You say pop, I say DIE!

I've trained myself not to scroll down to any internet comment sections. Even the news articles here on UG. My stress levels have decreased significantly since i've starting doing this.
