Well I was watching Forsaken_Angel24's video on making stefans. So I was reading through the comments and so much people were saying stupid shit like "What is FBR?". So your probably thinking "Well no shit they are learning how of course they won't know what FBR is!". Now that's the point. I think about 5 more people asked the same fucking question. Example:

One of the first comments:
grand1011: wat is fbr?
FA_24: foam backer rod. It is used as a foam to make homemade nerf darts that shoot farther and more accurate.

So your thinking people would stop asking that by now right? Well here is the next comment:

Heli0: wats fbr?!!!
FA_24: Wow some people just dont get it.
fbr stand for: Foam Backer Rod.
(Look two comments down) (652 NOTE: Up in this case...)

And then another different person asked the same question aswell. Can't people just take a minute to read?

So not only have I noticed this with this video, but with a lot others aswell. Here is another example. Sorry I don't know the link.

Description:
A bunch of United States soldiers were on a balcony like thing shooting on a road, a car eventually stops and they shoot at that aswell also making some... inappropriate comments. So then at the end of the video it clearly said no one innocent was killed in the video. Also you can hear near the end that they were getting fired back. Some guy said something like "a loser round almost hit my head".

So there was a whole bunch of comments of stupid idiots not being able to read saying shit like "OH SHIT THE US IS SO CORRUPTED WHY WERE THEY SHOOTING AT INNOCENT PEOPLE! THATS WHY I HATE THE STUPID WAR IN IRAQ". Even though it said in the video no one was hurt.

Well that's just my rant for today...

Questions or Comments are welcome.

I agree; the large majority of members at youtube are crazy/stupid. There are some gems though, like that make good movies. However most of the Nerf stuff on there is literally horrific it's so dumb.

Yeah, Youtube is almost as depressingly retarded and sick as Myspace. Just think, if we didn't have a Code of Conduct and admins, NerfHaven would look like that. Although some things I see here - including my first post, heh - are almost as stupid. At least we haven't gotten any of those fucking dating ads and chain comments.

I read some dumb comments some times.
Most of the time if the spelling or grammar isn't correct I will just ignore it until they know how to type properly.
Sometimes when its really bad I will just delete their post, making the world a better place.

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Im just not the angel you knew.

I've even noticed an increasing amount of idiots who make movies. For example, thier is a kid on youtube who makes nothing but movies about how he has the Handcannon in RE4. For those who are unfimiliar with RE4 or the handcannon, RE is a game about zombies and the handcannonj is the holy grail of zombie ownage. It makes anyones day. This kid (I say kid because he is WAY to young to play teen games) has about 5 movies calling people who say he doesn't have the handcanon "dumbfucks and haters". So in answer to your question, Youtube is full of both idiot watchers and idiot movie makers. Thankfully we have people like FA24 to keep some level of intelligence on Youtube. Sadly, the whole internet one day will be pluaged by these "uber-n00bs". I will weep when that day comes.

I noticed that one. Blaming your own stupidity and arrogance on other people as their jealousy makes you the epitome of retardation.

YouTube is also recognized as one of the most notorious online hangouts for trolls, spammers, spambots, and the classic person with no life who feels that he must make himself appear almighty to draw his attention away from his puny dick for a few moments. MySpace is one of the others. Basically, any forum or general-use site with no control or selective membership approvals becomes like this. That's why there is a decreasing number of retards here as well: because we have an effective staff that monitor the boards daily (or at least one Admin/Mod a day).

As for the users who make terrible Nerf videos, and those who comment in the general dumbass fashion, I would personally delete every one of their responses. If I had that ability. They can be avoided by disabling comments on your video, posting a link here, and having true Nerfers respond with either praise, questions, or constructive criticism.

That would be like damning the NH staff to hell.

Seriously, every youtube video turns into a political debate about the war in Iraq.

You'd think they'd stop bitching and write to their congressmen or find some other venue where political debate is more acceptable? Perhaps they just don't know enough and would get eaten alive in a real political argument.

I would weep for them if they were forced into that. I eat up enough of my day watching Family Guy clips, I don't even want to know what it would be like to sort through the hundreds of comments that many videos get.

You know what they say it's always September somewhere on the internet.


Is that a reference to "Wake Me Up When September Ends"?

Just ignore Youtube stupidity. Delete comments, disable them, and/or if it's not your own video, just ignore them. Some of those users need attention in order to breed - deny them that and they fade away. This topic is becoming a bandwagon/me too topic. We know that many Youtube users are dumb; we know how to deal with them. What is the point of further discussion? Get outside and Nerf or something.

God no.

In the early days when the internet was young, there was often a large influx of n00bs in usenet, IRC, and so forth as new users discovered their schools' (often new) internet connections. Later on, internet adoption in homes skyrocketed and the influx became constant, leading many to say "it's always September somewhere on the internet." 1996 is often considered to be the tipping point, or "the year September never ended".
