Looks like they're forcing Google Plus on everyone with the new comment system, along with a lot of other YouTube features that you'll have to go through Plus to view/use. Seems they're making a last ditch effort with this integration. Probably because Google Plus has been such an utter failure since its launch.

Let me just say, this is probably one of the worst changes YouTube's done so far. All those awful front page and channel design changes don't compare with this goof. smh

Possibly the worst update in the history of youtube. I figure once enough people complain they will switch back. No one likes Google+.

It's so messed up right now it's almost comical. Somehow I have two profiles and half my stuff seems to have been moved or deleted. I haven't taken the time to figure it out, but everything seems fubared now.

It's a good time to ditch Youtube. The service is getting worse by the minute. However stupid and hateful most commentaries were, they were very entertaining.

Change is everywhere, at work, with life, in cars, computers, ect. .. Can't ever hide from change. Funny thing is you might not like change, but if you go back in time, you'll be like WTF ? this is retarted, and then you'll realize why change was made.

I can't reply to old comments made before the change, but at least now I can post new comments now that my YouTube profile is connected to Google+. And I can see new Google+/YouTube comments as well. :)

The entire site is one big clusterfuck.

The keep changing stuff that don't need changing or adding features that are not needed.

It feels like they took a step back to 2007 before we were able to reply to comments and had to check the video hourly/daily to keep a conversation going.
