Probably the best and worst thing to happen to anyone on YouTube is getting a comment on one of your videos. It's both the best and the worst because it could be either something you want to see, or something you don't want to see. For almost every person who runs a youtube channel, there comes a point where reading comments becomes unbearable. even if they're good. Here I will explain 5 types of comments I don't like to see:
Note: These are not specific to elevator enthusiasm. This is also NOT an update to my comment policy.
1. Destructive criticism. As I mentioned earlier, if someone does something you don't like, don't tell them you don't like it and leave it at that! Give them a legitimate reason why you think it's a bad idea.
2. Asking who or what something is. Seriously, it's 2016. Google it!
3. Telling me you're unsubscribing. I'm not going to quit or cater content to you just because you don't like what I do. If you were my only subscriber, then I MIGHT, but you're not.
4. Self-promotion. Thankfully, I haven't had many people do it, but asking me to subscribe to you won't make me subscribe to you. I subscribe to channels I like to watch. Now if you share one of your videos and compare it to mine, then that's ok.
5. Stopping fights in comment threads. If you post comments like "Can we stop now?" or "Stop the drama!" in the comments, hoping that a fight or string of complaints will stop, it doesn't work. It only litters the thread with more pointless comments that serve no purpose. It's my channel. If I have a problem with it, I will take care of it. I've seen this elsewhere, especially on Facebook. Doing so only litters the thread with useless comments and gets you involved in the fight. Let the admin or thread starter deal with it. (this can include comments like "What does this have to do with (insert topic here)?")
