Some research on people discussing and/or creating ideas around wanting to 'fix' YouTube comments:
- plugin called Comment Snob for Firefox to filter comments the user doesn't like
- guy "reading" comments people left on his youtube videos
- the Herp Derp plugin that rewrites all comments on Youtube to "herp derp"
- Talk&Comment app that lets you "make and send voice notes on any app" including comments on social media (most similar to my idea, obviously. in an ideal world my idea wouldn't be an option)
- This idea that YouTube creators should moderate their own comments and the nearly 10 year history of youtube trying to "fix the comments section"
- at the WIP show I'll be using this CNN video on YouTube about the Florida school shooting because it has some pretty terrible comments and is a very current issue
