Actually what he's saying here makes sense. There never really was a comment section below any content till recently (with the internet and shit), you didn't get to watch people's content (in the past would be TV shows and movies), then just leave a remark below for everyone to see.

Now that it's been tried out, it's pretty much proven to be a pretty bad platform for discussion. One liners and jokes will be flooded as top comments. But comments sections now are pretty much a guarantee with most online content nowadays, but the question is "Should people be outraged if the comment section is disabled?"

It's a pretty legitimate question, though I do agree that being able to leave comments shouldn't be an entitlement, I feel that content creators really shouldn't disable a platform for discussion. It's true that it doesn't work, but rather than removing it, there could possibly be room for tweaking it to make it better.

Yh things like Comment sections are in the end just quick gut feeling responses really.
Only a very few in the end do an discussion.

This is why it is good that we have reddit and even MAL and etc. There, ppl at least discuss stuff.
Heck this thread alone proves Digibro's point.

That's where you might be a little mislead by the likes system on YouTube comments, which sorts the comments. Just try sorting your comments by newest, reply a top comment with a post with discussion value or look at some of the longer replies there, you'll definitely be seeing slightly more substantial discussion. This really indicates that people like that exist in the comments, but are merely being drowned out by a not so ideal system.

Exactly, the existence of discussion platforms outside of content comment sections is a short way of proving that the comments section don't work.

I never understood why people take Anime youtubers seriously. Also I haven't seen Digi's face in quite some time, but it's good to see that he still looks like he hasn't showered in over a decade.

And this is pertinent to anime discussion? How?

He's butt hurt about comments? He can just disable them.

Kissmanga has the comment section under every chapter which is nice and I even read it some times, too lazy to come to the chapter discussion so I don't find weird to see comment sections attached to the product.

Reviews of films and games are pretty much attached to the product nowadays to the point that most publishers give them early copies so they can publish the review the date the product is released.

I don't know where you get him hating free speech. What I understood was he didn't think comments should be attached to the video, instead he said people should go talk about it by starting discussions unattached to the video. People can literally discuss the video anywhere else and it shouldn't have to be attached to the original content.

Digibro has been saying the good thing, but he is just another hypocrite. For those who wonder who started the whole SAO suck wave, its Digibro. Eventhou he said the fans can choose not to follow his taste, it doesn't change anything at all as his huge fanbase trust his view to be most correct. The damage has been done yo.

Eh, I'll take some of that last line into consideration at least.

They can do whatever they want in the comments sections, doesn't mean they should.

Also, regardless of the topic, I still don't see how that gives someone the right to be an asshole to somebody.

Digi's worst video to date. Total nonsense and very bad analogies. Where do we start? He talks about how posting comments on a video (or any content apparently) is not a right or whatever. Thing is this isn't about right or whatever, it's about what YT allows as they're a private company. He's well within his "right" to just shutdown the comment section under his own videos, if he chooses not to though, there's no reason users shouldn't feel entitled to leave a comment. He's right that they could go to Discord or Reddit or use messenger pigeons, but what does that matter and, more, importantly, are they entitled to comment in those sites?

His point about comments being "attached" to a video seems to be something he coming back to, so I'll just address it now. They're not, really. I mean, OP embedded this video, and the YT comments are nowhere to be found. Point is, the comment section is not freaking hardsubbed on videos or something like that. If Digi does believe this, then how does taking the comment section to Reddit fix the problem? The comments there (or here) would be "attached" to the video, no?
So his analogies about this are pointless, aside from badly thought out.
Next he makes some emotional appeals to the "good 'ol days" of art criticism when criticism a) was beter and b) only trained critics were listened to. If any of this is true or is preferable to a more open forum, who knows, but Digi definitely expect us to take his word for it that it was better "back in the day".

Digi also seems surprised by some commentators gaining some sort of fame. This is not a new thing or an internet-only thing. Now, if those people become "part of the narrative of the video" (whatever that means) is not clear to me, but it seems like Digi wants to control how people receive his videos. Even in his post-comment section utopia, some guy who just happened to comment on a bunch of Discords or subreddits could gain fame just the same, so unless he limits people's ability to associate with each other, this isn't going to change.
A remarkably bad point.

That was long. I wonder if Digi would think I have "something to say".

Digibro(ny) is the worst YouTuber on earth so why the hell should we listen to him? Even bronies were happy the day his original channel got taken down, and that's saying something since bronies are usually braindead and enjoy cancerous content like Digibro. Every time I see his disgusting face I feel 2 steps closer to hanging myself in my bathroom.

Also his argument is retarded and it's whinging about nothing at best. Why shouldn't comments be attached to YouTube videos? Theoretically it was a place for unprofessional video makers to receive helpful critique and maybe even a thumbs up from the community. You could also meet people in the comments who are cool, maybe you'd make a friend. Sure, that barely applies because YouTube is literally a fucking cesspool of the most severe retardation I have ever witnessed, but I still don't see what this lolicon faggot is whinging about. You can easily ignore comments. Assholes don't get to you if you ignore them.

Amusing for Digibro to have a go at people for being assholes in the comments when he himself is a mega fucking asshole to everyone else in the anime reviewing community on that shitty site.

The thing you need to keep in mind with Digibro is that being an asshole on the internet is literally his job, and he needs to rake in viewers like a crack dealer needs addicts. All his videos are stupid as shit because he knows that's what people will click on.

Now he's in a situation where he's alienated anyone that would actually respond intelligently to his asinine diatribes about dumb bullshit, and he's only left with yes men and angry people that clicked on his video just to call him a fucker in the comments section. Category 2 is way bigger tham category 1.

I'm not surprised that he doesn't want that level of stupidity in his YouTube comments. That system is fucking terrible for discussion anyway: you can't quote a post and they randomly choose to notify anyone in a thread instead of actually notifying the relevant parties in a discussion. But maybe instead of trying to stop people from commenting, he should consider creating content that people can actually discuss? It's not difficult, you just need a thimble full of openness to alternate viewpoints.

I personally prefer anime youtubers who make more original content than "reactions to anime" stuff. Digi seems to be this halfway medium from what I can tell. Composed of some videos that actually took effort in my eyes. Reviews (some are deep dives which I loved, and some are surface level react videos/first impressions which honestly don't do shit for me or really much of anyone else). And then rants like this which I don't know why people would be too offended by.

I mean, it isn't like comments on reviews are allowed to be directly attached on this website. Where is our "free speech"? lol.

As usual though, I just don't normally watch a video like this. I would always prefer someone pointing out anime techniques, history, or just well thought out opinion pieces on more than just one anime, or talking passionately about an anime they really love. I think I prefer when a youtuber talks about a specific animator. I think I always love those compilation videos showing off an animator's work best.Where youtuber says nothing and lets the work speak for itself.

If they aren't going to do that, well might as well make good skits or be really stupid like Melonpan. Nothing wrong with being a super otaku. <3

I don't think that is it.... but if you would prefer to watch a youtuber who I personally think cares the most about his audience and what they have to say, well that would be Linkara. And probably my favorite youtuber.

He says he reads every single comment. And I think by saying he reads every single comment, he gets nicer comments. I think Digibro has no idea how to foster a positive (and hopefully intellectual) community is all. If he had stuck only to properties which attract that sort of person, I think he may have done better. If he had say, asked his viewers questions and maybe to even correct him, he may have gotten better commentators. But learning how to drive your comments section to a more positive space, well this is only something I have seen one youtuber do well at. And that is Linkara.

I think Digibro just has no idea how to foster the type of group he would want to converse with. Which makes him want to sooner shut off the comments, then to actually do any of the work required to get that community as his main base. It could be a reason why he started his youtube in the first place. I think some people search for people equal to them to communicate with. But I guess if I had advice for Digibro on how to foster better comments, it would be to stop being so dismissive of the comments in the first place.... and read every one as if it were fanmail. And then after a while, say he reads every comment. Because it will show in his videos too.

What he is doing right now is, not reading everything people say to him... so I guess what is the use in commenting anyway? But the youtuber I know who reads everything, has the best comments section on youtube.

I mean, the comparison between a manga/book and a Youtube video doesn't hold water the moment Youtube is a social media website. The site is not only about creating and posting content, it is also about sharing, commenting and following it.
This right here. I like Digibro, he's basically the only reason I even use YouTube anymore, but I've gotta disagree with what he's saying. He's missing one of the key points of what makes YouTube different. He can want his ideal website for sharing media, but it's stupid to complain about comments on YouTube videos. As long as he doesn't disable comments on all his videos, I'm not gonna have an issue.

Putting it simply, it all depends on ones beliefs, and since we all have different beliefs, it would be impossible to convince others of what is moral or if one has a right to do something.

I am not the biggest digibro fan, in fact i barely ever watch his content, but i do believe in his point of how people are now too pumped to dislike things because for some reason in this world, it is popular to not like something, especially if it is popular (frozen-let it go). People love voicing their opinions, good or not, and it is easier to critique than it is to praise.

Like I said before, there isn't an easy solution, especially with all the people against this idea because they love being negative and putting others down since they either have no life or are just plain mean and don't care about others.

Woah, a Digibro video on MAL, now I can watch people hate on Digibro and call his video stupid despite not having watched it or missing the point entirely.

Regarding the video, it's true that having dumb comments directly attached to your product can be annoying and it's hard to get rid of them because dumb people don't know they're dumb, like when MAL tried to get rid of shitposting by implementing the character limit but people would just shitpost and then add some bullshit to bypass it instead of rethinking whether or not their comment was useful to the discussion in any way.

The one thing Digibro seems to miss is that for a bunch of channels, the comment section is here to interact with the content creator.

Heck this thread alone proves Digibro's point.
this should be a rule for the internet "critism of digibro will unfortunately invariably lead to comments justifying digibro." Well done to everyone that watched the video and read the comments on this thread before posting everyone else keep trying! But yeah agree with digibro good comments on youtube or whatever would be nice. I know people want attention thats fine but "unless the conversation is interesting, unless you have something to say about the video or an informed point then.. ..no one one should have to read your shit" - digibro at 11:00-11:20

While I do agree that comments like "X show sucks dick" aren't exactly fundamental in any way, it is partly the fault of the content creator himself, as to why his community is that way

You can take other YT channels like jacksepticeye for instance and see the lack of 'shitposts' on his comment sections even if he has to reiterate the fact every vlog.

Point is, although he is referring to the comment section as a whole, he can't really make a sufficient argument about his own comments section given the community he's built due to his nature (really bad from what I've heard :P). Then again, I haven't seen any Digi so I can't really say if it's deserved or not (though judging by all the hate, it seems deserved)
'On-Hold' is another way for a completionist to say 'Dropped'

The only thing that happens when you make a thread about Digibro, is the massive tidal wave of hate. He's like the anti-christ here on MAL. It's not worth it dude.

This would’ve been true for anyone just based on the title and actual actions of this “digibro” individual...

Digibro calls out YouTube Comment section....what?!

Yeah, ok...that’s instantly one of the dumbest things you can do on YouTube, regardless if you have a point or not.

So is he trying to have his own safe space in youtube of all places? LMAO
What is next? He is gonna make his videos private so that only his sheep fans will see them?
I think this anime snowflake will soon stop making videos, good!
I want a cool signature but Idk how to make them.
Liking traps isn't gay.

So the moetrash hippie that made a living out of criticising and nitpicking anime is trying to abolish comments in public websites? Seems legit.

Anyway like usually he is plain wrong, commenting should not be something exclusively to a group of people that someone deems worthy. The good thing about comments is that anyone is able to express themself and presenting good argument to subtains those claims.
I shouldnt need to f*cking make a whole video thesis to try get my point across, that is moronic. If i think something is bad i will criticise it, i am entiteled to do so. If is a sh*ty comment, who cares? People will most likely ridicule it if that is the case.

Still dont know how anyone can take this guy seriously or why is this a theme of discussion for that matter, but whatever.

Actual video title: "Digibro Doesn't Like Free Speech"
I don't think you understand what free speech actually is. It does give you the right to say whatever you want without legal actions beig taken against you, but that is all. It does not protect you at all from private institutions not allowing certain things.

Tangential:
This point, to everyone who uses "free speech rights" or "freedom of speech" to defend their actions when they get everyone around them mad by saying obnoxious things.

All it means is that the government isn't allowed to arrest you for saying them. It doesn't mean that people aren't allowed to give you dirty looks, it doesn't mean that people aren't allowed to argue with you about them, and it doesn't mean that people aren't allowed to tell you to get off their private lawn and take your opinions elsewhere.

And besides, if the best defense for your point is that you have the freedom of speech to say it, then that's the weakest defense of them all.

The YT comment section is a cesspool 99% of the time. I don't see anything wrong with what he said. TotalBiscuit has disabled comments for a while, and he's doing just fine. People will be mad at first, of course. But once they get used to it, then what's the problem? Not everyone comments on every video, if they even comment at all. And not every comment they make is actually about the video or even worth reading.

Youtube comments are the worst comments. But sometimes, I read the comments when they're actually decent or when a huge flame war is going on.

It was always obvious he was an obnoxious snob, but man, that video was the height of elitism. How dare the proles think they have the right to comment on the content they spend their valuable time on.

The moment you start selling and monitizing your content, they have stopped being just "art" and have become a product. And even if I'm not directly paying you with money, I am paying you with my valuable time AND personal data that you sell to the corporations in return for ad revenue. So yes, I have every right to comment on how good or shitty I think your content is, in the way I want to, or discuss anything related to the said content with my other fellow consumers.

Why anime fans are so obsessed with this guy I will never understand.


Now I choke on yesterday
When I was someone and I wonder where forever went
And how our everything came undone
I opened my eyes
And beneath us the heavens died
