YouTube Comments Needed!

Post by Roger Barr »

As I am sure you know, when one searches on "Homeopathy" in youtube, what comes up primarily are hit piece videos such as: a video by Kurzgesagt, a video by CheckDent.com and a Ted Talk by the Underwhelming-Randi magician.  These are poorly researched pieces. And the comments to all these videos are pretty lame.

I have written carefully worded long comments to all of these videos. But of course, the algorithm that determines what the "Top" comments are has allowed my comments to drift into oblivion, even tho they are only a little over 2 weeks old.  The "Top" comments algorithm is in large part determined by how many comments, a comment receives.  Please take a few minutes to comment on my comments so that viewers are shown an alternative viewpoint higher in the listing.  Its easy to do; it doesn't matter if you only put a couple words in the comment.

Here are the links to the videos:

Under the video on the YouTube.com site, at the top of the comments you will see the total number of comments followed by a "Sort by" button. Click on the button and choose "Newest First". Scroll down a ways and then do a search (PC: Ctrl+F, Mac: Cmd+F) for "Bard"
It should be the first hit on that search; scroll down further and try again if it is not found.
Then enter as many comments as you care to make. There. Can. Be. One. Word. in each comment. The algorithm doesn't care.

I have only responded to 3 of the many hit pieces. Take a few minutes to make your own responses to all the others. I will comment on them if you let us know about them.

Thanks,
Roger

Here is another hit piece video that I have responded to.
Access my comment the same way as above: Sort YouTube comments by Time. Search (Ctrl or Cmd+F) for "Bard".
Make as many short comments as you care to make. Be negative or positive! I dont care; neither does the algorithm.

So 27 viewers of this message thread. I think I have seen exactly one comment posted on YouTube. Please take 5 minutes.

I have responded to another hit piece video:

The comment should be right near the top when sorted by date or Top comments.
But you just have to hit Ctrl/Cmd+F and search on "Bard" to find it.
