I have been deluged with Youtube spam recently by a ad-supported diet site. I try my best to stem the tide against their propagation, but if it gets much worse, I may have to disable comments on my old videos. I am surprised that the same company that owns blogger and many other blogging toolsets can’t limit the amount of outright spam being posted to videos. It is the same comment being generated over and over from different accounts all from third world nations. I can’t even implement the simplest of all controls a CAPTCHA filter or simple bot catcher (like enter the word “orange” field) in the comment section. I have complained to Youtube with no help.
What do you guys think I should do? Let spam roam free in the comment section of my videos or disable comments on all videos older than say 4-6 months?
So here is my response once and for all… Have you ever heard of the intellectus424dietcom? It must be all-spam diet because that is apparently all consists entirely of eating spam and the exercise is posting spam on people’s videos.
