  • And the Fandom Rejoiced: When clicking on a replying comment, one can now see the previous comment that was being replied to, a huge fix from having to previously search hundred of comments to find it.
  • Complaining About People Not Liking the Show: The Memetic Mutation of "{Insert number of dislikes a video has here} People Missed the Like Button."
    • Never Live It Down: Some dislikes are on accident. Have fun being harassed about contributing to the dislike meter in future comments anyway. Though it is all anonymous.
  • Critical Research Failure: Example provided by the moderators of YouTube: so apparently Toei Animation now owns Rocko's Modern Life and is in a position to request clips of it be taken down. Yeah, YouTube missed by a distance of pretty much the other side of the planet...
    • The whole account was taken down, not just that video, so if there was also Super Sentai, Power Rangers, Kamen Rider, or Digimon on that channel, that would explain it, and thus not be CRF. However, there are probably other examples of this trope.
    • Additionally, this can also occur with certain songs, such as this video of the song "Madonna", which has its artist inaccurately labeled as "Madonna". That is not correct, as the song's actual artist is the K Pop Girl Group known as Secret. Coincidentally, Madonna herself has also recorded a song called "Secret", although the video's label manages to give correct attribution to the song's original artist.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Among the seemingly unending pile of comments, many witty remarks can cause this to occur, nowadays usually located in the "Top Comments" section.
  • Discredited Meme: Comment memes tend to stick around past their expiration dates.
  • Dude, Not Funny: Most of the community, which is made up of incredibly rude young people, fails to be funny in the first place.
  • Fan Dumb: The comments are filled with this. Best examples are probably in comedic videos, where fans of the parodied artist will miss the point and insult the author (just look for any "Weird Al" Yankovic video).
  • Fan Hater: Some people will not only troll videos of bands/works they don't like, while harassing their fans—but some will even go as far as to upload videos that insult said fans of the band/work.
  • GIFT: The YouTube comments section can be filled with this. Quite a few Youtube videos often lampshade and parody this.
  • Glurge: Many animal videos.
  • Hate Dumb: The comments are filled with this. This goes double for popular works, triple if it involves Twilight and Justin Bieber, quadruple if it involves the United States.
  • Internet Backdraft
  • Misplaced Nationalism
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks:
    • The forcing of the Google Accounts. Hope you got a Yahoo! account instead. Otherwise, you'd better have a mobile phone. Don't have one? You're screwed.
    • They also completely screwed up the main page, making it fairly unorganized.
    • "YouTube Channels 2.0", introduced in 2009, got a lot of flak.
      • And then history repeats itself with 3.0.
    • Also when they removed the 1-5 star rating system, changing it simply to "Like" or "Dislike".
  • Ruined FOREVER: Any video that gets a dislike. If you dislike a video, you're a piece of trash who hates everything remotely pleasant in the world and needs to be murdered, according to some of the comments.
