The old comment section was simple, efficent and slick....why change it to a cumbersome cluster of words and bland color that makes finding and replying to comments difficult? 

To:
Bring back the old comment system and stop forcing Google+ on those that don't want it

Sincerely,

      I want to thank all of you for signing this petition! I never expected to wake up the next morning to see this many signatures! But that dose not mean this is over. We have to prove to Google and YouTube that we want to have choice on a "user run" website like this and we will not let their user un-friendly policies get in the way! Keep sharing and spreading this petition everyone! We need to fight back as the people who made this site the biggest video sharing site in the first place! Stop alienating your users!

      Because I loved the old comment system it was so fair. Now, in every video I watch I can't read the comments because only the negative ones are displayed at the top idk why Google chose to do this? I don't understand?

      I maintain two YouTube channels, one for a community not-for-profit org and one personal channel to which I upload videos on a variety of subjects. I didn't think anything of to when they wanted me to put the two channels under a "profile", and at first everything seemed to work OK but suddenly I'm having real problems. When I try to upload to my personal channel it insists on uploading to the NFP channel. Then YT created a second completely new channel with THE SAME NAME and uploads to that. What was a perfectly useable system has gone haywire since Google+. It seems if I delete my Google+ profile I'll lose all the subscribers and comments. This is a total madness ...

      Because of comments not showing up thanks to the new auto detecting spam system.

      Because you cannot dislike comments anymore, and because "Top ranked comments" aren't always the ones with most likes.
