Tombstone Boycotts Google

Well, I wasn't expecting this to happen. Tombstone has recently uploaded a video titled "YouTube comments disabled". In the video he explains that he has chosen to close comments down on all of his songs and videos because he disagrees with how Google is handling the new comment system. Don't get me wrong, I love the guy, but this just seems a little be silly. The video is worded as if he is protesting, as if others join and do what he has then Google will have no choice but to change the comment system back.

There's certainly been a ton of whining going on concerning this subject, but I ask you all who disagree with Google's actions just one thing. Have you even given the new comment system a go? It's by far superior then the previous. The layout is neater, the inclusion of plus tagging people is a fantastic little addition. Replies are displayed better now and the best part is that you can choose to comment either public or to specfic Google+ circles. This creates even more conversation, rather than just one big messy rant there are now several conversations you can enter. I know it might be annoying that Google are forcing Google+ onto people and I agree that them forcing people to change their YouTube channel names to their Google+ names is just silly. But, to be frank and I have said this is on many occasions, Google has done a lot worse to YouTube that changed it fundamentally and we all just sat and let it fly by without even a moan.

Oh and The Tomb has a Subreddit now.. for some reason.
