6. YouTube is OK

for watching videos, but yeah...I've got to train myself to stay out of its comments section for the sake of my sanity. I'm actually a little bit relieved now that the video got taken down so I won't be tempted to go back on it and deal with those knuckledraggers.
Most of the people who comment on videos there come across as so willfully ignorant. When reading YouTube comments, it's easy to forget that I'm still in the 21st century, and I wonder sometimes if I'm talking to normal adults or children who happen to be trapped in adult bodies. People can't openly be bigots in public without getting reprimanded for it, so they feel the need to be cowards and vent online.
I know that DU isn't perfect and has its share of funny-acting posters, but compared to much of the stuff I read on YouTube, it is like a fresh breath of air here.
