(Note: This is an extension of a message I left on a petition)
The petition is here(it was started by an anonymous person, not me). I’m also trying to stand up for the millions of innocent YT users who were forced to join G+.
The worse thing about this is that users of their own Chrome browser are unable to comment due to a bug that also prevents users from uploading channel banners.
I’ve watched Google’s own video of their “upgrade”(more like a DOWNGRADE or even an UNINSTALL) where the (censored) employee who designed this (censored) thinks we use the COMMENT box as a SHARE box. Just go to that video and see how many dislikes there are, in this case 4973 as of the time of writing this post. I really hate how the view setting is preset to “Top comments” and you can’t change that default. In fact, this is what a few users had to say(altered to keep their privacy and my blog’s reputation afloat)
HATE YOU (Gplus user)YouTube No one wanted this. No one. I don’t think anyone on Google+ wanted to be added to the cesspool that is the YouTube community. (Gplus user)Google+ has a unique community… I’m really not trying to have brainless spammers commenting like “Hey! I got free (insert name of popular electronic device here) at this cool website! go to example dot com forward-slash enter to join with my referal code 12345 !”
I hate you so much right now. I’m going to keep it cool and only use the other services until you sort this mess out. The Internet is not all rainbows and sunshine man. Like someone commented on this video: It’s full of trolls, (censored), and other (censored) (censored) that shouldn’t be allowed in public; let alone in front of a computer.

Two reasons why it’s really horrible.
1) Top comments will be set to default, meaning less exposure to other comments and having to change it for every video.
2) If you reply to older comments, your comment willl be placed way down the comments list.
Google: Hey facebook!! Check out all of these new accounts we’re getting on Google Plus!! Pretty awesome, huh?!!
Facebook: Hey Google, check out all of these people on here that actually like the website they’re using and are signing up to it simply because they want to and not because they feel compelled to in order to use certain features that they used to have on another website that you guys didn’t even create. By the way, our social media website is still bigger than yours.
Google: Yeah, well…YOU GUYS SUCK!!
In fact, if you did create your G+ intentionally(without Google forcing you to do so), then leave a message on your profile and temporarily deactivate your G+ account. Make sure YT doesn’t auto-share anything to your G+, and remove the G+ link from your YT profile if you’re that angry.
I wish that person who designed the feature be FIRED from Google because they should be ashamed that they are turning a newfangled social network we would try to get in to during private beta to something that’s as annoying as mobile-only simulation games like Hay Day, or simply, they are turning Google Plus to Google Minus.
Things get worse (or good) if you have an Android (phone) with the new version 4.4, which I’d rather call “Key Lime Pie”. SMS through a cell network ends up in the G+ Hangouts client. Allowing the G+ client app to access your camera content enables “Auto-Awesome”, their answer to HTC’s Zoe, and if you have your phone number on your G+ profile and call someone, they will see your G+ photo.
Just so you know, *I’m leaving +Google+ * because they’re *bullying +YouTube * with intergration that made a turn for the worst. I’m no longer making any new posts, and I understand that the G+ team is trying to *bypass advertising on AdSense* and used forced integration to get people to use it in place of Facebook. Personally I think that this is *unacceptable behaviour* and thanks +google for a *great social network that was fun while it lasted*.
Update: I found this online.
