Dear Uncle Jafa,
I quite like YouTube. It's a fantastic medium for filmmakers, musicians, bloggers, etc. on a budget to upload their videos to the masses. Of course there are problems with it. The comments seem to be the number one issue, as you have thousands of ignorant responses in this digital age, where you can stay somewhat anonymous. It's easy to leave hateful comments from behind a computer screen. There are also plenty of terrible videos, but the amount of quality stuff, at least in my opinion, outweighs the bad.
But, that's not really what your thread was about. I understand what you're saying. Threads seem to lack creativity in many forums, so it's easy to let videos do the talking for you. Instead of coming up with an original idea, it's easy to say: Check this video out man!! That's my take on your intellectual quandary.
