    YouTube And Google+ Grow Closer: All Users Can Now Switch Their Usernames To Their Google+ Profiles

    YouTube’s comment section isn’t exactly known for being a hotbed of in-depth intellectual conversations. One of the reasons for this, some would argue, is the fact that YouTube still lets people post comments using handles like ‘cutepuppies99’ without having to reveal your real identity. Starting today, however, you will have the option to use your Google-wide… Read More

    61 Percent Of Disqus Comments Are Made With Pseudonyms

    One of the unending debates in blogging circles is about the value of comments. How do you encourage the best comments and discourage the anonymous trolls? Do you even need comments?  Or do you enforce civility by requiring real names, through the use of Facebook comments (which is what we currently use on TechCrunch) at the expense of discouraging conversation? But there is a middle… Read More

    Facebook Comments Epitomizes Everything I Hate About Facebook

    It’s been a month since we introduced Facebook Comments round these parts, time enough to have given it some serious consideration. And my conclusions are as follows: …are you kidding me? This is the best a $75 billion company could come up with? Isn’t Facebook supposed to be the new home of software’s best and brightest? Is this some kind of elaborate practical… Read More

  • The best comment ever

    I knew we’d probably get plenty of comments on the iPad Review and I honestly enjoy the back and forth. But there’s one type of comment we always see and it basically says “Why is this on my browser?” Clearly, commenter Krugeri knows the answer: our commenters have been kidnapped by an international group of terrorists and are being forced to read reviews against… Read More

  • Wanted: Comment shills for a "large project"

    Are you in the Harrisburg area? Are you able to type in English? Well some weird company wants you to shill for them, offering $50 for your trouble. Here’s the post: We are an internet marketing company that increases market awareness for our clients and there is a large project with a March 29th deadline, requiring 50 comments for each brand.

  • Best of: Stupid Android Market comments by slightly stupid people

    One of the great things about Android Market is that you can see what everyone has to say about the applications they’ve downloaded. Very useful in figuring out if you should really download that app called “Alien Blood Bath” or just avoid it all together. The system, however, is slightly flawed. It appears that no one is really moderating these comments, and they usually end… Read More

    How multitudinous in this forum are references Nautical port behind, disingenuous users?

  • Today in CG Comments: I am become Death, the buyer of Chanel

    ML Smith of some weird blogs commented on our pithy commentary between Audrina and Audrina’s co-worker on The Hills describing the Large Hadron Collider. Instead of a reasoned debate about the relative merits of Audrina vs. Heidi we were privy to long-winded commentary on Nagasaki and the potential for a second “Big Bang.” A short snippet: CLIC
    ML Smith Perhaps I have… Read More

  • In comments, Tweeter employees are just like us

    In response to our post on Tweeter shutting down, a brave Tweeter employee dropped us a line: I’m a Tweeter Employee, and let me tell you firsthand, our management is 100% responsible for our failure. They sit in the Glass Palace up in Canton MA, where it seems every two weeks they change the companies direction. Last week we were supposed to be Crestron Dealers who gave $60K… Read More

  • YouTube/MacBook hilarious comments round-up

      I enjoy any well-articulated, insightful, and/or hilarious comments left here on CrunchGear very much but I really, really get a kick out of the crazy-ass, aggressive, maniacal comments left on YouTube videos. Hit the jump to read some comments left about the probably-fake MacBook video that surfaced earlier this morning. Just a warning that there’s some harsh language… Read More
